Marvel released a new featurette from Iron Man 3 today. Just a kindly hint that the movie needs its fans, especially those who haven’t seen the film, to visit theaters this week and help it stay number one at the box office.

Iron Man 3 just passed $200 million domestically, which brings it’s worldwide total to $745 million. That’s about half-way to the world wide gross of The Avengers. Not too shabby.

Speaking of The Avengers, Nikki Finke is reporting that the cast wants to return, even Robert Downey Jr, but that Marvel is playing stingy with the salaries. Whether or not the regular cast is back for the second Avengers, depends a lot on how much leverage Downey jr has toward securing not just a large salary for him, but also for returning cast members.

Would you like to see The Avengers sequel return most, if not all, of the original cast? Who do you think could be cut?
