The new mum will get back into the black leather catsuit to reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, while new dad Robert will appear as his Marvel superhero alter-ego Tony Stark/Iron Man in the third instalment of the Marvel movies, titled Captain America: Civil War.

Anthony Russo, who will return to direct the sequel with his brother Joe, said at an event in China: " We're very happy how it's coming along.

"Captain America 3 is gonna be called Captain America: Civil War and it's going to star Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson will be back, Winter Soldier [Sebastian Stan] will be back, and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film."

Joe also teased that two superheroes will face each other in the third film, saying: "The new element in this film is that Captain America and Iron Man get into a fight with each other."

Captain America: Civil War will star Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Anthony Mackie as his friend Sam Wilson/Falcon and Samuel L Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D leader Nick Fury, alongside newcomers Daniel Bruhl and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. It is scheduled to be released in May 2016.

Meanwhile, Captain America 3 writer Stephen McFeely revealed he's very excited about Chadwick playing Black Panther.

"I'll keep that one close to the vest but I'm very gratified that they went with Chadwick and that he said yes because he's a good get," Stephen teased at the TCA (Television Critics Association) panel.
