Iron Man 2 hits theaters next year on May 7th, and the anticipation for its debut continues to grow. As the months progress we can expect to see a lot more from director Jon Favreau and its stars. The sequel to last year’s mega hit welcomes a few familiar faces in some established comic roles with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, and Don Cheadle taking over the role of James Rhodes from Terrence Howard.

From various reports, the introduction of Justin Hammer will play an important part in Rhodey’s transformation into Iron Man’s sidekick War Machine. Everyone will be stepping it up a notch with the overall look of their characters, and Iron Man will be leading the way. Check out his suit on the cover of Empire’s January issue…
