Finally, the official trailer of Iron Man 2 has been released.
The first trailer for Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 is expected to drop as early as Wednesday evening and Entertainment Tonight has previewed presumably the first footage from it.
In the short clip, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man is sharing what looks to be a flirtatious moment with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts aboard a cargo plane in mid-flight. In an instant she tosses the Iron Man helmet out the open bottom and says “go get em.”
A second clip shows Iron Man appear at some huge gala event in spectacular fashion that would make Apollo Creed jealous. The man knows how to make an entrance.
Entertainment Tonight’s full Iron Man 2 exclusive will air Wednesday night so be sure to set those DVRs.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. –
Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester are going country on the big screen.
The actresses will join Tim McGraw and Garrett Hedlund in the country singing drama “Love Don’t Let Me Down,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Tobey Maguire will co-produce the film, which follows an up-and-coming musician (Hedlund) who falls for a country singer past her prime (Paltrow).
When they set out on tour with the singer’s husband/manager (McGraw) and a beauty queen-turned-singer (Meester), love triangles and problems from their past threaten to derail them all.
Paltrow, who was last seen in the early 2009 romance drama “Two Lovers,” will next hit the big screen in “Iron Man 2” (May 2010).
“Gossip Girl” star Meester has two movies awaiting release in 2010 – the college thriller “The Roommate” with Cam Gigandet and Minka Kelly; and the romantic comedy “Date Night,” starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey.
Country crooner-turned-actor McGraw currently stars in “The Blind Side,” opposite Sandra Bullock.
Hedlund recently wrapped production on “Tron: Legacy,” which will hit theaters in December 2010.
Production on “Love Don’t Let Me Down” is slated to begin in January in Nashville.

Gwyneth Paltrow will join Nicole Kidman in “The Danish Girl,” an adaptation of the David Ebershoff novel that tells the story of a relationship between the first post-operative transsexual, Einar Wegener, and his wife Greta.
Thomas Alfredson (“Let the Right One In”) is directing a script by Lucinda Coxon. Gail Mutrux, Anne Harrison and Linda Reisman are producing, along with Kidman and Per Saari.
One afternoon in 1920s Copenhagen, Greta, a portrait painter, asked her husband to stand in for an absent female model. Slipping on a dress, stockings and woman’s shoes began a metamorphosis into Lili. When the photos became wildly popular, Greta encouraged her husband to do more, but a harmless game evolved into something deeper that threatens their marriage.
Kidman had already been attached to play Einar, and Paltrow will play Greta, who stood by her partner through the sex-change operation, finally letting go when she realized the man she married no longer exists. .
Footprint Investments LLC is financing, and international sales are being handled by Kathy Morgan at KMI. Pic is a coproduction between Pretty Pictures in association with Harrison Productions and Blossom Films.
Paltrow most recently wrapped “Iron Man 2,” which opens May 7, 2010.
She’s repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
It’s common knowledge by now that, whenever two equally famous actresses are cast together in the same movie, rumors of catfights and jealousy fits are bound to emerge. The situation was no different with “Iron Man 2,” on the set of which Scarlett Johansson reportedly fought with Gwyneth Paltrow whenever she could, and vice versa. The truth of the matter, Johansson tells IO9, is that, while they’re not exactly friends, there is no animosity between them either.
Again, this is not necessarily because they are close friends or do things girls usually do, Scarlett explains, but rather because Paltrow is so absorbed by her family that she rarely gets to notice anything else going on the set when the cameras are not rolling. Moreover, the actress explains, Gwyneth is probably not even aware of the rumors circulating in the media and, if she were, chances are she would still not care about them. In other words, Paltrow lives completely torn from the outside world, Scarlett says.
“Nothing could be further from the truth. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about working with her. Well, she’s very much out of the loop. She’s very much out of the loop, you know – she’s got a wonderful family whom she spends a lot of time with. So for her, she’s like, ‘What’s going on? What?’ And of course Jon [Favreau] who’s on his Twitter, he’s crazy about any kind of news about anything. He’s like ‘You haven’t heard? You haven’t heard?’ And he comes onto set and we’re both like, ‘Oh god.’ Every time I would say to Gwyneth, ‘Oh yeah, that was on the seventh,’ and she’d say, ‘Are you sure it wasn’t on the sixth?’ He’d [Favreau] yell, ‘what? It’s a cat fight! It’s breaking out’.” Johansson explains for the aforementioned e-zine.
All rumors and jokes aside, Scarlett has nothing but good things to say about working with Gwyneth, who is a truly dedicated actress who does things by the book and is, because of this, beyond reproach. That’s why the latest addition to the “Iron Man” franchise is certain that fans will not overlook her character when the second film comes out, no matter what rumors might say.
Asked whether Paltrow snubbed this year’s Comic-Con because all attention would be diverted to Johansson and she would not get her fair share in the spotlight, Scarlett has this to say: “Believe me, she’s worthy of plenty of attention and I know that that fans love her and they are going to love to see her in this movie, because her character kind of comes into her own. I know she would love to be here as well, but she’s with her family.”

Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con preview issue apparently did not only tease on how Scarlett Johansson portrays femme fatale Black Widow in “Iron Man 2″, but also the look of several other main characters. Slash Film has got its hands on the mag’s scanned photos that expose Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as Rhodey Rhodes and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer.
One of the images captures Paltrow’s Potts talking to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in what appears to be a court room. Another one sees Cheadle, who replaced Terrence Howard as Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes, at some kind of court hearing with Rockwell’s fast-talking weapons manufacturer character in the background. The last one exhibits director Jon Favreau and Downey Jr. watching playback from a boxing ring.
A sequel to 2008 blockbuster “Iron Man”, “Iron Man 2″ will have its script written by “Tropic Thunder” scribe Justin Theroux. It has a star-studded cast ensemble which include Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Mickey Rourke as Whiplash. Set to hit in U.S. theaters on May 7, 2010, the superhero film will be presented by Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment at the San Diego Comic Con 2009 on Saturday, July 25, from 04:00 P.M. to 05:00 P.M. at Hall H.
GWYNETH PALTROW has brushed off reports she was left fuming after movie bosses replaced her with SCARLETT JOHANSSON on posters for their upcoming movie IRON MAN 2.
The actress, who plays Iron Man’s assistant Pepper Potts in the film, was said to be furious after learning promotional posters feature images of Johansson, who is set to star as the Black Widow in the sequel.
Mickey Rourke and Johansson, both newcomers to the Iron Man franchise, are featured standing next to Robert Downey Jr. in the publicity shots – but Paltrow has been left out altogether.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, “Gwyneth was afraid she’d be upstaged by Scarlett and not being in the campaign was the final straw. She is furious she’s been left out.”
But a spokesperson for Paltrow has dismissed the reports, insisting the Oscar winner doesn’t mind being left out of the posters: “She was not at all upset.”
