  • melissa

  • Movie Watcher

    @THIS IS ROBERTS MOVIE …: Agree, it’s Rob’s film but Paltrow didn’t want to do this movie. Rob convinced her to do it and she wasn’t the director’s first choice for Pepper Potts. She lucked out when Rachel McAdams turned down the role. This movie would have been a hit regardless of whether Paltrow was in it in or not.

  • Ben

    @THIS IS ROBERTS MOVIE …: Gwyneth Paltry has no bearing on the success of these films. Her role is like Natalie Portman’s in Star Wars — easily interchangeable and played by a wide variety of actresses. She should be kissing Jon Favreau’s ass for giving her this part.

  • Next

    Yes, everyone I know loved Scarlett as Black Widow.

  • rabbit

    I saw it. Good but not as good as the first. Would have liked to have seen the storyline developed more for BW.

  • jingles

    Not bad but it lags in the middle.
    Agree, a lot of actresses could have played GP’s role. SJ’s too.

  • eightball

    @THIS IS ROBERTS MOVIE …: It doesn’t take a genius to figure out a big action film based on a popular Comic franchise will probably be a hit.

  • oh my

    Sam Rockwell was fantastic!

  • pr guy

    @Ben: RDJ’s too. It resurrected her career.

  • Julie

    Yes i watched it in France!!So great, i love it!!Can’t wait for Iron man 3!!!

  • Bigz

    The guys were great. Gwyneth sleep walked through her role. Scarlett can’t act but she was good eye candy.

  • asfd

    Mickey is an excellent villain.
    The women looked hot although G.P. could pass for Scarlett’s mother.

  • franknbeans

    Fun but clichéd.

  • yes!

    Scarlett kicked ass!

  • Lindsay’s Tatas

    Yes, Johansson in a cat suit will put butts in cinemas.

  • meh

    my mom likes the movie. enough said

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..

    @Movie Watcher: ..huh?! i believe Paltrow was the first choice, Favreau called her. and before even filming 1 she signed a multi film deal.. so she had no choice but to film 2, and 3, and whatever other movies in the genre that Marvel wants. so you saying
    Robert or ANYONE else had to talk her into returning is fcuking ridiculous, and completely stupid cause you’re obviously typing out your ass. ahahahahahahahahaaa..
    …anyways.. every fanboy on every comicbookmovie site is saying the same thing.. ‘good movie, not really better than iron man 1. and definitely not better than The Dark Knight.
    …i bought my tickets on money, so i’ve been waiting all week to see it, and sat cant come any faster. i even had to force myself not to watch it online! hahahahahahaha..

  • Comic Con

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..: You’re wrong. It’s very common knowledge that Paltrow was not the first choice to be Pepper Potts. I’ve followed the casting from day one and anyone who has knows Rachel McAdams turned down the part. Just like they know Emily Blunt was the first choice to play Black Widow. Paltrow has also given interviews where she’s talked about how Downey convinced her to take the part and asked her if she wanted to make a movie that people would actually go see. Google it. It’s been documented in numerous interviews. Most of the cast signed a multi-film deal, that’s common btw and usually to the advantage of the studio when negotiating terms.
