Looks like the helmet is off, and holy facial hair! Hi, there, Tony Stark! Hot on the heels of this week’s previous IRON MAN 2 teaser poster, featuring Iron Man and War Machine (and the dreams of a million geeks), we’ve now got the international teaser poster for the second entry in the franchise. This new poster still sticks to the highly polished and darkening sky-heavy feel of the previous posters, but this time we get the human factor. Is this Iron Man or is it Tony Stark? It all reminds me of a horrifying story a friend once told me – the time she ended up “backstage” at Disneyland, and subsequently saw Chip and Dale standing around, fully costumed except for their character heads, which they were holding. They were holding them because they were smoking. That’s a lot of childhood dreams crushed right there.
But, good news, this poster doesn’t crush any dreams! But it does remind us that Iron Man is still just a man. Granted, a very attractive, very smoldering man…but I’m getting off course. Hit the jump to see the full poster! (more…)
