A member of the Facebook group Marvel Movies! has provided the internet world with our very first look at Scarlett Johansson in costume as Black Widow in Iron Man 2.

Update: We now some quality images of Johansson and Entertainment Weekly‘s Iron Man 2 cover!

Check them out after the jump:


Oh yeah, definitely liking her... performance.



For a better look at the EW cover and Black Widow pic, go here.

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff is an intelligence operative and in the comics, she first meets Iron Man when she was ordered to take out the creator of the Soviet Crimson Dynamo armor. Perhaps that storyline is worked into the sequel with Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash suit. My guess is that Rourke will have the full armor later in the movie and maybe that’ll be called Crimson Dynamo.

When Scarlett was announced as Black Widow, there was some concern from fans about her selection. Some thought she wasn’t fit for the role, but those concerns started to vanish later when updates about her workout regiment came out online along with some photos of her sporting the red hair.

If these latest images of Johansson are any indication, I think fans will be happy.

The image of Mickey Rourke as Whiplash isn’t new though, as Screen Rant posted that up in early June. As for the ones of Robert Downey Jr., we’ve not seen before though and he’s looking good in costume as always.

With Iron Man 2 having a major presence at next weeks Comic-Con, we’ll no doubt get some much better official images of her sporting the red hair and black leather suit very soon. In my opinion, she actually looks pretty good.

What do you think of Black Widow from this little tease?

Iron Man 2 opens next summer, May 7, 2010.
