Entertainment Tonight spoke with Robert Downey Jr., and the actor offered some thoughts on Iron Man 2, including the addition of actress Scarlett Johansson, who’ll be playing Black Widow: “We’ve been rehearsing and she’s in insane shape. She’s getting lean and mean.” Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
“The film is almost entirely about character, and yet we still have twice as much action as we did last time, so it’s going to be nuts,” Robert tells our own Thea Andrews of the super sequel, set to start filming Monday. “Essentially ‘Iron Man 2′ is about looking behind the armor, or the armature, of a superhero. It’s one thing to say you’re Iron Man, it’s another thing to be fully ready to do that.”
Iron Man 2 hits theaters on May 7, 2010.
