?Yahoo unveiled the movie poster for Iron Man 2 last night, and even though it’s just two suits of armor standing there, it’s pretty damn exciting. I broke out my movie Iron Man figure to compare, and it looks like new Iron Man is pretty much the same except with a bulkier chest piece and very slightly different arms. No big deal. The big deal is War Machine, who looks fucking awesome. Between that gun on his shoulder and his detailed, less sleek arms, I love him — the red eyes aren’t bad, either. I assume you all approve as well, but let me know if you don’t in the comments.
