Four new posters have been released for Iron Man 2 and they feature Gwyneth Paltrow as Virgina “Pepper” Potts, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Mickey Rourke as Ivan Vanko/Whiplash, and Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow. Two out of this bunch really caught our eye, while the others appear to be more of the same. Check them out…
The posters of Pepper and Rhodey are the only ones that are somewhat fresh out of this group; the other two we’ve seen before in different incarnations. Even though the Black Widow image is imposed onto a new background it’s still the same poster that debuted at Wondercon a couple of weeks ago. As for Whiplash, it’s an exact replica of the domestic poster the only difference is they moved him over to one side as opposed to the center.
We don’t mean to rag on the marketing team for this movie but these posters have been lacking. Plus it’s really worrisome that with the film’s release right around the corner we still haven’t seen a character banner with Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer. It makes us wonder how big or small his role will be in the movie.
Iron Man 2 opens in theaters nationwide on May 7th.
