Iron Man 2: Theories

Published on March 8th, 2010

Ok, here are some screen shots from the new Iron Man 2 trailer, and what I think is going on in each. This is just my thoughts about this film. Since Iron Man is my favorite character, I’ve been thinking about it a lot.

PLEASE NOTE there may be some SPOILERS, or it might turn out that I’m just talking out of my ass.

I guess we’ll find out on May 7th of this year. Be sure to stay tuned to ComicImpact for a special Iron Man 2 podcast  the week the film opens.

Stark with some French fans before the race I told you guys about last June.  I recommended  you pick up a copy of Essential Iron Man, Vol. 1 (v. 1) and read Tales of Suspense #45.

Here is where Iron Man arrives at his sports car down the road, drops his armor and changes into his alter ego, Anthony Stark. Stark puts the car in gear, and heads over to the speedway. He arrives just in time to swap cars, climbing behind the wheel of “The Stark Special” to race. Sometime into the event, he feels his heart freeze up on him, causing him to spin the car out of control and crash! This time it will be Whiplash that causes the crash.

More from the same scene in Monaco and it looks like Whiplash is looking for blood.

ironman_t2_6

Stark enjoying a nice Los Angeles day before heading over to the Expo. This is where the film starts off.

Stark working on a new arc light after his fight with Whiplash in Monaco.

ironman_t2_8

Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) talking with Whiplash about how he knows how to make the same  Armor as Stark. He wants to take down Tony because of a bad business deal, or because Tony turned him down about developing new armor.

Those look like Titanium Man/Crimson Dynamo. Remember I told you guys that when the first trailer hit the net.

ironman_t2_9

Whiplash looking at  his new toys thanks to Justin Hammer.

Stark still working on some new kind of armor. Also look in the background you can see a poster design by Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant).

War Machine, showing for the first time at the Stark Expo. Rhodes is not in inside the Armor or not at the time.

Iron Man and War Machine about to kick some ass.

ironman_t2_14

Are they in Japan or just a place that looks like a Japanese garden.

ironman_t2_15

Black Widow trying to get some info about Stark from Whiplash and Justin Hammer. She’s kicking ass at the same time and looking sexy.

Justin Hammer doing the intro at the Stark Expo, but look at whats behind him…..

ironman_t2_19

Iron Man vs Whiplash. This still takes place at the race. Also this armor looks a lot like the new one that will show up in The Invincible Iron Man #25.

Yeah Tony takes out the armor from his briefcase. If you are a fan of Shell-Head, then you know he used to have his armor in his briefcase in the first issues of Tales of Suspense, back in the 1960’s.

Now I may be right on only one of these, but this is what I think. I guess I’ll just have to wait 60 more days. That’s only 1440 hours before Iron Man 2 comes out.
