IRON MAN 2 Movie Clips Galore!

You can practically see the whole movie, now.

 Alright, I'm going to need you both to work in Washington for a year to prepare for this.

I remember reading that Heath Ledger prepared for his turn as the Joker by checking into a hotel room and keeping isolated for about month while he worked out the character’s voices and mannerisms, and even kept a diary written in his perspective. That seemed like the summit of an actor “going method” for a supervillain role, but I might have to reevaluate that conclusion after seeing these EPKs for IRON MAN 2. Scarlett Johannson went through months of hard core martial arts to convincingly play the Black Widow. Prepare to raise your eyebrows because Lucha Libre was actually amongst the styles she trained in. That’s right, acrobatic Mexican pro-wrestling (laying the seeds for her inevitably tag-team match with El Santo and Blue Demon). Jon Favreau definitely deserves applause for thinking outside the box.

Actually, it isn’t Scarlet’s training that really out-does Ledger’s method so much Mickey Rourke’s. In addition to brushing up on his knunchuks to be properly showy with the bullwhip, he actually checked into a Russian prison to get into the mindset of Whiplash. Now, THAT is committing to a role.   Hear it from the actors, themselves, below…
== TEASER == 

    
 

Now that the prep’s been described to you, you might as well see what all of it amounted to, am I right? We’ve also got a clip from the movie, here, showing Tony questioning Whiplash in a Moroccan prison. It’s interesting to see the range of tones represented between just these two clips. Honestly, I was a little lukewarm about seeing this movie, but these previews might have just swayed me into the avenue of anticipation. See for yourself...

LACK OF ACCENT FUELS THE RAGE TANK. KNEW SHE'D RUIN IT!

look i know people are going to get on Scarlett for her non Russian accent keep that rage in for a second and listen. Black Widow is a spy which means lies and deceit; if she's spying on Stark shouldn't she get rid of the accent to keep from suspicion?

Watch movie, then decide.


Seriously, why are people basing things like this off of so little?


Frankly, considering how the 1st movie did, I doubt they would risk screwing things up. You know there's going to be more Ironman movies, plus all the other Avengers' movies. If they start screwing things up now, people will just start losing interest. *cough* X-Men*cough*

im a cynic what can i say, ive seen 7 movies she's been in didnt like any of her performances. i didnt like any of the x-men movies. and honestly ive had doubts since day one that iron man 2 can live up to the first.

Why does everybody on tv and in movies seem to talk with that faux-lisp where they pronounce their S' and Fs at the same time and pretend to have lisps to seem more intelligent or important? Very annoying.
 
Aside from bad casting on Rhodes the movie looks good.

Top Story at 9: So many Iron Man 2 clips were released that eventually, fans could just put them together using iMovie and watch the movie in its entirety! More on this story at 9...
 
xP!

Why would an undercover Russian spy speak with a Russian accent? A real spy would cover their accent up completely.

Luckyly in my country it will premiere next Friday and I will be there

He intentionally checked into a Russian prison to prepare for a movie role? So it had nothing to do with his drunken police chase through the streets of Moscow?

@DH69:  Your allowed to have an opinion but it gets annoying after a certain point.

did he really do that.  I know for a fact the guy used to be a fall down drooling drunk but I thought he got his shit in order.

Does anyone know if whiplash is going to have his mask on (XD i know its weird but i really love villians masks (especially the one of Mr.Fear) )

What's with  the ridiculous demand that BW have a Russian accent? 
 
She's a SPY.  She wouldn't be much of a spy if she couldn't hide her accent, would she? 
 
She's not Molotov Cocktease, people.

i wanna watch it and i wanna watch it NOW!

Posted by Mbecks14

i'm avoiding as many clips as possible so i can just be blown away at theaters

Posted by PrinceIMC

Is it just me or did Robert Downey Jr. call Scarlett's character Natalie? Not Natalia or Natasha. That sounds a little odd unless its her undercover name but would he really look twice if her name was Natasha?

Black widow is so awesome ! Can`t wait to see the movie !!!

Posted by Abnormally Warm Guy
@PrinceIMC:  It could be a pet name. Stark would do that.
