Wanna see some Iron Man goodness? You’ll have to head to the San Diego Comic-Con where Jon Favreau will be sharing the big room on Saturday with Hulk and Marvel during the company’s one hour presentation. Favreau says he’ll try and cut something together as a reward for fans.
Favreau and company will also be doing signing and poster giveaways at the Marvel booth on Saturday, so be sure to get in line early for both events.
And what about those Iron Man rumors?
Second of all, you had questions about Iron Monger/Mandarin/Obadiah Stane. My response is read the books. We took certain liberties to keep things fresh and unexpected but we are essentially using the books to inspire our story. Iron Man fans should have no problem piecing together what’s what. As far as what villains appear in this movie’s storyline, I should reiterate that in the year spent developing our story we decided to treat Iron Man as a first chapter. We cover the origin story and the rise of the hero. It stands alone as a movie, but definitely leaves room for more to be told. Sequels often feel like the story was slapped together in a scramble to exploit a successful franchise. I prefer when stories are mapped out in advance. They feel less repetitive and arbitrary. Additional Iron Man movies are by no means guaranteed but, if we are lucky enough to do more, we will be ready to do them well.
Third. Cameos. I’ve read that Sam Jackson and Hilary Swank are Shield agents and that I myself play a Vegas security guard. There is no truth to any of these rumors.
(Well, maybe one is true.)
According to one of the many online news sources, the one rumor would be Favreau as the Vegas security guard at the end of the flick.
Why does all the good stuff have to happen at San Diego? Are you going? Don’t forget to take the poll!
