UPDATED: Check out cleaner versions above from Entertainment Weekly.

Now this is an old-school online "first look." This latest Entertainment Weekly is a big Iron Man 2 and ComicCon preview, and the issue itself was previewed on Entertainment Tonight, where several quick geeks were ready to screen grab it. There will be high-res versions soon, but for now it's kind of fun to revel in the sheer nerdiness it took to obtain it.

Scarlett Johansson looks quite unlike herself. It's not just the wig and the catsuit, her entire face seems to belong to an unknown actress. While I know it's probably just the angle of these two photos, and the fact that they're skewed and blurry, I will hold out hope that she will be totally unrecognizable. I want my Natasha Romanova to be vaguely anonymous looking. One of my problems with the Johansson casting was that she's always the Scarlett Johansson, and doesn't ever seem to match the surroundings. But if there's a cast she can be outshone in, it might just be this one. The world of Iron Man is pretty top-loaded, after all.

I can't wait to see an official picture, though. Considering the Black Widow has a fairly "real world" suit, I'm sure she's going to look like she walked right off a comic cover.
