iron man 2 movie posterI saw an advance screening of Iron Man 2 this evening and it was… as usual I’m not allowed to actually review it until it hits theaters on May 7, 2010.

So, instead, here’s a slightly enigmatic, purposefully partially vague yet point-on bullet-point preview of Iron Man 2 directed by Jon Favreau (also on screen as Happy Hogan) and starring Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Don Cheadle (Lt. Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes), Scarlett Johansson (Natalie Rushman), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Sam Rockwell (Justin Hammer) and Mickey Rourke (Ivan Vanko).

  • Ivan the terrible is whippin’ (x2).
  • This is the Gary Shandling Show. How do you like it so far?
  • Your wires are showing.
  • Suit-on-suit action? Of course.
  • More than one S.H.I.E.L.D./shield (and in more ways than one).
  • Scarlet J. In leather!? purrrrrr
  • “Who the !@#$% ordered extra curlers for Johanson!?”
  • I counted at least four languages (English, French, Russian, Latin)
  • Tony Stark: Power of sarcasm +10
  • Not an AC-DC selling machine.
  • Daddy issues much?
  • Ah, ain’t little Tony so cute?
  • Larry Ellison? Of Oracle fame!? No, really.
  • Plenty of quotable one liners.
  • We don’t need not stinkin’ guns… oh, wait. Apparently we do.
  • Stan Lee is not “himself.” For less than 2 seconds.
  • DJ AM is not Iron Man. Or is Iron man not DJ AM?
  • G4’s Olivia Munn is in (approximately) the first 4 minutes of the movie (for less than 40 seconds).
  • Hammer can dance (and no need for Hammer pants).
  • Favreau finally kicks ass. Sorta.
  • Perfect video game fodder.
  • Smootchie, smootchie.
  • Stay to the end of the credits.
