After being introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2010’s Iron Man 2, the last time we saw Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer was roughly four years ago when the character made a brief appearance in the 2014 short Marvel One-Shot: All Hail The King. Since then, the weapons manufacturer has been mentioned briefly in both the Iron Man 3 prelude and in the Netflix series Luke Cage. However, there’s been no word about former CEO Justin Hammer since we last saw him.
But that doesn’t mean that Sam Rockwell isn’t ruling out the possibility of a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Rockwell commented on potentially reprising the Justin Hammer role and it appears he wants to bring another Marvel Cinematic Universe veteran back to the big screen with him.
“Of course! I have some great buddies in that franchise. Jeremy Renner is a good friend of mine, and I am pals with Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo. Robert [Downey Jr.] is always fun. Would love to get me and Clark [Gregg] back in that franchise. That would be a lot of fun.”
While we have no idea what is in store for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the fourth Avengers film, I’d gladly welcome Rockwell back as Justin Hammer on either the big or small screen. While it currently seems unlikely that we’re going to see a fourth Iron Man film, there’s plenty of other places for Justin Hammer to pop up.

10 Marvel Villains Who Should Appear In The ‘Black Panther’ Sequel
Marvel’s Black Panther is still taking the box office by storm, but that isn’t stopping people from talking about what they want from the sequel. King T’Challa and the rest of Wakanda’s most interesting characters are set to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, but that movie will focus on Thanos and the Infinity Gems instead of seeing how Black Panther’s world has evolved. Not only does the Black Panther sequel have to follow up on multiple plot points hanging around on this movie, but it also needs to introduce new villains for T’Challa and his advisers to take on.
In order for him to continue growing and become more comfortable in his leadership position, T’Challa needs to be challenged in unique ways. Part of what made Killmonger such a unique villain is that he had a personal motivation that directly challenged T’Challa’s world view, and that idea can easily be replicated and expanded upon for the sequel. Black Panther has a very specific perspective on the world, and all of these villains will come in and force him to look at things in a different way as well as challenge him physically.
