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!

Ya it sucks, but can't help but still love it. It has sexiness and awesomeness and it should be coated in chocolate just to make it that much better. :nod:

Not liking it at all. Why did they remove Mickey Rourke/Whiplash as compared to the international poster? And instead add a second Iron Man?! Importance given to displaying Scarlett Johansson/Black Widow's behind (in both posters) is duly noted! By following the same formula from the poster of Iron Man 1, comes off as being lazy. For second time around they should have done something more different.

Is it just me, or is anyone else get this weird vibe that even though War Machine is being featured heavily in posters and the trailer, that we are really going to see him in the final battle of the movie?

poster isnt terrible but its cliche and means nothing. the movie is about iron man vs whiplash and ALL of those other characters on the posters are merely secondary/tertiary...yet they feature prominently while the villain is missing entirely. The actual poster says to me "this is iron man...the drama"

@#8. The Dark Knight was more or less about Batman vs. the Joker so why would they add in 2 face? Harvey Dent actually added another element to the story line of Batman & so in my opinion I thought it was good. Having Cheadle take on War Machine is also a good addition in my opinion. I enjoy seeing Iron Man fight alone but I'd also like to see some teamwork.

It's a simple poster, but it's a great one. Shows you everything you wanna see in the poster, and attracts a lot of attention. Better this, than amazing well crafted posters with amazing artwork that show nothing of what the movie is about.

It's a Scarlett Johansson TnA poster, I liked the one where she was farting fire better. The design of the posters so far have been pretty snide. One good thing with well done painted posters is that the light source can be constant unlike in this photomashup. But really, most cinema goers don't care about graphic design, there will be few posters from this era that are regarded as classics.

Yawn. Another uninspired poster for this movie.
SlashBeast on Mar 31, 2010
This has a Star Wars poster vibe to it. At least the bottom of it with the characters and the light in the middle does. I don't think they featured Scarlett Johansen's features enough.
Well.... on Mar 31, 2010
I like the poster.
