Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of the Iron Man folks were out and about filming some scenes in public yesterday. Someone was lucky enough to catch this shot of Robert Downey Jr. in half the Iron Man costume. No details as to what the shot is, or what they were filming. Though the much anticipated Scarlett in tight black leather has not surfaced on the internet, yet. I give it another few hours.
Here’s the first shot from Iron Man 2 of Downey Jr. in the costume.
Some of you know Kate Mara. She’s done TV (“Law & Order: SVU”, “Everwood”, “Nip/Tuck”, “CSI: Miami” and a bunch more), and branched out into movies (Shooter, Brokeback Mountain, Transsiberian).
What you may not know is that she’s got a little sister, who’s also an actor. Her name’s Rooney Mara, and she’s also done quite a bit of TV (also “Law & Order: SVU”, and most recently a few episodes at the end of “ER”).
It’s good to be a Mara this week, because they’ve both landed pretty huge roles, which will certainly help their careers.
Kate has been cast in Iron Man 2. No details are available about the role, as of yet.
Rooney has (reportedly) been cast as Nancy Thompson in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. Yes, the main character.
You can seel below how similar the two are. When I saw Rooney on “ER”, I knew that she had to be related to Kate Mara. Not only do they look alike, but they sound alike, and accentuate words the same way.
We previously reported that Mickey Rourke would not be in Iron Man 2, due to an insultingly low salary offer. Apparently, something changed his mind.
It was announced late yesterday afternoon, that the salary issue had been resolved, and Mickey Rourke will be playing the Russian villain.
My guess is that he finally realized being in this movie might lead to more Marvel movies, with bigger budgets, and bigger paychecks.
Also, rumor has it that Scarlett Johansson has officially been cast to replace Emily Blunt, as Black Widow. At this point, this is still speculation, and has not been confirmed by the studio, or Scarlett’s reps.
Rumors hit the internet late last night of casting new in Iron Man 2. Rumor has it that Marvel Studios is in talks with Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell to be cast in the new Iron Man movie.
Rumor has it that Rourke will be cast to play Crimson Dynamo.
Rumor also has it that Rockwell will be cast to play Justin Hammer. In the comics Justin Hammer financially supported Dynamo in his quest to squash Iron Man.
As of now, this is just a rumor, and has not been confirmed (or denied) by Marvel.
