Iron Man 2 Poster

Paramount has debuted a brand new international "theatrical" poster for Iron Man 2 today on Yahoo. I'm not actually that impressed with the posters for this movie so far. The first two teaser posters were awesome, but the follow-up two character posters were pretty bland, and now this one arrives. It's the same design as the final posters from the first Iron Man movie, with a bunch of people thrown all over it, but I just think it's too messy. There's that distracting explosion and a semi-circle curve of actors Photoshopped together, plus other odd-sized elements pieced together. It's exciting, sure, but I don't think it's a great poster. Thoughts?

International Iron Man 2 Poster

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!

    they need to have someone else design their posters. They have all sucked, even the first movies posters were not that great.
  • Xerxex
    reminds me of the LOTR posters.
  • Conrad
    I kinda dig this poster to be honest... I like how it dribbles down from Iron Man and War Machine to the rest of them and then Whiplash as the villain rupturing from the explosion. Can't fucking waaaaaaiiiiittt!!!!!! This and "Inception" are my two most anxiously awaiting flicks of the summer....!
  • This poster is weak. It needs more Scarlet, http://www.flickr.com/photos/30693123@N04/3299741906/ less explosions.

    When did posters start winning awards? Get over it...
  • Bee
    It amazes me that they should have the best designers in the business and the best they could come up with is this hot mess. I've seen better artwork on fansites. The photoshopping is bad: prime examples, Scarlett's freaky shaped boob and Gwyneths face.
  • Crump's Brother
    That's it, I'm not seeing the movie!! (kidding) Needs more of Scarlett's ass.

    Lmao At first i thought it was a Star Wars movie poster. They could have done better. Really disappointing.

    #5 lol
  • cintilla
    Poster looks great.
  • It looks like Scarlett is doing a giant flaming fart. I don't know why they don't do painted posters for the film.
  • ryderup
    Iron Man should have painmted posters. This one looks bad, like a bad videogame.
  • Riki
    Fart + flame = bad poster. I think.
  • DiR3cT
    Well i've seen poster that aren't as good so it's not that bad.
  • It is a movie that originated from a comic book written and penned for kids. What do you expect?
  • dom
    Number 1 was spot on - the only half decent poster I ever saw for this film was this one - http://armchaireditor.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/ironman-poster-rough.jpg (shit low quality though) - this is also very similar - http://armchaireditor.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/ironman-poster-rough.jpg

    I got two views on this poster, good and bad. i agree to #6 and #10 😀 There is one thing that i don't get, why did they change the iron man's light thing on his chest?? One i think they are trying to copy superman OR it might be a triangle upside down.....rings any bells, The Illumanati..........maybe.
  • Rider1
    There is another thing i just discovered, the explosion is like a circle and Mickey Rourke is standing in the middle with the light on his chest......... something like an eye or shall I say Lucifers eye.
  • Shizzlefits
    You know what would be cool? If they used that half face poster from the first film, Like this: (http://www.collider.com/uploads/imageGallery/Iron_Man_movie /iron_man_teaser_movie_poster_onesheet.jpg) and somehow incorporated a half face of war machine because who doesn't love some war machine? It'd be simple and to the point and almost always, simple = badass.
  • SlashBeast
    Wow, I didn't think they could get more uninspired than the other posters for this movie, but this just takes the cake.
  • DANtheMAN
    heh heh....looks like the explosion's comin from Scarlett's giant badonkadonk... ...other than that, it looks like they spent a maximum of 10 minutes working on this poster
  • Glass
    Lol, whoever designed the posters for this movie should be fired.
  • Fisherr
    Not bad.
