Rumors have been circulating forever about whether or not Mickey Rourke would indeed join RDj and Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2. It was reported that he was offered a "measly" $250K to stat as villain Whiplash and then declined. But no, Wrestler fans! Rourke has closed the deal and will indeed continue to ride his comeback train. No reports have indicated how much money actually exchanged hands.
Rumor No. 2 is also true! After Emily Blunt dropped out of Iron Man 2 because of scheduling conflicts with Gulliver's Travels, the internet went atwitter with who would black the Russian Femme Fatale, Black Widow. Everyone seemed to agree that, hey, Scarlett Johansson is sexy, and yup she could be a femme fatale! Well, MoviePressers, the rumors became fact as Johansson signed up officially this week.
Iron Man 2 is due in theaters May 7, 2010.
And I thought it was only fitting to include a sexy photo of Miss Scarlett, as I've had some complaints from the fellas that I only post sexy shirtless photos of hot dudes. You're most welcome.
