Robert Downey Jr. Talks 'Iron Man 2'

Comic book geeks have been given hope this Friday-Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark (A.K.A "Iron Man") in the upcoming Iron Man 2, which is set to release May 7, 2010. Mr. Downey Jr. recently talked to Entertainment Tonight about Iron Man 2. 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."

As for co-star Scarlett Johansson, who plays the femme fatale Black Widow in the sequel, Robert says, "We've been rehearsing and she's in insane shape. She's getting lean and mean."

Iron Man 2 also stars Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Jon Favreau and Samuel L. Jackson. Filming stars on Monday. Get excited.
