Iron Man 2 – A New Twist to the Tony Start Story


Iron Man 2 is coming with the release date of May 7 2010 is sure to be a big hit and influence Halloween this year.

Iron Man 1 has brought much money to Hollywood. The Marvel story about Tony Stark which was created in 1963 became a huge hit when it was made into a movie in 2008. The plot of the story seemed a bit common with the usual common man turned “superhero” plot. What made Iron Man quite different was the fact that the man Tony Stark did not possess any special powers but had used technology to create him his powerful suit. Iron Man 1 the movie was quite interesting and many movie fanatics are already so excited to wait for the release of its sequel – Iron Man 2 this coming May.

The plot of Iron Man 2 is about the return of Tony Stark, Iron Man 1’s wealthy playboy. After he publicly announced in Iron Man 1 that he is the famous iron clad hero, he is now about to face his Russian arch nemesis named Whiplash or  Ivan Vanko (played by Mickey Rourke) and also his corporate rival Justin Hammer (played by Sam Rockwell). The newcomer in this Iron Man sequel is the character of the ultra sexy Russian spy known as Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff is the character’s name) played by Scarlett Johansson. The character of Colonerl James Rhodes, originally played by Terrence Howard, is going to be played by Don Cheadle. Colonel James Rhodes wil become a villain as the War Machine in this sequel. Other members of the cast who are included in Iron Man 2 are Paul Bettany, Sam Rockwell and director Jon Favreau.

Iron Man 2 has evolved from the original Iron Man 1 story. In the the first movie, Tony Stark is shown as a handsome philanderer (Robert Downey Junior) and engineer with outstanding ability. He is the founder and the executive officer of the multinational company Stark Industries. The company builds and assembles military weapons, thus, his knowledge and resources all led to the great Iron Man suit.

In Iron Man 1, the plot shows Mr. Stark’s trip to Afghanistan, being abducted to make weapons of mass destruction, his creation of the Iron Man suit and his escape. Eventually, he manages to perfect the suit and the end result was a suit made of gold and titanium which also gives the wearer the ability to fly because of a complex propulsion system. In the story, Mr. Stark goes around saving the world from crime and the pseudonym Iron Man became known. In the end, he was able to stop an evil plot instigated by  Obadiah Stane. Before the movie ended, Mr. Start revealed his real identity and admitted to the world that Iron Man and Tony Stark is one and the same.

The story of Iron Man is indeed a very interesting one especially in today’s generation. The story frees us from the usual superhero perspective who possesses superpowers due to some genetic change or mutation. In Iron Man 1 and Iron Man 2, the hero is a common businessman who has his own weaknesses (a philanderer) who used his intelligence, his own money and his resources to create a new hi-tech hero.
