Comic-Con: Days Two & Three

Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2. Oh, no, I'm sorry. I'm being told this a candid shot of Rourke leaving his home on any given Tuesday afternoon.

Here we go! Let's wrap-up Comic-Con days two and three!
  • Gary Oldman let slip at a panel that they might, in fact, be filming a follow-up to The Dark Knight next year, for release in 2011. He later backpedaled in an interview, stating that he had no idea when they were filming, but that it would be "soon." More here. Sounds like Oldman was just stirring up the fanboys, but the notion of a third Nolan film filming soon is intriguing. Could this mean a script (complete with villains) is nailed down?
  • Halo Legends, an upcoming anime based on the events of the Halo trilogy of video games, premiered. Check it out here.
  • Quint over at AIC has a solid write-up of the Iron Man 2 panel with director Jon Favreau. Mickey Rourke will be playing Whiplash, and some of the footage shown included an action sequence involving the character and Robert Downey, Jr.'s Tony Stark. However, the biggest reveal of the panel was confirmation of the appearance of War Machine, whom comic fans will recognize as the armored alter ego of Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle this time around). It's a good read, so check it out.
Check back for more updates!
