Feast your eyes on Scarlett Johansson in Entertainment Weekly’s July 17th Comic-Con preview issue. Entertainment Weekly’s second annual Comic-Con preview issue features ‘Iron Man 2’ on the cover. Iron Man will battle new villain Mickey Rourke, size up Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. View the new EW ‘Iron Man 2’ cover and Black Widow photo below.
‘Iron Man 2’ introduces two very different foes. On one side is Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), a fast-talking weapons manufacturer who fancies himself the next Tony Stark; on the other, Vanko, who, while incarcerated in a Russian prison, creates his own battle-suit, which shoots devastating, whip-like beams. Hammer and Whiplash join forces to take down Downey’s character, Tony Stark. Scarlett Johansson joins the cast as Stark’s mysterious new assistant, Natasha, who has an alter ego of her own, Black Widow. That introduction inevitably sparks romantic tension between Stark and former assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who’s been promoted to CEO of Stark Industries.
