***Update: Second Photo of Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow Just Posted***
Entertainment Weekly decided to put some of the cast of the new Iron Man on the cover due to next week’s Comic-Con. This is the we get a small peek at Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. Sadly, we only get to see part of her outfit, but so far, she’s looking pretty bad-ass. Check out the entire cover below…
More images will be shown at Comic-Con, not just from Iron Man, but a tons of others.
The magazine also gave some info about the plot:
“Iron Man 2 will feature two very different foes for Stark. On one side is Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), a fast-talking weapons manufacturer who fancies himself the next Tony Stark; on the other, Vanko, who, while incarcerated in a Russian prison, creates his own battle-suit, which shoots devastating, whip-like beams. Hammer and Whiplash join forces to take down Downey’s character, Tony Stark.
Scarlett Johansson is Stark’s mysterious new assistant, Natasha, who has an alter ego of her own, Black Widow. That introduction inevitably sparks romantic tension between Stark and former assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who’s been promoted to CEO of Stark Industries. “The men want it to be, like, ‘Ooh, the girls are fighting over Tony,’ but it’s not as standard as that,” says Paltrow. “There’s a weird male catfight fantasy. Downey agrees. He believes what differentiates the franchise from other superhero series can be summarized as follows: “We’re horny. Not, like, can’t-bring-your-kids horny, but just…horny.”
Male cat-fight fantasy? I wonder what that looks like. As for Johansson, she looks pretty covered up in the cover picture above, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing more soon!
What do you think of the Black Widow?
