Scarlett Johansson has ditched her traditional catsuit for the upcoming 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

Scarlett Johansson has ditched her catsuit for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.

The 29-year-old actress will reprise her role as the Black Widow from 'The Avengers' to join forces with the Captain, however she'll appear slightly different from her original character with a sleek new hairdo, brown leather jacket and a pair of knee high brown boots replacing her blonde curls and catsuit.

She confessed: "I don't spend a lot of time in my catsuit in this one."

The 'Lost in Translation' star also spoke about the connection between her character and the Captain - who is played by Chris Evans - and says they grow much closer together as they struggle to realise they have to trust each other if they want to survive.

She added to Total Film magazine: "Everything is not as it seems. It's not so black and white, it's not so cut and dry, it's not good versus evil. The stakes are much higher. It brings them closer together because they find themselves in a vulnerable situation and they're in it together."

Scarlett's co-star Chris agreed with her and admitted that trust is definitely an issue for the two characters as their lives revolve around secrecy.

He said: "I think Black Widow's whole arc is coming to terms with her history - that she's been a spy, and spies aren't necessarily trustworthy. That's kind of Cap's struggle as well. He works for an agency that deals in secrets, and trust is a big issue."
