With casting rumors running wild in recent weeks for “Iron Man 2,” details about the future summer 2010 tent pole have been hard to pin down – even for franchise star Gwyneth Paltrow.
Gwyneth, who played Tony Starks’ personal assistant – and potential love interest – Pepper Potts, in the first film, told MTV News she hasn’t seen a script yet.
“They haven’t even given me a script yet,” Gwyneth said at the premiere of her latest film, “Two Lovers.”
“They don’t tell me anything. I could be, like, a costume assistant in it. I know nothing.”
But as production approaches, she has faith in the film.
“[Director] Jon Favreau said it would be good, so I believe him,” she added.
The latest rumors have placed Mickey Rourke and Emily Blunt as villains in the superhero sequel, though there’s been no official word on their casting. While Emily is reportedly up for the role of Russian spy the Black Widow, another star has been eying the part, as well.
“Dollhouse” star Eliza Dushku told Howard Stern that she’d be “perfect” for the role in an appearance on his radio show on Thursday morning.
“I just learned Russian because I had to play a Russian girl in ‘Dollhouse,’ she said. “I’m so perfect for the Black Widow character.”
