Jon Favreau's Director's Chair

Exactly as Jon Favreau promised on twitter, the first official photo from Iron Man 2 has been unveiled tonight over at USA Today. Although I wasn't expecting to see much, this is actually an awesome first photo, giving us a big hint that Tony Stark may be building a "Hall of Armor" of Iron Man suits, just like in the comics. But of course, we won't know more details about that or even know how many different suits he has until we get to see Iron Man 2 next summer. "It's never easy with summer movies, but we're trying to keep as much a surprise as possible," Favreau says. Without further ado, check out the first official photo!

Iron Man 2 takes place "six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man" at the end of the first movie. Favreau explains that the story this time will indeed involve a little bit of that public relations crisis. "How many superheroes are open about their true identities?" Favreau asks. "We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences — in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore." As for the villain(s) or how much we'll get to see of S.H.I.E.L.D., Favreau won't be talking about that. But it's good to keep everything so mysterious, right? I know it definitely makes me more excited!

Cool! I've got faith in Jon Favreau and this franchise. Went into the first one with pretty much no expectations and came out pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to the sequel. SS

I find it funny how in the first one he had a holographic monitors... seeing those glass panels is such a downgrade! hahaha Either way, that picture doesn't say much. Doesn't build hype but I'm still looking foward to it next summer!

"Whats in that box you got there, Mr Stark…?" My very first thought when I saw that box was of the Mandarin's rings. 🙂

Nice first picture, hope the movie will be as entertaining as the first one.

cine_phil on May 1, 2009


four fucking armours,@ 14 a hulk cameo would be fucking sweet,i can't wait till next year i need a trailer for christmas.

"How many superheroes are open about their true identities?" Favreau asks. Here we go...Expect a Civil War movie after The Avengers.

Fisherr on May 1, 2009


That picture says it all.

DCompose on May 1, 2009


@ 21, i dont think we'd get a civil war movie even if they wanted cuz spider man is important to that, and i think sony is to selfish with the rights haha

Bboy movie goer on May 1, 2009


of course its the mandarin's quest rings, or one of them, in the box haha sweet first picture

furstrated on May 3, 2009


there should be a civil war movie where all the corresponding heroes fight together(including spiderman) that would be a great hit. as for ironman 2, the mandarin should definitely be the main bad guy

if the glow in the center of the suit is suppose to come from his chest.. then why are they glowing without him in them? =P

Jon Favreau is such a surprise as a director and I am confident that this sequel will outdo the first. Imagine, good cast + good director + good script = what could go wrong?
