Olivia Munn Got Screwed by Marvel in Iron Man 2 Movie
The Staff at IGN got to see the Premiere of Iron Man 2. They have spilled the beans about what Olivia Munn's role in the movie is. And you won't like it one bit.
April 27, 2010 - Speculation has raged online for months now over who G4 host Olivia Munn plays in Iron Man 2. Now that we've seen the film, we can set the record straight, once and for all. We'd label this report a spoiler, but you can't spoil what was never true to begin with. So here goes:
Rumor had it that Munn would be appearing as one of the Avengers, namely as either Scarlet Witch or Wasp. Alas, Munn is not an Avenger in Iron Man 2.
As with L.A. industry notables TV/film reporter Zorianna Kit and news anchor Hal Fishman in Spider-Man 3, Munn appears in the film as ... wait for it ... a TV personality. She plays an on-air correspondent reporting from an event that Tony Stark attends.
Casting Olivia Munn for Iron Man 2 was a really cool move that had gfest really excited. But then Marvel crapped all over our dreams and just made her a stupid TV reporter. I mean that really sucks. And why did Marvel feel the need to tease us into thinking it might be something cool? Was it really going to spoil the plot of Iron Man 2 to tell us she was going to be a reporter instead of having us wonder what superhero she was going to play.
In protest, gfest is considering boycotting Iron Man 2. You know, for opening weekend only. I mean we're still going to see the movie, let's not get crazy.
