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.

tankmaster on Jul 17, 2009


gotta agree with number 3

cesking on Jul 17, 2009


Don Cheadle is one of the best actors out there. What are you not sold about?

crumb on Jul 17, 2009


Don Cheadle is one of the top ten actors in the world right now, up there with depp ....

Stan 'The Viewers Choice' Morrow (Facebookme!!!) on Jul 17, 2009


@ 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

Sancho on Jul 17, 2009


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.

Xerxex on Jul 17, 2009


terrence howard sucks. end of story. All for Cheadle as War Machine.

Shaun on Jul 17, 2009

Caleb on Jul 17, 2009


Man.. I can't wait till Comic-Con!

Robbie on Jul 18, 2009


Hate it when they change actors in filmseries, Don't like the switch to Cheadle from Howard.

ryderup on Jul 18, 2009


Maybe if Howard wasn't such a diva, he would find himself on the set right now instead of doing voice over work

L on Jul 18, 2009


Nice pics. I sure do miss Terence Howard, though. I really wish they hadn't replaced him. This flick is bound to be epic.

Spider on Jul 18, 2009


Howard brought it on himself and cheadle is better anyway.

Cat on Jul 18, 2009


The could have replaced him with WEBSTER for all I care.................Gonna watch it no matter what

SHANEDAV on Jul 18, 2009


still mad howard got cheadled. still mad.

manxome on Jul 18, 2009


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

Cody on Jul 18, 2009


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.

Barnaby Barrilla on Jul 18, 2009


Wicked, bring the Red and Golden armor back again i think we are ready!

Fisherr on Jul 18, 2009

andries price on Jul 18, 2009


*** In about 2 maybe 3 movies + Avengers, we will all be saying: "God, I wish Don Cheadle was Rhodey in the first movie." Watch.

J.White on Jul 18, 2009


@23 you forgot to say NOT!!!!! at the end.

Sancho on Jul 18, 2009


Terence Howard was fine in Iron Man 1. A military officer with smooth voice, that was something fresh.

AprilCoolsDay on Jul 19, 2009


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 🙂

Mark on Jul 19, 2009


for number 3 ! agree

buooy on Jul 21, 2009


i dont know about cheadle cause howard was way beast in that movie (the first one)

a dog on Aug 7, 2009


This will definetly be the top hit of 2010, the way it's going.
