Two More Join Iron Man 2

THR has revealed that Clark Gregg and Kate Mara have been casted in "Iron Man 2." The sequel to the critically acclaimed Marvel film has been filming since the beginning of April but we are now seeing some secondary characters being flushed out.

Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. while Kate Mara's role has not been revealed as of yet. Gregg returning as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is not surprising considering "Iron Man 2" will further setup the Avengers film.

Mara's role however can begin a whirlwind of speculation as to who she will play. The strong money is on Sharon Carter or known as Agent 13 for S.H.I.E.L.D., Carter is Steve Rogers aka Captain America's girlfriend and would be a nice setup role. Other roles Mara could be possibly be playing is another female that Stark swoons into bed, Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp (previous reports have lead us to believe Eva Longoria will play her), or some huge longshots could even be She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, or Ms. Marvel.

More news to follow as it develops....
