ET Premieres Behind-the-Scenes Footage from Iron Man 2

I really hate Entertainment Tonight. I'm sorry if I burst anyone's bubble by saying that, but really, they just suck. ET Online has debuted a first look at a "set visit" for Iron Man 2. Don't expect much. Although it's a full five minutes long, this features nothing more than a few bland questions and answers, some behind-the-scenes footage so bad you can't even see what's going on, and maybe a glimpse or two of actual footage from the movie. Sure it looks cool and some of the stunts you see Black Widow doing (for a half of a second) look pretty awesome, but that's about it. I'm excited for Iron Man 2, sure, but let's see some actual footage!
Iron Man 2 takes place "six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man" at the end of the first movie. Jon Favreau is directing again from a script written by actor-turned-screenwriter Justin Theroux. Iron Man 2 stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, and Don Cheadle as Rhodey. We're not sure when we'll see an actual trailer, especially since Favreau brought footage to Comic-Con, but we hope it's much soon than later. Paramount is bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters on May 7th next summer.
