Iron Man 2 Trailer Unveiled!

Dec 16, 2009 | 2:45pm EST

Hoping perhaps to steal a little thunder from Avatar, Paramount today released the long-awaited trailer for Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle.

This one really needs no introduction:

Judging from the trailer, Iron Man 2's storyline seems to be modelled thematically after Rocky III (my personal favorite of the series) -- Tony Stark becomes Champion of the World, basks in the public's adulation, then gets a little too comfortable, a little too cocky, and is brought down by a tougher, hungrier adversary. In this case, Rourke plays the part of Clubber Lang, with Cheadle as Apollo Creed and Gwyneth Paltrow as Adrian.

Judge for yourself:

Methinks Sylvester Stallone might be entitled to a screenwriting credit.

Iron Man 2 opens May 7, 2010.
