    Since that other thread turned mostly to Rourke discussion, I figure Rockwell deserves his own thread. Sounds like he's 100% on-board

    aha, so hes definitely Hammer. Thats cool and all I was just really hoping he was Hawkeye. Its still Rockwell, the most underused talent in Hollywood, in Iron Man 2 so thats cool.

    Didnt know he was dating Bibb.

    Didnt know he was considered for Tony Stark either. RDJ was definitely the way to go, but Rockwell would have been cool too.

    Good to hear. I wonder if they'll have Hammer be Tony's age or if he'll be playing an older, more comics accurate gent. I guess we'll see soon enough.

    They can always age him up a bit with the makeup. There may be some Tim Robbins flashbacks in there... so I don't know who they'll use in those scenes. Wouldn't make sense if Hammer was a big player back in Howard Stark's days if he is a young character in this flick. They could go either way.

    Why are we talking about age makeup? For all we know this might be a different younger take on the character?

    Also, I guess this is a circumstance where accepting a role without reading the script is OK ;) .

    Did you read what Fat TOnie said. He said Rockwell could be playing Hammer in 2 different generations as a rival to both Stark's father and Stark, an interesting speculation

    I think there's a reason they cast someone who had been considered for Tony Stark as Justin Hammer. It sounds like Rockwell's Hammer will be portrayed as the anti-Stark.

    Honestly, Robert Downey Jr. aside, I can never picture Rockwell as Tony Stark. He's too much of a character actor.

    Hopefully Rockwell's performance will redeem himself for his poor Zaphod.

    Sounds very interesting. I'm really looking foward to this now. Since Hammer is running the weapons stuff he will probably be buying arms and weapons from the Russians. Which is where the ultimate weapon comes in: Crimson Dynamo.

    Very cool stuff. And with Black Widow in, it could be very spy like. I'm getting a modern technological From Russia With Love with a superhero twist vibe here. Does that sound really cool to anyone else?

    Unfortunately I can't this time. I'm going back to my career as a truck driver in February(my licencse has been suspended for 3 years due to tickets), so I'll rarely get to a computer to post on here(like once every 2-3 weeks). But I'm sure some other industrious individual will take up the challenge.

    I like his Zaphod. And I think he's a terrific actor, and probably at Marvel they think it too as he was considered for both Banner and Blonsky too.

    ^He could've made a great Stark or Banner. Keep up the good casting choices Marvel!
