Is Scarlett Johansson Going to Play Black Widow in "Iron Man 2?" 


As we reported back in January, Emily Blunt was offered the role of the mysterious Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow for "Iron Man 2."

But, Blunt's commitment to "Gulliver's Travels" may prevent her from co-starring in the Marvel sequel.

Now, Entertainment Weekly is exclusively reporting that Johansson has met with the filmmakers and is interested in taking the role.

Here's the full article, and fanboys, start fantasizing!

Because Emily Blunt's commitment to Twentieth Century Fox and the studio's upcoming Gulliver's Travels movie may prohibit her from costarring in Iron Man 2, Marvel is in discussions with other actresses, most significantly Scarlett Johansson, to take her place, EW has learned exclusively. Marvel will not confirm, but sources around Hollywood say Johansson has indeed met with the filmmakers and is interested in taking the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow. Blunt's reps are still trying to make both projects work, but Gulliver's is further along, with a start date of April 15. Iron Man 2 still doesn't have a shooting script and a start date has not yet been determined.

"Equus" Closed -- Sorry "Twilight" Fans, You Won't See Robert Pattinson Naked! 


Amidst nudity and much horsing around, "Equus" finished its Broadway run. But that didn't stop Robert Pattinson ("Twilight") fans from dreaming that their heartthrob is going to be on the show that prominently starred "Harry Potter's" Daniel Radcliffe.

After all, both actors appeared in two "Harry Potter" films.



But "Equus" producer, David Pugh said, that will not happen!

But he did admit that he will be working together with Pattinson on a theater project in 2010!

Rejoice Pattinson fans! You'll see the actor in the flesh! Yes, that's a double entendre :tongue
