The ever-increasing cast of Iron Man** 2** already includes Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau (who, of course, also directs), MIckey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Garry Shandling and John Slattery, but it landed two more names today, in Kate Mara and Clark Gregg.

Mara, who you may remember from Brokeback Mountain (as Ledger's character's daughter) or Shooter, plays a character who's still under wraps. Looking at her, we're kinda wishing she was a little bit older and had been cast as Mary-Jane in Spider-Man, but we don't know who she's playing here.

Gregg, however, returns as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, having taken time out in between to direct Choke.

Iron Man 2 is out on May 7, 2010.
