[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!

Iron Man 2 is going to be a show stopper next year. Unless Favreau kills off Tony Stark, makes War Machine a bi-sexual or something else completely off kilter, then I predict it will be a huge blockbuster. It’s safe to say that Iron Man helped to re-establish Robert Downy Jr. as a hot commodity in Hollywood with his performance as Tony Stark. Iron Man 2 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.

  1. Sure this movie will be sweet, but saying its going to be like the dark knight was to batman begins is a tad pretentious. I mean I love Iron Man and read the the comics as a kid but I just don’t see this movie being a “gamechanger” like the Dark Knight was. For me I’m just looking at the most basic observations… Iron Man relies heavily on CGI which the Dark Knight does not. Tony Stark sure is a normal guy just like Bruce Wayne except the fact that he has a super powered exoskeleton that fires lasers and rockets… Also Tony Stark is no ninja like Mr. Wayne is. Also I just see the world Chris Nolan created in these past two movies is so much more believable and grounded in reality. Iron Man of course is supposed to be set in the present as well but it just isn’t as believable when you have a flying suit that can shoot lasers out of his chest and uses some sort of energy source to power his heart….

    Anyways I agree with Ken J about Bales acting, it has seriously gone down since The Dark Knight. (Public Enemies, Terminator salvation). It almost looks like acting is a chore for him. I wish he had RDJs mentality. Also my buddy knows his agent and says apparently Bale is a complete AHole.. (shouldn’t come as much of a surprise)

  2. Iron Man did NOT rely heavily on CGI. Favreau insisted on as much practical effect as possible. Only a few scenes used CGI — the fight with Iron Monger or when the machines aided Tony in putting on the armor. Favreau wasn’t a big believer in CGI until Iron Man was complete. IM2 will likely use more CGI, given how well it worked out in the first movie.

  3. Yup, there will be more CGI in this film. Favs isn’t “afraid” of it any more. Although he prefers to use practical effects.

    First off did you read my comment or just skim thur it? I said it has the POTENTIAL to be whatTDK was to Batman Begins. That means it has a chance to; not a guarantee to be. Second, did you even watch the first Iron man movie because compared to most films of its kind it has few CGI based effects and the ones it does are effects that just weren’t practical without CGI. Do you believe that The Dark Knight was without any CGI? Use of CGI is not only about what you can do but also cost. Often its cheaper to do something with CGI then traditional methods and I don’t think any director should be criticized for using CGI under those circumstances.

    Lastly, do you even know what pretentious means? I ask because the use of it in your statement makes you come across as being pretentious. Are you one of these TDK fans that believes nothing can or ever will be comparable to TDK and so you knock any reference anyone makes to it that is not an outright praise of the movie? Just curious and trying to figure out where you are going with your comment. You do seem to know about Bale (the a hole remark) but your off on Iron Man knowledge.

  5. I hope IM2 is nothing like TDK in any way, except for box office.
    IM is fun and exciting, TDK was exciting in places, but it wasnt fun. I appreciate why TDK was a decent accheivment but give me Tony Stark over Bruce Wayne anyday. And that is coming from a huge Batman fan!

  6. +1 to What DrSam said.

  7. Nice Poster..Love it.

  8. DrSam

    we always go back and forth on a number of different topics but I have just started to notice something with you. No matter what movie we are talking about you always seem to compare it to TDK. Usually, people who like TDK do that not people who don’t like it. I know you like it but didn’t think it was great or anything, but what do you have against it that makes you feel like you have to mention your dislike for it all the time?

  9. @ Dr. Sam

    You can’t really say you’re a HUGE Batman fan in the same breath as saying you don’t like TDK.

    …Unless you are an Adam West / Campy Batman fan. Then I’d understand your statement.

    Batman isn’t meant to be “fun”. Guys like IM and Sider-Man exist for that.

  10. @ Dr. Sam Beckett

    In fact, reading over these comments I TOTALLY disagree with your assessment of Batman and the actor currently playing him.

    Bale is really the ONLY actor to have approached Bruce/Bats from the psychological perspective – a real world psychological perspective.

    Every cinematic incarnation of Bats has had us “just go with it” in regard to the fact that this guy dresses up like a Bat. Bale subtly conveys Bruce’s tortured nature and then, through Batman, Bruce’s tortured nature unleashed upon those he sees as the source of his pain: criminals.

    Bale SHOULD look disinterested while playing Bruce. Bruce is disinterested in BEING Bruce Wayne. He is Batman – Bruce (as stated in BB) is just his disguise.

    Bale really gets little credit for who well he’s studied and understood the character in a real-world context. Val Kilmer and George Clooney were phoning in their performances.

    I don’t expect to change your mind, but I’m stating this for the record – don’t want you walking around unchallenged. :-)

  11. @bluecollarcritic

    Ok you got my I skimed thru your comment. My bad… I didn’t really mean Iron Man heavily relied on CGI i just meant it used a helluva lot more than TDK. I’m pretty sure that much is clear. I know CGI cuts costs but hey I like Nolans mentality of not cutting any corners. Think about looking at these two movies in 30 years when CGI is practically life like. Iron Man will look like a piece of crap while TDK will hold up beautifully. Thats the only point im trying to make.

    Oh and how am I being pretentious by using the word to refer to you thinking (my mistake) that Iron Man 2 would compare to TDK??? I think some people would agree that your claim is unjustified… isn’t that what it means?? Are you just trying to sound clever? Because you don’t…. And I’m not on the huge TDK bandwagon BUT i have tons of respect for Chris Nolan since hes made one of my favorite movies (memento). Go try to pick someone else apart it won’t work here guy…

  12. #Fenix
    “..I think some people would agree that your claim is unjustified…””
    Really? Gee now that’s surprising since most of the time everyone thinks the same way. Oh wait a sec… that’s right we don’t all think the same way so maybe, and I know this is a stretch for you, just maybe some out there do think that Iron Man 2 has the potential to be what TDK was to Batman Begins.

    No I’m not trying to be clever I was however trying to give you an out but instead you resulted to the lowest common denominator; name calling.

    Think (I know you can do it if your try hard enough) about the exact wording of my original comment.

    “I believe Iron Man 2 has the potential to be what The Dark Knight was to Batman Begins”.

    First off I did say “I Believe” which implies a personal opinion, something we all are entitled to including yourself and notice how I have not criticized your opinion of either film. Even so the comparison made is not that Iron Man 2 has the potential to be a THE DARK KNIGHT but that is has the potential to be what TDK was to Batman Begins.

    What that means is that Iron Man 2 has the ability to take the Iron Man series to a new level, a better and deeper level then the first movie just as TDK did for Batman Begins. In no way does that statement say that IM2 is going to be anything equivalent to TDK. It was a relative comparison and not a literal one.

    As far as trying to pick you apart, there was no “try” necessary because even after being given a chance to clarify yourself, which you partly did with the comment about not actually reading the original post before you replied, you still opted to put your foot in your mouth.

  13. @bluecollarcritic

    Wow lots of fluff in that but no real meaning… I didn’t call you any name first of all unless you think “Guy” is insulting… Second of all you act like I don’t give a damn about anyones opinion and mine is the only one that matters. Please spare me “everybody has an opinion” speech god knows I’ve heard it countless times on this site. Of course peoples opinions matter man why do I come to this site??? Just think about it man I am entitled to my opinion just as you are.

    Of course theres a chance that Iron Man 2 will be as good or better than TDK but all I’m saying is ITS NOT LIKELY.

    In no way shape or form was I trying to attack you and your comment to me was even worse than mine.. better check yourself and think harder about something better to say :)

  14. The Dark Knight was not that great of a film. Way, WAY over-rated. Too long, too dark, and a sappy ending.

    Iron Man was ten times better.

  15. @Fenix

    OldMan and I have debates on the definition os Science Fiction and even though we disagree he at least is able to make an intelligent argument. I can see its a waste of time to even bother trying to get you to see even what you’ve posted yourself so why bother with anything else. I give up. And while I have no doubt you;ll see that as osme kind of personal victory; it is not.

  16. That new poster is freakin’ sweet. I’m already clearing a spot on my wall for it…. :P

    IM is easily my most anticipated movie for 2010. I think Favs and company are going to blow us away with this one.

  17. o have one thing to look foward to this year movie wise and this is it. i got my transformers on last year so its about time for movie junkie withdrawls to start.
    very cgi intensive but the first one kinda was but it looked great. lets see if the year of the great sequals wll continue.

  18. @BlueCollarCritic

    Lots of folks consider Star Wars Science Fantasy, not Science Fiction. If I mentioned that already this week I apologize, I’m not feeling the best this week.

    Vic

  19. WARNING………….WARNING………….SPOILERS…………SPOILERS…….SPOILERS…PROCEED WITH CAUTION…THERE MAY BE FOOTAGE HERE YOU MAY ONLY WANT TO WAIT UNTIL THE THEATER.

    I SAY AGAIN…SPOILERS……………………

    There is leaked footage here of IM2 and it is extremely badass! I mean badass as in the most extreme definition of the word. I would wait until you see the movie in theaters because you don’t want anything ruined by watching this video. For those who can’t wait…enjoy:

  20. @bluecollarcritic

    Or you can just agree to disagree.. In no way shape or form do I view our exchanges as a “personal victory”.. You think I get some sort of high by arguing with you? I can care less buddy sorry to burst your bubble. Remember you were the one who came at me first, I referred to your comment that I skimmed thru but I wasn’t trying to call you out. I understand we see things differently but that doesn’t excuse you to insult my intelligence.I know I don’t have the best grammar but I try. From the way you talk I’m guessing your a bit older but obviously maturity hasn’t caught up yet.

    And goodness knows you’ve wasted enough of your time replying to my posts so why not waste some more…

  21. @MCAT

    thx for the leak, that was awesome. Mickey Rourke was sooo badass!!

  22. @M-Cat

    Wow, I guess if you’re a super-popular site the studios leave you alone when it comes to bootleg footage? Sheesh.

    Vic

  23. Vic

    yeah I’m not sure why they don’t pull the footage but I only posted it for people who don’t mind seeing the video before it’s released. If it’s a problem I’m sorry. Just know some people drool over footage like that. Only reason I posted it.

  24. @joeslankas – “The Dark Knight was not that great of a film. Way, WAY over-rated. Too long, too dark, and a sappy ending.”

    Um…did we watch the same film? The Joker died, Bruce Wayne lost the woman he loves and Batman becomes an outlaw running from the very city that he works to protect. At what point did that become “sappy”. Man I’d hate to see what you call sad. :(

  25. I’m pretty sure the joker lived… or do you mean Heath? So sad….

  26. I’m really looking forward to this movie. I wasn’t a big fan of the first one, maybe it was over-hyped for me. It was really god, but I, personally, didn’t think it brought anything new to the table. It was the necessary evil that is the origin story. But it put things in motion and set it up so that the sequel would be something special.

    BTW, I’m a huge Batman fan, and Iron Man is probably my favorite movie franchise to come out of the Marvel stable.

  27. Actually I wasnt the one who brought up TDK, the only reason I so often mention it, is because whenever comic book movies come up they are compared to TDK.

    @ Kofi Outlaw

    I find it odd that you didnt mention Michael Keaton!

    And as for Bale being the only one who approached the character with psychological approach, I’m fairly certain Keaton did the same thing, and did it better!

  28. @ DrSamBeckett

    “And as for Bale being the only one who approached the character with psychological approach, I’m fairly certain Keaton did the same thing, and did it better!..”

    Amen to that one. Bale was good and I know this is probably going to spawn hate posts from “TDK is the end all to batman movies” from certain posters whose name I won’t drop here but I agree that of all who have potrayed Batman, Keaton has proabbly come the closest to representing the true Batman/Bruce Wayne dual persona.

  29. @BlueCollarCritic

    Thanks.

    I’m sure loads of people will jump down my throat for daring to say something bad about TDK, and I really dont hate it, and I don’t hate Bale at all. He was excellent in Batman Begins, and he was at his career best in the Prestige, which is one of the most amazing films I have ever seen.

    I simply prefer Michael Keaton’s take on the character, he managed to mix the conflict of Bruce/Batman’s duality perfectly, and he never gets enough credit for his performance. Keaton had a tortured look in his eyes, you could obviously see it as Batman, but it remained there when he was Bruce as well.

    As great as the Nolan Batman’s are, I hope people don’t forget how groundbreaking and brilliant both of Tim Burton’s Batman movies truly were.
