Director Jon Favreau is out promoting his "Iron Man" sequel and is getting many questions about some of the casting decisions he has made, including Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell.

According to Favreau, Rockwell was on his short list of actors for the role of Tony Stark in the first film. "He was one of the actors I was looking at for Tony Stark," he revealed. "There was some things he would bring to the role that would have been great. Sam is very charismatic and when I was looking at the character there was a list and he had a spot on it, which might have surprised some people. Robert surprised some people, too, though, and now he is Tony Stark, he owns that role. Sam would have come up with interesting and different things."

Downey likely got the job due to name-recognition, and Rockwell had to settle with playing Stark's rival Justin Hammer, who sees a chance to bring Stark down by helping a Whiplash get his revenge.
