Scarlett’s reps have confirmed to E! Online that she is indeed joining the sequel to Iron Man which the first grossed over $500 million worldwide. The deal was signed this afternoon. The second chapter is scheduled for a May 2010 release. Furthermore, long rumored Mickey Rourke is officially confirmed too. The rest of the cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, and Sam Rockwell.

“Scarlett is thrilled to be a part of Iron Man.” – her rep, Marcel Pariseau

Scarlett will be playing Black Widow. There is a lot of mythology surrounding her character and several variations so we’ll just have to await how the movie’s version will feature her and of course how Scarlett Johansson adapts her. You can learn about Black Widow on Wikipedia.

The details of the plot are highly guarded at this time but it’s known that in the sequel, Mickey Rourke will play Whiplash, a character that includes elements from that comic book villain and Crimson Dynamo, another Russian baddie.

Sam Rockwell will play Justin Hammer, a multibillionaire businessman and a rival of industrialist Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, being played by a returning Robert Downey Jr.

Wow!! Black Widow!! That’s gonna be a big success to Scarlett’s career. I’m looking forward to see the new Iron Man.

It’s should’ve been Emily Blunt’s role. Scarlett is just going to screw this up.

Audiences won’t like it, critics won’t like it, comic purists won’t like it.

It’s just wrong.

I’m not excited for this in any way at all. She really needs to stop taking these money making roles, and focus on becoming a serious actress. (Isn’t that what she’s said she’s always wanted to become?) Just awful, Scarlett.
