A number of sites had the opportunity to visit the Iron Man 2 set a few weeks back (no, we didn’t, but we’ve worked all that out with Paramount who are great to deal with) and today they unleashed the details online. Following the Iron Man 2 presentation at Comic-Con, we thought it would be a good time to bring folks up to speed on the latest and greatest with the film.

Unfortunately I missed the Avatar panel at Comic-Con, where they debuted 20 minutes of 3D footage from the film, but based on the audience reaction to Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr (Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle were also present), I’d say the Iron Man 2 panel may have been the big hit of the event (Kick-Ass had a heck of a reception as well, though).

The following is based on reports from MTV, JoBlo and Latino Review.

First, you might be interested in meeting Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark. For a while rumors circulated that Tim Robbins might play the character, but in the end they went with someone who looks more like Gerard Sanders, who appeared in still images in the first film as Tony’s father. Why they didn’t go with that actor I don’t know, but in any case the gentleman below on the right is John Slattery and visually he fits the bill. Check out the previous Howard Stark and the new one below:

And of course we have Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow:

Mickey Rourke as Whiplash:

Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes:

On to highlights from the set visit (which you may consider a bit spoilerish as they do reveal some overall plot elements)…

  1. I am so geek for this… the next 10 months cant come fast enough

  2. John Slattery from Mad Men?

  3. I hope it’s longer, but not longer in a way that it drags on like the ending of TDK. I always thought Iron Man needed to be longer because that last fight was pretty lackluster, and at the same time felt TDK should be shorter because that ending was pretty poorly paced and dragged on and on. LOL, guess I will never be satisfied, lol.

  4. @ Ken J. Who understands you man? 😀 Haha..

  5. This movie is gonna be so kick ass, Jon Favreau is the freakin man.

  6. Hey! Its the guy from Desperate Housewives :) Hopefully it shows him build Cap’s shield :)

  7. I’m told that if you go back to the first movie you can see that Stark has at least a fragment of Cap’s original shield from his WWII origin. I suspect though that anything to do with Cap will be done after the credits or in the CA movie. Don’t expect it here.

    Have they settled on even a concept for that movie yet?

  8. But thank goodness that open shirt wearing wannabe hip Tim Robbins won’t be in this movie, that would have made it somewhat hard to watch for me lol.

  9. were has the ex cornal gone he was a important part 2 the movie get him back
