I wonder if the Roxxon corporation will be involved. It's been shown in the MCU, and it does play a minor tangential role in the WS comic (Lukin uses a CC to buy it).
Winter Soldier will likely be controlled by the same people Black Widow was controlled by.

Natasha Romanoff - "Are you boys really that naive? S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors potential threats."

Bruce Banner - "Captain America is on threat watch?"

Natasha Romanoff - "We all are."
