Yahoo recently posted a new still of Scarlett Johansson as the ravishing Natasha Romanoff aka The Black Widow in the upcoming IRON MAN 2 and yowza, did she ever up the hot for this role.

IRON MAN 2 sees armored playboy billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) clash with fellow weapons manufacturer Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) and Russian sociopath Whiplash (Mickey Rourke), all the while getting into a little love triangle with Romanoff and his ever faithful secretary Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).

Sparks, of the physical and metallic variety, are sure to fly. Click through to check out more pics. Iron Man suits up again on May 7th.

Extra Tidbit: Well, maybe Johansson was as good a choice as Emily Blunt.

Love her cans, not too impressed with her acting, except in Lost in Translation. She will suck in Iron Man. Moving on.

why all the blunt love?

i'm still lost to why so many people are so upset about the loss of blunt? I mean, she is a good actress, but it's like Emily Blunt was absolutely BORN to play the role and NOBODY ELSE COULD EVER DO IT. It's a character in comics that not too many people care about who was going to be portrayed by the chick from "The Devil Wears Prada". Oh, I'm sorry, and "The Jane Austen Book Club".

This isn't like Patrick Stewart as Prof. X being replaced by Morgan Freeman, its a hot chick actress

This isn't like Patrick Stewart as Prof. X being replaced by Morgan Freeman, its a hot chick actress playing an eye-candy role replaced by...hold on...another hot chick (hotter, actually) actress. To be honest, I am a Scarjo fan, but that notwithstanding, can someone PLEASE explain to me why Emily Blunt was, quote, "Perfect" for this role?

Everybody's going gaga over this photo? Her hair is flat and she looks silly. I can already hear her ridiculous "Russian" accent. Looking forward to IM2 but I wish they had snagged Blunt for this role.

I was a little disappointed when Emily Blunt was replaced, just because she seriously seemed *perfect* for the part. However, I've never thought casting Johansson as her repalcement was a bad call, and I'm standing by that.

I like ScarJo as an actress and I never had any doubt she was hot enough to play the part. My problem was, and is, that I think she was miscast. The enthusiasm about Blunt wasn't just a question of hotness.

Still, the stills looks good and I trust Favreau's judgment on this one.

I couldn't help but laugh at TAE K's post.

I think flicks like the first IRON MAN and THE DARK KNIGHT have proven that when you cast GOOD actors in the roles it enhances the film that much more and makes everyone take the story seriously and not throw it away like "Oh, it's just a comic book movie, it doesn't matter". Hiring PROVEN talent is what's made people actually take comic book movies seriously for a change and galvanized people to craft a solid film and not just phone it in to

All that said, I don't find Johansson to be the worst actress around, but Emily Blunt is much better. I'll reserve judgement until I see her performance.

ITS ONLY IRON MAN FOLKS!

she may not be the best actress ever, but she's probably good enough for a role in iron man. its not like they're going for an oscar with this one. i doubt this movie will really require any acting chops. and you can hire someone to teach you an accent.

imagine if they got a "proven actress" for the role, and it ended up being hilary swank. that. would. suck.

The look is almost to par but I won't make a judgment till I hear her voice.

That is what ADR is for.

Look guys separate your cock from your brain. Johansson is a terrible pick. She isn't the best actress in the world and she cannot play a character. Especially not a russian character. She plays every role the same way. And is very distracting. It's like saying keanu reeves would be a good tony stark because women find him attractive. Everyone was smashing this idea until they saw her in black, well guess what because she can wear a fitting costume doesn't mean she can pull off the part.

what proof do you have that she'll play a Russian role poorly?

Scarlett Johansson may not be the best actress of her generation but she is by no means terrible. The girl has been nominated for 4 Golden Globes and won a BAFTA and she's under 25. I might not like some of her films but nobdoy gets that much critical acclaim without having at least some talent.
