Please tell me they have a sequel in the works.

Oh, that magnet thing - that was only to keep shrapnel from his heart? But he improved the power source somehow? I didn't get all that as I have to keep the TV volume low.
Yeah Iron Man 2 and 3 are being planned and he will be part of the The Avengers movie as well. He has a cameo in the end of The Incredible Hulk film (2008) And yes, it was to keep the shrapnel away

Isn't there also talk that Favreau wants to release the next IM in IMAX and/or 3D ?

I read that, that would be a good idea. Though I was hoping that Terrance Howard was going to return for the sequels

Re: Iron Man

apparently he was cast first and he got paid more than RDJ, Gwyneth or Jeff, so that was part of why he was dumped. the other was that Fav wasn't happy with his part, which is why he had several scenes cut and/or reshot to minimise his role.

although they really should've left in his scene at Bagram with the general...

Re: Iron Man

Don Cheadle is a fine actor, but at least my initial reaction is that I'm not sure about him in the part of Rhodes. Then again that's probably better left to those more familiar with the Iron Man characters, etc.

That reminds me of the time Tyrese Gibson was paid $8,000,000 for his appearance in Transformers which was more than what the film's star Shia LaBeouf received which was only $500,000.

When I saw those figures, my reaction was: "$8,000,000 for saying 'Left cheek! Left cheek! Left cheek!'"

LaBeouf only got half a million for that ?

I don't even rate the guy very much but he's the star of the movie. He's probably got the same agent as Christopher Reeve did.

It is an essential part of the Iron Man origin story.

This reminds me of the time Chris Tucker received $5 million more than Jackie Chan for each of the Rush Hour sequels, and of course Terence Howard who received more money than each of the main cast (Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow) for Iron Man.

Wonder if that is the reason for the constant delays to Rush Hour 2, but more so for Rush Hour 3, or maybe it had to do with script re-writes

Re: Iron Man

Well, I don't think it took any convincing at all to bring Jackie Chan back for the Rush Hour sequels. But Chris Tucker seems to have semi-retired from acting. I imagine it would take more money & more convincing to bring him back.
