New Iron Man 2 Teaser Poster and Stills
12.01.09 by BJSprecher
After a glut of news about director Jon Favreau's much-anticipated sequel to Iron Man over the summer, things died down considerably. But with the winter holiday movie season fast approaching, the Iron Man 2 marketing machine is back in full swing.
Favreau teased the news that a trailer for Iron Man 2 may appear before Sherlock Holmes by retweeting a question from a fan on his Twitter account. Both actor Robert Downey, Jr., who reprises the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Scarlett Johansson, appearing for the first time as Natasha Romanof/Black Widow, have promoted the film in recent interviews. And, this month's Empire magazine is running an Iron Man 2 cover story, complete with new stills.
Now, a new teaser poster has debuted featuring Iron Man and War Machine back-to-back in a dramatic composition. For the uninitiated, the War Machine armor is a slightly more robust version of the Iron Man armor and was also made by Stark. However, War Machine is operated by Stark's close friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes, played by Terrence Howard in the first film and by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2.
