^She pulls her weight, don't worry.

Let's put it this way, she was a valuable member of a Mighty Avengers team that included Ms. Marvel, The Sentry, Ares and Iron Man.

Some jobs require a bit of subtlety, which isn't exactly Thor's strong suit.

You know, for all the complaining that's done about CGI sometimes, some days it still amazes me. If I recall correctly, while filming that shot, RDJ did not have an entire costume on, it was just around his shoulders and maybe his hands. I might be wrong, but isn't the majority of that suit CGI in that photo?

Aside from the knee cap everything below the waist is CGI, amazing.

That's not a knee cap, that's his glove.

Wow.. impressive. I suppose that'd it be hard to get him up there with the full bulky armor they had, plus who knows maybe they were still locking down what the Mark IV would look like, and didn't want to just recycle the old Mark 3 suit - plus wasn't that some of the footage that was shown at last year's SDCC? But that's amazing CGI, you don't even know or realize it unless you see the before shot.

That is just such a cool image. I mean hey if I had a suit of powered flying armor, I'd hang out wherever the frak I wanna hang out! If that means I'm gonna go and walk in to a donut shop, buy some donuts and a cup of coffee and park my armored ass up on top of the building inside the giant donut where no little kids can go "Hey Mr. Stark can you blast something? Or can I play with your helmet? Or can I have ten dollars?"

They were also shooting during magic hour, so time was of the essence. Probably didn't want to be mucking around with a suit when you have 15 minutes to get your shot.

Even more impressive.

I think it would be funny if we saw Stark waiting in line to buy donuts.

Sort of like Spider-Man 2 when Parker is in the elevator.

Well the mark 3 is still totaled. In Stark fashion "Why repair it when you can improve upon it/build another?"




MARK I - Reconstruction
MARK II - Prototype
MARK III - Battle Damaged or Badly Damaged
MARK IV - Awaiting Upgrade

Re: Iron Man 2: Build up till release DISCUSSION

And I AM glad that when they made this movie they didn't just have Tony use another "copy" of the last movie's suit. And the Mark IV is still similar enough to the original suit aside from subtle differences in the shoulder pads, gauntlets and chest to not look completely alien. But it also suits Tony's personality from the comics. I mean the Mark 3 was basically a suit he used for really two battles. The one in Gulmira and with Monger. After that, part of the suit's purpose was for showing off and doing some odd hero work here and there. Mostly I think its Tony's new favorite toy. He probably wears the armor to pick up his own damn dry cleaning LOL since after all, Pepper is the new Stark CEO.

I'm still curious to see how the whole "Natalie/Natalia/Natasha" thing works out in the film. I don't really want to read the novel because I know it won't feel like the movie and y'know I want to be surprised! But I'm wondering if she'll be playing the good girl for the most part or if she'll be like her Ultimates incarnation and sort of a double agent, who screwed Tony so she could get access to his armor tech. I still think the latter will be in the film, she'll flirt and be well... ScarJo... woman can get a rise out of a frakkin' statue!, but I think she's working more for SHIELD than the KGB.

Seems like there's a lot of movie in this movie. Whiplash, Hammer and his armored drones, Black Widow, the Stark Expo, intro of War Machine. Gonna be a big ass movie.

Still not sold on the look of whiplash but all the new armors have me giddy with excitement. Now if we get one with a nose and roller skates I will fall out of my chair while watching.

If they want to include Black Widow in any future films--such as has been rumoured for Avengers (and I'd love to see her star in a Russian-themed film of her own, myself)--then they would really have to make her one of the good guys in the end. And I do believe one of the posters we've seen has her crouching off to the side in a SHIELD uniform (though, given that this is Black Widow, she might have just stolen it).

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I think it's funny they could make an Iron Man suit that could move it's neck quicker than the Batman movies could figure it out!
