Just what the title says.. ScarJo replaces Emily Blunt as the Black Widow and Mickey Rourke will play a still unknown Russian villain.
This marks Scarlett Johansson’s THIRD comic book movie turn, following GHOST WORLD and THE SPIRIT. She’s a tiny bit better than Blunt for Natasha–although her turn in THE SPIRIT did not inspire confidence, we will not hold it against her– but still a youngish ingenue where an experienced woman should be cast. In our fangirl opinion, of course.
But you betcha she will fill out that spandex just right! Nothing wrong with that.
Rourke, of course, is perfect casting for whatever he wants to do. We hear the ending features him flying off a rope at Tony Stark.
