A top-notch cast for "Iron Man"

When I talked recently with Kevin Feige, president of production for Marvel Studios, he said further casting announcements concerning Marvel’s “Iron Man” feature film would be coming soon.

Today, Marvel announced that Academy Award-winner Gywneth Paltrow has signed on to play Virginia “Pepper” Potts, secretary and confidant to Tony “Iron Man” Stark. She joins Robert Downey Jr. as Stark and Howard Terrence as Jim “Rhodey” Rhodes — an impressive cast for Marvel Studios’ first solo effort.

“We could not be more excited about the great chemistry this illustrious cast will bring to ‘Iron Man,’ ” Feige said in a press release.
