Garry Shandling Says, “Fuck You Mister Stark!”
AZM Ally Kensei Dave and Angry Zen Minion Tyler Anderson pointed me to five minutes of Iron Man 2 footage from Comic Con that leaked over the weekend which you can find here and here. The audio quality is busted, but you get a decent flavor for what’s in store. I must admit that all the still photos of Mickey Rourke as Whiplash have not been enjoyable to look at, but seeing him in action with those electric whips is pretty freaking sweet. And I nearly jumped out of my seat seeing War Machine unleash blinding fury at the end of the clip. Damn straight, Rhodey! Get some!
Oh yeah, and there was some bit with Scarlett Johansson kicking someone.
Expectations are certainly high for this sequel and I think it will deliver. Downey, Jr. is just so perfect as Tony Stark. I’m still a bit sad that Terrence Howard isn’t returning, but I really like Don Cheadle in anything so I look at him as a welcome addition. I expect Rourke to be a bit creepy and gross which totally fits his character. And someday, someone over at Marvel will have the brilliant idea of making a Nick Fury, Mother Fucker of S.H.I.E.L.D. movie so that Samuel L. Jackson will get more than a cameo scene.
