Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Good Ol' Frosty from Collider had the chance to sit down with Robert Downey Jr. and pried some IRON MAN 2 info from him... I'll give you a taste, but you gotta click over to read the full interview for the whole shebang! Here's the pulls from the interview Frosty sent along:
Remember when filming began and word leaked that Gary Shandling was in the film and no one was really sure what part he played? Robert told us about the first day of filming and how Gary plays a Senator: Robert: Day one I’m doing a Senate hearing where the government is saying the Iron Man tech needs to be turned over to the Senator and the Senator is Gary Shandling. And we had this fantastic day that was somehow this controlled chaos of a Senate hearing where I keep interrupting them and dah dah dah. Another bit that Robert told us was how he is taking “Iron Man 2” more seriously than any movie he has ever done: Robert: And I’ve never been in a sequel and it’s very daunting because I feel the expectation of the millions of people who watched it and enjoyed it and told me that it was a little different than your usual genre picture and that they expected us to not screw it up. So I actually have taken “Iron Man 2” probably more seriously than any movie I’ve ever done, which is appropriately ridiculous for Hollywood. On the way the suit has been improved from the first film: Everything has been improved. Everything is ergonomic and the story is incredibly risky and artistic for a big genre movie.
