Re: Iron Man 2: Build up till release DISCUSSION

That she is. I think really, Iron Man was her best role so far. I never used to like her that much before Iron Man, but she just embodied the sassy, sexy cute Pepper Potts. I also really liked the "old time" feel the whole Stark/Potts relationship had. It reminded me so much of those old timey comedies like with Spencer Tracey and the girl actress du jour, where they'd have this witty repartee and fast back and forth. I mean even that whole exchange during Trailer 2 when they first show off Scar Jo as the "Notary"

"I want one."

Pepper gives a cute lip thing, "No."

Pure classic old Hollywood right there.

Although one thing that popped up during that one scene in that new clip trailer thingy... you see the limo that Happy usually drives racing the opposite direction of the other F1 cars... could it be... is that where HAPPY HOGAN saves the day?! I recall an old issue of Iron Man where Tony explains why he trusted Happy so much "When he pulled me from the burning wreck of my crashed Indy car I knew he could be trusted." or something like that.

If so... nice little nod to the source there, if its Happy that literally races to Tony's rescue with the Mark V suitcase

This seems to be a significant departure from the comics, where Nick Fury had no part in the formation of the Avengers (as far as I know).
In the Ultimate Marvel universe, Nick Fury (who is based on Samuel L. Jackson in that universe) is a founding member and the leader of the Ultimates (the Ultimate Marvel iteration of the Avengers). So that's probably what inspired Fury's involvement in the formation of the Avengers in the films.
Hmm... I didn't know that, or anything else about the Ultimate Universe. Over there, do Captain America and Fury ever clash over leadership of the superhero team? Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury may form the Avengers on film, but I can't see him bossing Cap, Iron Man and Thor around.

Nick Fury is - as noted - head of SHIELD. through the first arc, Fury's basically putting together the Ultimates and trrying to get a recreation of the Captain America formula. They find and thaw out Cap and fight Hulk in New York. The second arc revolves around the Ultimates and SHIELD fighting off a Skrull invasion.

Ultimates 2 sees them getting involved in the Mid-East, despite the promises made that they were strictly for homeland defence against superhuman threats. the arc culminates in an invasion of America and the Ultimates leaving US government control. they set up as The Avengers at Stark's NY mansion. That's the state of play in Ultimates 3, which then leads into Ultimatum and many changes to the status quo.

That's awesome if Bethany Cabe is in it...perhaps she'll get a more prominent role in Iron Man 3.

OK she's not playing Bethany. Maybe she's playing Janet Van Dyne.

OK, maybe she's the water delivery girl. I can see Stark signing up for the service if the delivery person is pretty.

Well someone needs to update IMDB, even the article mentions that.
In fact, the rumor got to be so strong that even Mara’s IMDb profile lists her playing that role. However, she was anxious to dispel it today.
Seems they missed opportunity then to include another character in Stark's repertoire of redheads.

Re: Iron Man 2: Build up till release DISCUSSION

Are the billionaire superheroes headed for a switch at the top? Can Iron Man 2 overthrow The Dark Knight for opening weekend.

The Los Angeles Times reports that tracking surveys for Iron Man 2 indicate that the movie could potentially top the $158.4 million domestic opening record of The Dark Knight (the foreign record of $236 million is held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). Thanks in part to Downey, the Paramount-distributed film is drawing as much (strong) interest among women over 30 as it is among women in their 20s, the tracking surveys show. Males in their teens and 20s are so keen on the film they may as well be dressing up in an iron suit. About the only people who aren't fully sold are teen girls, but there are signs of robustness there too.
In 2008, Iron Man opened to $98.6 million domestically and went on to gross $318.4 million. Internationally, the film earned $266.7 million for a worldwide total of $585.1 million.
