Check This Out: The Official Domestic Iron Man 2 Poster Hits
Paramount has finally debuted the official domestic poster for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 over on MySpace. I know everyone is hyped out of their minds for this, and so am I, but this poster is bad. I guess I should've expected it considering the final posters for the first Iron Man were bad Photoshop jobs like this, too. I've also been arguing a bit with Vince from FilmDrunk this morning about why they decided to remove Mickey Rourke and put in Gwyneth Paltrow on this poster (compared to the international one), but I think it's just old school marketing ideas (apparently someone cares about Paltrow?). Anyway, check out the poster below.
Iron Man 2 takes place only six months after Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) revealed his identity as Iron Man at the end of the first movie. Mickey Rourke stars as a powerful new Russian villain named Whiplash.
Iron Man 2 is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Jon Favreau, who previously directed Made, Elf, Zathura, and the first Iron Man. The screenplay for this was also written by an actor, Justin Theroux, who became a screenwriter a few years ago and co-wrote Tropic Thunder's script. Paramount will be bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters everywhere starting on May 7th, 2010 this summer. See everyone in theaters in May for this!
