Possible New Characters for Iron Man 2

Spoiler TV has got a scoop on "Iron Man 2." Is it true or not? Probably not...but it is still enjoyable to read.

SpoilerTV claims filming for "Iron Man 2" will begin in April next year and that the studio is looking for the following: A male lead, 30s, Eastern European, brilliant, gritty; a female lead, 20s, beautiful, speaks several languages fluently and is equally proficient in martial arts; and a 'bruiser', Russian, 20s or 30s, at least 6'2", able to perform own stunts, has the build of a MMA fighter.

According to The Geek Files on this news, "These sound to me - and other comic book fans - like they could be for the characters Crimson Dynamo, Black Widow and Titanium Man. All have come up against billionaire Tony Stark's armoured alter-ego Iron Man in the comic book stories.

In the Marvel comic books, 12 different men have taken the name Crimson Dynamo. The first was Soviet scientist Professor Anton Vanko who created an armoured suit that enabled flight and electrical blasts. He battled Iron Man but then defected and went to work for Stark.

The Soviets sent their top agent, the female super-spy Black Widow, and her partner Boris Turgenev to kill Vanko. Turgenev stole the armour and became the second Crimson Dynamo and Vanko died trying to save Iron Man.

Titanium Man was an alias used by Soviet agent Boris Bullski who used Vanko's technology to create his own armoured suit and battled Iron Man when he was sent to the USA to retrieve the third Crimson Dynamo, Alex Nevsky, who was a protégé of Vanko."

Will these characters be in "Iron Man 2?" We will have to wait and see.
More news to come!Catch ya' later!
