Iron Man 2

Entertainment Weekly definitely got the big scoop on Iron Man 2 this week! Not only did they debut that badass cover shot and our first look at Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, but hidden deep inside the mag are a few more shots from the movie, including our first official look at Don Cheadle as the new Rhodey, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer (at least in the background), and Gwyneth Paltrow back again as the lovely Miss Pepper Potts. Unfortunately the photos weren't released online, so we have to turn to our friends over at SlashFilm for the scans. They're not the best photos (they're a bit small and cramped), but they are new!

Iron Man 2 - Entertainment Weekly

Before you ask any questions, that photo to the right shows Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. watching playback from a boxing ring. Apparently Happy Hogan spars with Tony Stark? There also seems to be a very interesting court room battle going on - as the photos with Rhodey and Potts both seem to be set in the same courtroom. And then there's Justin Hammer who is mysteriously sitting in the background. What the heck is going on here? We previously saw paparazzi photos of Cheadle as Rhodey earlier this year, but those weren't official shots like this one is. You can expect some huge buzz for Iron Man 2 at Comic-Con next weekend.

  • crumb
    Don Cheadle is one of the best actors out there. What are you not sold about?
  • Stan 'The Viewers Choice' Morrow (Facebookme!!!)
    Don Cheadle is one of the top ten actors in the world right now, up there with depp ....
  • Sancho
    @ crumb because Don Cheadle is no pimp, like Terrence Howard thats why. but who knows maybe he can pull it off. You know it's hard out here for a pimp When he tryin to get this money for the rent For the Cadillacs and gas money spent Because a whole lot of bitches talkin shit
  • Xerxex
    Wow Sancho no....that was 100% cheesy! Joking do as you please. Me, I say go Cheadle! Don Cheadle just seems like he can come in a fill the shoes that Howard left behind.
  • Shaun
    terrence howard sucks. end of story. All for Cheadle as War Machine.
  • Caleb
    #5, #6, no
  • Robbie
    Man.. I can't wait till Comic-Con!
  • ryderup
    Hate it when they change actors in filmseries, Don't like the switch to Cheadle from Howard.
  • L
    Maybe if Howard wasn't such a diva, he would find himself on the set right now instead of doing voice over work
  • Spider
    Nice pics. I sure do miss Terence Howard, though. I really wish they hadn't replaced him. This flick is bound to be epic.
  • Cat
    Howard brought it on himself and cheadle is better anyway.
    The could have replaced him with WEBSTER for all I care.................Gonna watch it no matter what
  • still mad howard got cheadled. still mad.
  • Cody
    Whatsa matter with Cheadle? I mean hes not masterful but he can act just fine dont understand why you wouldnt be "sold". Making a big deal outta nothing
  • Funny how people are not sold just because they dont wanna change it up. This is the same thing people said about Heath being the Joker before shooting and the guy won ALL the supporting awards last year lol.. Give the guy a chance, he is one of the best actors out there and I know he will pull it off.
  • blackgreensoul
    Who cares about the stupid black guy(meaning the whole character in general, including both actors) anyway? This movie will be awesome!!!
  • Fisherr
    Wicked, bring the Red and Golden armor back again i think we are ready!
  • i like iron man 2 because i will see robert downey jr. and don cheadle suit up on this movie don cheadle's war machine suit is black and sliver my favorite iron man 2 character is iron man and war machine they are cool i like robert downey jr. and don cheadle so i will see iron man 2 in theatres may 7th 2010 see ya.
  • J.White
    *** In about 2 maybe 3 movies + Avengers, we will all be saying: "God, I wish Don Cheadle was Rhodey in the first movie." Watch.
  • Sancho
    @23 you forgot to say NOT!!!!! at the end.
  • AprilCoolsDay
    Terence Howard was fine in Iron Man 1. A military officer with smooth voice, that was something fresh.
  • Mark
    Howard is barely watchable. Too metro. Cheadle is one of if not the finest actor today. He will nail this role like he does all, the man is simply amazing. Maybe Favreau can do some Lucas CGI and super-CG-impose Cheadle over Howard in the Iron Man re-release? Just a though :)
  • buooy
    for number 3 ! agree
  • a dog
    i dont know about cheadle cause howard was way beast in that movie (the first one)
  • Stig
    This will definetly be the top hit of 2010, the way it's going.
