Iron Man 2 First Photo Fires Up Our Rocket Boots

<i>Iron Man 2</i> First Photo Fires Up Our Rocket Boots

Here it is, the first official photo from Iron Man 2. Tony Stark is looking concerned because he ran out of bourbon while a wall of Iron Men look on. I can’t wait.

Director Jon Favreau says that Iron Man 2 will take place six months after Tony Stark tells the world that he’s Iron Man, and they want “play with idea” of a superhero who’s open about his identity. “But it obviously has consequences-in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore.” Yes, like what if all of his suits got together and formed a dance troupe?

In the photo we see the original suit used to break out of his hellish imprisonment, his Mark II armour and two sets of the Mark III—the old and busted one from fighting Iron Monger and a brighter, shinier one that’s all cleaned up. I know I’ve still got Terminator, Star Trek and Harry Potter and Transformers this summer, but I want Iron Man 2 to come out now. [USA Today]
