Scarlett Johansson teases Civil War's "psychological twists"

Scarlett Johansson has been teasing what we can expect from Captain America: Civil War, with the star having taken a first look at the script. And while she stops short of the traditional "darker" description, she does mention the prospect of "psychological twists" to come.

"I have read the script for Civil War," Johansson tells Collider. "You know, the film has a very different feeling than anything of Marvel’s that I’ve read or been a part of before. These films are—I don’t think darker is the right word because there’s definitely always going to be some kind of levity, and that comes in a form of humour or hope."

"When you compare these films to like Batman, it’s a different feeling obviously. It’s a different audience experience, but as the stakes loom larger and larger I think these films are kind of maturing with the audience; so there’s even more complex psychological twists that I sort of hadn’t necessarily anticipated."

With the Avengers set to be critically divided, we'd imagine there will be a fair amount of soul-searching ahead for Black Widow and co. Directed by the Russo brothers, Captain America: Civil War will open in the UK on 29 April 2016 and the US on 6 May 2016.
