Scarlett Johansson Confirms Black Widow NOT In IRON MAN 3
The Avengers Scarlett Johansson verifies that she will not be making an appearance in Shane Black's Iron Man 3, despite her name appearing on casting calls.
The actress told us she would not be appearing in Iron Man 3 at the start of our interview with her and The Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo, at The Avengers Los Angeles press event last week. Johansson did, however, pitch the idea of a Jason Bourne-esque super hero movie featuring the Black Widow character. - screenrant.com
The actress made her first appearance in the Marvel universe with Iron Man 2. Rumors and early Iron Man 3 casting calls, had most assuming she would make a return to the franchise. But, now it looks like Shane Black is staying true to his word, and is making the film much more Iron Man/Tony Stark-centric than the last. The second film was criticized for straying too far from it's leading man by focusing large portions of screen time on S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers Initiative.
Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!
