Trivia

When Marvel first hired Samuel L. Jackson to play as Nick Fury in Iron Man 1 and 2, they wanted to keep it very secret. They actually drove Samuel's car onto the middle of the set and they surrounded it with dressing trailers so that no one could see Samuel get out of the car and get into character until the first Iron Man (2008) was released in theaters.

Something's missing
30 April 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

There's RDJ and his immeasurable charisma, there's Rockwell and Rourke rocking their lines, there's classy Paltrow and shallow ScarJo (bait for the horny nerds), there's good action.. and yet, something's missing. Don't get me wrong: this movie is FUN, from beginning to end. Too much talking? No way. Not enough action? Maybe, but there's plenty (2 fights, 1 'friend ruckus'). But the thread that ties it all together don't seem to be that strong (I blame it on Theroux). Anyway, go see it, you won't regret. One more thing: don't believe people telling that this movie talks way too much about the Avengers: a few bits here and there is not too much. And stay for the after-credits scene.
