    Nice. Kinda blurry though.

  • UrbanCowboy

    I want a suit like that.

  • sandra

    i don’t like scarlett

  • Willa

    Gwyneth will not be pleased to be left out of the cover.
    I’m sure she’s going on another juice-fast to protest this.

    Also, Don Cheadle sucks. Too bad Terrence Howard’s ego is killing his career.

  • Laura

    I can’t quite picture Scarlett as the Black Widow

  • deraj tsuj

    man i must had too much to drink everything is blurry

  • Meepzy


    Hate Scarlett though.

  • rodrigo

  • http://justjared jasmine

  • william

    HI HERE!!!! Tell you a secret. All of us know Michael Jackson has passed away. BUT Someone saw Michael Jackson’s wife on *******Cougar**********She was dating with other rich men….Go there NOW and maybe you can meet her on that site!

  • ann

    I am abosolutely tired about Scarlett, she acts like a diva, and please, she is ridiculous, ok she is a pretty girl, about all with the photoshop, but she isn´t a good actress, I don´t understant how Ryan Reynolds married her, she is patetic, and I am sure that in a few years , she will left Ryan and she is going to hurt him, and he, he is adorable. I prefer Alaniss, or other woman, but not this egocentric and stupid girl.

  • jorja

    the first part was excellent!
    i wish the same thing for the second one

  • Jazz

    Yes! I’m happy for anything Iron Man related! Not a fan of Scarlett though.

  • fresh

    yeah, im so sure on Scarlett as Black Widow either. But I guess we’ll see.

  • Paddisonluvr

    Iron Man was amazing and I cannot wait for next May!! Have to get this issue! I hope Scarlett does a good job – I can’t wait to see more of RDJ and Gwyneth. Thanks JJ!

  • jen

    Can’t stand any of these jokers. Will not be watching. one is a wanna be intellectual, one is a criminal and one is just plain too fugly. Why are these people famous?

  • Pete

    My friend worked on the production and said Scarlett was very nice. Gwyneth not so much. RDJ was cool too.

  • Raquel

    Oh my, Paltrow is going to be PISSED!

  • funk

    I wish we had a better view of the cover. Looking good.
    ScarJo is beautiful.

  • just sayin’

    Yeah, GP will probably go on a fast
    They probably put the leads on the cover — Robert, Scarlett and Mickey.

  • Tony Stark

    I would have preferred Emily Blunt in this role, but I can’t see Johansson being any worse than Paltrow, who is a little long in the tooth to still be playing ingenue parts.
    I think the movie will be excellent thanks in large part to Mr. Robert Downey Jr.!

  • stella

    Yeah, better scans. They all look amazing!
    I guess Black Widow must have a bigger part if Scarlett is on the cover instead of Gwyneth.

  • n.o.l.a

    Paltrow RUINS this for me like she did Iron Man. RDJ is a sexy beast though. And good for the Cheadle, getting as summer blockbuster. Don is one of the most under appreciated actors in Hollywood.

  • Shae

    jen if you don’t like it, don’t post.

  • sweetness

    I am glad to know I am not the only one who is tired of seeing Scarlett Johansson. I think she is an awful actress, my preference would have been Emily Blunt….and this cover photoshoot does nothing for me…
    I don’t even get why Mickey Roarke was cast…..

    @ #24 “I think the movie will be excellent thanks in large part to Mr. Robert Downey Jr.!”


  • wetnose

    yay. mickey is in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Marketing_Secret_Sauce

    I can’t wait to hear a really horrible fake accent.

  • Irish Girl

    @ann: Can I borrow your crystal ball, or do you have super powers to see the future. Don’t pretend that you know someone’s motivations – especially in marriage. You don’t.

  • Irish Girl

    I watched “Less Than Zero” last night. Robert Downey Jr. is an amazing actor. I’m glad that he cleaned up and is making movies again. He’s a truly gifted actor. The other actors were caricatures next to him.
    I haven’t seen any of the “Iron Man” movies; I guess I have some catching up to do.

  • sweetness

    @ # 30…”I can’t wait to hear a really horrible fake accent.”

    I forgot SJ is playing a Russian..why did they not simply go out and find a hot looking Russian actress who could also act …

    now we will be either cringing or laughing at her feigning an accent…

  • joy

    there’s no Russian surname Romanoff….it’s Romanova!!!

  • me

    Wow…I didn’t even realize that was Scar-Jo. She looks completely different with red hair. For some reason I’m not excited about this movie. But I’m sure I’ll get excited when we get closer to the release date. I just hope it doesn’t suck.

  • ann

    @Irish Girl:

    I am sure, absolutely sure, you only can do one thing, wait. I know because I am saying that.

  • Safiya

    mickey rourke looks disgusting…
    i cant wait i loved the first iron man so hopefully this one is just as good

  • lakers fan in boston

    personally, i kinda think they did a bad job on the casting
    i think they added scarlett and mickey for star power,
    neither of them looks like they r gonna make their roles believable
    especially mickey, ill probably laugh in the theaters seeing him in this movie

  • luly

    I dont like scarlett and gwyneth. they are terrible actrisses!



  • lambman

    Scarlet doesn’t look very good in these pics, I wish they would have had Emily Blut play that role like was rumored….also, can she ever close her mouth in a picture?

  • Jazzy

    Honestly, I was excited looking at this cover until I registered that Scarlett Johansson was also in the movies. I’m really pissed that Emily Blunt couldn’t be in it b/c I am definately not looking foward to her playing a Russian. I’m preparing myself to hysterically laugh at her attempts at a Russian accent. Possibly one of the worst castings I’ve seen in comic book adaptation…

  • Crybaby

    Emily Blunt WAS casted but couldn’t take due her other obligations with another comic movie by another movie studio. There were rumours Johansson was originally screen tested too. Anyway filming will be finished this week so its kinda late to bitch about it now.

  • radar

    @sandra: WHY DO YOU HATE SCARLETT?!?!!!!!!!!

  • radar

    why do you hate scarlett?!?!

  • BG

    What happened with Terrence Howard? I loved him in it. I prefer him to Don. Does anyone know why Terrence dropped out?

  • Jokergurl

    Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke in the same movie and they’re going to have a smack down too? AWESOME! Scarlett’s pretty cool too. I am excited for this movie, because Downey really is Tony Stark, I mean common the man survived prison for two years, drugs, everything he IS Iron Man! Mickey Rourke too is just great, he’s always been talented, he had snags with his career too. I imagine these two get along pretty well.
