Earlier today, Yahoo! Movies unveiled the first official one-sheet poster for Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures’ “Iron Man 2.” Along with the below shot of the titular armored hero and his new ally War Machine, the site also features stills from the John Favreau-directed, Robert Downey, Jr.-starring sequel featuring peaks at cast members including Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke.
As the poster states, the film is slated to hit theaters in the United States on May 7, 2010 almost exactly two years after its predecessor stormed the box office to earn an impressive $98 million during its opening weekend before netting over $585 million worldwide. The release date also comes six days after the 2010 Free Comic Book Day promotion, which traditionally leverages the buzz around summer superhero films to draw new readers into comic book stores across North America.
