The director has updated his Iron Man group blog with a couple paragraphs about the highly anticipated comic book adaptation. He tells us, "The company has been on the road for many weeks. We started off in the mountains of Lone Pine which doubled for Afghanistan. We then moved to Edwards Air Force Base. We finally closed out the out of town work with Fontana, CA."
There are a couple of other juicy tidbits thrown in. He assures us that he will be attending this year's San Diego Comic Con, and that a couple of teaser trailers are on their way. Though, he has no set date for when those might appear. It's doubtful they'll appear before Spider-Man 3 but you never know.

Based on the long-running Marvel comic book series, Iron Man tells the story of Tony Stark, the enigmatic heir to the Stark Enterprises fortune. A driven inventor and executive who seems to have it all, Tony is haunted by his dark side. Though he commands his empire by day, by night he secretly becomes Iron Man, the living embodiment of decades of defense spending and innovation. Strapping on billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art armor and weaponry each night to fight crime, terrorism and corporate espionage, Tony begins to crack under the strain of his fractured lifestyle and must ultimately confront the one enemy he can never beat -- himself.
