Iron Man 2 gets even more star-studded
The first Iron Man movie takes my top spot as the best superhero movie so far (The Dark Knight’s a crime drama in my book) and with Jon Favreau helming the sequel, I can only expect that it will be a blast like the first one.
Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his role as Tony Stark – probably the best portrayal of a comic book character ever – but he will be joined by a more stellar cast this time around that one can only hope that no one tries to one-up the others.
Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke are cast as villains (no details on exactly who yet) and foxy (skanky?) Scarlett Johansson will be squeezed into some tight leather as Black Widow (I always wanted a brunette for this role though). Bad mo-fo Samuel L. Jackson will appear again as Nick Fury.
Perhaps one of the biggest geek-service additions to the cast will be none other than current Playboy cover model (in which she doesn’t appear nude) – Olivia Munn. It’s not revealed yet on her role but we can only hope that the role requires skin-tight costumes or even minimal coverage. ‘Cause she’s got one of the best bikini bodies out there. Proof? Check out the video below. Hehe…
