It doesn't really matter to me whether he's a pawn or a partner. They just need to be connected in some way, IMO.

While it'd be cool, I don't think it's completelly necessary, IMO.

So I guess Hammer will survive the film. If that's the case, Ivan's gonna die.

He might not die, just get locked up or something.

It'd be cool, but I think the public needs closure, so, they have to kill one of the villains. If Hammer survives and Black Widow turns out to be a good girl, Whiplash is doomed.

Maybe by the end of the film Ivan will be more of a tragic character than the cold bastard we think he will be. We'll eventually understand the man maybe and feel bad for him in doing what he does. I'd be fine with either.

BW is obviously not going to die. So it's Hammer and Whiplash. And no way do I want Hammer to die, that'd just be f'ing stupid. He's far too valuable as an enabler for other villains. Killing him off would be a really bone-headed thing to do.

And, Whiplash is running around shirtless with a bunch of metal devices strapped to his chest and arms? How could he NOT die?

Sam Rockwell is one cool cat. Loved his interaction with Rhodey in the trailer. This great little random character moment that I just loved had him take a lollipop out of its wrapper and, rather than sucking on it, he just got a hold of it with his back teeth and crunched it off in one bite.

Really? That's pretty awesome. I don't remember that. Sounds like Rockwell will be the hidden gem in the movie.

And Keysor, they described some "lame" footage before RBJ came out and demanded for better footage. Can you describe what that was please?

Sure. The lights went down, and they showed a generic little featurette, giving us little glimpses of the actors lounging around between takes or Favreau setting up a shot, the kind of behind-the-scenes stuff we've already seen in set pics. It got a polite applause as it finished. But then the lights come up, and Robert Downey Jr is onstage! It's funny, not everyone noticed him right away, so the excitement kind of spread like a Mexican wave - "ooooooooooooAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!"

And yeah, Sam Rockwell is an awesome, underrated actor. In a way I've been anticipating his role in the movie as much as I have Mickey Rourke's. Like I originally predicted when his casting was first announced, it seems like his take on Justin Hammer is someone who tries very hard to be as cool and suave as Tony Stark, but doesn't quite pull it off.

Thanks alot Keysor!

Yeah, I love the angle. I don't mind about the age. In fact it works to the story's advantage. I love the concept of dopplegangers (hell I'm the only one who like Brock in SM3) but Rockwell will be awesome. I just hope he gets enough screen time to be satisfied.

If I was at SDCC I would of asked Favreau as to how he kept the focus of Tony's story as the center of the film, when he's surrounded by many new characters. In the script process to filming and always trying to keep the focus on Tony while giving enough screen time to the other characters where we're satisfied.

Has it been brought up that Hammer wears a ring on his pink finger just like Obadiah Stane?

Interesting! Not only did Obidiah Stane have that, but the terrorist leader in the first film had it too. Perhaps they are laying the groundwork to expand on the Ten Rings, with various underbosses all serving under the figurehead - The Mandarin.

Nice catch. Sounds reasonable enough.

EDIT: Well, except it would have Stane killing one of his own. Or more importantly, killing one of Mandarin's men. I don't know if Mandarin would stand for that, or if Stane would really dare do something like that.

Maybe Stane was trying to go rogue before he was cut down by Iron Man.

Could Stane have originally gotten the suit to take over or fight the mandarin? Doubtful but would be cool.

Could be. I don't remember Stane having a master plan so that would make sense. Perhaps all will be revealed in IM2 or IM3 (when Mandarin's most likely to show up).

Jon Favreau said in an interview it would most likely be IM3.
