Check These Out: Two New Character Posters for Iron Man 2
Last night, the second insanely awesome trailer for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 hit the web in glorious high definition and fans went crazy over how fantastic it looks. To spice things up more, Paramount has debuted two new character posters - one for Iron Man and one for War Machine - and a standee (seen above) for Iron Man 2 over on Apple. That standee is one of those giant cardboard cutouts you'll see on display at your local movie theater sometime in the next few weeks. The other two posters look pretty awesome as well, but they feel a little too much like cardboard backing on toy figures I'd buy at Walmart. Check them out 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 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!

So if Robert Downey's/Tony Stark's Iron Man suit's eyes and chest glow blue, and Don Cheadle's/Col. Rhodes' glow red... ...does that mean Sam Jackson's/Nick Fury's suit would glow purple?

they do look like toys. the only thing that worries me about IM2 is the cgi. Hopefully, the finished product is up to par.

awesome trailer....but Im no feeling these posters at all!! They look way too stiff and yes, much like a toy ad rather than a poster... Props to Favreau on this and his recent Voice work on Star Wars Clone Wars (he played a FCKn Mandeloarian in the classic fett armor!! How kick ass is that!? VERY!)
