This is the Iron Man 2 official movie trailer. The 2nd installation of this years best-selling DVD stars Robert Downey Jr. but unfortunately won't be seeing the return of Terrence Howard as War Machine but instead will be replaced by another popular African-American actor Don Cheadle. Iron Man 2 starts screening May 7, 2010. It also stars Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke and Samuel L. Jackson. ***Please note that the video below is a cam recording and the Official Iron man 2 movie trailer will be posted as it becomes available***

The Plot:

In an interview with USA Today, director Jon Favreau revealed that the sequel is set six months after the events of Iron Man, and stated that Stark's revealing of his identity is taking its toll on him. Favreau also discussed how their version of Iron Man's comic book nemesis the Mandarin "allows us to incorporate the whole pantheon of villains". He also mentioned that S.H.I.E.L.D. will continue to have a major role.

During development, Favreau said the film would explore Stark's alcoholism, but it would not be "the Demon in a Bottle version". Downey said, while promoting the first film, that Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) would probably develop a drinking problem as he is unable to cope with his age, as well as Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) getting a boyfriend. Before filming began, Downey revealed that while the film was not an adaptation of the Demon in a Bottle storyline from the comic book series, it was more about the "interim space" between the origin and the Demon story arc.

Movie Previews: -Jon Favreau has gone from almost out of a job to back in business faster than Mach 3 in the Mark III. In keeping with that speedy flight path, Favreau's finally letting the iron-clad cat out of the bag on "Iron Man 2," the upcoming sequel to last May's "Iron Man." 'IRON MAN 2' PLOT DETAILS REVEALED Tony Stark will next grace the silver screen on April 30, 2010, and while that's not tremendously soon, it ain't that far off either. Still, Favreau admits to Sci-Fi Wire that scripting is still in the early stages.
... War Machine, the Mandarin and the Avengers? Throw an excessively drunk Tony Stark in the mix and that's one hangover we can't wait to nurse. -The plot for Iron Man 2 has been revealed, although not confirmed the plot sounds plausible so I am sharing it. The word is according to a scooper at CinemaBlend that Tony Stark will team with Nicky Fury from the Avenger project and SHIELD to take on the terrorist known as The Mandarin. I did some looking and it appears this rumor might have started with an interview Jon Favreau did with EW where he mentioned mandarin, quote;

“Demon in a Bottle is one of the very strongest story lines of the of the series, and Iron Man is not a comic book character who is known for having wonderful storylines. He’s known for having great suits, great characters, but the villains kind of get thin at times, and it’s so very dated when you look at Communism and the metaphor. Politically, much of it doesn’t hold up well. And the Mandarin is incredibly challenging in that respect. So we have challenges ahead of us. Demon in a Bottle tends to be one that, from a storytelling perspective, is compelling to all of us.

So it appears that Cinemablends source, and EW are both saying Mandarin and in EW's case its from Jon. Cinemablends un-named source also says that ThorR will make a cameo in Iron Man 2 but this last bit I find unlikely and frankly of little interest. Thor in Iron Man? No thanks.
