Comic-Con '09: Quint rocks out to the IRON MAN 2 footage! Scarlett! Rhodey! WAR MACHINE!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here to give you the full rundown of the IRON MAN 2 panel at Comic-Con! Footage description: Kevin Feige is brought out. Keep the tone. Brought out Favreau. Footage first. Looks like a shitty DVD extra, something a step above what Kenny Powers put together to show off his arm for baseball talent scouts. Just some greenscreen stuff. Downey comes out. “Fuck that! What was that? Unadulterated garbage. You showed me better stuff in the editing room!” Feige tryies to step in. “No, no this is bullshit!” The crowd is cheering, knowing what’s coming. Turns out that Favreau is a little distracted. It’s his son Max’s 8th birthday… Downey leads audience in Happy Birthday, singing like an Italian waiter, ending with him saying “You better show some real footage.” And so he did. It opens with Downey eating a donut in the donut hole of Randy’s donuts, completely in suit except for his helmet, which is off. He’s wearing sunglasses and just chilling. Suddenly “Sir! I’m gonna have to ask you to exit the donut.” is called from the ground and the camera pulls back revealing the back of a bald head with an eye-patch strap. Yep, Sam Jackson as Nick Fury. The next scene we’re in Randy’s donuts, eating and drinking coffee together, like two normal people… except one is Nick Fury and the other is Iron Man, in full suit (minus helmet). Downey makes a crack about turning his patchy eye away from him. The next scene is Downey sitting in a Senate hearing being grilled by Gary Shandling’s Senator Stern, who is trying to get the Iron Man tech. “Do you or do you not possess a specialized weapon?” Downey responds that he doesn’t. It’s a “high tech prosthesis,” and says that he is Iron Man, the suit and him and one and the same and he will not hand his tech over to the government. That would be akin to indentured servitude or prostitution… which, the senators might be familiar with. Rhodes is brought out and Cheadle is playing him stoic, but still beholden to his country. Stark makes a big speech, playing to the crowd, who eats it up, saying that Iron Man is a nuclear deterrent and peace has been achieved just by his presence. He throws up a peace sign to many cheers and really pisses Gary Shandling off. He screams out “Fuck you, Mr. Stark! Fuck you, buddy!” Of course it looks like a feed from C-SPAN or CNN and the f-bombs are bleeped out. Stark blows him a kiss as he puts his glasses on. Next we see a series of Tony Stark articles as Mickey Rourke studies him. We can barely tell it’s him, he’s only shown in shadow as he tries to mimic Stark’s technology. Then it’s Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow fighting in a bright hallway. This got a ton of cheers. She looks great in the role and put the beat-down on a few poor souls. Rourke’s attack at the racetrack comes up next and it looks fantastic. We see the armature suit and the electric whips tearing up concrete he walks among car debris, approaching a downed Tony Stark (out of costume) who is disoriented and bleeding. We get a glimpse of Stark opening his shirt and what looked like an infection spreading out from his RT Unit, like black veins before we see a money shot of Iron Man avoiding flack in a night sky, looking sharp as hell as he plummets to Earth. Then IRON MAN 2 with BLACK SABBATH running on in the background… but that’s not all… The footage faded to black and then fades up again in a warehouse as Rhodes stands in front of a clutter of silver suit parts. Sam Rockwell strolls in, totally cocksure and slick. Rockwell shows off a series of guns, hand-held machine guns, shotguns and a massive mini-gun like Schwarzenegger used in T2. Rockwell asks what all the guns are for. Rhodey says “It’s classified.” Rockwell asks which of the guns Rhodey wants. “All of them.” Then the big, big money shot. WAR MACHINE, black and silver and slightly bulkier than the IRON MAN suit, in action. The mini-gun is mounted on his shoulder, twisting and firing as War Machine’s arms are out. Instead of repulsor rays, bullets come streaming out of his arms, spewing spent casings as hundreds of rounds are shot off at once. It was beautiful, actually. It’s a night war scene, lit by fire and and the light of his guns firing. The crowd went apeshit. Panel tidbits: - Scarlett dyed her hair red before she got the part, which Favreau thought showed a lot of commitment. - Most of Mickey Rourke’s scenes are with Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) - Mickey went to a Russian prison (voluntarily) after he heard his character spent time in a Russian prison. There was probably more from the panel, but that was the gist of it and what we saw. The footage looked just as good as what we saw in the original and Downey is on the ball, man. I love his Stark. The footage totally got the geek juices flowing and erased any doubts that the movie might not live up to the original. Of course, that’s just a few money shots, but it’s also the character moments and the work from Downey that got me super excited. Can’t wait to see more! Hopefully they release the Con footage so everybody can see it and get jazzed. Will interrogate anyone I can to find out if that happens. Will report back with more soon! PS Sorry for the typos... been crazy trying to get these reports filed between panels and interview times (while fighting a draining battery no less) and it's radically cut back on my re-read time. -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    Did dying her hair red maybe show COMMITMENT? <P> But it all sounds radical. Robert Downey is the coolest.

    On my first post. Sounds great. Downey made the first film work. (Take out his line readings and expressions, and the film is merely good.) The talent is there; let's hope Act III is better this time.

    by mitortilla

    WTF Favreau

  • That's the only thing that kept the first one from being completely amazing in my opinion. It felt like Iron Monger was afterthought. I'm glad they put so much effort into properly establishing Tony Stark though.

  • July 25, 2009, 8:32 p.m. CST

    Downey and Favreau nailed the first film. They simply refuse to cock up the second. I cannot wait to see this film! This and LOST are THE highlights of this year's comic-con. C'mon 2010!

    I really loved the first movie, and I want to love this one, but I'm sensing villain overload. Rourke's character, Black Widow, Hammer, and didn't War Machine start as a villain? So, yeah, I'm a little worried

  • July 25, 2009, 9:13 p.m. CST

    Sounds good so far...

    by the dolphins are in the jacuzzi

    Finally, it seems that some superhero movie franchises are starting to see a correlation between A-list actors/actresses/directors/screenwriters and a successful series. It worked for the Spiderman movies (the first two, anyway), and it worked for Chris Nolan's Batman movies. Now Iron Man - Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson - all good additions. Fingers crossed on this one.

  • July 25, 2009, 9:15 p.m. CST

    War Machine a villain, BeastOfGevaudan?

    by raw_bean

    I thought it was that Rhodey took over as Iron Man for a while, then when Stark came back to it he let Rhodey keep an Iron Man suit and use it under the name War Machine.

    Not much equipment to hair dying really ...commitment, maybe but the equipment is pretty light, especially compared to Iron Man suit(s).

    by BeastOfGevaudan

    My only experience with Iron Man is the 2008 movie and the '94 cartoon, I vaguely remember War Machine doing bad stuff, but I haven't seen it in 15 years, so I may be wrong

    Sam "Rockwell strolls in, totally cocksure and slick. "

    by ZombieHeathLedger

    When does 'cocksure and slick' NOT describe Rockwell's characters? Rockwell was good in ONE movie, GALAXY QUEST as "Guy." Other than that he's been playing a variation of the same character, "cocksure and slick" for the last ten years.

    Favraeu is so Hollywood it makes me want to vomit

    by YackBacker

    Praising an actress for dying her hair red. Did she dye her pubis red too? Please- she got a decent salary, a shot at a top=tier franchise (which will continue in AVENGERS, etc.)- Favreau if you're reading this, it is you that lacks equipment for being such a fawning fake shit. Oh, and way to use an LA donut landmark in a movie- how fucking original.

    THE DARK KNIGHT (with a "K" homey) is an achievement separate from the comic book genre, let's just get that out of the way. But aside from that, Favraeu is no Chris Nolan. That's like comparing Roland Emmerich to Steven Spielberg. Ah, the Emmerich analogies continue in the FOUNDATION talkback...

    Sorry, but let's be honest. X2 was vastly better than the first X-Men. Spider Man 2 was one of the best super hero films made, the "second" hulk was not bad at all, and, in all actuality, the first F4 movie was actually fairly entertaining in a cartoony way. I'm fairly confident in the various Marvel Universe movies--and to be perfectly frank, who the hell cares about the fringe/less popular characters like Elektra?

    by Charger28

    You're right, X2 was better than X1....but what's the difference when comparing a 2 1/2 star movie to a 2 star. They are both just okay, X3 was suppose to hit it out of the park until Singer jumped ship...and we were left with that still born. If you read my previous post, you will noticed that I only listed Spidey 3. Spidey 1&2 were good movies. FF4 was like watching a direct to DVD superhero movie. It's only redeeming quality was that they used a real person to portray the Thing as oppose to a cheesey CGI hulk. Let's get back to 2 more Marvel movie ftanchises; GI Joe and Transformers...not too popular in the AICN community.

    by Rocklover79

    So Gwyneth isn't in the footage nor is she at the panel. Could be coincidence, could be her character gets a reduced role, or maybe she dies and isn't in the thing for very long. Or maybe those rumors about her being a massive bitch on-set this time around were true and she wasn't invited.

    by Charger28

    Let's talk about how they dropped Howard like a retarded baby. Then they had the balls to low ball Rourke with a pathetic 250,000 to play Whiplash. I remember back in the mid 90's whem Jim Carrey use to get 20 million a flick. Here we are 15 years later and Marvel won't even cover Rourkes plastic surgery costs. Fuck Marvel. I wish someone would buy the rights to Chaos Comics so we could get a live-action Lady Death or Evil Ernie flick!

    Rourke looks a bit gay

    by ominus

    in his whiplash wonder since whiplash was the gayest villain in the iron man comic. <p>i dont,although i loved the first movie,i am not very happy with what is happening with the sequel the sequel <p>i dont have a problem that howard left,i didnt like him very much as rodney, he didnt nailed the character very well. <p>and i dont have a problem with sam jackson as nick fury,as long as has a minor role in the sequel. <p>ofc i am glad rockwell and rourke are part of the sequel.they are great actors,and they will do a good job with their roles.and cheadle seems to me to be a better rodney than howard was. <p>what i really dont like is the overload of villains,this thing always hurt comic films. <p>then its scarlet johanson.i dont have a problem with her as an actress or as a beauty,but i really think she is not suitable for the role of black widow.ofc i have to see the film to see if i am correct with this one. <p>then there is i have said already he is the gayest character in the IM comics,although if i remember correctly in the volume3 series he had become a tragic villain.lets see if fauvre will give this kind of drama to his character. <p>and the last thing,is about someone mentioned above,she wasnt in the comicon and there was no footage shown with her.what is going to happen with her character? she had perfect chemistry with rdj,and her character is one of the most important ones in tonys life. <p>anyway i hope all my worries are unbased,and that the sequel will be greater than the first movie.time will tell.

    Quint, your reports thus far have been astounding. I'll speak for all of us who can't be there in thanking you. We're home waiting breathlessly for news, but it's not always easy to come by. Honestly, I expected most of the journalists at Comic-Con to be too wrapped up in enjoying themselves and taking it all in to bother to report until they got home. Then I expected lots of reports telling us how exhausted they were and how they only got 3 hours of sleep as an excuse for not reporting on the scene. You rock, Eric. Thanks for keeping the rest of us in the loop!

    Quint's CC reports have been very informative

    by ThePilgrim

    Meanwhile Chud's Devin is lambasting an Avtar Crew Member who emailed him. The Pricks publicly airing the email message for all to see. What a dick. To the point I've very much enjoyed AICN's coverage of the CC events. Quint actually put your there on the floor with him for the big panels. I'm still in shock over the lack of leaks. The leaky stuff never looks good, but it's still a taste. People think this stuff gives away to much or destroys the hype. I don't believe that for one second. If it sucks it might. It cost 20 million to advertise big picture- maybe more now. the Internet is the cheapest press there is. Hosting videos on you tube cost nothing. Not one fucking dime. It's retarded to keep these things so secret, unless they suck. The IMAX first 15 minutes of the Dark Knight didn't hurt that film one bit, and if the Studios heads are afraid of the footage ruining the hype machine or something retarded like that- then they should show less in these Comic con trailers, because in a way everyone here has already seen this trailer in the less involving way. Instead of a crappy cam copy they read the whole damn thing. Which isn't bad but I think if everyone had a choice they'd rather the first encounter with the material in it's fresh state be the actual trailer over someones textual description of it. No offense meant Quint. I praise you for giving it to us in the best possible way you legally can, and you have done a wonderful job. <P>Moving on. I enjoyed Iron Man I'm a big fan of Rouke all the way back to Rumble Fish. You know my ass is in that seat on day one.

I should have just bought a fucking whip and released a youtube video of me swirling it around my head."

  • July 26, 2009, 10 a.m. CST



    Because they are going to go from somewhat ridiculous to full-blown ridiculous, much like Hasselhead's ill-fated detective show did, what with the magic and gods and whatnot. I mean they're actually going to have Tony Stark interacting with a god for fuck's sake. Please explain to me how that's not going to be one of the most embarrassing things ever put on film. There's no fucking way it can be anything other than shit and embarrassing. FACT. Iron Man = Baywatch Nights (as in Baywatch Nights 1). The Incredible Hulk = Baywatch Nights 2. Iron Man 2 = Baywatch Nights 3. Thor = Baywatch Nights 4. The First Avenger: Captain America = Baywatch Nights 5. The Avengers = Baywatch Nights 6.

It's going to be a challenge. Hope they have a story that can support that much weight.<P>I loved IRON MAN. I constantly go back and forth debating which is my favorite superhero between it and SPIDEY 2 or THE INCREDIBLES. But, I have had little interest in a sequel because the concept seems one-note to me. They've got their work ahead of them to convince me otherwise.<P>And, oh yeah, Samuel L.

I didn't want anybody thinking Iron Man was anywhere close to being my favorite superhero, so I corrected myself and asserted that my favorite "superhero" - who is technically not a superhero - is Batman.<P>Burton's Batman is my favorite Batman movie, by far, and it is fourth on my list of superhero movies. Yeah, I dig Prince, too. (Granted, the songs could've been scrapped from the movie, but those were the times. At least it wasn't Michael Jackson or some hair metal.)<P>Hope that clears it all up.<P>Back to IRON MAN...

    Some of you SERIOUSLY need to get laid

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Seriously, you do. Get out of your house and go meet a girl or something. I can't believe those who are drooling and raving THAT much over Olivia Munn at the Con. After reading some of the posts, I googled and found the Con video clip at her web site. And while the Emma Frost costume was okay, the other form fitting costumes were less than flattering to her. Quite frankly, she's chunking out a bit (the Harly Quinn and Tomb Raider outfits showed that in particular).<P>Then again, maybe I'm spoiled since I live in Hollywood where its' a constant onslaught of hot looking, wannabe actresses doing whatever they can to showcase their goods. But for crying out loud, compared to porn starlets, professional models, movie or TV actresses or (as I noted) even wannabe young starlets, Munn is average at best.<p>As for IRON MAN 2, sounds like they're on the right track and it's going to be one of next year's biggest movies, no doubt. Frankly, I appreciate all the talk of how high and artsy DARK KNIGHT was, and it was a solid movie. But while I enjoyed it, I didn't think it was all THAT stunningly great as some always make out (then again I didn't get to see it till the end of its run, so perhaps by that time the overkill of hype and praise had set me up to be a bit let down). To be honest, I actually did enjoy IRON MAN more, so I'm glad to see its shaping up so well.

  • July 26, 2009, 7:35 p.m. CST


    by AsimovLives

    It's pretty easy, really, Just get the box offcie results, and subtract from them the combined movie's budget (pre production costs + production costs + advertizement), then add to the budget bank the interests that ass been accumulated since the movie was greenlit until first day of release. So, as you can see, it's merely a simple subtraction calculus. And thus, you can know if a movie is sucessful or not. Pretty easy, isn't it?

    It's bullshit. Everyone(at AICN) is saying it will fuck our eyeballs and etc... This movie is going to blow just like Final Fantasy did. James Cameron hit one out of the park with T2, but that's all were getting out of him. Does anyone really believe that Avatar will be the biggest CGI blockbuster of all time?

It's because that is the only time Tony Stark has EVER been interesting...<p>Downey brought the magic and made Stark a man every woman wanted and every man wanted to be...<p>Plot wise I see Justin Hammer back engineering Starks heart massaging energy source and testing it with a mad Russian scientist, Roark. Roark goes awol and hunts down Stark. Maybe his life or a loved one's is in danger. Russia sends their top Secret agent, Scarlett Jo, to bring him back to the prison he so rudely escaped from. Meanwhile, Rhody is ordered by Senator Larry Sanders to confiscate Stark's older model armors. He then cobbles the best parts from each stage and upgrades them with conventional weapons to defy Senator Sanders and help Tony defeat Roark and...who else? Wasn't there another villian? Hammer? Naw, Tony would just call the Justice Department and drop a dime.<p>SPOILER<p>Scarlett Jo is seduced by Tony and shows up too late to save him but makes up for it by getting naked.

    just busting your chops ;) i write like a turd as well. But talking about box office, you have to take into account marketing, the director's name, the actors in it. You have to take all that in, in order to asses if the box office numbers have anything to do with it being or not a good film. Anticipation is another thing, the advertising campaign. Something the Iron Man films lack, something beautiful like the TDK guerrilla stuff.

    Is the movie going to be any good or...? Sorry, I keep having to wade through all the charred corpses of flame war victims to find out. If the producers of this film use their same formula and make things Stark-centric, I am not going to cry. If they neglect to make this a challenge for Stark a la Demon in a Bottle, I'll be sorely disappointed.

    by Stalkeye

    Rourke looks out of place as Whiplash who isn't even one of the best villians in Ironman's Rogue gallery. Fuck, still no Mandarin or even Crimson Dynamo? Chedale is a good actor, but not convincing as Rhodes, Howard actually pulled it off especially during the scenes between him and RDJ.Why not cast Micheal Jai White instead? it won't cost that much to say the least. Scarjo as Widow? Ok, she's eye candy at least and WTF is that talentless Cosplayer doing in the sequel? G4's Olivia Munn Jon Fav must be returning the favor as the network helped to big the Movie up.(hyping the first film.)Hopefully it's just a brief cameo as she can't act or really host for shit.However she looks hawt in that Baroness getup.<p>I just hope the sequel will do just as good as the first if not better. It won't suck like Tranny 2 at least.

    if war machine is in it

    by lex romero

    then whiplash must get some super powered up armour version of himself later in the film. I can't imagine the whiplash we've seen so far is going to be a huge threat that it needs to armoured dudes. Maybe thats' where the crimson dynamo confusion is coming in? Maybe his later armour is similar to that? <br><br> Also I still want a manderin on screen. Just make the 10 rings be super advanced technology (i believe the comics retconned them to be alien tech, rather than magic) and there you go, sorted. Watching iron man fight a dude with no armour, but is super powered, would actually look really awesome imo.

    Rourke isn't playing BLACKlash (a more interesting character IMO) and not WHIPlash. Your summary is exactly as I suspect. Makes sense especially given how Rourke's character is cozy with Rockwell's weapons designer.<P>Obviously, liberties have already been taken with the source material. Only this time, perhaps diverting from the source material may work in favor of the film instead of simply fueling a filmmaker in their attempt to put their personal mark on a known property.
