‘Iron Man 2’ Wraps Principal Photography

After a 71-day shoot, a wrap has been called on a highly anticipated sequel. According to Marvel.com, Iron Man 2 wrapped principal photography on July 18. The site spoke with producer and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige about the production.

"Shooting Iron Man 2 was a fantastic experience and we couldn't be happier. Although there were many challenges in making this film, having Jon Favreau, Robert Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow and almost the entire crew from the first film back on board, allowed us to hit the ground running as everyone was instantly familiar with each other from day one," Feige told the site. "This dynamic allowed us to get done what we needed on a day to day basis and was a big factor in why we finished slightly ahead of schedule."

Iron Man 2 was released May 7th, 2010.

    And Yeah cawalat, Unit 1 is actors, Unit 2 is reshoots, stunt shots, and effects.

      I don't think waiting between movies or "taking the time" necessarily makes them better. There is an appropriate window of production for any movie, and Marvel is working with people who understand that.

        I don't get it, if they are done... Why are they releasing Iron Man 2, May 2010?

        Is it the CG stuff that isn't ready?

          Yeah I'm also confident in this film as well. Iron Man to me was the best Marvel movie to date, and I do like almost all Marvel movies.

            comrade well said superbowl seems like a good time for a full length trailer, teaser should arrive with Avatar or so in december.........Marvel who controls these movies unlike Sony or Fox, they want to pick up the pace so they can throw in Thor, Capt America, Antman (if at all) and the Avengers, obviously if they took the time on this stuff, we looking at 2020 for avengers or ironman 3

                I still have high hopes and virtually no fears for this film. And that's f*cking bold for me. I have a feeling we'll know exactly what to expect from this movie by next Super Bowl.

                      I think this will be good. After all, the same team who made "Iron Man" so awesome is back for this installment, along with some new faces, of course. Jon Favreau is a hell of a director.

                          it does seem to short john favreau wanted to do this movie in 3 years originally but marvel pressure him into doing it 2 years once he gets a few more movies under his belt he will be able to get 3 studios to wait for him like nolan and michael bay

                            I'm really worried about this sequel.

                            Still nothing exciting from it.

                                  I expect between 115 and 145 minute runtime.
