Black Widow Confirmed For Iron Man 3?

Production is about to begin in the next couple of months on Iron Man 3 but we really haven't heard any solid details about the third installment. You'd think at this point they'd start revealing the villain and the new cast members but nothing yet. There had been rumors of nanobots being involved. That hasn't been confirmed and sounds like someone starting rumors while watching G.I. Joe: Rise of The Cobra.

However, there is now a legit casting call sheet from FeatureFilmCasting (via DenOfGeek) that lists returning supporting cast members Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (Rhodey/War Machine) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow). The former two had been previously confirmed but this is the first time we've heard Johansson's name attached to the sequel. Of course currently it's unknown the extent of Black Widow's role in the film it could end up just a cameo. Yet with writer/director Shane Black comparing this installment to a Tom Clancy-thriller it would make sense to see a SHIELD presence.

“The storyline is being described by writer-director Shane Black as being a Tom Clancy-thriller, with Iron Man fighting real world villains. Black stated, “the studio wasn't happy with the result of Iron Man 2, as a result that pretty much came about due to a rushed production schedule in an attempt to hit a release date rather than simply make a good film, but I digress. Iron Man 3 will not be another, 'two men in iron suits fighting each other’”.
