After watching the ET exclusive the scope of the sequel is apparent. Iron Man 2 is bigger than ever. The action is going to be a lot more edgy. The characters are going to transform quite a bit. The action set pieces will be a lot more this time. Unlike the previous one where there was only one nemesis Robert Downey Jr had to face.
Sam Rockwell said that it was great fun and he had a good time during the shoot. He also told the experience he had with working with co stars like Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johannson and Rober Downey Jr was really exhilarating. He described it like a passing the ball between Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.
He was also asked about what is different this time round and he said “It’s a bigger scope. There’s a lot more action and fighting. More characters. It’s bigger and there’s a lot more to get your head around, so it’s a tougher job for [Jon] Favreau and Justin Theroux, who wrote it.”
He also talked about his character in the film “He’s a rival of Tony’s – they are competitors in the weapons industry. I team up with Mickey Rourke and we decide we want to take him down and take down the Stark legacy. He’s sort of like a cousin of the Charlie’s Angels character I played. The smarmy cousin. But it’s Mickey – he does the fighting and the kicking ass in the film.”
So the franchise will certainly have some really mysterious turns. So expect the unexpected.
