First Very Crappy Photos of Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2

I'm ashamed that I'm even posting these photos, but they are our very first look at Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2. Unfortunately the world just can't wait until Friday (two days!) for the actual issue of Entertainment Weekly to hit newsstands and cleaner scans of the cover and whatever photos may be inside to be posted online. No, we have to desperately post these screenshots of a TV screen where Entertainment Tonight showed early photos of the new EW that contained a cover photo with Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey Jr. all together. That's all I'm going to say - take a look!
You can be certain we'll be reposting these exact same photos once better versions end up online (probably Friday). I love what IESB said about Robert Downey Jr. the most: "Wow, Tony Stark looks more like Tony Montana in this one!" I agree with him on that! I wish we had more, but unfortunately, this is all we've got for now. I wouldn't have posted these if it weren't for the two shots actually looking acceptable shrunk down (like they are above). Scarlett looks pretty sexy as a red head and looks like a badass Black Widow. It looks like that Entertainment Weekly issue is a Comic-Con preview so stay tuned for more from that this week!
