New Iron Man 2 Viral Clue Only Points to Tony Stark So Far?
Yesterday a new poster for Iron Man 2 hit the web featuring Mickey Rourke as the villain Whiplash. The background of the poster contained newspaper clippings and magazine covers all about Tony Stark, used to give Rourke somewhat of a motive for this (although I'm not sure if that's the case in the movie). Anyway, following that debut, SuperHeroHype was sent what they called the first "clue" in a new Iron Man 2 viral game. The photo they were sent contains another newspaper clipping (just like the ones on the back of the poster), with the word "Secret" highlighted, and an arrow pointing to some text. But what does it all mean?
Before we continue, here's the photo they were sent with the first clue, whatever that means. Take a look:
Let's put together some basic details. First off, that definitely is Tony Stark to the right, despite that some people think it's Bruce Banner (it's not). Secondly, the title of the article in the photo is: "The Secret life of Mr. Stark". That makes me think we may get to see a little bit of his "secret" life or, potentially, even join his organization. Which reminds me of another viral for Iron Man 2 that hit in July. Pepper Potts put up a "memo" from Stark and included a link that said if you want to be hired by Stark Industries, you could sign-up on the site (an easy way to get a whole bunch of emails). But are these two connected in some way?
Given that this photo hit yesterday, I did some searching around the web to see if I could find any updates. Unfortunately, no one has figured it out yet. Or there's the possibility that it can't be figured out yet until we get more pieces of a bigger puzzle. The text in the article doesn't help and the arrow doesn't really point to anything. I mentioned that the Whiplash poster has a background of newspaper clippings. In this official photo of Rourke on set, his wall has clippings just like it. And you'll notice there's one at the top middle that is this exact photo. In fact, that arrow means nothing because it's a part of the original article. So our only clue is the highlighted word "secret" so far. Let us know if you find anything! Any idea what this means?
