    Hmm... I didn't know that, or anything else about the Ultimate Universe. Over there, do Captain America and Fury ever clash over leadership of the superhero team? Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury may form the Avengers on film, but I can't see him bossing Cap, Iron Man and Thor around.

    He's not really the leader of the Ultimates, he's the head of SHIELD; he's more like their supervisor.

    Yeah, that's what I meant to imply, sorry about that. I haven't actually read any of The Ultimates, but I assume Ultimate Cap was still their actual leader on the field.

    Maybe a Thor cameo or the camera pans up to reveal the icy tomb of Chris Evan's Captain America.

    Nick Fury- We're going to need all the help we can get

    That she is. I think really, Iron Man was her best role so far. I never used to like her that much before Iron Man, but she just embodied the sassy, sexy cute Pepper Potts. I also really liked the "old time" feel the whole Stark/Potts relationship had. It reminded me so much of those old timey comedies like with Spencer Tracey and the girl actress du jour, where they'd have this witty repartee and fast back and forth. I mean even that whole exchange during Trailer 2 when they first show off Scar Jo as the "Notary"

    "I want one."

    Pepper gives a cute lip thing, "No."

    Pure classic old Hollywood right there.

    Although one thing that popped up during that one scene in that new clip trailer thingy... you see the limo that Happy usually drives racing the opposite direction of the other F1 cars... could it be... is that where HAPPY HOGAN saves the day?! I recall an old issue of Iron Man where Tony explains why he trusted Happy so much "When he pulled me from the burning wreck of my crashed Indy car I knew he could be trusted." or something like that.

    If so... nice little nod to the source there, if its Happy that literally races to Tony's rescue with the Mark V suitcase

    Nick Fury is - as noted - head of SHIELD. through the first arc, Fury's basically putting together the Ultimates and trrying to get a recreation of the Captain America formula. They find and thaw out Cap and fight Hulk in New York. The second arc revolves around the Ultimates and SHIELD fighting off a Skrull invasion.

    Ultimates 2 sees them getting involved in the Mid-East, despite the promises made that they were strictly for homeland defence against superhuman threats. the arc culminates in an invasion of America and the Ultimates leaving US government control. they set up as The Avengers at Stark's NY mansion. That's the state of play in Ultimates 3, which then leads into Ultimatum and many changes to the status quo.

    That's awesome if Bethany Cabe is in it...perhaps she'll get a more prominent role in Iron Man 3.

    OK she's not playing Bethany. Maybe she's playing Janet Van Dyne.

    OK, maybe she's the water delivery girl. I can see Stark signing up for the service if the delivery person is pretty.

    Well someone needs to update IMDB, even the article mentions that.
    Seems they missed opportunity then to include another character in Stark's repertoire of redheads.

    Are the billionaire superheroes headed for a switch at the top? Can Iron Man 2 overthrow The Dark Knight for opening weekend.
