First Official Pic from Iron Man 2

You know what I like about Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man 2”? I like the fact that the title of the movie is just “Iron Man 2”, and not “Iron Man: More Ironer”, or “Iron Man: He’s Out of the Closet”, etc. I like how they’re just calling it “Iron Man 2”. I think that’s cool. It doesn’t shy away from its status as a sequel, and it doesn’t try to be too high-falutin’. Anyways, the first very official image from the movie has been posted online. Check it out below.

USA Today has the first image from the movie and an article over at their site. A brief excerpt below:

The sequel to last summer’s blockbuster, which began shooting three weeks ago and opens May 7, 2010, takes place six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man, says director Jon Favreau. And the development is playing out with unexpected results. “How many superheroes are open about their true identities?” he asks. “We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences — in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore.”

“Iron Man 2” returns Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and Gwyneth Paltrow as his secretary/love interest Pepper Potts. They are joined by Don Cheadle, replacing Terrence Howard, Mickey Rourke as a new villain, and Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow, who may be a villain, or an ally, or perhaps a combination of both.
