Iron Man 2 News and Videos with Scarlett Johansson and Jon Favreau

We’ve got a mishmash of Iron Man 2 movie news today, including video of Scarlett Johansson in the IRON MAN ARMOR?!

First up, we’ve got a video from MTV News of director Jon Favreau, who talks about how the Tony Stark/Pepper Potts relationship will be still be the central relationship in Iron Man 2:

Scarlett Johansson as... IRON MAN?!

Some highlights:

"I think the central relationship is still those two characters. It’s still Pepper and Tony."

"We introduce Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and she has a dual identity, so that ends up affecting both the superhero side of things and the personal side of things—as I think all good superhero plotlines do."

"Then we have Don Cheadle. We’ve upped Rhodey’s significance in the film and now I think the cat’s out of the bag about War Machine, so he’s in that suit.How does he become War Machine? What’s his relationship to Iron Man?"

"We also have Mickey Rourke and we have Sam Rockwell, two of the best actors of our time. We really have an embarrassment of riches."

"Now it’s up to me as a director to make it all come together, and to also have a light enough touch so that people who just want to go see a fun summer movie will go.I think ‘Iron Man’ delivered on that. My kids who don’t really know the comics and are young were able to go and enjoy the first one and I want to make sure [‘Iron Man 2′] is a movie that won’t insult grown-ups’ intelligence but will also be appropriate for kids."

Next up, we’ve got some video from a French website that happens to show several scenes from the movie, including what appears to be shots of Scarlett Johansson, who plays the role of Russian super-spy Black Widow in the film, wearing Tony Stark’s armor:

Johansson was also recently quoted as saying, in regards to the critically acclaimed first Iron Man movie:

"Hopefully, I won’t be crucified for saying this, but I think the second one is even better."

If you do want to crucify her, hopefully image of her in the Black Widow costume can inspire some… forgiveness:
