Can you say "'Iron Man 2" reunion"?
As much as we'd like to forget that particular sequel confection, all the essential ingredients of it were solid (except perhaps the gamey taste of Mickey Rourke), so it makes our mouth water to learn via The Hollywood Reporter that the delectable Scarlett Johansson will be assembling with Avenger Robert Downey Jr. for star/director Jon Favreau's "Chef."

[From MTV News] As with all of Marvel's movies, "Iron Man 3" ended with an Easter egg — this time, a little button of a scene between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and a decidedly unengaged Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as the eponymous superhero recounts his post-"Avengers" experiences.
According to Mark Ruffalo, that scene was conceived and abandoned at least once before time actually came to film it. Get More »
One of the many perks Robert Downey Jr. gets with each new "Iron Man" sequel (besides a substantially bigger paycheck) is spending less time in those hot-rod red suits and more time in his trailer watching "Downton Abbey" with Jon Favreau.
With "Iron Man Three" rocketing to the top of the global box office, we thought we'd calculate just how much RDJ's Tony Stark has been slacking with each ensuing installment, leaving Rhodey and Pepper Potts to do the dirty work.

If you are a living, breathing human being between the ages of four and 110, then it's almost a certainty that at some point this month, you'll be going to see "Iron Man Three." And not just once but probably several times. Get More »
Ben Franklin once famously said that the only two certainties in life were death and taxes. But that's only because he wasn't aware of this weekend's box office matchup, which was as sure a thing as this world has ever seen thanks to the debut of "Iron Man 3."
And according to Film.com, lightning has indeed struck a third time, as "Iron Man 3" earned an estimated $175.3 million in its opening weekend to record the second highest opening in history, behind only Marvel's "The Avengers." That film brought in an incredible $207.4 million last year.
For a full run down of the weekend's box office top ten, head over to Film.com. But seriously, don't expect to see much going on other than "Iron Man 3." It's basically the only game in town.
With "Iron Man Three" already destroying box office records around the world and inspiring fans across America to brave huge lines and packed theaters, the folks at Disney and Marvel are no doubt in full-on party mode. But while things couldn't be better at the moment, one very dark cloud looms on the horizon: the prospect that Robert Downey Jr. has donned the Iron Man armor for the last time.
So will Downey Jr. return for "Iron Man 4"? Or is this the end of Iron Man as we know it? Get More »
"Dads leave, you don’t have to be such a pussy about it." – Tony Stark, 'Iron Man Three'
Greetings from the apocalypse! Free Comics? An "Iron Man" sequel that doesn't suck? Genre festivals, eccentric painter docs and serial killer biopics? Have I been irradiated and gone to heaven? Nope, it's all happening man, it's all happening … Get More »
Sometimes when fans go to see superhero movies they already know in advance everything there is to know about the bad guy. After all, everyone's familiar with The Joker or Lex Luthor. However, sometimes the bad guy is some relatively obscure figure known only to scholars of the source comic book — you know, like Bane or Thanos or Parallax.
If you heard the news that the Chinese are being treated to four more minutes of "Iron Man 3" screen stuffs than the rest of the world and immediately became jealous of those occupying the space of the world's largest country because of said information, rest easy.
Those extra moments are not even remotely — insert our shocked face here — pertinent to the rest of the movie. Get More »
Marvel's Phase Two of movies rockets to new heights with "Iron Man Three," a surprisingly funny and explosive sequel with Robert Downey Jr. back as the man in the iron suit facing off against a mysterious new enemy known as the Mandarin. Also back is Don Cheadle for his second stint playing Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes, Tony's best friend and the man who suits up in the War Machine armor that has been painted in a red, silver and blue patriotic design re-named the Iron Patriot.
Cheadle, who took over the role of Rhodey from Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2," is a versatile actor who is just as at home in the porn world of "Boogie Nights" as he is in a superhero's iron suit or in his Oscar-nominated role in "Hotel Rwanda."
We sat down with the Iron Patriot himself as he talked about Rhodey's superhero potential, what he spent his first professional paycheck on and whether or not he thinks he's a film snob. Get More »
