Second Iron Man 2 Viral Clue Uncovered, But Nothing Found?

Second Iron Man 2 Viral Clue

Last week, SHH was sent over the "first clue" in an Iron Man 2 viral ARG that's on the verge of kicking off. Today, ScreenRant was sent over the "second clue" containing another mysterious newspaper clipping with more highlighted text. But has anyone figured it out yet? Doesn't look like it. However, there may be a lot of info hidden in this one that we're just missing. Look closely, including at the image beneath the article, to see if you can figure out what this is hinting at. So far no one seems to know what it's pointing to. But we do know that the two highlighted words so far are "Secret" and "Stark" so it's definitely leading somewhere!

Iron Man 2 Viral Clue

While this image comes from ScreenRant this time, the guys at Latino Review mention some very interesting things as well. "If you're big on riddles, be sure to check out the larger version of the article page (by clicking the image [above]) so that no clue goes unnoticed. And is it just me or does the picture of a man 'walking on air' beneath the article seem to be a hint about something?" They're right, but that still doesn't help. I'm just not sure what all of this means yet. Are we supposed to sit and wait until another new "clue" arrives next week? And we'll only figure this out once we have all the pieces of the puzzle? Or is the solution out there?

    maybe the clippings are just showing what happened between iron man one and two. and obviously we know that who ever is holding these clippings has a grudge or even some twisted obsession with the fact that tony stark it iron man. if whiplash thinks the stark family is a bunch of thieves and murderers like in the comic-con footage. then these might just show his obsession with revenge.

    I'm honestly thinking it has to do with Stark's alcoholism. The "secret" behind the superhero is that he's human and has an addiction. The picture on the bottom for the second release is a person in a dress. Maybe it's one of Stark in a drunken stupor with a paparazzi shot of him doing something nutzoid - like running around in a dress completely smashed and hopping across the water...

    That's actually a girl in the picture.

    E. Avila is actually Ernie Avila a set designer for Iron Man 2 J. Rothwell is James Rothwell a animatics for Iron Man 2 plus his working on Thor also below the article it has a name J.M. Eddins Jr. / The Washington Times. J.M. Eddins Jr. is an actual Washington Times staff member.

    Trailer is coming out in 11 days - sherlock holmes - should be nothing short of HLYFCK! The legs look too manly.

    mickey rourke as the character whiplash knows something obviously but what?... i think whiplash is someone from stark's past who knows of his secret and maybe ANOTHER secret from stark's past that he is ashamed of or something along those lines... now whiplash is out to get him for something that occurred between the two during their past

    They already released an IM2 trailer at comic con. It had whiplash, B.W, and iron man, along with a quick appearence of war machine. But THOR and HULK weren't in it. 1: There was already a hulk/ ironman cameo on the hulk 2008 dvd. They probobly wont do a 2nd. 2: Thor and Iron Man?! When have they...wait...nevermind. You know, now that you think about it, it kinda makes a little bit of sence to do a thor cameo but not with IM2. Instead, do a Captain America cameo in IM2. They had one going in the first iron man but they (4 some stupid reason) stopped it. They SHOWED THE SHIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!?!?! They are putting nick fury in IM2. make him have somtin to do with cap. They've had their words before. Then, when they finally release the Captain america movie, have a thor cameo in that. Then in the thor movie, have like a wasp or antman/giantman cameo in that. (THE AVENGERS) THE AVENGERS MOVIE (WITH THIS LAYOUT) WILL BE HERE SOON ENOUGH!!!!!

    There are numbers spreak throughout the article in an odd sequence and that could be a nod to Thor like someone up top said.

    tony stark is nothing more than a drunk(a rich drunk.)i don't care thor or the hulk is in it(it would be cool though.)JUST GIVE ME THE FUCKING TRAILER.
  • JakeTheSnake
    #12 iamironmanfan Thor comes out before captain America lol.

    I think the "floating on air" is a hint at Justin Hammer, his conflict with Stark and what I think will be a big part of the plot in IM2, I'm very much looking forward to this.

    The photo is a low angle shot taken at the National Capital Columns. http://www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/collections/columns.html The person who is burned out appears to be a little girl, which would explain the skirt with sneakers. the reason she looks bigger is because of the low angle. I'm starting to think that the picture has nothing to do with the clue and is just there to throw us off.
  • mxr5150
    Doesn't Justin Hammer reside on a 'floating villa'? "Floating on air"? Anyone? It has to be related to him, mark my words. It almost looks like it would be an advertisement of his, business should be good for Hammer now that Stark is out of the weapons industry.

    Could it be Hercules?
