How Old Was Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2?
Scarlett Johansson was 24 when she played “Natalie Rushman/Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow” in “Iron Man 2.” In 2010, that happened more than 13 years ago. She is 38 years old now and has been in 89 movies, 47 of which came out after Iron Man 2.
The part of Natasha Romanoff will be played by Scarlett Johansson. A spy for S.H.I.E.L.D. who was pretending to be Stark’s new assistant. Before she got the part, Johansson dyed her hair red in the hopes that it would help Favreau see that she was right for the part.
Johansson said this about why she chose the part: “The Black Widow character spoke to me because she’s a superhero but also a person. She’s little but strong… She is dark, and she has died so many times that she has a deep understanding of what life is worth. You can’t help but like her.”
She said that when she first saw the catsuit, she had “a bit of a freak-out moment.” She worked closely with the stunt team to learn how to fight in it so that she could “sell it.”
During promotion for Black Widow (2021), Johansson said that the character was overly sexualized in Iron Man 2, referring to lines that said she was “a piece of something, like a possession,” but at the time she thought this was “like a compliment.”
