Is There Too Much Going On in Iron Man 2
Below, we have the new Iron Man 2 trailer, which offers a lot more by way of plot details than the previous trailer. Mickey Rourke is the bad guy; he's being bankrolled by Sam Rockwell; Don Cheadle will be RDJ's sidekick; and Scarlett Johansson is the notary. Pretty basic stuff, really.
And though this trailer looks very fucking nifty, there is a small fear that, in only its second movie, the Iron Man franchise is going Spider-Man 3 on us: too many characters; too many villains; and not enough focus. Bigger and louder is not always better; the best thing about the original Iron Man is that it had a compelling story, and if Iron Man 2 is a continuation of the last 20 minutes of the first movie, we may all be in trouble.
Cautious optimism, though. Cautious optimism.
