Check out this new featurette from Civil War and listen in on what the leading ladies have to say about their roles in the movie:

Scarlett Johansson — Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow

Johansson's been developing her character of Black Widow over four successive films: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), The Avengers (2012), and Iron Man 2 (2010). Civil War should show the culmination of that hard work in what will undoubtedly be another badass performance. The 31-year-old actress says:

"In this film, what's exciting is the stakes become higher and higher. Natasha is a bit torn between either side. With Cap they have a relationship where she wants to reason with him, but she sees Tony as the path of least resistance."

Talking about the group dynamic in a film with so many supers, Johansson reports:

"There's been a few moments where you kind of look around and go, 'Oh alright, I'm in good company.'"

Emily VanCamp — Sharon Carter/Agent 13

Emily VanCamp is reprising her role as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, following Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). She explains why she's happy to be part of the team:

"I'm really glad to be a part of it. Sharon Carter, she's a little sassier. I get to do a little bit of fighting in this. It's awesome."

Elizabeth Olsen — Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch

This will be Olsen's third appearance as Wanda Maximoff, including The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). It sounds like she's been enjoying getting to develop her character even more:

"What I like about Wanda is the idea of her being terrified of her own abilities. It's really fun to play with."

'Captain America: Civil War' will premiere on May 6. Check out the trailer again below.
