Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow
Although we still don’t know whether or not Scarlett Johansson attempts and/or succeeds in pulling off a Russian accent as Natasha Romanoff (aka, the Black Widow) in Iron Man 2, we do know that she’ll be laying down the pain on her enemies.
In speaking with UK magazine SFX, she had th the following to say about what the best aspect of her character is:
“Kicking lots of ass. I wanted to give it everything I had.”
“I hate to see a movie where you don’t buy that a character is gonna beat the living s**t out of you. [Laughs] Believing that about yourself is almost as much work as looking like you could beat the s**t out of somebody.”
That’s cool, but do you speak Russian like co-star Mickey Rourke does for his Whiplash character? We’ll have to wait and see.

Fing Fang Foom in Iron Man 2
Fing Fang Foom, the giant dragon-like monster of the Marvel Universe will likely be seen in Iron Man 2. If you know anything about this character, that statement may blow your mind but don’t fret, it’s just an Easter egg.
According to Iron Man 2’s lead concept artist, Adi Granov, he was tasked with designing Fin Fang Foom for a little appearance.
“This was my design for Fin Fang Foom for the Iron Man Viva Las Vegas book I was doing with Jon Favreau. But this image in particular was done for the IM movie and used as a billboard in one of the scenes where Iron Man flies past it. It’s very quick, but Jon wanted to have a kind of a cool Easter egg in there.”
Keep a close eye out for this in the film.
