Scarlett Johansson. Black Widow. Latex. Need we say more?

The heat of the spotlight doesn't seem to bother Scarlett Johansson.
By most measures, "Iron Man 2" was seen as a bit of a disappointment. Not surprising for a sequel, of course. But the movie did bring us Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, a role she will reprise in next year's "The Avengers."

Johansson's character must share the screen with Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Chris Evans' Captain America, the Mark Ruffalo and CG versions of the Hulk, and Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury. But she recently told Jeremy Gordon of the MTV Splash Page that she doesn't seem to be too worried about getting lost in the ensemble cast of director Joss Whedon:
“There are a lot of people to serve in [‘The Avengers’], for sure. The Widow has a great story. I think Joss did a great job of weaving together all these characters’ stories. It was no small feat for him.”
Might we see her again in "Iron Man 3?"
“I have no idea. I don’t know if I can get that latex suit on after the finishing ‘Avengers.’ I might have to take a break from the latex suit for a minute, eat some real cheese, and then get back into it.”
"The Avengers" assembles in theaters on May 4.
