Worstpreviews.com has some good news for Iron Man fans who can’t wait for the trailer for the next movie: it might be accompanying Robert Downey Jr.’s upcoming film! Not to mention standing alongside the fourth Shrek movie’s teaser before Avatar.
About a month ago, director Jon Favreau hinted that the trailer for the upcoming “Iron Man” sequel will appear in front of “Sherlock Holmes” on December 25th. Apparently that plan has changed, or slightly modified.
According to a very unreliable source, the IMDB message boards, a worker at a New Zealand movie theater said the following: “Hey, i work as a projectionist for a theater complex, Berkley Cinemas, in Auckland, New Zealand and we just got an email from Paramount today to say that they will be sending out the first trailers for Iron Man 2 and Shrek Forever After next week to be played before Avatar beginning Dec. 17.”
It has already been confirmed that the trailer for “Shrek Forever After” will play in front of “Avatar,” so it’s not a big surprise that “Iron Man” would want to get in on unveiling the first footage with one of the biggest films of the year. I’m sure the “Iron Man 2″ trailer will be in front of “Sherlock Holmes,” a week later, as well.
And while the Christmas season seems at once too far away and too soon, the actual Iron Man release in 2010 will at least be bringing with it a ton of press, comic book tie-ins, merchandise and–you guessed it: ACTION FIGURES! So here’s a look at just two of the items we’re getting; they’re both from the extremely popular Marvel Select collection and feature a look at the faces of both Tony Stark (Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his best friend James Rhodes (War Machine, played by Don Cheadle, who replaces Terrence Howard).
