Kate Mara Hints at Her Iron Man 2 Role
01.26.10 by Ryan
News that actress Kate Mara had joined the cast of Iron Man 2 arrived last April. However, details of what role she was to play remained sketchy. Rumors persisted that she was playing a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative alongside Samuel L. Jackson, while IMDb has the actress playing Iron Man's friend and former girlfriend Bethany Cabe.
Mara offered Movieline a few details about her role, namely that she is "not playing" Cabe.
I am in Iron Man 2. I'm only in one scene, though, and it's not Bethany Cabe. I think Bethany Cabe in the comic book has red hair and they were like, well, Kate must be playing her. Just check it out. I did it because they were like, "Do you want to work with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau?" I was like, "I'll say one word and I'm fine!" So there you go.
In a conversation with MTV, Mara revealed that her scene does involve both Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Favreau as Happy Hogan. When she was pressed to reveal whether her role had anything to do with law enforcement, Mara remained mysterious.
It's something like that.
