Just a day after the first official Iron Man 2 poster was released, showing off War Machine to us all (Read: War Machine Appears In First Official â€˜Iron Man 2â€² Poster), Paramount has now put out a few new images to dust it with powdered sugar, so to speak. The images aren’t mind-blowing or anything, but we do get a couple of new looks at Tony Stark doing Tony Stark things and a pretty cool new picture of Whiplash in what looks like a fairly uncomfortable room decorated with Tony Stark news articles scattered about.
No one quite knows what the exact storyline will be yet, but it will definitely include the trials and tribulations of Tony Stark after he came out publicly that he’s Iron Man. This attracts unbelievable attention — of both good and bad varieties — to the already recognized Stark, including the scary Whiplash and Justin Hammer, who is now the main man when it comes to weapons dealing after Stark Industries stopped manufacturing them. As mentioned in the War Machine poster story, the Government will also likely be on Stark’s back to hand over the secrets of his incredible suit technology. However, until an official synopsis is put out, these are all mostly assumptions.
Iron Man 2 will be released on May 7, 2010 and stars Robert Downey Jr. as Stark/Iron Man, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
