New Iron Man Casting

Iron Man 2 isn't slated for release until 2010, but it's already almost completely cast. Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow will be the only major cast members to be returning. Woman beater Terrence Howard has been replaced as Colonel James Rhodes by Don Cheadle and Sam Rockwell will play Justin Hammer. Also signing on to the project are "The Spirit" co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson who will play Black Widow and Nick Fury. Rounding out the cast is Mickey Rourke who has finally sealed a deal to play the villain Whiplash. Rourke's team had reportedly held out for more money after Marvel's initial offer was just $250,000.
All I have to say is, this casting is perfection. Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Samuel L. and Scarlett Johansson?!? If they added a dash of Giovanni Ribisi, they'd be so golden.
