What's That You Say? Crimson Dynamo In Iron Man 2?

At least in the video game!

At least in the video game!



 
Want more Marvel Iron Man 2 teaser images? Wish granted. It looks like Iron Man will be going head to head against Crimson Dynamo in the upcoming Iron Man 2 video game from Marvel and Sega. I admit, that's pretty cool. More importantly though, does that mean there is a chance that we might see a Crimson Dynamo appearance in the Iron Man 2 movie? Back in February of last year, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that Mickey Rourke would not be playing Crimson Dynamo, well not exactly anyway.
 

 When pressed if, instead of Crimson Dynamo, Rourke was up for the role of Whiplash, another potential role...Downey had a more cryptic response.

“I can neither confirm nor deny that,” said Downey. “Or maybe it’s some semblance of both."

Semblance of both makes me a little bit nervous. Just please don't tell me they are going to pull a G.I. Joe.
 
We got a look at the upcoming Iron Man 2 game trailer being released by Sega a few days ago. Double the ammo, it looks like we'll be able to play as War Machine! Already, this game looks better than it's predecessor, which received an average 1.8/5 user rating over at Giant Bomb. Unfortunately, the quality of videogames that are based on movies are rarely stellar, and I feel like Sega dropped the ball the first time around. The material you get with Iron Man has the ability to make an awesome game, so I am hoping they learned from their mistakes the first time and that they'll do a better job with Iron Man 2. You hear me, Sega? I want more than a  game where you just fly around and shoot stuff, and then fly around some more. 

You guys already saw the teaser trailer with for Sega's Iron Man 2 videogame, but why not check it out again.  
Notice that about twenty seconds in, you get a glimpse of some red hair. Obviously, that means Black Widow is in the game, but will we be able to play as her character? Do you want to?
 
  
 
While you're at it, check out the first Iron Man 2 video game trailer which features more flying through the air and shooting stuff.

Well that's just the video game, Titanium Man appeared alot in the promotions for the first game , but he obviously wasn't in the movie

Awe man! For as cool as Whiplash does look, I'd have much rather had Crimson Dynamo as the actual "face-villain" of Iron Man 2. I hear that really movie Whiplash is an amalgam of his comic counterpart and comic Dynamo though, so in a manner of speaking we'll get him on screen. But really I'm just anxious for Mandarin.

Gonna play devil's advocate 
 
 
The armor shown does look similar to the robotic army WM and IM face in the teaser. Could Whiplash have given them the arc reactor technology for his own specially designed suit?

Well...like I said, apparently movie Whiplash was combined with Crimson Dynamo, so I'd say it's possible, for sure.

Well i think Crimson Dynamo is a much better hero for the game but what  their trying to do in the movie is not make the villain a armored one that canbeat tony beacause of his lac of experience so farin the game many things go alot of villains mainly machines are the enemy which it ironic if you think about it. But yea putting IRon man against one of his most equaly powered villains is good because it will be a challenge in the game and hopefully bring they bring more hard characters in the game the just Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash. Hopefully more of his big time vilains will be seen im hoping for a mandarin, a modok

Wouldn't Iron Man fighting Crimson Dynamo in Iron Man 2 look a lot like Iron Man fighting the Iron Monger in the first movie?

Posted by Moomin123

Black Widow, Justin Hammer, War Machine, an army of drones for Tony and Rhodey to blow the crap out of--what else are you expecting?

Why?  What does Crimson Dynamo bring to a movie that War Monger didn't bring to the first movie?

what kind of player is this, cause it doesn't show anything

Posted by CATMANEXE

I cant see why not, at least as a combatant. the trailer for the movie shows Iron Man and War Machine fighting a ton
of retrograded armored guys, a few being clones of Iron Monger.

I would not get too excited, superhero movie games usually have extra villians.  
 
Superman Returns Game was cooler than movie.

Seeing how bad the first game was. I'm hardly thrilled to even try this one. Most of these movie based games are pretty lame. It just strikes as as odd how these games are often released before the movie and their story roughly follows the movie's plot. They normally have the same ending. They are just promotional items and the creators aren't given much of a budget or room to really try anything drastic.
 
There could be room for improvement. The game based on the first Spider-man movie was horrid, but the sequel was pretty good. It was the first time a game really let you swing around town like Spider-man. The Ultimate Spider-man game was a lot of fun. Spider-man Web of Shadows....not so much.

@FoxxFireArt: 
im of the same exact opinion, and looking at trailers of it it looks to have the same gameplay as the former flop.

It is a video game of a movie property... Enough Said!

I think the Russians will get their hands on Stark tech
 
I haven't read any spoilers for the movie, just speculating

Looks about the same, but i'm still confident this one's gonna be better.
