Could a romance be brewing between Captain America and the Black Widow in the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier?"

According to the Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson, the two characters will develop an "intimate" rapport in the sequel film.

"Their working relationship becomes a more intimate friendship," the actress said during the film's panel at Comic-Con. "They have some unexpected similarities - they both have their guard up, they have trust issues, and they've also both been working for 'the man' for their entire career...Through this unexpected friendship that forms, they both start to question what they want."

In the "Captain America" movie, the character has a brief romantic fling with Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter. However, in the climactic scene, the character winds up frozen for decades, ultimately losing her to time.

While the original took place during the 1940s, the sequel will be set in a modern era where morality becomes a more dubious proposition.

"The first Captain America film is about being given the opportunity to serve," said Chris Evans, who portrays the superhero. "This movie's more about what happens once you're given the opportunity to serve, the ability to give yourself up to that, and the question becomes 'What's right?'"

He added, "In the '40s, it's easy to say 'Nazis are bad'. Today it's a little bit harder to know, who am I serving? It's not about just doing the right thing, now it's about 'what is the right thing?'"

The film is slated for an April 4, 2014 release date.
