[Update: Get a look at the new international teaser poster HERE]
There is a new movie coming out next year, a sequel really, that many of you may not have heard of yet. It’s about this dude with a heart condition that builds this suit to help him right wrongs and fight evil. He owns a weapons manufacturing company, is a super-genius and has hot women fawning all over him – basically it’s my biography.
OK, fine, the movie is Iron Man 2 and it’s one of the most anticipated films of 2010. Long after the effects of New Moon have waned and Avatar has been released on Blu-ray, Iron Man 2 will swoop in and kick the summer movie season off with a big repulsor blast.
Every movie geek was screaming like a teenage girl at a midnight showing of Twilight when War Machine made his first appearance this year at Comic Con. Now, thanks to Yahoo! Movies, we have our first true image of War Machine, played by Don Cheadle, standing back-to-back with Iron Man in the first official poster released by Jon Favreau, Marvel Studios and Paramount.
Check it out:
Here is one more image from Toy Chest News that shows Cheadle in the War Machine armor. Sure it’s a bust shot and a marquette, but it shows good detail. It also shows us that we will get to see Cheadle’s face while in the armor, which would be consistent with the Iron Man armor models. The toy figure will not be available for sale until February 2010 but if you are into collecting movie figures, then it’s a steal at $19.99.
Iron Man 2 is going to be a show-stopper next year. The film also stars Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, of course Don Cheadle as War Machine and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts.
Update: Speaking of Black Widow and Whiplash, check out this new gallery of hi-res photos released by Paramount!
New Power source perhaps?
“I can build complex machinery, but interior design? That’s hard…”
A hi-res version of Scarlett as Black Widow. Not bad…
“In Russia, you do not build armor – armor build YOU.”
What do you think about the first decent look at War Machine and the Iron Man 2 poster in general?
