Tim Robbins is going to be playing Howard Stark in an important flashback sequence that is going to set up the 'Avengers' and 'Captain America' films

Tim Robbins is to appear in the 'Iron Man' sequel.

The 'Shawshank Redemption' actor is reportedly set to play Howard Stark, the father of Robert Downey Jr.'s character Tony Stark, in the forthcoming follow-up to this summer's blockbuster comic book movie.

A source told Latino Review: "Tim Robbins is going to be playing Howard Stark in an important flashback sequence that is going to set up the 'Avengers' and 'Captain America' films.

"Director Jon Favreau wanted to get a good actor because he didn't think Gerard Sanders, the guy who played Howard in the last film could carry such an important scene."

Popular comic character Hawkeye and Black Widow are also set to appear in the sequel, though it has not been revealed who they will be played by.
