Scarlett JohanssonHollywood hunk Robert Downey says that he and filmmaker Jon Favreau roped in Scarlett Johansson for the sequel to Iron Man not just because of her greatlooks, the 25-year old actress playing a sexy Russian spy is not going to be a simple eye candy in the movie, Contactmusic reported.



"We were thrilled to get Scarlett and we said to her,'You're not going to be some kind of Marvel spin-off story thing because we want a hot chick kicking in this movie.' And I think we managed that," Robert said.

The upcoming movie, which is based on the Marvel comic book series sees Johansson engaging in a love triangle with Tony and his assistant Pepper Potts, portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow. "A love triangle is a device, and a love triangle is convenient, and a love triangle - even done badly - is better than not having one at all," Robert said.
