Entertainment Tonight posted a five minute video of their visit to the set of Iron Man 2 along with interviews with the cast.
The set visit took place during the filming of the scene of Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) first meeting with Whiplash (Mickey Rourke). Director Jon Favreu talks about Downey’s value to the franchise:
"Robert’s the soul of the franchise," says Jon, who also returns
onscreen as Tony’s driver, Happy Hogan. "Every day we come to the set
we try to discover new ways to make the story interesting and
Female stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlet Johansson also talked about getting in shape for their respective roles as Pepper Potts and Black Widow:
Gwyneth assures us that, "Pepper’s evolving a little bit in her look
— she is still rocking all the big high heels," and shares her health
regimen: "What I have discovered recently, which has been a really
important thing, is doing cleansing. I can’t believe that I can put on
a bathing suit or wear these costumes that are tiny and short and feel
good about myself. But it takes a lot of effort, you know?"
And Scarlett is definitely turning heads with her Black Widow
look: "I definitely adopted a really healthy lifestyle, did a lot of
strength training and just core work and all of that stuff," she says.
"My character comes on the scene and she is sort of the new kid at
school with the cool clothes and the fancy backpack and all that stuff.
There is a little bit of the ‘who is that?’ coming into this circle."
Robert Downey Jr. also remarked on the real life unlikelyhood of the love triangle between Stark, Potts, and the Black Widow:
"Like I would ever have Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson fighting over me — all I know is that Susan Downey gets to watch it all at the monitor. … She says it’s okay."
"He loves it; it’s his favorite thing," laughs Gwyneth. "When Scarlett and I are both on set it’s like his favorite day."
