First look at Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow July 16th, 2009

We’ve seen Tony Stark and Whiplash in Iron Man 2, now’s our first look at the next major new char­ac­ter, the Black Widow (also known as the Russ­ian spy Natasha Romanoff), played by Scar­lett Johans­son. These shots come cour­te­ous of EW and Leroy.

Plot details

The arti­cle also offers up some very inter­est­ing plot details.

As we already know, Sam Rock­well is play­ing the weapons man­u­fac­turer Justin Ham­mer, “who fan­cies him­self the next Tony Stark”. Rourke plays the new vil­lain Whiplash, aka Russ­ian crim­i­nal Vanko — Vanko cre­ates his first suit whilst impris­oned, his final suit fires “dev­as­tat­ing, whip-like beams.”

Whiplash and Ham­mer join forces to take on Iron Man. Mean­while Natasha Romanoff is hired as Stark’s assis­tant (to replace Pep­per Potts, now CEO of Stark Indus­tries). This ulti­mately leads to roman­tic tensions.

Rourke also reveals that his char­ac­ter enjoys talk­ing to a cock­a­too whilst drunk.
