Scarlett and Mickey to join Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man sequel

Tuesday April 7, 2009

Describing the cast of the comic hero franchise's next episode as a “Who’s Who in Hollywood" Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr has confirmed he is to share the screen with man of the moment Mickey Rourke and Tinseltown lovely Scarlett Johansson.  
 
"They are both cast and doing Iron Man 2," reveals the actor, adding Garry Shandling will also be in the new movie. "Of course we have Don Cheadle. We have Sam Jackson. We have Sam Rockwell. And we have, my dearest heart, Gwyneth Paltrow," he says.

He's also apparently eyeing Gwyneth's man for his current project, Sherlock Holmes. “We are hoping Chris Martin of Coldplay will contribute to our score. He’s a huge Sherlock Holmes fan."

And there's more Iron Man action in the pipeline apparently, as the actor says a third movie has already been planned.
