Preview the new Iron Man 2 trailer… And costumes!

With the new Iron Man 2 movie scheduled to blast its way into theatres on May 7, 2010 of course it means that new costumes will be accompanying the film. While snippets about the plot of the sequel have been leaked out, fans got a more fleshed-out image of things to come on Oscar night with an expanded trailer for “Iron Man 2.” The trailer (which can be seen here) gives fans a better look and understanding of some of the new characters featured in the film.

Having revealed his dual identity as the armored superhero Iron Man, billionaire inventor/venture capitalist/playboy Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) finds himself under pressure from both the government and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency helmed by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to hand over the secrets of the high-tech armored suits he wears as Iron Man. Things get further complicated when he finds himself in the crosshairs of tattoed Russian ex-convict/inventor, Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) who has used a Stark-like generator to power his own suit and brutal “light whip” weaponry to try to take down Stark.

Returning to Stark’s side are his assistant (now high-ranking board member of Stark Industries), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and his trusted best friend, Air Force pilot Lt. Col. “Rhodey” Rhodes (played this time by Don Cheadle, stepping into the role). Stark also finds himself with a new assistant, Natasha Romanov (Scarlett Johansen), who’s a spy for S.H.I.E.L.D with the code name, “Black Widow.”

With a soundtrack by AC/DC, the film can’t lose! And neither can you with the new costumes based on new characters from the film. Iron Man costumes are already super-popular in kids’ and adult sizes and considering that there won’t be many changes to the iconic suit, it’s a safe bet that you can dust off those costumes and bring ’em back for more.
