Iron Man 3
'Iron Man 3' began filming this month yet we're still finding out about more actors who are appearing on set. Yesterday Jon Favreau revealed that he'll be reprising his role as Happy Hogan in the sequel. Today? Some information that just might be a bit cooler.
We're used to seeing the last minute additions of actors join the cast for random superhero movies, but the character that's being cast for 'Iron Man 3' has some fans scratching their heads. It's not that they don't want to see the character on the big screen, but how will he fit in the grand scheme of the story?
Okay, so who exactly is Tony Stark/Iron Man facing in the third movie? All of the cast is coming together but we're still not really sure who the villain is.

It was first reported two weeks ago that Jessica Chastain had been offered a role in 'Iron Man 3,' and now it looks as if the stunning Oscar nominee has made her decision on appearing in the film. And?
With Marvel Studios gearing up to begin shooting 'Iron Man 3' in a few weeks, one of the biggest questions regarding the film has been whether Scarlett Johansson would return as Black Widow. Well, the actress has now ended the speculation.
2011's 'It girl' and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain must have a lot of offers, but it seems that Marvel and Shane Black want her in 'Iron Man 3.' She's gone back in for more talks to play a sexy scientist (in cinema there are few female scientists who aren't) for the film, and would join the recently added Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley if so.
Just about two weeks ago, it was announced that Ben Kingsley would star as the villain in the upcoming 'Iron Man 3.' Today we have news about another new addition to the superhero sequel. Guy Pearce, soon to be seen starring in Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus,' has joined the cast in a role comic readers will be familiar with...
