Not much here other than a poster.
Of course, when that poster is for Iron Man 2, the sequel to arguably not only one of the greatest comic book movies of all time, but also easily one of the greatest action movies of the last decade, that not much becomes … much more. Or something.
Regardless, I figured I’d jump on this news before Dustin botched it with his shameful lack of knowledge about anything Iron Man related that doesn’t involve Robert Downey Jr. As you can see, director Jon Favreau is throwing in some new toys for the sequel. It was briefly hinted at in the first one, when Tony Stark’s sidekick Rhodey looked at the first Iron Man suit and quickly commented, “Next time, baby.”
Well, that next time is here. The poster features not only just Iron Man, but also War Machine, the version of the Iron Man suit customized for Rhodey. And I have to say, it looks spot-fucking-on. Rhodey, short for James Rhodes, will be played by Don Cheadle this time around, who replaces Terrence Howard. Apparently, Cheadle gets to have all the fun.
It’s just a poster, but it’s a fairly kick-ass poster, which makes us all wish May of 2010 was that much closer.
