Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) recently verbalized their excitement, to match ours, in what is seemingly the first we’ve heard from both actors about reprising their Marvel roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Johansson was promoting her recent foray into Broadway for Cat On a Hot Tin Roof (in which she plays Maggie the Cat), when she spoke openly about the Marvel sequel with CBS Sunday Morning:

So it’s beyond speculation now that S.H.I.E.L.D. plays a role in Cap 2, with Scarjo confirming it. Good, I was hoping that was the case. Meanwhile, Stan has been talking to Broadway.com about his expanded role in the superhero sequel, saying:
I’m completely excited to venture down that path. This is why January 1, 2013, was a glorious day to wake up to [laughs]. I’m very grateful and very lucky for what’s going on right now. I think you have to allow yourself to be excited about the magnitude of something like [Captain America].
It’s awesome to finally hear from Sebastian Stan about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I hope they give him a mask and he’d better have that cybernetic arm. Give him some black military gear, too.
I loved The First Avenger. I thought it was a great movie. But this is shaping up to blow that out of the water. Cap, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Falcon, and Crossbones? It seems like a lot, but really, in the first Cap, he lead a whole platoon of guys. So I think this cast will fit together nicely. I guess no Hawkeye though. And I know you have Winter Soldier and Crossbones in bad guy roles, but I wonder who the heavy will be. Who’s gonna be pulling the strings?
