Iron Man 2 at Comic Con

Posted in

At San Diego Comic Con Jon Favreau gave fans a peek at 2 minutes of previously unseen footage for the 2010 Iron Man 2. SOME SPOILERS AHEAD

It seems like a major subplot in this movie will be Nick Fury pushing to join the Avengers. Stark is reluctant. Later in the movie the suit is labeled as a weapon and congress demands its turnover to the government. The reply is:

When the senator demanded Tony turn over the Iron Man to the people of
the United States, Stark reiterated, "I am Iron Man. The suit and I are
one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself which
is tantamount to indentured servitude or prostitution depending on what
state you're in."

Depending on your point of view this is either Stark being slightly crazy or Stark being objectivist and refusing to prostitute the work of this mind to the people as a whole. Of course on certain blogs those two options are the same thing.

Also mentioned is that Branagh is directing the upcoming Thor flick. I was never much of a Thor fan but I am a big Branagh fan, so that flick is back on the list.

MTV has more substantial coverage of the clip as well as some of the Q and A session here.
