A third Iron Man 2 poster has appeared online and we have it for you!

If you haven’t yet checked out the Iron Man 2 posters featuring Iron Man and War Machine or “dark Tony Stark,” be sure to go HERE and HERE and have a look! As for this latest poster, it features Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash looking ready and willing to take down his great nemesis, Iron Man.

 

The hi-res version of the poster (which we also have for you) reveals the same backroom setting we’ve seen Whiplash inhabiting in previous photos from Iron Man 2. You’ll notice  that the back wall is adorned with a whole collage of Tony Stark news clippings, suggesting that Rourke’s character, Ivan Vanko, really does have a major grudge to settle with Stark.

Also sure to be a big point of discussion: this poster only reveals the early stage of the Whiplash armor, indicating that director Jon Favreau and Co. are wisely holding off on giving away the full Whiplash design until a later date.

Check out the poster:

Can I just say: I’m really digging how they’re working these villains into the Iron Man 2 story in a meaningful, relevant way. From what all I’ve gathered, Tony’s dad, Howard Stark, may have had some dealings that caused problems for Vanko and his family. The theme of consequences for one’s ambitions seems to have carried over quite nicely from Iron Man 1, adding a dimension of irony to the fact that history will repeat itself for Tony and Ivan, as Tony’s own ambitions building the Iron Man armor are what will ultimately give Vanko the means to become Whiplash and seek his revenge.

Man, this flick is going to be a good one…

Only thing left to ask is: When is the Black Widow poster (featuring sultry Scarlett Johansson) going to arrive??? :-)

Side Note: keep checking back with us all next week! There are rumors circulating that the Iron Man 2 trailer could finally be arriving!

Iron Man 2 will be in theaters on May 7, 2010.
