IRON MAN 2: Alternate Costume Designs For Black Widow And War Machine's MCU Debut Are Simply Awesome

Iron Man 2 hit theaters in 2010 and while it was followed by THOR and Captain America: The First Avenger, the movie's main focus was to set up The Avengers. As a result, it drew the ire of many fans as it was a very busy movie which attempted to juggle a lot of balls. It dropped some too, particularly on the "Demon in the Bottle" arc but successfully introduced both War Machine and Black Widow. 

Now, we're taking a look at some concept art from the jam-packed sequel which puts the spotlight on both of those heroes and how differently they could have looked. The designs for War Machine's armour are very interesting (and comic book faithful), while director Jon Favreau clearly considered going even further with Black Widow's S.H.I.E.L.D. connections by making her a full-on Agent.

@JoeMomma29 - IM2 had so much potential but became extremely safe :/. i still enjoy it more than im3 tho .......
JoeMomma29 - 6/21/2018, 10:19 AM
@knocturnalzen10 - I will agree that IM2 is more enjoyable than IM3. Though I do not want this to get into a pissing match with some MCU die hards.
knocturnalzen10 - 6/21/2018, 10:32 AM
@JoeMomma29 - true lol but i'm fine with it because i'm a hardcore IM fan so there's nothing people can tell me about a film adopting 3 arcs in one and tainting his biggest villain :/

@JoeMomma29 - Not getting into a pissing match, but I'll take 3 over 2, although both were BIG letdowns after how great the first was.

@JoeMomma29 - for someone who always complains about people bashing gal for Wonder Woman and not being big enough you would think you would keep those type of comments to yourself

I personally liked Black Widow's final look in IronMan 2. So hot. I want one. :D
ImmovableForce - 6/21/2018, 10:37 AM
Technically I always felt she was miscast. But, dayum, she does look good.
