Scarlett Johansson/Black Widow will not be in Iron Man 3 after all

Apr. 25, 2012by:

Despite a report just last month that Scarlett Johansson will be in IRON MAN 3, the actress recently confirmed she will not be in the sequel.

With the addition of Ben Kingsley as a potential villain and Jessica Chastain, IRON MAN 3 is shaping up to be as big as the first two films. But, with other projects on her plate, Scarlett seems content to focus on Black Widow in the inevitable AVENGERS sequel or possibly a spin-off featuring Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye.

"Do I want to spend another three months shedding the manatee skin and squeezing back into that suit?" she laughed. "Not necessarily, but it's all worth it in the end."

Word has it that THE AVENGERS lays the groundwork for individual film follow ups for each of the superheroes. It remains to be seen if the fleshed-out (pun intended) Black Widow character is worthy of supporting her own action film.

Extra Tidbit: With Scarlett out, which IRON MAN 3 hottie would you pick: Gwyneth or Jessica? You decide, because I can't!

If it'd be Gwyneth as Pepper Potts, then she's my pick. But if it's just as themselves, Jessica.

Black Widow might be in IM3

Just because ScarJo wont be in Iron Man 3, doesn't mean they can't get someone else to takeover.

Remember what they did with War-Machine?

Well, how about we give Cobie Smulders a chance to play the hottie this time around?

hmm

They should do an "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." film focusing on both Black Widow and Hawkeye?

I do like the direction that Iron Man 3 is headed & seems to be a stand alone Iron Man film. Lets hope they do the same for the Thor & Captain America sequels. We all know by now they are part of The Avengers so give these heroes there own respective movies now.

It makes sense. I think she's great as Black Widow and I'd love to see her in her own movie. However, she needs to build up that role in Marvel's upcoming slate of flicks.

This will put more focus on other characters. Black Widow already has been established, and will appear later. I'm good with this.

Lots of Iron Man casting news lately, all of it good. Still waiting to find out if Faverau will return for his role, since he's not directing.

Fantastic, that way IRON MAN 3 can actually be about just Iron Man and not AVENGERS.

I think so but I don't think they specified which movie she'd appear in. They probably want to wait to see if having her own franchise would be successful before they use her.

This is smart. It makes Black Widow's role in Iron Man 2 a legit precursor to the Avengers, and not the intro of an Iron Man supporting character a la War Machine.

Since compared to other Joss Whedon works The Avengers has a dearth of females, you just know Black Widow will be getting a very big role and will be established as a major hero in her own right.
