The above image from Iron Man 2 is one I had not seen yet and I know the poster below is something none of us had seen yet as Yahoo just debuted it and it appears Paramount’s promotion of Iron Man 2 is beginning to gain steam.
Last week the cover of EMPIRE (seen to the right) featured a new look at the Iron Man armor and quotes from the mag have been hitting the web like wildfire.
First off, director Jon Favreau was quoted saying, “Robert [Downey Jr.] is a real partner in the process. He’s been very involved in the screenplay. When he went away to do Sherlock Holmes he was still part of our creative process.” He added, “Even in the first film, where he was originally a hired gun playing the role, he really stepped up to rewrite scenes – he’s a great writer, too. So we really are sharing the responsibilities.”
The mag also features a full set report detailing the production, as well as all-new behind-the-scenes shots of Tony Stark and co.
On top of that, word is these two new images are rumored to be looks at what Mickey Rourke’s final Whiplash costume will look like in the film. It’s described as an “all-new, all-different” Whiplash and will hit stands on December 3.
Iron Man 2 is set to hit theaters on May 7, 2010 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Garry Shandling, Kate Mara, Clark Gregg and Leslie Bibb.
