Nothing sells an action flick quite like a sexy woman in a tight superhero outfit!
And no one knows that better than Scarlett Johansson, who had to wear a skin-hugging bodysuit for "Iron Man 2"
"I don't think I've ever worn anything like it before. I mean, it's a unitard ... a sexy unitard,"
Even "iron man" himself could barely handle the sexy vixen's wardrobe.
"I saw the costume when we were doing wardrobe tests, and I was just like, 'Oh My God, this is just not fair,'" said Robert Downey Jr.
This can only boost ticket sales when the sequel hits theaters on May 7th. "Scarlett has this fantastic following anyway, but I think Black Widow's gonna bring, like, tongues hanging, drooling toward her," said co-star Samuel L. Jackson. "Plus, she's kicking so much ass."
Johansson trained for months to be able to do her own stunts and "really sell it" as she said.
"Scarlett was just a dream, she's so game," Downey says. "She really got in shape and learned how to fight."
Director jon favreau says that the 25-year-old had to learn several different fighting styles.
"The biggest one was Lucha Libre, a Mexican Wrestling style of fighting," he said. "It's comical, but when you see a woman doing it in the Black Widow costume and it's not a guy in a sequined cape, it has a much different effect."
