MSN Movies France has an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette for Iron Man 2. It looks awesome. What a shock. Specifically, the featurette focuses on the “Monaco Sequence” which is where Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) comes to a formula one racetrack and really ruins Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) day. Scarlett Johansson says the scene is “off the hook,” which is a phrase we’re all still using in 2010. I think Johansson knows she’s so hot she could say any dated catchphrase and still get away with it. I look forward to her describe her role as Black Widow as “Getting jiggy with it.”
The featurette does feature the standard enthusiasm of the project (one of these days I would love to see an actor or director look really dejected and mutter, “I really don’t want to be here.”), but there’s one line from director Jon Favreau that’s worth quoting: “I’m the biggest fan of Iron Man, and the audience is waiting to see what we do next. And I will not let them down.” We know you won’t Mr. Favreau and that’s why we’re all excited out of minds to see this movie.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. Iron Man 2 hits theaters on May 7th.
