The first official image from Iron Man 2 was supposed to be released tomorrow, but USA Today jumped the gun and posted it online tonight (thanks to /Film for the alert). The coolest thing about the image is that it seems to highlight Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr., of course) “Hall of Armor” from the comic book. It’s a room where he keeps all the different versions of his Iron Man armor.

Check out one version of it below (from BobLayton.com):

Sorry I couldn’t find a color version of the image (I know there’s one out there somewhere), but I wanted to get this out to you sooner than later.

Here’s what director Jon Favreau had to say about the film’s production so far:

“How many superheroes are open about their true identities? We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences — in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore. It’s never easy with summer movies, but we’re trying to keep as much a surprise as possible,”

Just that one little pic is enough to light my fire in anticipation of Iron Man 2 – I can’t wait to see what Favreau shares at Comic-Con this July!
