So Blunt's Russian accent would have been awesome with the extra week she had before Scarlett's name came into the frame ?

LOL, I was about to say that. I think fanboys tend to assume you guys across the pond over there can hook up accents just like that, for some reason.

*shakes head*

There are so many better choices than Johannsen. Johannsen's becoming box office poison and almost all of her good work has been with Woody Allen.

I'll see IM-2, but I'm disappointed with Marvel/Favreau's casting decision on this role.

Honestly, is Blunt that much of a better actress than Scarlett? Be honest. From what you've seen, how much more talent has she got?

I like the decision, although Blunt would have been fantastic. Johansson is not only absolutely gorgeous, but she can act too.

Not a big fan of Johansson.

The only thing I ever notice when she's in a film is her chest - because that's pretty much the only pleasurable distraction from her bland face and inane attempts at "acting".

Still, if Ryan Reynolds and Favreau can see something in her, then I remain hopeful. I certainly cannot see Favreau compromising his otherwise excellent cast with one "weak link" simply because of her placement on the latest FMH/Maxim "hottest 100 girls" list.

I hope they avoid any attempts at a Russian accent though. I realise that's probably blasphemous, but I'd much rather Johansson concentrate on her acting and little things like "emoting" with something other than her heaving bosoms, instead of trying (and failing) to do a Russian accent.

Cheers.

I wouldn't say that she's cheap, I just think that the article said that they got her for far less than she was expected to go for.
However if the deal was total garbage then she would have rejected it outright or negotiated more (ala Rourke)

It has been said that most actors outside of the really big names are taking pay cuts due to the recession.

Reasonable. After all do we really need Jessica Alba being payed 10 million dollars to stand on screen with all the presence and emotional range of a piece of wood. Granted it's a fine looking piece of wood but still.

I can see her pulling it off well. She might be more known for her cheesecake image of late. But Romanov is supposed to be part spy, part assassin, part seductress; but with a noble, softer side.

Not so sure about this casting still, but she's pretty so i guess thats something haha.

No seriously she can pull off a good performance now and then so hopefully this will be one of those good perfomances.

Have you seen 'My Summer Of Love'?
Blunt was really good in that.

Meh. Would of liked Blunt but I'll see what Johannson can do with the role. Damn you Fox once again they do over another comic franchise.

I guess this means she'll have to become a redhead now.

So does this mean she'll sign on for some of the other movies they'll be doing with Marvel, or is it just for Iron Man 2 for now?

She can act, I am just skeptical she can do a good Black Widow. Some roles are harder then others. She hasn't given me the impression she could be an impressive ultra-smart fighter from her movies. This role is where they need an actress like Jennifer Garner, which I don't think Johannsen is as talented as. Hopefully I'm wrong about her.
