    I can't imagine that Terrence Howard made more than Robert Downey Jr. for Iron Man.

    I'm sure Downey Jr. got a nice bonus on the back-end though. I hope Jeff Bridges did too, as I thought he did a great job.

    Emily Blunt rumored for 'Iron Man 2'

    Favreau focuses on finding femme fatale

    By Michael Fleming
    Variety

    With Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell negotiating to play two key villains in "Iron Man 2," Marvel Entertainment and director Jon Favreau are now focusing on casting another nemesis for Robert Downey Jr.'s: the femme fatale Black Widow.

    Emily Blunt has emerged as the frontrunner to play the role of Natasha Romanoff in the "Iron Man" sequel. She's a Soviet super spy who doubles as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume that is enhanced by high-tech weaponry.

    Blunt, whose recent credits include "The Devil wears Prada," "The Jane Austen Book Club" and "Charlie Wilson's War," will get a profile boost when she stars with Benicio Del Toro in the Joe Johnston-directed "The Wolf Man" for Universal.

    Marvel would not comment on the Black Widow casting. The Justin Theroux-scripted "Iron Man 2" will begin production this spring for release by Paramount in summer 2010.

    Blunt, Segel added to 'Travels'

    Duo join Jack Black in Letterman-directed film

    Variety

    Twentieth Century Fox is negotiating with Emily Blunt and Jason Segel to join Jack Black in "Gulliver's Travels," the Rob Letterman-directed reimagining of the classic Jonathan Swift tale.

    John Davis and Ben Cooley are producing.

    Blunt had already been offered the role of Black Widow in "Iron Man 2," but that may not be an option because of "Gulliver's Travels." Fox holds an option on the actress that was part of her deal when she co-starred in "The Devil Wears Prada,"and the studio may invoke it to see that she takes part in the giant tale.

    While Blunt's reps are still trying to work out scheduling so she can play both roles, it will be an uphill battle because of scheduling overlap. "Gulliver's Travels" will shoot in the U.K. in late March; "Iron Man 2" is expected to begin lensing in early April in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

    Earlier this week it seemed that Marvel Entertainment would have to go back to the drawing board to find an actress to play Natasha Romanoff, the Soviet superspy who moonlights as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume enhanced by high-tech weaponry. But by late Thursday, it looked like Fox and Blunt's reps were feeling more optimistic that she could do both projects.

    Favreau commented that he wanted to use that character but just couldn't make him fit into "realistic" the scheme of things.

    'Iron Man 2':
    Scarlett Johansson to replace Emily Blunt as Black Widow?

    Feb 13, 2009, 07:30 PM |
    by Nicole Sperling
    ew.com


    Because Emily Blunt's commitment to Twentieth Century Fox and the studio's upcoming Gulliver's Travels movie may prohibit her from costarring in Iron Man 2, Marvel is in discussions with other actresses, most significantly Scarlett Johansson, to take her place, EW has learned exclusively. Marvel will not confirm, but sources around Hollywood say Johansson has indeed met with the filmmakers and is interested in taking the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow. Blunt's reps are still trying to make both projects work, but Gulliver's is further along, with a start date of April 15. Iron Man 2 still doesn't have a shooting script and a start date has not yet been determined.

    Iron Man's armor from the inside out

    EXCLUSIVE

    Check out this fun Flash program sent over by the folks at Industrial Light & Magic. They're in a tough Oscars race for effects this year ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Dark Knight" are also up in the category), but even if they don't win the trophy they say there was something special about working on "Iron Man."

    The storied shop doesn't traditionally "audition" for jobs, but they did work up spec presentations for "Iron Man" because there were so many in-house fans of the armored Avenger and such enthusiasm for Jon Favreau's plans to bring the hero to the screen.

    "This one was special for us all the way through," says ILM's Bruce Holcomb, the model supervisor on the film. "There's a lot of love for 'Iron Man' and what was accomplished ... and what will be accomplished." "Iron Man 2" is due in theaters in 2010.

    Then there is comeback kid Mickey Rourke, who is poised to follow his Golden Globe-winning performance in "The Wrestler" with an offer to play the main villain in "Iron Man 2" — but at a lowball opening offer of $250,000 from Marvel; Marvel’s tactics have already prompted Samuel L. Jackson to swear off playing Nick Fury because of a similarly low offer.

    'Iron Man' DVD sales lift Marvel

    Company tops fourth-quarter profit forecasts

    Marvel Entertainment Inc. topped Wall Street projections with its fourth-quarter results Tuesday, saying net income more than doubled on strong DVD sales of the film "Iron Man."

    The company reported a profit of $63 million, or 80 cents per share, compared with $27.6 million, or 35 cents per share, a year earlier.

    Analysts were looking for 70 cents per share, according to a Thomson Reuters poll.

    Quarterly sales beat expectations as well, climbing to $224.3 million from $109.3 million a year ago, compared with the average forecast of $213.5 million.

    In a statement, Marvel Chairman Morton Handel attributed better-than-expected results to the company's strategy of producing its own films.
    Marvel said its movie business contributed $135.5 million in revenue, mainly from "Iron Man" DVD sales.

    Full-year results were boosted by the theatrical release of Marvel's first two feature films, "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk."

    Earnings for 2008 grew 47 percent to $205.5 million, or $2.61 per share, compared with $139.8 million, or $1.70 per share, in 2007. Analysts expected a profit of $2.55 per share.

    Looks like Samuel L. Jackson will be part of Iron Man 2, as well as a bunch of other movies:

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Samuel L. Jackson is Marvel's man.

    The actor, who just weeks ago was seemingly on the outs with the studio over reprising his role as Nick Fury, agent of spy outfit S.H.I.E.L.D., in the "Iron Man" sequel, has signed an unprecedented nine-picture deal to play the character in a series of Marvel movies.

    In addition to " Iron Man 2 ," scheduled for release next year, the movies include "Thor," " Captain America ," " The Avengers " and its sequels. Also on the table is the possibility of starring in a "S.H.I.E.L.D." movie, which is in development

    I wonder if he'll have "BMF" written on the inside of his eye-patch? Looking forward to Iron Man 2.
