Iron Man 2 update

07.21.2009

As of today, IRON MAN 2 has officially finished principal photography -- just in time for director Jon Favreau to put together some footage to torch retinas at this week's Comic Con, no doubt. (I almost said "hastily assemble" some footage, but after the shiny reception he got with his Comic Con clip a couple years back, it's a safe bet Favs has been thinking about what he'd show before he even started filming the sequel.)

Producer and Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Feige had this to say: "Shooting IRON MAN 2 was a fantastic experience and we couldn't be happier. Although there were many challenges in making this film, having Jon Favreau, Robert Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow and almost the entire crew from the first film back on board, allowed us to hit the ground running as everyone was instantly familiar with each other from day one. This dynamic allowed us to get done what we needed on a day to day basis and was a big factor in why we finished slightly ahead of schedule."

Also, here's a few interesting and juicy bits from the recent issue of EW.

Mickey Rourke gives a tiny detail about his villain Whiplash: "I told Favreau 'I don't want to just play him as a one-dimensional prick.' He let me have a cockatoo, who I talk to and get drunk with while I'm making my suit."

Favreau on the notable 'Demon in a Bottle' comic storyline (Tony Stark's descent into alcoholism): "It would end up feeling like LEAVING LAS VEGAS. The story doesn't give you much."

Gwyneth Paltrow on her romantic rivalry with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow: "The men want it to be like 'Ooh, the girls are fighting over Tony', but it's not that standard. There's a weird male catfight fantasy."

Expect lots more IRON MAN meat from San Diego this week!

Extra Tidbit: Downey apparently now carries a black case stocked with herbal supplements, natural elixirs and cigars.

I hope this is one of those cases where the sequel is better than the original.

Talking to a cockatoo? Really?

So we get Whiplash as Baretta? Someone tell me again why Mickey Rourke is "freakin' awesome?"

I never understood why Ironman left his power source open to attack.

I love all this except that Scarlett Johansson is always terrible. I really hope she doesn't ruin this movie.

Small issue

But isn't the villain's name Whiplash as Backlash is copyrighted by Image comics?

Since Tony Stark had a cameo in THE INCREDIBLE HULK I think it would be cool if we see Banner in IRON-MAN 2, I'd like to see a IRON-MAN vs. BACKLASH vs. HULK fight, and why not throw WAR MACHINE in there.

FAVREAU, WHAT A DOUCHE!

What the hell is he talking about the alcohol story line would be like Leaving Las Vegas. Last time I checked, Tony Stark was an alcoholic way before Nicolas Cage's character in that movie.

And obviously Iron Man 2 wouldn't end up like Leaving Las Vegas, so I have no freaking clue what he is talking about.

And what are YOU talking about ?
Its simple, Favreau isnt interested in doing that story line cause he'd feel like he is shooting a remake of Leaving Las Vegas. Cant it be any more obvious ?

Haha, Mickey Rourke is a weirdo.

I didnt think the first Iron Man was that great, but I am looking forward to the sequel.
