I haven't been following the approach of the Iron Man production very carefully -- shooting started on March 12 -- so I have nothing to say about this batch of apparently contraband pics except that I think Gwyneth Paltrow looks really good as a redhead. The photos, which are up over at Just Jared, show director Jon Favreau conversing with stars Robert Downey Jr. and Paltrow, who are dressed to the nines and apparently shooting some kind of chaste love scene. I don't see the pics on Favreau's MySpace page, so I assume that some enterprising set visiter just shot them via a cufflink-cam or some other hidden device.

The ball got rolling for this film back in 2006 when the rights reverted from New Line Cinema to Marvel and they quickly put it into production. So far, what we know is that the villain will be Mandarin, and he will be played by Shaun Toub. We also know that Terrence Howard is playing War Machine and Jeff Bridges is playing Iron Monger, but none of those guys are featured in these pics -- it's just a few snaps of Paltrow and Downey getting some instructions. Paramount plans to release Iron Man on May 2, 2008, which, if memory serves, will put it very close to Speed Racer and that guy with the whip.
