This week sees the blockbuster summer get underway as Iron Man 2, after weeks of build-up, finally makes it onto the big screen this weekend.
Robert Downey Jr is back as playboy and superhero Tony Stark, who has admitted he is Iron Man to the rest of the world, alognside Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson.
After confessing his identity as Iron Man to the world, Tony Stark comes under fire from the United States Government who demand he hand over the powerful weapon that is the Iron Man suit.
As the Government attempts to create a duplicate suit with the assistance of Stark’s rival, Justin Hammer (Rockwell), Tony’s long time friend Jim Rhodes (Cheadle) is put center stage in the conflict.
Meanwhile, a mysterious and dangerous foe emerges in Ivan Vanko (Rourke), who creates an alternate and powerful persona known as Whiplash in order to exact revenge on the Stark family once and for all… it isn’t long before he unites with Hammer in an effort to destroy Iron Man.
With the arrival of his shady new assistant (Johansson), and persistent recruitment attempts from S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Stark needs all the help he can get in order to overcome the obstacles.
Iron Man 2 is released 30th April. Take a look at a clip from the movie:
