'Iron Man 2' premieres in theaters on Friday, and we recently got a chance to attend the press day for the film. The sequel takes place a mere six months after Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) announces to the world that he is indeed, Iron Man -- and boy, oh boy, does he get a reaction.

Director Jon Favreau played coy when I asked him about any 'Thor' references, but told me the Easter Eggs are buried deep enough that fans might want to see the film a second time. Don Cheadle aimed a plastic gun at me -- to be fair, I shot first -- and talked about wearing the War Machine suit.

Gwyneth Paltrow
explained that she's a fan of non-conventional approaches to things. In this case, it's the way she handled the relationship between her character, Pepper, and Scarlett Johansson's character Natalie Rushman, aka the Black Widow. And Mickey Rourke, famous for his love of animals, told me that he not only campaigned for his character's pet bird -- but adopted him, too!
