Paramount Pictures has revealed the first official poster for the highly-anticipated mega-sequel, Iron Man 2 via Yahoo!. The poster is fairly basic, as most first posters tend to be. However, there is one fairly exciting addition to the poster that will have fans buzzing, and that of course, is War Machine. This, our first real glance at the popular character and creation of friend-turned-foe James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), simply shows War Machine standing back-to-back with Iron Man, gun ready and eyes glowing red. It is expected that Rhodes creates the suit in order to combat Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) creation when Stark refuses to offer his own suit as a military weapon.
Iron Man 2 also stars Gwyneth Paltrow who is returning as Pepper Potts, and Samuel L. Jackson back as Nick Fury. New members of the impressive cast include Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.
