Jon Favreau and Stan Lee are on the promotional trail, doing interviews to promote Iron Man‘s pending release on DVD and Blu-ray — and you know what that means: Lots and lots of questions about Iron Man 2. Luckily for all of us, Favreau is ready and willing to give up the goods.
Favreau and Lee spoke with a number of media outlets this week, but CHUD‘s Devin Faraci has done a bang-up job of breaking it all down into handy bullet points, so we’ll point you there for the bulk of your Iron Man 2 information — including the news that Favreau is already hard at work on the script with Justin Theroux and Robert Downey Jr., that he wants War Machine to make an appearance in the sequel, and that he’s trying to wrap his head around how to make Ol’ Shell-Head’s nemesis, the Mandarin, look cool on the big screen.
Favreau also promised to up the action ante in future installments, and talked about his plans for incorporating the comic’s classic “Demon in a Bottle” storyline into the movies, which he says he sees as more of a seamless, Lord of the Rings-type trilogy than a series of loosely connected parts.

Meanwhile, Collider also had a chat with Favreau and Lee, and came away with the news that the director is champing at the bit for the opportunity to film the sequel in 3-D — and partially in IMAX. It’ll come down to a cost decision, as you might imagine, and Favreau admitted this — before taking the opportunity to take a swipe at the way Fox makes sequels. Collider‘s interview hasn’t been fully transcribed yet, but they’re offering the whole hourlong shebang up for download — click below to hear it!
