More than one thought galloped across my mind when I saw our exclusive photos of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Iron Man 2. In an effort to keep this a SFW post, here are the ones fit for polite company:

1.I’m very curious to see if Scarlett tries a Russian accent, as the character is — in the comics, anyway — an Eastern bloc operative named Natasha Romanoff.

2. Red is a very, very good color for her.

3.I wouldn’t have thought it, but we’ve got a battle of the comic-booky redheads brewing, with Rachel Nichols appearing as Scarlett in August’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. And ScarJo has come out swinging.

So,I put it to you, PopWatchers, if you’ve gotta choose between knockout actresses with red manes, black leather cat suits, and big guns, who’s your pick?
