TWO Final Epic Iron Man Posters Revealed - Updated!
To top off an incredible trailer and the immense amount of excitement surrounding the upcoming Iron Man movie, Paramount has released a final well-designed poster for the film. We've already previously featured a number of the great Iron Man posters that have hit and now it's time to give some extra special love to the last one. While it is (unfortunately) yet another "floating heads" poster, it really breaks the normal bounds and falls into the category of being a very well-designed and good looking "floating heads" poster. If you're still excited for Iron Man (and who isn't right now) then check out this final poster for the film due out this May.
Ryan over at CanMag says that it has a very George Lucas feeling to it. Do you agree? I'm not sure I'd call it Lucas, but it does definitely feel very, very epic. This movie is really leading up to be something amazing, and I truly can't wait. Thanks to IMPAwards for finding this poster originally.
Update: A few hours after this poster appeared on IMPAwards, our friends over at Cinematical popped up with a second different final poster that has a very similar style. Apparently the one above is the domestic poster and the new one below is the slightly different international poster. There are minor changes, but each is still worth taking a good look at.
Which of these two do you like more? The US poster above or the international poster below?
As I said with the last Iron Man poster, we'll try and get a few to giveaway if you guys like them enough. What do you think of them? Good or bad or just mediocre?
Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau, of Zathura and Elf previously. The movie was written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Mark Fergus (Children of Men, First Snow), and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, First Snow). Iron Man hits theaters everywhere this summer on May 2nd.

Yeah, it's got the Lucas groove going.

Think of how much cooler that would be if it were hand drawn. I do have to admit though, great composition.

They should do a head count over a Lucasfilms Art Department to make sure everyone is accounted for because I do believe someone over at that operation has gone rouge.

Word Correction Rogue instead of Rouge Always get those to mix up

Like the ones before it better with just Ironman on them. After all....its his movie.

This poster does a much better job of humanizing things a little bit - let's audiences know it's not just a robot movie but there is some real talent behind it. Personally, I love all things Iron Man, so this one gets a big thumbs up from me. The only part of the marketing that I think falls down is the logo treatment for "Iron Man." Kind of flat. I love the circuity logo in the comics now. Would have been cool if they went with that. Or even if they did the solid metal approach, but made it really, really shiny. I don't know. If you're able to get your hands on some promo copies, I would LOVE to frame on in my office!

Maybe a poor man's George Lucas... My favorite is still the one with the three suits you posted here: http://www.firstshowing.net/2008/02/28/another-full-iron-man-trailer-launches-holy-sht/

I could not be any more excited about this movie than I am right now. Every taste we get is better than the last, and this poster completely conveys what it needs to. Favreau and Downey aren't just on top of the game, they're rewriting the rulebook.

I like them both, probably like the US one better though.
Stephen on Mar 7, 2008
Wow, I really like both of the posters!
Jess on Mar 7, 2008
Those are pretty classy looking. I like the upped level of contrast for both of them. And yes, it's very star wars-esque.

looks like standard Direct-to-Video box cover art work, not very inspired. I like the 1 suit and the 3 suits posters more then these

Both are good but I would say the International one by a bit because it shows some explosions over the city. However, I perfer the format of the people better in the first one.
Ryan on Mar 7, 2008
both are amazing and look epic and cant wait for this to hit the theaters, if i had to choose one it would be the 1st one just something about it catches my eye, it does have the George Lucas style to it.
Curtis on Mar 7, 2008
both are butt ugly.. they both look like posters used for straight to dvd sci-fi movies..
claes on Mar 7, 2008
It would have been kick butt with just Iron Man and a totally black background.
