Picture Trivia
          In the film Iron Man 2 (2010), Scarlett Johansson needed to color her hair red to portray the role of Black Widow. Mickey Rourke, on the other hand, needed to go to Russia to make actual research about Russian tattoos to make the marks on the body of the villain he is portraying, Ivan Vanko, realistic.
          In the part of the film, when Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man, portrayed by Robert Downey Jr) asked Natalia Rushman (a.k.a. Black Widow) if she can really speak Latin, the latter replied “Fallaces sunt rerum species,” most possibly borrowed from De Beneficiis (On Benefits) by Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 5 B.C. – A.D. 65, Roman philosopher, statesman at dramatist), meaning “Appearances can be deceiving.”
