What better way to end the evening of the Oscars with a brand new trailer for our most anticipated movie of the year, Iron Man 2. Earlier this week we reported that following the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony, Robert Downey Jr. would be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and bringing with him something fans would have to stay tuned in for to see: The second, brand new Iron Man 2 trailer!

Director Jon Favreau informed the world this week that the trailer would appear online shortly after it airs as part of this evening’s Jimmy Kimmel Live so the international viewers don’t have to wait and here it finally is:

The first Iron Man 2 trailer gave us our first glimpse of Don Cheadle as War Machine and some shots of other new characters joining the franchise, including Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash. This new trailer gives us a whole bunch more!

Watch and enjoy:

Holy cow… we’ve got more of Natasha, more War Machine and yes, we were RIGHT: Suitcase collapsible armor, baby!! Our own Paul Young was the first person to deduce that there would be a version of the armor that is a long time staple of the comic book: Compact, collapsible and portable Iron Man armor.

Seeing this tonight makes me that more excited to find out who will be joining the cast of Captain America and what the characters and sets of Thor look like. It’s a good time to be a comic fans or moviegoer.

Here are a few major screen grabs for you:

What do you think of the new trailer?
