Iron Man fans (isn't that everyone?) can now breathe a sigh of relief, as Marvel have come to their senses and secured director Jon Favreau's return for the sequel. Rumours abounded for the last couple of months that they weren't going to bring him back, causing much fan concern after his deft handling of the first movie.

The only thing we have to worry about now is the tight release schedule of early 2010...they'd better get cracking.

Good stuff. Hopefully the second one will be able to live up to the first one's awesomeness. wink

Ugh... Well maybe it will work. It did with Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight.

What sucks about this is the studio tried to played like Howard held out and Howard says he found out he wasn't going to be in it through a news site that interviewed him...Someone is lying and I wish they would tell the truth.

Scarlet Johansson and Mickey Rourke have joined the cast. Good move, getting Rourke, but I'm really not liking the studio's handling of things though...

Nice! Downey was brilliant as Stark. Looking forward to seeing more of him.
