Jon Favreau has just given an update on "Iron Man 2". On Sunday, November 15, the helmer took it to his Twitter page to announce that the film is starting to enter its final phase. "Digital animated shots starting to come in. The movie is beginning to take on it's final look," he wrote.
Previously, Favreau spilled a detail of the "Iron Man" sequel when talking about the inclusion of War Machine in the film. "Then we have Don Cheadle. We've upped Rhodey's significance in the film and now I think the cat's out of the bag about War Machine, so he's in that suit. How does he become War Machine? What's his relationship to Iron Man?" he stated.
Later, Sam Rockwell, who will be seen as Justin Hammer in the second movie, also addressed the War Machine. "Don and I, we're working together. He works with me in spite of some of my personality flaws," he said on the relationship between his Tony Stark's rival character and Cheadle's Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes. "Don's character, Rhodey, needs to work with me. He has no choice. So we team up and we build this fabulous War Machine."
In "Iron Man 2", Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow are back to reprise their roles as Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. Joining the star-studded cast ensemble are Mickey Rourke, Samuel L. Jackson, and Scarlett Johansson. Penned by Justin Theroux, the film eyes a May 7, 2010 release date in the U.S.
