Olivia Munn @ “Iron Man 2″ World Premiere in Hollywood

As some of you guys might know, Olivia Munn was supposed to play Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp in “Iron Man 2,” but as of a couple months ago, that’s no longer the case.

Believe it or not, but Olivia was called back into the studios to reshoot all her scenes as a completely different character. She has such a crazy following that producers felt she worth still keeping in the film, so major props to her for that. Here’s what she told Complex Magazine a while back:

“Yeah, but 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. Jon 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. I can’t talk specifics because it’s Iron Man 2! But when they call, you say, “OK, I’m there. What do you need?” You don’t say, “Who is this Marvel? Did you call my agent? Is FIJI Water on set?” Everyone knows who the stars are in this movie. I’m not one of them and I understand the editing process. Some things don’t work out.”

The film hits theaters nationwide on May 7th. Check the “Iron Man 2″ official website for an endless stream of content.

Nah, thank god.

And I think we know different geeks.

No, they're not.

Chances are, those geeks are probably your boss.

^___^

Really?

You're trying trying to tell me that most "real" geeks aren't anti-social loners now?

C'mon. You went to high-school right?

I did.

I like her...

I know she's not the hottest chick out there, but that's fine, at least she seems like she knows how to have fun. And she can be sexy when she wants to.

Sorry Ladies... but personality counts a little. :D

"Who'd want to hang out with a real geek? Real geeks are anti-social and live with their parents until they are 40. "

I love how you make these broad sweeping generalizations that are more based in stereotype than anything.

I'm a real geek and I don't live with my parents. Haven't lived with 'em since I was fifteen. And I'm pretty social. So are a lot of the geeks I know.

Maybe I'll start making broad sweeping generalizations that are based in stereotype.

I love how women complain that guys are all about looks, but when one catches some heat because of her looks, but also because of her personality, the claws come out.

I don't care if she's a geek or not. Who'd want to hang out with a real geek? Real geeks are anti-social and live with their parents until they are 40.

I think she just seems "cool". Not a "geek", but not a vapid airhead either and she has a sense of humor about herself. She kinda has a guy's sense of humor and doesn't seem all prissy self-conscious like more girls are these days.

That being said. . . she's looked better.

She shouldn't do hair up, it brings out the weirdness in her features.

I'm still on her bandwagon but after listening to an interview with her on the Adam Corolla Podcast, I am not sure she really brings that much to the table. She seems pretty mediocre.

She looks better in casual clothes.

Anyways, something about her makes me feel that she's not a genuinely nice person...

I see it the complete opposite - Scarlett looks way hotter than Olivia at this event.

No, she pretends tot be different from the norm. Hell she did non-nude playboy and now she's doing some peta shit. Bitch will do anything for attention. She's not a geek. She's just a devious little fame-whore.

Yeah i've never understood why people like her so much. I think she looks like a dinosaur. She is for sure NOT in my top 10...not even close...

Very attractive and she seems like she'd be fun to be around to boot.

Verdict: Would wife/10

Gorgeous, I love her face, hair and freckles. She doesn't have the best body but it's not bad.

Nice body, bad smile

I...don't see it, man.

I think she'd make an awesome Jenny Walters, though.

She looks better at this event that Scarlett does, which is not as it should be. Did I wake this morning in Bizzaro World?

*disclaimer*

Outfits aside, at their best Scarlett is way hotter than Munn, but both are worthy of the "Hot" lable, albeit for different reasons.

Nice body, but what is her appeal? Why is she like the top 10 of everyone? I don't get it. Don't get me wrong, she's good looking, but SO overrated.

She would've made a good Wasp.

Oh good. She's not going to play Janet Van Dyne.

Whew.

That being said. She looks very nice. That dress compliments her well and her eyes look very pretty.

Those shoes look too small, though. Maybe that's just me.

I'm still Team Haislip, though.

Nice curves and stems.
