Needless to say, we were planning to watch Iron Man 2 no matter what.
But now that we're glimpsed Scarlett Johansson in the role of Natasha Romanoff/the Black Widow? We may have to line up for a ticket to this blockbuster's opening night showing.
Joining Johansson for the sequel, as well as on the Entertainment Weekly cover below, is Mickey Rourke in the role of Whiplash.
Iron Man 2 opens on May 7, 2010.
Not pictured, but returning to the franchise, are: Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts; and Don Cheadle (replacing Terrence Howard) as Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes.
