Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow for Iron Man 2?
Man, this is getting vicious. First, Emily Blunt was announced as being cast as super-spy Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, in Iron Man 2. Then Eliza Dushku announced that she was interested in the part. Now we’re hearing rumors that Scarlett Johansson is in discussions for the role, according to Entertainment Weekly by way of Cynopsis, because Blunt has a commitment to Fox for its feature Gulliver’s Travels, which would conflict with shooting.
All this, after replacing Terence Howard from the first film with Don Cheadle. I mean, sheesh.
At least it’s nice to hear that husband Ryan Reynolds is letting her read his comic book collection. Reynolds will be playing Deadpool in this May’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
