While Twitter can be a fun outlet for complaining about movies and stalking celebrities, it is also a useful tool that filmmakers use to share updates about their latest projects. Earlier today, director Robert Rodriguez shared the first photos of Josh Brolin as Dwight in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The character was originally played by Clive Owen in the first Sin City. While the director hasn't really made it clear why he re-cast a few of the roles (he also swapped out Devon Aoki for Jamie Chung as Miho), this new incarnation of Dwight looks like quite a force to be reckoned with. Take a look at these photos, along with the filmmaker's tweets.

And here's a quick photo touch up I do to set a tone for the actors. (Probably won't be raining in final movie) twitter.com/Rodriguez/stat…— Robert Rodriguez (@Rodriguez) February 16, 2013
