Only 23 more days left (although all of Europe gets it an entire week before us)! To continue building more last minute hype for Marvel's Iron Man 2, I'm posting four international character posters that hit earlier today on EcranLarge. We already saw the Tony Stark one last year, but there's new ones for Whiplash, War Machine, Black Widow and even Pepper Potts. There's also an awesome new Chinese TV spot for Iron Man 2 (via The Playlist) that doesn't feature much new footage, but the CGI does look a lot more finished, and boy does this movie look sleek. Check out Stark's crazy new triangular arc reactor, too! Find all of it below.
Watch the new Chinese TV spot for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 first:
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 the Tropic Thunder 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!
