Four Character Posters + A New Chinese Iron Man 2 TV Spot
by Alex Billington
April 14, 2010
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!

Did they just have no graphic design budget or something? These posters look like something thrown together over a lunch break.

Better trailer than the US ones. The source looks crisp.

These posters are weak. Come on guys. We all have seen some amazing movie posters, these are just plain character trading cards. This is IRON MAN 2! The Dark Knight had some amazingly creative posters. These plain character photos with shitty blued photoshop sky isn't cutting it! I want moar awesome posters!

If it's a chinese TV spot, who does the page header says "new japanese iron man 2 tv spot"? When I read "A new chinese Iron man" for a second I thought it would be a new Iron man knockoff.

Strange that Iron Man 2 is coming earlier in France (28 april instead pf 7th may in the US). I don't feel any buzz around this second film (?), hope this gonna be great ! Can't wait 🙂

wow um posters lame much? Seriously WTH happened with that?! What would be cool would getting Marvels ACTUAL artists to literally draw up a movie poster. That would be awesome.

It's a wonder China hasn't banned this film. They do with most Western films.
