Filming on Iron Man 2, the sequel to last year's first blockbuster summer action flick, began Wednesday in Los Angeles. Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow are reprising their respective roles as billionaire Tony Stark/Iron Man and Pepper Potts. As was announced last October, Don Cheadle is replacing Terrence Howard as Col. James Rhodes. Samuel L.
