THEY SAY

Now that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has come out of the closet as Iron Man, who knows who is going to pop out of the woodwork to fight him . .

Reports have it that Mickey Rourke plays a tattooed Russian baddie named Ivan who becomes Whiplash - a man with deadly, technologically enhanced coils: "He's considered to be an evil version of Iron Man because he battles the superhero in a nuclear-powered suit of armor."

Sam Rockwell (Moon, Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy) plays Justin Hammer, a multibillionaire businessman and a rival of industrialist Tony Stark.  Scarlett Johansson is sexy superspy Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow (see photo below).

WE SAY

With a U.S. opening weekend of $98.6 million and an estimated global box office take of $200 million within less than a week, it should come as no surprise that Marvel has already started production on Iron Man 2 for a summer 2010 release.

Besides, director Jon Favreau has admitted in interviews that he had the whole Iron Man thing planned out as a trilogy. Rumor has it that the villain in the final movie will be the evil mastermind Mandarin.

Now that Marvel Comics has cut out the middle man by producing their own movies (which makes the $150 million budgeted Iron Man one of the most expensive independently-made movies ever!), it seems that they have gone overboard! Also planned are movie adaptations of other comic book titles such as Thor and The First Avenger: Captain America for 2011 and The Avengers for 2012.

Personally we believe that Marvel may be riding on a wave of over-optimism here. After all, Thor is probably one of the most ridiculous superheroes ever invented and is prime material for high camp. But hey – we didn’t have the second biggest opening for a non-sequel since the original Spider-man, so what do we know?
