Iron Man 2

Oh hell yes! Empire has debuted a second new teaser poster for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 and it's just as badass as the first one. This time there's no War Machine, it's just Tony Stark solo, staring you down like he wants to put a repulsor ray right through your face. Although I do hope we get to see one of these posters for War Machine eventually as well, with Don Cheadle's face instead of Robert Downey Jr's. I'm loving the early marketing for Iron Man 2, they're definitely pushing the "new suit, new enemies, same attitude" badass aspect quite a bit. And I can't wait to see the official trailer for this up next! Check out the full poster below.

Iron Man 2 Poster

Iron Man 2 takes place only "six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man" at the end of the first movie. Jon Favreau is directing again from a screenplay written by actor-turned-writer Justin Theroux. Iron Man 2 stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, and Don Cheadle as Rhodey. Favreau revealed that the first official trailer would be attached to Sherlock Holmes this Christmas, so be on the lookout for that next month. Paramount is bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters on May 7th next summer.

I like the first teaser poster better.

Film-Book dot Com on Dec 3, 2009


Dom? Really?! They full on SUCK? You gotta give SOME reason why, because honestly, I think both of them are badass! They might have jumped the gun putting war machine up on the previous one, but they're both sick! These posters put my movie adrenaline into gear! You don't know what you're talking about - oh wait, you're not talking at all.

JakeTheSnake on Dec 3, 2009

Whats Badass about a poster of Robert Downey Jr in the iron man costume im afraid it dose not impress me one little bit fucking shit. 🙁

Cineprog on Dec 3, 2009


Like I said about the first poster, I don't understand what you like or is "badass" about these at all. These might as well be for the first Iron Man. He's in the same suit just looking at you. Please be professional and learn how to seperate your fan boy excitement from unoriginal posters. You should say something like, "this poster gets me excited for the trailer/movie" or "it's good to see Stark back again."

number 3 and I park our cars in the same garage.

Victor on Dec 3, 2009


I don't like how bulky the suit is for this movie. The one before was sleek which made it that much more bad ass. Adding bulk doesn't up the bad ass factor. It only ups the "Ow my back hurts" factor 😉 But I cant wait for this film. Mickey Rourke is one of my favorite actors. I wouldn't mind seeing him in a poster. And of course the beautiful Scarlett Johansson. And hell why not Sam Rockwell?

Maxx on Dec 3, 2009


the poster that featured war machine & iron-man back to back was fucking brilliant,this one is just good,lets see a poster of scarlett johansson aka the black widow she's a fucking sexy babe.really can't wait for this film need a trailer soon please.i'm sure this film will be better than the first.

i like the first poster. this one is just ok. why so grumpy, downey? a more heroic pose would have been nicer.

CL on Dec 3, 2009


Anyone know what some of the differences are between the Iron Man suit and the War Machine suit? Can War Machine fly too, or is he more the artillery land-based type?

peloquin on Dec 3, 2009


@1,2,3- You three are idiots. I like the other poster better but this is still great work.

CLZ on Dec 3, 2009


I think this must be for us fangirls, since apparently it's not working for some of the guys. It got my attention, though, I'll say that! I'd LOVE to get my hands on one of these...this would be the most kick-ass Christmas present for my sister.

RStewie on Dec 3, 2009


Noobs will post their nonsense being the loser trolls that they are. The posters are fantastic. But I don't care about posters...I want to see the movie. Of course, those same noobs will be loud in the theater, not turn off their cell phone, try to film the movie...and all that other geeky loser stuff noobs with no life, no girlfriend, no personality, and no class noobs are so talentedly known for doing.

tyrascilee on Dec 3, 2009


These posters are unorigional garbage. Full frame images of the lead actor with no indication of tone of the film or emotion besides trying to look badass, which only has been done in every Superhero film ever fucking made. Get higher standards man.

shadow on Dec 3, 2009


Umm... what do you expect from a freakin "TEASER" poster.

John Boy on Dec 3, 2009


I found a link that has a leaked trailer from comicon of iron man

K-Nile on Dec 3, 2009


#23 exactly. Alex shouldn't get worked up over a teaser poster that shows nothing about the movie. The poster isn't good or bad, it's just there, but certainly no reason to get worked up.

branden on Dec 3, 2009


#24 I saw that 5 min. of footage. I'm still upset about Nick Fury though. Nothing against Sammy J, I'll just have to pretend he's a white guy with a really, really, really, really, really dark tan. 😉

Typhoon on Dec 3, 2009


Poster looks terrible. I'm so goddamn tired of "staring at you hardcore" posters.

Peter on Dec 3, 2009


Looks Cool....or "bad ass" I masterbated to this poster, I used my tears from your negative comments as lube. Thank you

I am Ron Burgundy? on Dec 3, 2009


its just used of the first movie. LAZY

sMITHY on Dec 3, 2009


Who photoshopped Downey's head on an Iron Man suit?

SlashBeast on Dec 3, 2009


sooooooo...... is that the badass poster?

Elliot on Dec 3, 2009


i like the first one more

Said on Dec 3, 2009


it is certainly better than the last one. That one looked like 2 homos dressed for halloween.

future gyno man on Dec 3, 2009


Really, Alex? "Badass?"

Mr.Big on Dec 3, 2009


I can't believe THIS many people are so distraught by my use of the word "badass." It's just a frickin' title people, who really cares! I think it's a badass poster, but if you don't, oh well. At least it's a cool poster and you can see it and that's that. Why is it such a huge deal?

Alex Billington on Dec 3, 2009


#24 Yea i relized that to how nick fury is Sammy J but i think since you see Sammy J as Nick Fury there going with the approach of Ultimate Nick Fury who happens to be Black and its undestandable haha

K-Nile on Dec 3, 2009


#26 whoops that last one was to 26 not myself haha whoops

K-Nile on Dec 3, 2009


Why is Tony Stark's head so small? Did the graphic designer just fall asleep halfway through?

Ragweed on Dec 3, 2009


@Alex It's not the fact that you used the word badass, the entire first paragraph is you gushing about it. It gets me excited for the film aswell to be sure sure, but that's only because it is Iron Man. On it's own merit, the poster is average at best, showing nothing new as far as the film (the one with Warmachine at least did that), nothing unique, not a single interesting original aspect to it. Top it off the background is an uninteresting cloudy sky texture. And we are also led to beleive that from the shoulders down it's completely pitch black behind him. The thing looks like a fan poster thought up by a High School kid. In other words, be excited for the movie, show us the new posters, but don't hype it up to be amazing unless it does something new or has a unique composition to help it stand out from the pack. Were this any other film, everybody would be labeling this poster generic and bland.

shadow on Dec 3, 2009


the area where the suit meets his head doesn't quite work, but I didn't notice that until further inspection. other poster was better. this one just "gets me excited" lol

dave13 on Dec 3, 2009


Gotta say, not as impressed by this poster merely due to his expression. Looks like he was going for anger, but somehow got a little mixed up with grim resolve that leaked a smidge of bitterness. That, or he is super, super constipated. That said, it's really not a bad poster, I just like the others a fair bit more! I'm definitely looking forward to a better full-on poster of War Machine (twas the only comic I ever collected).

case on Dec 3, 2009


How about we lighten up and not analyze a pick apart every word Alex uses....I see this all the time you guys jump on the admin (mostly being alex) for the stupidest shit. Its a movie site get a life and stop blowing shit outta proportion. But yeah these posters arent THAT good, mediocre at best.

Cody on Dec 3, 2009


ITS PRETTY STANDARD. BUT IT MAY BE SEMI-BADASS, to some, mainly cause Downey Jnr is da fukin man HAHAHA. Come on, we need some more intelligent comments on this site. Esp related to big budget movies... We are all interested in the same shit. (Shaun of the Dead quote required..... FirstShowing readers, "Sort Your Fucking Life Out"

Complaining about posters=hilarious........keep it up ladies.

Why do you keep deleting comments?

Will Dearborn on Dec 4, 2009


Sorry, double-post, thought the first didn't go through.

Will Dearborn on Dec 4, 2009


This poster is BADASS.

Fisherr on Dec 7, 2009


@33-Alex, Take it easy mate, didn't mean for you to go postal on here. All i was saying is, when i see "Badass Poster" in the heading, im expecting something new and crazy. Not Tony Stark without his helmet. Don't get me wrong, it looks good. But if your in this industry/business you gotta have thicker skin buddy. Other than that, keep up the good work...

Mr.Big on Dec 7, 2009


#38... it's a big ass metal suit over his body. i think that would make anyones head look small.

J on Dec 8, 2009


#17 you are just mad b/c your mom is over at my house blowing me.

MONEYSHOT on Dec 8, 2009


sorry... meant #37
