Some more Ironman 2 gossip from DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com:

I’ve already posted my scoop that Mickey Rourke will play the Russian villain in Iron Man 2 in a Marvel Studios deal that started out lowball and went up a lot. Now I’m told that Emily Blunt won’t be in the sequel and Black Widow will now be played by Scarlett Johannson. (Interesting because Scarlett actually screen-tested for the role and didn’t get it.) But I hear that, unlike Mickey’s money, the deal for her is “just the opposite, a terrible deal made by CAA,” one of my insiders says. “It’s as bad as any deal that I’ve heard. It’s lowball money. And it ties her to countless movies, including that ensemble The Avengers, which is what makes this brutal for a lot of actors.” As for Blunt, I’m told she fell out not by choice but only because Fox exercised an option that the studio had from The Devil Wears Prada to make her do the upcoming film starring Jack Black, Gullivers Travels.

    THIS IS HUGE! IF the rumors are true that Scarlett is going to play in the Iron Man sequel, then this will be a huge bump in Scarlett’s career! The first Iron Man (as memory serves) was the #2 box office grosser of 2008. Thus the second one will have a built in audience and you can include me among them.

    A Huge money maker with Scarlett in one of the big roles would be a huge boost to her professionally and land her bigger and better paying roles. :wink:

    Mrs. Johansson may not be making as much money as she could in this pic, but she knows the business and realizes that Iron Man II would pay her in many ways down the road. :heart:

    I agree with everything Phil has said. Iron Man II is gonna be massive. I think Scarlett will really profit from this.
