First up in Downey & Favreau news they will be teaming up to bring Cowboys & Aliens to the big screen for DreamWorks, according to THR's Heatvisionblog. Downey Jr. has been long attached to the project with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci taking over scripting duties on the film along with "Lost" exec producer Damon Lindelof.

In Iron Man 2 news AICN have word that there is a one minute test clip of Iron Man 2 in 3D using the same technique Tim Burton has used for his Alice In Wonderland, which the studio is considering releasing shell heads latest adventure in 3D with Iron Man 1 been possibility aswell. AICN said this:
Right now, there is a 1 minute demo of IRON MAN 2 converted to high quality digital 3D. I'm told this one minute is totally like Kim Basinger & Mickey Rourke in 9 1/2 WEEKS. HOT! Crazy Hot! Right now the Suits at Marvel & Paramount & now also Disney are considering this 1 minute.

At the same time that this is happening, they are fishing for bids with 3 different companies to see what the cost and time it would take to convert IRON MAN 2 to a complete 3D film. This same process is being done to Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND - but if this comes to pass. What will this mean for the rest of Marvel's slate leading to THE AVENGERS? Will THOR & CAPTAIN AMERICA also go through this process? Or will they be shot from the get go in 3D.
