Scarlett Johansson is definitely in Iron Man 3

03.27.2012

Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow

I suppose that this is, in a way, a spoiler for THE AVENGERS as it tells us that a particular character will survive the cosmic shenanigans Loki sets into motion during that movie. But the fact of the matter is that a casting sheet for IRON MAN 3 has Johannson's name stamped right on it, meaning that Joss Whedon's heartbreaking habit of suddenly killing off someone just when you really started to root for them will not include Black Widow. This time around, anyway.

"... Scarlett Johansson will return from 'Iron Man 2' playing Natasha Romanoff aka 'The Black Widow,' and Gwyneth Paltrow plays Stark’s closest friend, love interest, and business partner Pepper Potts. Don Cheadle, who replaced Terrence Howard after the first 'Iron Man,' returns as Lt. Colonel James 'Rhodey' Rhodes – Stark’s personal pilot, chief aviation engineer for Stark International, and one of Stark’s closest friends."

Now, if you actually happen to live in the greater Wilmington, North Carolina area I'd strongly recommend heading on over to look at the rest of the casting information right here - there's going to be plenty of work available both for supporting talent and extras, and with production scheduled to run from May 21st through September 7th there's a fair amount of time therein to do some feature film work.

Good luck!

Extra Tidbit: This does raise the question: would Marvel actually be willing to (at least temporarily) kill off a supporting character in their interconnected universe of awesomeness?

God, I hope so. He SHOULD return to have the continuity.

Still one of the biggest missteps of Iron Man 2 was not securing Terrence Howard. A blunder.

As much as I like Don Cheadle and he did a fine job in Iron Man 2, I thought Howard did a fantastic job as Rhodes and had great chemistry with Downey Jr. Was upset to hear that he was not coming back. Same goes for Norton for Incredible Hulk.

He was so much better than Cheadle in the part, more charismatic.

wasnt a question of securing him, since cheadle had been theyre number 1 choice for the first iron man movie. he had scheduling conflicts, so they went with howard. then when they had the chance to get cheadle in iron man 2, they went for it. reallyyyy wish they stayed with howard though too

Always nice to see them respect continuity. Re-casting really degrades the seamless feel of the MCU.

Tidbit: I sure hope not. Not for loss of the character, but for the inevitable "resurrections" that would surely follow. That is one of the most irritating things in comic books.

From a guy who likes Scarlett... and I DO like my Scarlett... she did nothing for me as Black Widow the first time around. It was just a dull, flat performance. Never really bought her as Black Widow. Hopefully the character's written better this time, maybe that'll help.

Glad to see that she will be back, but hopefully she has more stuff to do this time instead of one good action scene like they had her in Iron Man 2. It's not that she's not a great character, it's just that anyone of the Avengers or Loki could kill her in seconds.

She poses no real threat, unless she is fighting someone in hand to hand combat.

What a dull character. In the Avengers trailer when they all have their back to each other and she reloads her pistol, I'm thinking what the fuck is a pistol going to do? What does she bring to the table?

As for killing off characters, I really hope they don't kill Maria Hill. And as for Scarlett being back, I am happy to hear it. Hopefully she won't steal the show from the man himself. Shane Black is directing and can't wait.

Jamie Foxx. That is all

It's kinda odd the detail didn't indicate Rhodes as War Machine. Just "Stark’s personal pilot, chief aviation engineer for Stark International, and one of Stark’s closest friends". Possibly War Machine may have less role than in "Iron Man 2".
