Okay, I loved me some Iron Man (enough to include it on my best flicks of last year), but teh ‘monkey and I were both more than a little concerned with the choice of B-villain Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) as of the baddie this time around. Casting Scarlett Johannson as the Black Widow didn’t quell any of those fears (are they going to let her do a Russian accent?). Well, at least we get War Machine (as Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard) and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer. The first trailer is out, and it’s… a bit underwhelming, though it looks like Favreau has kept the humor of the first film. Iron Man 2 blasts into theaters next May.
