Are you interested to hear what is going down on the set of 'Iron Man 2'? That's a stupid question, of course you are! This is a movie that I can say with complete confidence we are all looking forward too. I really hope that Jon Favreau has some footage to show us at comic-con this year, because that would be super. In the mean time Robert Downey Jr. is talking about it and gives us some nuggets of detail about the story.
“Day one I’m doing a Senate hearing where the government is saying the Iron Man tech needs to be turned over to the Senator and the Senator is Gary Shandling, and we had this fantastic day that was somehow this controlled chaos of a Senate hearing where I keep interrupting them and dah dah dah.”
He also mentions that there will be a new Iron man suit in the sequel, which I am pretty interested to ge a look at. I imagine it won't be much different from the first suit but a few little tweeks here and there. Downey goes on to say:
“The set pieces have to do with things that aren’t your typical, like, bad guy conflict. The relationships are very complex and hilarious. The motivations Tony has and why he turns around and does things has completely to do with his own internal processes and it really is, I think, as much as we tried to in the first one really see behind the façade of this kind of storytelling. We really, I think, leaving ourselves open to…we’re kind of trying to tell a story about how a dysfunctional family saves life on Earth as we know it.”
A dysfunctional family saving life on Earth... perfect. I would have to say that almost all superheros are dysfunctional in one way or the other. They have a lot of pressure on their shoulders! Downey also makes mention of Mickey Rourke's performance in the movie.
“I’ve seen his stuff and it is literally remarkable. Literally remarkable. He’s so good. And he’s formidable and he’s very much reminding me of that kind of charming, confident guy that we know.”
And there you have it folks! That latest news to come from the guys working on 'Iron Man 2'. I just want to say that it will most likely be better than the first one.
