There are several reasons why the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier seems poised to reach new creative heights for a Marvel Studios production, not least of which is that Cap’s (Chris Evans) coworkers at S.H.I.E.L.D. - Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) – seem to be treated like his genuine equals in the film, rather than glorified eye candy or kowtowing sidekicks.

A new promotional clip for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been unveiled.
Despite collaborating on "many different missions" in the intervening period, Chris Evans adds that the duo are still "an odd pairing".
"[Black Widow] has very questionable morality and makes a living lying," he continues, "Captain couldn't do it if he tried."
"[She's] a very strong, independent, intelligent woman who has seen the darkest places," adds Johansson, "and we get to play with that a little bit."

Andrew Garfield reportedly opposed plans for the Oscars Batkid segment.
The Amazing Spider-Man actor arrived at rehearsals for the awards ceremony with a rewritten script, believing the original to be exploitative, insiders told The Wrap.
The show's producers apparently requested that Garfield revert to the first script for the segment featuring 5-year-old cancer survivor Miles 'Batkid' Scott.
He did not immediately respond, but is later said to have agreed. However, the Academy decided to cut the entire segment and replace it with a speech by Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Chris Evans.
Yesterday, Garfield responded to "lying" reports that he had pulled out of the segment.
His rep Rupert Fowler said that "Andrew and Miles were equally upset" by the removal of the segment, and that Garfield joined Batkid and his family at Disneyland on Monday.
