One of the big draws to tonight’s 82nd Academy Awards ceremony was the fact that a brand new trailer for Jon Favreau‘s mega-sequel, Iron Man 2, would be debuting after the broadcast on Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s annual Oscar special.
The promised Iron Man 2 trailer did indeed debut, introduced by Tony stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., and heads exploded. Instead of cutting a trailer that mostly consists of stuff we’ve seen, they gave us a whole lot of new goodies. In this second trailer you’ll see Whiplash meeting Justin Hammer for the first time, Black Widow in action, a new line of military suits, more of the epic battle that sees Iron Man and War Machine taking on and a bunch of these new generic suits, a possible glimpse at Iron Man taking a shot at War Machine, and even Tony Stark’s fancy new briefcase that just happens to fuse on to his body as another suit!
Put on your own personal super-suit and frolic over to the other side to check out the brand new trailer!
The first trailer was released back in December as an early Christmas present, and that one was pretty amazing to see. Fortunately for all of us, this trailer matches its predecessor’s level of awesome and keeps our excitement soaring high with only a couple more months to wait.
Iron Man 2 will be released on May 7, 2010 and stars Downey Jr. as Tony 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.
