Nothing like the thought of having to stuff yourself into a Lycra catsuit to get an actress pumpin’ – iron.
At least that’s how it happened for Scarlett Johansson. To play the Russian spy Black Widow in “Iron Man 2,” she adopted a true superhero workout.
“I kicked some major butt,” she told People magazine at Comic-Con. “It was many, many, hours, days, and months of stunt training and strength training, but it’s fun because I had a goal. The goal was the Lycra catsuit.
“It was crazy to see it for the first time – everything all zipped up and all the weapons in there, bracelets on, the whole look. It was pretty sweet, I have to say.”
“Iron Man 2” opens May 7, 2010.
