Tim Robbins to play IronMan's dad in flashback scene in IronMan2!!

So I just found out this new tidbit, Mr. Robbins will be in the next Iron Man 2 flik as Howard Stark, Tony Stark's father, in a flashback scene possibly shedding some light on the super-soldier program that General Ross had a hand in creating.

Also there are rumours abound in the possible appearance of Hawkeye and Black Widow which I had thought were supposed to be in the last film, but were cut due to story etc..Hilary Swank supposedly shot a scene in the Black Widow duds but this was never confirmed or denied..

Anyhoo, below is an excerpt from the article at

Can'wait for this flik...obviously.


It’s no surprise after the changing of Rhodey from Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle not too long ago that Favreau would want a better quality actor to portray such an important character. After all this is Tony Stark’s father, the man who helped shape him into the man we know.
Since the flashback scene will presumably take place when Tony Stark is a young boy (as that’s when his father died) we have no problem with Robbins being believable as Downey Jr’s father.

Thinking of it in that way I actually think Robbins could play the fatherly role very well, he’s certainly proven his worth previously with the likes of The Shawshank Redemption and Jacob’s Ladder

-"Liberty Meadows", rated R, and filmed like "Garfield"
-"The Avengers"
-An "Uncanny X-men" television series instead of some overblown film, done ala "Smallville"
-A "Star Wars" television series that explores not only stories about other characters inbetween the film series and history of the series but also the "What if's" as well.
