Jon Favreau working on IRON MAN 2 right now!

The sequel to the $570 million Marvel hit due to hit theatres in April 2010.

Jon Favreau has told The L.A. Times that he has begun working on Iron Man 2, a sequel to the $570 million worldwide smash original which has propelled the slightly lesser known Marvel character to the heavy heights of better known hero's Spider-Man, Superman, Batman and the X-Men. Tropic Thunder scribe Justin Theroux is writing the script right now with Favreau no doubt working very closely with the screenwriter he hand chose for the project himself. Robert Downey Jr, Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow will all return for the sequel which by all accounts should begin filming no later than the Spring. Favreau told the press...

"We're working on it now," he said, "which hasn't been officially announced. It will be released in 2010."
That date is expected to be April 30th 2010, where it will once again kick off the Summer season early. Not long to wait then until we can see the next step in the evolution of The Avengers on our screen. In the mean time, make sure you get your pre-orders in for the Blu-Ray and Standard DVD release of the film due out in just a few short weeks. The movie ranks very highly on my top 10 list of the year so far and has certainly not been forgotten by me despite the sheer out of this world awesome that was The Dark Knight. source - coming soon
