Scarlett Johansson dons the 'Iron Man' suit, among other things...


'Iron Man 2' related movie news would make anyone excited, right? During filming, premiere french television network Canal Plus caught up with director Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. on the set of the film and were able to get a sneak tour. During the interview, Favreau discussed how much easier it is for him to make a superhero movie sequel knowing now what he does about the process and the technology involved.
 
Note that the introduction is in french, but the interview is in English with french subtitles.
 
  

"Yeah number two is easier...comedies number two is bad because you do the same story again. In superhero movies it's better. Usually when you look at most superhero movies two is better than one...Robert might feel the pressure more than I do because his performance was so strong and he was the focus of a lot of the attention; it was his big comeback. Now it's a lot easier to make a comeback than to maintain a level of success."

No Caption Provided
This is a really short but in depth look not only at the way that Favreau has developed Tony Stark's character in his second film, but we also get the chance to get a peek at the process of directing the film itself. Did I mention we get to see Scarlett Johansson in the Iron Man suit? While watching the short documentary footage, be sure to look out for what promises to be a pretty intense scene between 'Iron Man' and 'Black Widow.' 
 
While the attraction between these two characters seems pretty evident, MTV more recently caught up with Favreau and asked about whether or not the film's romantic focus would stray from the relationship between Stark and his assistant Pepper Pots. 
 
  

"I think the central relationship is still Pepper and Tony, but now we introduce Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and she has a dual identity, so that ends up affecting both the superhero side of things and the personal side of things—as I think all good superhero plot-lines do"

Love triangle, anyone? Are you looking forward to seeing the upcoming 'Iron Man 2' film? What are you most excited about?

I'm glad we'll actually get to see Tony fight outside of the suit, I noticed he was training with happy in the boxing ring, I'm looking forward to this movie, too bad no hulk  although I don't really think it would fit in with this world so much.

What's amazing is how realistic the suit looks. Even in a crappy picture like this, you can still be captivated by the special effects.
