Jon Favreau knew he'd get a lot of people excited when he Tweeted last night, "Some very cool Cowboys & Aliens casting news coming soon..." The Iron Man 2 director is already prepping the next film as he wraps up the latest adventures of Tony Stark, and what we know about the Cowboys & Aliens cast so far is pretty much limited to Daniel Craig in the lead and Olivia Wilde as his female sidekick.

So who is this exciting casting? What Favreau didn't know is that Latino Review may have beaten him to the punch. They're reporting that they got a tip last week that Harrison Ford was about to join "a huge comic book movie to be directed by a director coming off a soon-to-be-released huge comic book movie." That info in combination with Favreau's tweet seems to point pretty directly to Ford, but given how many other comic book movies there are out there, who really knows?

We'll be keeping an eye on this to see when things finally get confirmed, but for the moment, you may be able to look forward to ol' Indiana Jones running away from aliens in a snappy hat one more time.

UPDATE! Jon Favreau confirmed this story through his Twitter account this morning.
