Two New Iron Man 2 Posters Online

A couple of weeks after Paramount unveiled the final one sheet in the UK, the US poster has made it's debut alongside a character sheet for Scarlett Johansson's "Black Widow", an exclusive to this year's WonderCon.

The group one-sheet is fairly different from the international one-sheet, in that there’s not even a hint of Mickey Rourke’s bad guy, Whiplash, who could be found walking menacingly away from an explosion in the international version. Instead, we get the standard floating heads – Robert, Don and Gwyneth – with a full-body shot of Scarlett (emphasising her butt) while behind them tower Iron Man and War Machine. But their positions have been switched from the international version, rendering it a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT POSTER!

Truth be told, we prefer the international version – it was more colourful, more dynamic and the decision not to focus on Rourke is somewhat baffling.

But – hey! - enough of us prattling on…here's the poster.

If that didn't address all your Black Widow needs, here's the US one-shot of Scarlett Johansson showing off her new red hair,  black catsuit and cartoonish good looks.

And in case you didn’t know, Iron Man 2 – which this correspondent reckons could be the biggest movie of the summer – opens May 7.
