Favreau Shares Cowboys & Aliens Camera Test Image

With Iron Man 2 having graduated and sent out to fend for itself, director Jon Favreau has turned all his attention to his next gig, the sci-fi fantasy Cowboys & Aliens.

Favreau is no stranger to tweeting treats connected to his current projects and his latest is no exception. The first picture preview was uploaded via his Twitter account today and reveals someone in cowboy gear whose appearance is a silhouette against a strong back light (nod to Indiana Jones!)

Is this Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell or Daniel Craig? Highly unlikely, I’m afraid. Chances are the camera tests are being performed with stand-ins as there is little need for the principal actors to subject themselves to the process.

The cowboy outfit on display, and the unusual wristband on the right hand, are likely production props that will be seen in some form in the film. Has anyone here read the graphic novel and can explain what that wristband may or may not be?
