Entertainment Tonight aired behind-the-scenes footage from Iron Man 2 yesterday on its program. The segment features interviews with Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson talking about how they prepared physically for their roles.
Downey talked about what was happening in the film during the racing car scenes. "Tony Stark has come to Monaco, supposedly to observe the race, but then, as it happens, he is racing in it. This is where he meets his nemesis, and this big kind of action sequence unfolds on the track," the actor explained. "This is probably about my favorite thing in the world to do professionally because you get the free adrenaline rush and it's all safe."

The story that Ain't It Cool News is reporting today is that Marvel Studios, Paramount Pictures and Marvel's new owners at Disney are thinking very long and hard about converting Iron Man 2 into a digital 3-D format. AICN's Harry Knowles states that his source is "very solid" and that a one minute demo of IM2 footage in 3-D exists right now so the execs can drool over it and tell them that it's a sound investment to convert the film to the third dimension.- Ain't It Cool News.

A new photo showing Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer popped up at Fantasy.fr first along with conceptual artwork showing Whiplash's costume. It's interesting to note the different look between this early idea of Whiplash's look versus the final design seen in the photo showing Mickey Rourke at the race track.- Fantasy.fr.

When IGN visited the set Tony Stark's lab for Iron Man 2 they saw things that most people wouldn't notice. Thankfully the IGN reporter's comic book radar detection was in the on position and they caught the following details scattered about Tony's lab:
- a computer screen showing a diagram of Captain America's shield.
- boxes marked "Project Pegasus", the same name of the secret superhero facility seen in the pages of Marvel comic books.
- the Mark II Iron Man armor was noticably absent from its display case.
IGN also has its description of a scene showing the Stark Expo, a World's Fair-like event that Tony's father held in 1973 and how it plays an important part of Iron Man 2's storyline.

Yesterday at the 2009 Comic-Con Iron Man 2 panel director Jon Favreau and stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell came to say hello to 6,000 screaming fans. Many outlets that attended the standing-room only event say that what transpired in that room was among the highlights of this year's con. The biggest event was the surprise unveil of a sizzle reel of selected scenes from the upcoming sequel that brought the house down. In all the reel was shown three times and received a standing ovation from the crowd.
The Iron Man 2 footage contained the public's first look at the War Machine armor, the modified Iron Man Mark II suit that James Rhodes will wear at some point in the film. In the scene previewed at the con, Rhodes (played by Cheadle) is shown a selection of weapons by Justin Hammer (Rockwell). After Rockwell asks him which one he wants, Rhodey replies, "All of them." The next image seen is of the War Machine armor in operation, blasting away with all of its weaponry.
Other scenes in the reel included a look at Mickey Rourke's Whiplash in attack mode, his electric tendrils cascading deadly energy at a downed Tony Stark at the race track; Rhodes taking the stand at senate hearings concerning the Iron Man armor; Downey's Stark defending the position that he should be the sole owner of the Iron Man technology and Garry Shandling's senator getting angry at Stark refusing to concede his position; and SHIELD commander Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) asking the armored Tony Stark to please get out of the donut sign affixed to the top of a donut shop.
As per Comic-Con policy no material from the movie can be recorded but video of the panel has gone up on YouTube such as this three-part collection uploaded by BucketReviews:
