Olivia Munn Replaces Herself In “Iron Man 2”

Olivia Munn tells Complex Magazine that her involvement in the upcoming “Iron Man” sequel is quite different than even the filmmakers expected, so much so she ended up playing two entirely different characters.

Munn revealed she had to recently reshoot all of her scenes for the film in a completely different role than the one she played during the main shoot last year.

“As they started to edit they realized it was becoming darker than what they’d expected and what my scenes had allowed for. My parts were lighthearted and comedic” says Munn who “would’ve started crying” had her scenes been left on the cutting room floor.

Thankfully director Jon Favreau came in to save the day – “Favreau called and was like, “I’ve got good news and bad news: This is what’s happening in editing but we all really like you.” Marvel and Jon had to add another character from the Marvel universe to keep me included” says Munn who sadly didn’t elaborate on either of her characters.

Meanwhile there’s a new trailer available for the video game tie-in to the movie at MTV UK.
