New Iron Man TV Spot is Criminally Badass

So apparently some kids got together and held an awards show over the weekend, and this “Iron Man 2” 30-second spot was one of the clips that was shown during the show. Yeah, I don’t get it, too. Why in the world would you want to give the rugrats their own awards show? Everyone knows kids don’t know nothin’ about nothin’ ‘cept eating their toenails. Anyhoos, I gotta admit, this “Iron Man 2” spot (via YouTube) is pretty damn awesome. It has some groovy new scenes, including more of Scarlett Johansson in her Black Widow garb (that’s always nice), more of Don Cheadle as Rhodey in a couple of Iron Man suits (cool), and Samuel L. Jackson being Samuel L. Jackson.

In “Iron Man 2”, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sam Rockwell, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Jon Favreau, Clark Gregg, and directed by Jon Favreau.
