The sequel to the 2008 superhero blockbuster is currently in production and slated for a May 2010 release, but fans won't have to wait that long to learn about Tony's future exploits.

Director Jon Favreau has been providing fans with updates from the set on his Twitter account, Tweeting cryptically on Friday, "Two suits on the set today," potentially referring to Don Cheadle as James Rhodes joining Tony in Iron Man armor.
