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!

well even though the photos are crappy they look fantastic! Downey jr. looks great as usual. Scarlet Johanson/Reynolds looks bad ass and Rourke looks for lack of a better word awesome! Bring on IRONMAN 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scarlett is the hottest woman on the planet, and I am fully looking forward to this flick if only for her. Also Downey Jr., I guess. 😛

#9, its better than the orginal Whiplash costume in the comics... Some serious S&M type stuff going on there... The kind of super villian look that could only be taken serious in the 80s... Gotta love the orginal shit! All in all, this is looking fracking rad.

Am I the only one who thinks Rourke's character looks terrible?

Is it just me or does Scarlett look a little like Reese Witherspoon in these photos? It's probably the bad quality...

I just realised, isnt Iron Man 2 looking more and more like SpiderMan 3 in that there are too many villians, Scarlett Johannson, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke, isnt that a little too much. Thats what destroyed SpiderMan 3, I think it might do the same here

19: Not really. SM3 floundered because each villain was trying to be the main villain. That is not the case here. Rourke will be the main villain (Whiplash) while Rockwell will be a supporting character and Johannson will be a grey-area character (not quite a hero but not entirely evil either). Don't forget that TDK had multiple villains, but it worked because they weren't all vying to be the main baddie.

She almost looks like Kat Dennings! Seriously, go and look at a Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlsit poster and tell me they don't look alike!
