Scarlett Johansson will reprise the role of Natasha Romanoff for the last time in Marvel's solo Black Widow movie, but the Academy Award-nominated Jojo Rabbit star actually made her debut as the character in 2010's Iron Man 2.
Now, a new photo of a then 23-year-old Johansson suited-up for her first costume test as the Lethal Avenger has been shared online via HNE's Christopher Marc.
We have seen some blurry test footage of Johansson in this outfit before (check out the banner image), but this is of a much higher quality. The costume appears to be practically identical to the one we saw in the movie, although it may not be quite as form-fitting around the shoulders. The biggest difference here is obviously Scarlett's hair, as the actress would end up sporting a somewhat obvious-looking curly wig for her debut as Romanoff.
We were recently able to confirm that Black Widow will definitely be given a theatrical release. Unfortunately, we have no idea when that's likely to be. Just last night, Sony Pictures delayed several of its big 2020 tenpoles until next year, and that's led to speculation that Disney may follow-suit on the likes of Widow and Mulan.
We'll just have to wait and see if an official announcement is made in the coming weeks.
