It’s been a while since we’ve seen any promotion for Iron Man 2, and that’s saying something considering the movie’s scale. A new photo has been released from the film, and it shows Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark front and center in a race car. This photo looks like it was taken before the scene in the trailer where he’s getting attacked by a visceral Whiplash.
It looks like Stark is participating in a celebrity car race event that’s partially sponsored by his billion dollar company Stark Industries. Iron Man 2 will hit theaters on May 7th and will feature the return of Gwyneth Paltrow as Stark’s assistant Pepper Potts, Mickey Rourke as the Russian criminal Whiplash, and Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.
The film will not only debut in conventional theaters, but it will also be released in IMAX venues nationwide. The first installment of the Iron Man franchise didn’t receive this much widespread exposure, but after its global success IMAX couldn’t pass them up this time. In about four months we’ll finally get to see what Mr. Stark has been up to for the past two years, and if this photo is any indication, he’s been living on the edge.
Here’s the full photo…
