The new Iron Man 2 trailer jumped the gun a little bit, and has popped online before its Jimmy Kimmel debut. At first glance it looks like a rehash of the first trailer, but you'd be wrong! There's tons of new footage in here, and you'll get to hear from characters you haven't yet seen, namely Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer and a bit more of Mickey Rourke's Whiplash. His Russian accent sounds a bit cartoony, but better than it did in that muttered line in the first trailer.
Even better, you get to see some of Scarlett Johansson. She still doesn't have a single line to her black leather catsuit, but she gets to throw some sultry glances and shoot Tony Stark's palm gun. I don't even mean that to sound sexy, but it's going to. I can't help it.
War Machine fans might get the biggest thrill, though. I remember a good friend of mine telling me how cool it was when War Machine debuted in the comics -- well, I think this is the same kind of geektastic, pants-wetting moment. The suit looks great, and it's going to be really fun to see him blast stuff away.
Anyway, this trailer looks very cool. Iron Man 2 is going to be the movie of the summer. Let's call it now.
ETA: Now that I've watched it a few times -- who appreciates Tony's collapsible armor in the photo above? That's some early, early Iron Man for you!
