Scarlett Johansson For Iron Man?
Could The Lost in Translation star be teaming up with Mickey Rourke?
Scarlett Johansson will take over the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff (aka. Mickey Rourke - as reports claim he has closed his deal to play the Russian villain, Whiplash, in Iron Man 2. Rourke's involvement was unsure when it was revealed he'd rejected an initial offered of $250,000 to play the villain - but after apparently meeting with Director Jon Favreau, the new price is thought to be notably higher.
Marvel have not confirmed Rourke's involvement at present.
In other comic movie news Josh Hartnett has apparently met with Thor director, Kenneth Brannagh, to discuss playing the films villain Loki.
