It might be safe to say that Iron Mansurprised hardcore comic fans not only with its success, but also with how good it was. The inevitable sequel became one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2010. But the question does exist: will the sequel be as good as the original?
If the trailer is any indication, then the answer is yes. It features a flippant Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark, a flirtatious Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Mickey Rourke doing a spot on Russian accent. It is light on the Scarlet Johansson, but does feature a geek-out moment at the end. Hopefully, the final product holds up to the advance hype.
