Hilary Swank Lands an Iron Man Role?

The next karate kid to cameo with Sam Jackson.

If the already stellar cast and a cameo by Samuel L. Jackson isn’t enough to keep the Iron Man fans interested, get this: Two-time Oscar Winner Hilary Swank has just signed on for a (small) role.

Mr. Jackson will be playing a character (well) known as Nick Fury, but who will Ms. Swank get to play? The MTV Movies Blog speculates that either A) she’ll have something to do with the Fury character, or B) she’ll be setting up her own superhero franchise by making a brief appearance in Iron Man.

And of course Jon Favreau’s action adventure already has Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, and Jeff Bridges on board. This may very well be the finest-pedigreed superhero movie ever made. But what’s cool about the next wave of Marvel movies … the heroes can intermix! No more worries about Sony this and Universal that.

Marvel producer Avi Arad also offers a tiny tidbit of Spider-Man 4 semi-news, but Spidey’s on the back burner for now. These days it’s all Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. (Next summer!)
