Reel To Reel: Mickey Rourke & Scarlett Johansson sign on for Iron Man 2
After all the hoopla, the comeback kid aka Mickey Rourke has signed on to play (and here’s where it gets murky, kids) either Crimson Dynamo or Whiplash. What’s being bandied about is Rourke will play Whiplash with some Crimson Dynamo tendencies (for lack of a better word). Why can’t Rourke just play Crimson Dynamo or Whiplash, I don’t know.
Meanwhile, the added bonus to this is that Scarlett Johannsson will play Black Widow. Now, yeah, I know – it was supposed to be Emily Blount. While the details are (again) murky, the person who first tested for the part is now going to play it. Yeah, I know – Johansson is a catch anyway you look at it and definitely has the chops but will she dye the blond locks or at least request a damn good redheaded wig? One can hope it’s in the budget…
Okay, what do you guys think of the news?
