The Iron Man 2 trailer is here.
The trailer featuers: Robert Downey, Jr. being awesome. Iron Man being awesome. Glimpses of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, naturally, being awesome. Don Cheadle shooting shit. AC/DC.
Alas, it also features Mickey Rourke saying a bunch of goofy shit and jumping rope.
I'm getting a weird vibe off of this one, but (*adjusts glasses*) by and large, comic book movie sequels are better than the originals—Spider-Man 2, X-Men 2, Blade II, The Dark Knight. But then, none of those films costarred this guy, so we'll see.
It just occurred to me that my ideal film would be a buddy comedy starring Mickey Rourke and Nicolas Cage as two former cops who've been kicked off the force for excessive drinking/grabassing, and can't get anyone to take them seriously... or can they? Featuring Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.
