General Motors has established another movie tie-up, and this one doesn't involve explosions and robots - it involves explosions and superheroes. That's right, Chevrolet is providing a car for a character in the upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In the flick, which hits theaters on April 4, SHIELD agent Natasha Romanov, also known as Black Widow, will be tooling about town in a black-on-black Corvette Stingray (shown above with Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson at the wheel). It's unclear if Black Widow has had her car modified at all, like some other SHIELD cars – it's tough to tell from the one image we have up top. Still, we feel confident that Johansson's character and her akimbo pistols will add all the extra excitement the C7 could possibly need.

We'll be on hand at the Chicago Auto Show for the debut of Black Widow's Corvette Stingray, and will be sure to bring you pictures of it when things kick off at McCormick Place.

Black Widow's Stingray Among 15 Chevrolets in Chicago
Brand partners with Marvel Studios for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

CHICAGO – So if the Black Widow had a sports car, what would it be?

You don't have to wait until the April 4 premiere of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" to find out. Visitors to the Chicago Auto Show will see the world premiere of the black-on-black Corvette Stingray driven by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Black Widow in the sequel to Captain America.

They should not expect to see the Black Widow, but Chevrolet will distribute a limited-edition Captain America comic book to celebrate its team up with Marvel Entertainment, LLC.

The Black Widow's Stingray is one of 15 Chevrolet cars and trucks displayed for the first time at the Chicago show – at least one example from each segment showcasing the depth of Chevrolet's current portfolio.

Chevrolet continues its commitment to business customers with the all-new City Express, the production version of which debuts in Chicago. The small-and-efficient cargo van goes on sale this fall with a focus on the versatility, maneuverability and performance that businesses need.

Performance fans will have a good selection of cars to gaze upon, with the Stingray convertible and two Stingray coupes being seen for the first time in the Windy City. Accompanying them will be the Corvette Z06 and C7.R, fresh off their debuts at the North American International Auto Show in January. Fans of the 2+2 layout will be able to see a Z/28 for the first time in Chicago, while the SS sedan will be on hand for those that want four doors with their muscle.

Chevrolet's three pickup truck strategy is on display with the Colorado Extended Cab midsize joining a Silverado 1500 High Country, a Silverado 3500 HD, and a Silverado 2500 HD. SUVs are represented by the all-new Suburban and Tahoe, both in LTZ form.

At the other end of the size spectrum, the Sonic RS in the new Blue Topaz color carries Chevy's small car banner.

About Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy-the Winter Soldier.

Jackson as Nick Fury.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Alan Fine and Stan Lee. The film releases April 4, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

      I hope this means that the Acura product placement deal is done. That was a stupid idea in the first place.

      "Lost in Translation" = best opening scene ever Every movie she's in should open that way.

      Her head makes the car look really big.

      Finally, smart GM product placement. Transformers does nothing for the brand. And thank god they gave her the Corvette.

        I dunno. I'd say the long gestation probably made the Transformers probably made the best use of the Camaro placement. Granted, I really don't think it was longer that much longer than the LFA or GT-R, but GM had to keep it visible. Transformers probably did that for them in a big way. As for every other car/bot...meh. Forgettable at best.

          There was nothing wrong with how they portrayed the car in the movies, I just think that all of the transformer movies, other than the first, weren't very good. Placing your product so prominently in a bad movie can hurt its image.

        Normally, I would agree with that. Tired of seeing Camaros everywhere BUT...the new black Camaro being used on Hawaii-Five-O is SO HOT, it's managed to convert me. I'm afraid I'm starting to lust after a Camaro!! EGADS!!

          I love the Camaro too. I'm just glad it's something from their performance line. That said, the lightweight, slender, and heavy-hitting nature of the Corvette match Black Widow better.

      At shameless risk of being completely crude... I'd do 'em both. Yes I would.

      Love the Corvette but a little sick and tired of seeing them plastered everywhere in every movie. I can't be the only one, can I?

      Transformers ruined the Camaro for me. Every time I see one, especially yellow, I think of Bumblebee.

        For me, it ruined it in the form of overexposure before it even launched. Camaro here- Camaro there- Camaro every-freakin' where!

      I'd like to buy the seat when she's done sitting in it... for... educational purposes, of course.
