It’s fairly safe to say that Iron Man 2 is one of the more anticipated superhero releases next year, with the panel at Comic-Con next week sure to draw thousands in. It’s not just because of the success of the first either – some interesting choices have led to Mickey Rourke taking on the role of Whiplash, and Scarlett Johansson as the fiery Black Widow.
Entertainment Weekly have managed to score the first images of Johansson in-costume, which they’ve used as their cover along with Robert Downey Jr and Rourke. The images are below.
Iron Man 2 is directed by Jon Favreau, and will be released in 2010.
