Empire Mag's Badass Iron Man 2 Cover Shot Debuts Online!
Now this is a badass cover shot! Empire has debuted their newest cover containing a never-before-seen shot of Iron Man from Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2. With the trailer on the way, it looks like Paramount may be getting ready to start hyping up the sequel, which is the first movie due out next summer (on May 7th), before this year comes to end. Empire's got a "full Iron Man 2 set report plus behind the scenes photos" in this issue. So if you're not already subscribed, then pick this up when it hits newsstands. As they say: "If you’re not as excited about Stark’s comeback as we are then you’re definitely getting coal in your stocking."
Iron Man 2 takes place only "six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man" at the end of the first movie. Jon Favreau is directing again from a screenplay written by actor-turned-writer Justin Theroux. Iron Man 2 stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, and Don Cheadle as Rhodey. Favreau revealed that the first official trailer would be attached to Sherlock Holmes this Christmas, so be on the lookout for that next month. Paramount is bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters on May 7th next summer.
