Iron Man Too

Here's the first round in the eventual marketing fusillade for next summer's Iron Man 2 -- the teaser poster. For those not versed in Marvel minutia, the red-and-gold guy in front is still the titular titan inhabited by Robert Downey, and the guy behind him is trusty sidekick James Rhodes (played by Terrence Howard last time, Don Cheadle here), a.k.a. War Machine, a.k.a. Another Toy to License.

Given the overwhelming critical and popular success of the first flick, they really have the wind at their backs for this installment, and are well positioned to set up the impending Avengers jam-flick they're planning. Jump over to Yahoo! for more pics from the sequel, including looks at Mickey Rourke as the villainous Whiplash, and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

Can't say I think too highly of the Whiplash outfit (the term "sucks" leaps to mind) and Rockwell as Hammer strikes me as a wee bit on the young side. But I'm nevertheless really looking forward to this, and Thor and Cap and, of course, that which lies beyond!
