While we're not the biggest comic book geek out there (we'll leave that to b's resident fanboy, Tim Wong), we did get awfully giddy about the official "Iron Man 2" trailer that popped up online Monday. Here's what we're stoked to see when the sequel hits theaters May 7:
••• Scarlett Johansson's villain possibly upstaging Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Pots.
••• Mickey Rourke's crazy hobo hair and insanely scary electric whips (kinky).
••• More smug -- yet charming -- Tony Stark moments. Like you even have to try to win us over, Robert Downey Jr.
••• Two words: War Machine.
••• Tony Stark/Justin Hammer rivalry. Oh, you silly boys and your silly, life-threatening toys.
••• Samuel L. Jackson + eye patch = super-win.
Check it out for yourselves:
Here's what b readers are saying:
Ahem: Suitcase Suit. Suitcase Suit!! SUITCASE SUIT!!! I'd love to say I had more thoughts, but each time I've watched the trailer since, that's all that makes my brain go nuts.
