#SDCC: Iron Man 2
Face front, true believers, because Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau, along with actors Robert Downey, Jr. (Tony Stark), Scarlett Johanssen (Black Widow), Don Cheadle (James “Rhodey” Rhodes), and Sam Rockwell (Justin Hammer), were on hand to screen some previously-unseen footage at SDCC tonight. Newsarama was there, and thanks to the magic of liveblogging, we have some new tidbits for you:
- Filming wrapped last week, but it’ll still be a year before it’s ready for theaters.
- In case there was any doubt, War Machine makes an appearance in the footage they showed.
- There was nothing to indicate the presence of an alcoholism subplot. At least, not yet.
- Bob Layton, old-school Iron Man comics scribe, was brought on stage to answer a question about his involvement–which was minimal, save for a visit to the set and his blessing on the project, apparently.
The majority of the panel was Q&A, so if Don Cheadle dodging questions about Meteor Man floats your boat, go take a look.
