With production wrapped on one of next summer's biggest films, director Jon Favreau stopped by his MySpace page to answer a few Iron Man questions and talk up the film's presence later this month at San Diego ComicCon. First off, he apologizes for there not being an Iron Man trailer in front of Transformers. However, he does promise to "reveal something very cool very soon." On his Iron Man ComicCon plans, Favreau notes: "We've secured a prime slot Saturday afternoon [July 28] in the big room at SDCC. We will split an hour with Marvel and Hulk and plan to cut something together to reward the fans for their interest, support and patience. In addition to our Saturday afternoon presentation, we will be doing a signing and poster giveaway at the Marvel booth on Saturday. Paramount is also doing a rundown of its slate on Thursday which I will do my best to attend as well."

By "cut something together," I assume that means he will unveil the first Iron Man trailer. Unfortunately, you'll have to be in San Diego to see it. But don't worry, we've got you covered -- Cinematical will be on the ground, scoping out any and all ComicCon exclusives. While we don't yet know if we'll be able to share actual video with you, we'll do everything in our power to make sure you're just as informed as that guy who's sitting in the first row sporting a "Vegas, baby!" t-shirt for all the world to see. Following his ComicCon announcements, Favreau next moves on to some questions about the villains in the film; essentially, how many are there and what sort of role Iron Monger/Mandarin/Obadiah Stane plays. Favreau stated that they are "essentially using the books to inspire our story" and that "fans should have no problem piecing together what's what." He also says that they've left plenty of room open for sequels (that make sense), but as always it will depend on how well Iron Man does when it's released on May 9 of next year.

Finally -- and this should certainly incite a debate -- Favreau addressed those rumors that have suggested Samuel L. Jackson, Hilary Swank and Favreau himself play roles in the film. As you may or may not know, Jackson was said to be shooting scenes as fellow Marvel superhero Nick Fury, while Swank was supposedly a Shield agent and Favreau, a Vegas security guard. Are they true? Favreau says, "There is no truth to any of these rumors." Then, at the bottom, he writes: (Well, maybe one is true.) Ah, but which one? Hopefully we'll find out sooner rather than later ...
