I thought we'd have to wait until tomorrow night to see the trailer for director John Favreau's highly anticipated film Iron Man 2 -- which is supposed to be attached to Avatar. But Paramount knew the power couldn't be contained and they sent us this overload of fanboy porn a day early. I dare you to try and watch this and not drool! There is no doubt Favreau has brought the goods and stepped up every aspect of the game for the sequel to Iron Man.
The trailer features Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johannson kicking ass and taking names as Black Widow, Mickey Rourke plotting and taking revenge as Whiplash, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and Don Cheadle as Rhodey Rhodes/War Machine. The only one missing in action is Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer(Stark’s rival weapons manufacturer).
The trailer opens up much like the footage we saw at Comic-Con, with Gary Shandling's character asking Stark to turn over the Iron Man weapon... well he is Iron Man, so NO deal! And just like the footage we saw at the Con, they save the best for last! Only this time we get double the firepower with Iron Man and War Machine back to back!
Paramount has also released the film's official plot synopsis:
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero "Iron Man", reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In "Iron Man 2", the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.
Iron Man 2 hits theaters May 7th!
