Yesterday, Screen Rant reported on the very first images of Scarlett Johansson in costume as the Black Widow for the upcoming Marvel Studios production of the sequel to Iron Man.

This was our first look at one of the new characters and faces added to the Iron Man franchise and Marvel Movie Universe.  Today, we can add two more with our first looks at the new James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes played by Don Cheadle as well as Sam Rockwell’s Justin Hammer.

The images come from /Film and I edited the actual stills for you. They don’t show too much but both seem to take place in a courtroom scene, likely over the issue of the government’s ownership of the Iron Man technology. Take a look and see what you think:

What fans really want to see is Rhodey in that other costume he wears. You know, the silver and black one littered in guns. I have a feeling we’ll get to see what the live-action War Machine armor looks like very soon.

I look forward to seeing Cheadle’s performance as Rhodes and although I don’t like actor changes during franchises, I think he’s much better for the role than Terrence Howard.

Expect some big updates and revelations very soon as the entire cast of Iron Man 2 will be on a panel next Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con and we’ll be there to give you all the coverage.

Similar to how we first got to see Scarlett in costume, it started with some low quality images that popped up online and were quickly followed by some higher resolution official images. Expect the same for these characters and more from next week!

Iron Man 2 is directed by Jon Favreau and kicks off the start of next summer, opening May 7, 2010.

  1. @chris
    good point. Once the armor is put on I don’t think we would notice a difference between the two of them though.

  2. lol @ Matt Keith

  3. One thing about the first Iron Man movie. All the actors were so good together, I forgot I was watching a Superhero flick. It’s a good formula and they haven’t lost anything without Howard. Although it will take a bit getting used to Cheadle playing a role that I had already associated with Howard. About TDK, even though I’m not a fan of Gyllenhal or Holmes, the Death of Rachel Dawes would have carried more weight for me if Katie was reprising her role. I still would’ve laughed though…heh.

  4. I worry this will follow a pattern of stuffing too many heroes/villans in a single movie such as; Spiderman 3, Batman and Robin, Batman Forever, X-Men II. Character development takes a back seat to action and the film suffers.

  5. I Disagree. what it takes to pretty much make a great movie is one heck of a plot, make the movie long enough so every character their fair share time in. X-men 2, Batman Forever were considered good films. Spider-man 3 and Batman & Robin were takin into the wrong direction, mostly because of the studios. Superman 2 had 3 villainsm 4 if you count Lex Luthor and people loved it just as much as the first film. Batman & Robin had 3 villains, but that wasnt the problem. it was how those villains were played out and film itself lacking the darkness as from the previous films. The Dark Knight had 3 villains. and made sure it was dark and gave enough screen time for the amount of time the movie ran. I remember people complained about Batman Returns being too dark. Mostly i just think films need the right plot and plenty of screen time for the main characters. If there was a super hero film 3 hrs long, id still go to the theater and watch it probly more than once.

  6. Sweet this was one of the coolest movies. I love the movie. so happy that we got to view it for free from your site
