More Avengers Movie News

According to a story on Newsarama, Robert Downey, Jr., Jon Favreau, and Don Cheadle will all be involved in the planned “The Avengers” movie in addition to their “Iron Man” commitments.

Downey, of course, starred as the eponymous hero of “Iron Man” earlier this year, and Cheadle is taking over the role of James “Rhodey” Rhodes, which was originated by Terrence Howard.  In the comics, Rhodey eventually becomes the superhero War Machine, and it was strongly hinted in the first movie that he would do so on screen, too.
Also, Downey’s contract is for a four-picture deal, meaning there will almost certainly be a third “Iron Man” movie.  Favreau is slated to direct “Iron Man 2” and will executive produce “The Avengers.”
“Iron Man 2” is scheduled for release on May 7, 2010, and “The Avengers” is expected to come out on July 15, 2011.
