Favs, Rourke on IM2

05.28.2009

The guys at Empire manged to catch up with both director Jon Favreau and lead Mickey Rourke as they spoke a little about what's going on in IRON MAN 2. Favs said:

"Tony's expected to be a role model and I don't think he's ready to be one. He's under a great deal of pressure and when you're under pressure, I think you find outlets for that. That's one of the tensions of the film: it's one thing to say you're Iron Man, and another thing to actually become Iron Man... Rhodesy is definitely stepping up in this film. Let me put it this way: Tony's not the only person with technology in the film."

And as for Mickey Rourke? Seems like that dude is having a good time:

"I'm having the time of my life! It's been really brutal, because my Iron Man suit weighs 23lb. It's sort of a half-suit, with half my skin showing, with lots of Russian tattoos, because [Whiplash is just] out of a Russian-zone prison."

... Which is great. I mean that dude did a lot of hell-raising, but for whatever reason now, it just feels like he deserves to have some fun. Like me. And all of us, really!
Extra Tidbit: This will be the first of Marvel's sequels.

This will be at the top of my movie list for next year. I think Don will work better than Terence. He was my only let down with the first movie. Rourke is a great addition as is Rockwell and they will make a interesting pair of villains. As for the Black Widow character, I think Emily Blunt would have been perfect although I can see ScarJo working too. Despite what some people say, she can act and she looks like a how a lot of female superheroes are drawn. Bring on the skintight outfit!

Highly anticipating...

...this movie! Rourke is the man and if you ask me his real comeback came in the form of a movie called Sin City. Marv was a bad ass. It just took Darren Oronofsky to show Hollywood what was up. Just wish they didn't lose Terrance Howard. Idiots.

Can't Wait

Love the whole idea that Stark is having issues in being the role model, which is EXACTLY the way the comics started, which led to his debauchery and alcoholism. Also great is Marvel seems to be going at their own pace towards that Avengers movie. I'm pretty excited for Thor especially with them not immediately going after big name talent in it.

Its amazing how smoothly things can go(at least seem to go) when you have a production company that actually respects the source material and doesnt

In this case the source material IS marvel... I only wish that DC was given the same freedom, but alas being owned by Time Warner means you occasionally get horrific dialogue like "Cool out birboy". God that movie was an abomination...

MATTCHU161... pay attention

Marvel Studios didnt develop the Spider-Man movies. Iron Man was their first, followed by The Incredible Hulk.

Wasn't Spider-Man...

...part of Marvel? Therefore, that would mean this ISN'T the first sequel in Marvel, since Spider-Man spawned 2 sequels.

Whiplash? Wow talk about a blast from the past. I remember the first comic I read with Whiplash in it. Cannot wait for this. I wonder how ScarJo is doing. I'm not expecting much from her in this movie, but I hope I'm wrong.

This sounds like the classic ase where the sequel is better than the original. I'm glad Rourke is calm and enjoying himself.

Nice. Love hearing this. Sounds like Rourke is having fun with the role and Don Cheadle will be donning War Machine in IM2. All amazing to my ears.

Fangasm

It sounds like IM2 will be geek porn for all of us comic fans. Everything released looks like they're just having a ball. When the crew is having a good time, it normally means the audience will too.

Sounds like everything is flowing smoothly. The first Iron Man wasn't anything insane, just a lot of fun and great times.

Looks like the second will deliver even more!
