Iron Man 2 - In Theaters April 30, 2010


"Iron Man 2" - "Iron Man 2" director Jon Favreau planned Iron Man as a trilogy - even before the first "Iron Man" hit movie theaters - and tried signing on all the original actors.

The day following the "Iron Man" $200 million + worldwide opening weekend, Marvel Entertainment announced a release date of April 30, 2010, for "Iron Man 2."

Jon Favreau feels depicting "Iron Man's" nemesis, the Mandarin, who was created as a metaphor for communism, will be challenging, as he finds the character dated. He also wants to streamline the effort it takes for Stark to put on his armor, considering the "assembly line" effort he makes in the first "Iron Man" film. Terrence Howard (who on October 13, 2008, was replaced by Don Cheadle in "Iron Man 2") said he would like to follow the slow arc of the comics with Rhodes temporarily becoming "Iron Man" while Stark succumbs to alcohol, joking, "I don't want to introduce War Machine too early for my own monetary benefit."

Jon Favreau believes the sequel, "Iron Man 2," will allow a latitude in tone, and explore darker story elements such as alcoholism, which he intentionally set aside from the first film. Robert Downey Jr. noted "the next one is about what do you do with the rest of your life once you've completely changed. I think the drinking and all that stuff would be a good way to confront his age, to confront his doubts, to confront the fact that maybe Pepper gets a boyfriend."
