Just a few days ago an amazing new poster for Iron Man 2 featuring the titular armor-suited hero standing back-to-back with War Machine was released. It marked the first time we got an official look at War Machine (as he’ll appear in the film), who’s real identity is Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes, being played by Don Cheadle (after he replaced Terrence Howard).

The poster caused geekgasms everywhere amongst superhero movie fans (I know Screen Rant‘s readers were particularly psyched by it, anyway :) ), and rightfully so. However, John Favreau, Marvel Studios and Paramount haven’t just left it at that: Some brand new images from Iron Man 2 were released not long after the poster was, now another new poster has been released.

The international teaser (as it’s being dubbed) shows just Iron Man on his own, but this time de-masked. It looks a little strange at first glance, but maybe that’s just because we don’t usually see Stark wearing the suit without his mask on. Nonetheless, Mr. Stark looks intense – even mad, you could say – and indication of similar things to come when we check back in on the adventures of Iron Man in the sequel.

Anyway, without further ado, check out the brand new Iron Man 2 poster, courtesy of Empire:

Like you needed another reason to be excited about this particular superhero sequel, but there you have it…

Just as a reminder, Iron Man 2 stars Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Samuel L. Jackson. It’s directed by Jon Favreau and written by Justin Theroux.

Sound off in the comments on what you think about the poster and how much you’re looking forward to the film. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
