You know it had to happen sooner or later, although I am surprised it’s later, but someone’s finally uploaded the “Iron Man 2” footage that was shown at this year’s Comic-Con ’09. It’s five minutes of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Gary Shandling as a Senator, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, flashes of Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow kicking ass, and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer. I have to admit, though, it’s not nearly as overwhelmingly cool as I had hoped, though the last part, the brief glimpse of War Machine blasting away, sort of saves it.

Get it while it’s still around, kids.
