Even enviable-looking Scarlett Johansson looked lovely in the promos of Iron Man 2 as Russian spy Black Widow.

Previously 22 years old actress revealed her biggest challenge was preparing to wear her character's revealing Lycra catsuit.

"[It was] very challenging and really exciting for me because I have never had to do anything like this before," the actress told Access Hollywood on Saturday at Comic-Con in San Diego. "It's really exciting to see it all culminate to this point and really get to see the Black Widow up there on the big screen."source

Johansson told WebMD that landing the role of the Black Widow in director Jon Favreau's follow-up to Iron Man was "a total dream come true." She continued:

"I was such a fan of the first movie. It's just super action packed, and I'm so geeked about about it. Jon Favreau, the director, is also super geeked out about it, so we're in it together."

Johansson said that the film role offered her new challenges as an actress:

"It was a whole new world for me, but I built a lot of strength, that's for sure. Working on the wires and being suspended in the air, you throw one wrong kick or punch and, yeah, you're out of whack. But once you're working with the stunt crew and they're going through the craziest stuff, you feel bad about complaining that your knee has been blue for three months. The guys doing the stunts in those Iron Man suits, they can't move in it and can't take it off. I'd say, 'Have you peed today?' and they're like, 'No, we can't move, we can't take it off, we can't drink water.'"

Johansson confirmed that she will be appearing in The Avengers and said that she hopes her success will help shine some light on the causes she has championed.

"If you already have the spotlight shining on you, it's great to direct that towards a cause you believe in and that you can stand behind. It's nice to be a voice for people who don't have a voice."source
