Iron Man 2 Wraps Ahead of Schedule

The principle photography for the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 has ended slightly ahead of schedule after 71 days of filming.

Kevin Feige, Producer of Iron Man 2 and President of Marvel Studios gave Marvel.com an interview of what it was like on set.

“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 Marvel.com. “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.”

Of course, we all know by now there’s also a bunch of new A-List actors interacting with the crew from the first film to make Iron Man 2, but according to Feige, it never became a concern.

“Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell and especially Don Cheadle all stepped right in and meshed well with our returning cast,” he said.

Now the next step is to begin on the extensive post-production process, and complete it in time for Iron Man 2‘s May 7, 2010 release date.
