New Iron Man 2 Clip

New Iron Man 2 footage has hit the web and I’ve got a link to share with you guys.  The site is French and there are English subtitles so everything is understandable.  Check out the new clip here.

This biggest takeaway is that it looks like Tony will have a confrontation with Whiplash in Monaco but after the scene in which Stark’s race car is destroyed.  Don’t believe it?  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Iron Man 2 Whiplash Poster

Wow, I can’t believe I forgot to post this one.  Late last week a new poster for Iron Man 2 hit the web.  This featured Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash.  I’ve posted a high res version for your viewing pleasure below.  One of the coolest parts of this poster is how the background is just plastered with media coverage of Tony Stark.  This is definitely something that references Whiplash’s obsession of Stark/Iron Man.  Glad to see they are laying the groundwork even in the movie posters.

There is one thing this poster leaves in question for me.  Jon Favreau had said that Whiplash’s armor would evolved as the movie progressed.  This armor he is currently wearing is the same as we saw in the Comic Con pictures.  Are they just keeping the more advanced armor under wraps or is this it?  Guess we’ll have to find out.  Hopefully there’s some good information to be gleaned from the trailer attached to Sherlock Holmes.

Whiplash – First Look at Iron Man 2’s Big Bad

I know its a bit late, but the first look at Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2 have been put online.  I’m undecided myself.  There’s not much tie-in to the comic look, but I’m willing to trust Jon Favreau after the phenomenal job he did on the first Iron Man film.  One of the things that has been pointed out is that it looks like Whiplash has an arc reactor on his chest much like Tony Stark.  Guess we’ll have to see just how far the arc reactor technology has spread in the movieverse.

For the sake of comparison I’ve included a couple images below.  The first shows the looks of Whiplash in the comics and the other the look for the movie.  Leave some comments below on what you think of the costume change and any conspiracy theories you might have on the upcoming movie.
