ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COVERS IRON MAN 2
Iron Man 2 graces the cover of Entertainment Weekly's second annual Comic-Con preview issue and features Scarlett Johansson as Russian spy, Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow. The article gives the lowdown on Mickey Rourke's character, a Russian criminal named Vanko, aka Whiplash, who creates his own battle armor while serving time in a Soviet prison. His suit "shoots devastating, whip-like beams." We also learn that Natasha Romanoff is Tony Stark's assistant and possible love interest, making former assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) jealous. Pepper Potts is now the CEO of Stark Industries. Iron Man 2 flies into theaters May 7, 2010.
