Fanboy Fix: 'Iron Man 2', 'Predators' and 'The Avengers'


Iron Man 2

Entertainment Tonight appears to be milking their Iron Man 2 set visit for all it's worth, dumping not one, not two, but three videos online – featuring interviews with practically the entire cast (Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Jon Favreau) and footage of Mickey Rourke's villainous Whiplash in action on a racetrack, which looks to be the film's first big action sequence.
The third video was just released today, and it centers on Mickey Rourke's Whiplash character. Not only do you get to watch him feverishly try to whip through a car that has him pressed up against a fence, but you get to watch people like Gwyneth Paltrow call the aging tattooed actor "trippy and sweet". Watch the video right over here...
With a new Predators (directed by Nimrod Antel and produced by Robert Rodriguez) movie gearing up for production, a review of the film's script has popped up over on Latino Review – where they call it "a 90-page kick-ass, sci-fi movie worthy of the original" that's "bloody" and "hard-R". In addition to the script review, word has it that Rodriguez regular (and cult favorite) Danny Trejo will be joining the film, too.
Without spoiling too much, the central storyline looks to focus on several of earth's greatest warriors who are kidnapped from their homes and dropped on the Predators' home planet where they instantly become part of a brutal game of hunter vs. the hunted. Based on what I've seen, it sounds like a pretty cool reversal of the original film (which had a Predator on Earth being hunted by humans). Head over to LR for all the spoiler-ish details.
The Avengers
With all the Marvel superhero movies coming down the pipeline, some us forget about Edward Norton and The Incredible Hulk. Will either Norton or the Hulk (or both) be back for a sequel before The Avengers hits theaters? Will they be a part of The Avengers film, or pop up in another film, like, say, Iron Man 2?
Well good luck getting any of that info. out of Norton himself, as MTV recently interrogated the actor on all things Marvel, and all they got out of him was the following: "It's purely a function of time," Norton explained. "It's always about just working things out on the schedule. I tend to keep my head in the thing I'm doing and I don't speculate or worry too much about what two or three blocks down the thing is going to be."
In other words: "Even if I knew what was going to happen, there's no way I'd be telling you."
