Scarlett Johansson is the Black Widow
 
Quote:

I've already posted my scoop that Mickey Rourke will play the Russian villain in Iron Man 2 in a deal that started out lowball and went up a lot. Now I'm told that Emily Blunt won't be in the sequel and Black Widow will now be played by Scarlett Johannson. Interesting because Scarlett actually screen-tested for the role and didn't get it. But I hear that, unlike Mickey's quote, the deal for her is "just the opposite, a terrible deal made by CAA," one of my insiders says. "It's as bad as any deal that I've heard. It's lowball money. And it ties her to countless movies, including that ensemble The Avengers, which is what makes this brutal for a lot of actors." As for Blunt, I'm told she fell out not by choice but only because Fox exercised an option that the studio had from The Devil Wears Prada to make her do the upcoming film starring Jack Black, Gullivers Travels.

NO! Blunt was perfect! PERFECT, I say! Johannson is just a nice rack.

s**t. and I really wanted to see this one..

I actually am for this. I want to see what she can do with this role. She's always had this "indie hipster" mindset about her, and how she's an old soul, I want to see her put all that energy into this character.

While I would have preferred Blunt, Johannson might surprise. I've never been too impressed with her acting chops, but the times I've really enjoyed her was when she was playing similar roles. So I guess we'll see.

This and the Rourke news really have peaked my interest in IM2, she is a fine young actress IMO and this is a fresh type of role for her. :up:

at first I didn't think she was right for this role but after much thought, I have faith in Favreau. I don't think he would cast somebody unless he really thought they would be good and with him behind the wheel I know this movie is going to be just as awesome as the last one, if not more.

Eh.

I just hope I don't hear Favreau say that he always envisioned Scarlett as BW from the beginning. :o:woot:

Johannson isn't the right choice imo. Hopefully she'll prove me wrong!

I want to be wrong.

I hope her Russian accent doesn't sound lame.

It probably will

Re: Scarlett Johansson is the Black Widow
 
Great... so it is confirmed... and yeah the accent will be about as bad as you can get... no way she will even come close to perfecting it with three months to go... commercial hire for sure. And interesting about this report... a "terrible deal that includes mutliple pictures"??? We heard about the nine pictures but I am curious as to why else this was a terrible deal? I mean she only has to be in one Avengers movie really... maybe two tops. I wonder what else Marvel has in store for the character down the line.

I agree with this. If Favreau sees something in her that we don't, then I'm willing to keep an open mind.

Though Blunt would've been a lot better. But leave it to Fox to screw up a good thing.
