Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 Gets Another Badass Teaser Poster
Oh hell yes! Empire has debuted a second new teaser poster for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 and it's just as badass as the first one. This time there's no War Machine, it's just Tony Stark solo, staring you down like he wants to put a repulsor ray right through your face. Although I do hope we get to see one of these posters for War Machine eventually as well, with Don Cheadle's face instead of Robert Downey Jr's. I'm loving the early marketing for Iron Man 2, they're definitely pushing the "new suit, new enemies, same attitude" badass aspect quite a bit. And I can't wait to see the official trailer for this up next! Check out the full poster below.
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.
