Iron Man 2, Black Widow Origin Story, and Sweet Scarlett Johansson

MTV tells us that Marvel is going to launch a 4 issue origin story for Black Widow to tie in with the new Iron Man 2 movie. I might actually buy a comic book for the first time in, like, ten years.

Apparently there was a lot of great Iron Man 2 footage at Comi-Con, including Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow kicking all sorts of butt, but not sign of said footage on the Internetz Tubez as of yet. Lemme know if you find something.

Yes, I do say that Scarlett Johansson will be great as the Black Widow. I know lots of fanboys are outraged that it’s Scarlett Johansson instead of Emily Blunt, but Favreau knows what he’s doing (see casting Robert Downey as Tony Stark) and Scarlett will make an awesome Widow. Guaranteed.
With War Machine, Whiplash, Black Widow and Nick Fury, it sounds like this movie is going to be loaded to the gills with sweet superhero action. Yay! Now, if they’d just get some video on the Internetz Tubing.

I’m looking much forward to this (Ironman 2) and Tron 2 the very most of anything right now. More stuff on Tron 2 from here. Well, I’m also looking forward to The Hobbit, but nothing on that thus far. Probably will be a lot on it at Comi-Con next year. So, cool.

One more picture of Scarlett as The Black Widow. Yeah, it’s been everywhere, but I’m trying to be inclusive.

Too bad for Emily Blunt. But I’m sure she’ll do well enough for herself.
