Fav's says He's Already Working on Iron Man 2

Ironman was both a box-office and critical success and Marvel definately has moved quickly to get the sequel up and running for its 2010 release date. Geoff Boucher, recently spoke with Jon Favreau and he had this to say about the sequel to his largely successful origin story, "We're working on it now, which hasn't been officially announced. It will be released in 2010." In fact Favreau is developing the script with Justin Theroux who is hot off the buzz around "Tropic Thunder." Exactly what the script will entail is primarily being kept under wraps, but the film will continue to setup the future release of, "The Avengers" that is slated for 2011. One can speculate that Fav's will continue to also develop Rhodes character into War Machine. I personally hope we get some Mandarin action, including the famous Marvel dragon Fing Fang Foom! (I can see Thor coming to help Stark to take down the mystical beast, further setting up the Avengers)

What are your thoughts on an Iron Man sequel? Did you enjoy the Iron Man as much as I, and a majority of the critics did? How perfect is Downey Jr as Stark? Whose a better playboy, Stark or Wayne? Did you know that during Robert Downey Jr. days of drug addiction, he once wandered into a stranger's house and passed out on a child's bed? (Imagine walking into your house to find RDJ all druged up and passed out like goldie locks in the bed)
