The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 dropped yesterday, and I had two major takeaways from it: First, the movie looks like it's going to be insanely awesome. Second, Tony Stark has apparently ended his dalliance with Acura and gone back to his first love, Audi.
While talking about her speculated multimillion-dollar net worth, Gabby Douglas professed her desire for a white AcuraNSX roadster, just like the one in The Avengers. What, no R8?
Iron Man gave up his trademark R8 for an Acura NSX droptop in The Avengers, and it looks like Audi feels bitter about it. Why else would they diss the fictional character's ride on Twitter?
Iron Man 2 mostly served as a reminder that Tony Stark is kind of a dick, a sentiment The Avengers will only reinforce when Stark arrives in this poorly disguised Acura NSX replacement. It's another reminder to Acura's fanboys they'll probably never get one. Handsome dick.
Audi's Iron Man sponsorship tie-up continues with Tony Stark adding an Audi R8 V10 Spyder to his garage along with a chauvinistic tagline for the second movie. Because, you know, a multi-billionaire superhero needs a car to get laid.
Along with more footage of Tony Stark's psuedo-F1 racer getting Whiplashed a la the first Iron Man 2 Trailer, this behind-the-scenes footage shows a new Rolls-Royce getting spanked on the Circuit de Monaco. Oh, and Scarlett Johansson.
Folks, this is it. The first trailer for Iron Man 2. Watch carnage taken to a whole new level — like Tony Stark's "F1 car" getting whipped in half by a very perturbed-looking Whiplash played by Mickey Rourke. Awesome.
We believe we can fly, we believe we can touch the sky. We think about it every night and day, we want to spread our wings and fly away. We believe that like Iron Man, we can soar...and...well, like the man of iron does in this first clip of his first flight in the movie hitting theaters next month, crash the hell…
After months of Ironman teaser shots and Ironman Super Bowl commercials and all kinds of other nonsense, the full trailer is now live and it's looking pretty good. Convenient for our Leap Day Celebration, Ironman appears to be able to jump right into the suit with some sort of Jetsons style automatic clothes…
UPDATE: The official Iron Man Super Bowl commercial! Apparently it's not just automakers like Hyundai and Chrysler with money to burn this Super Bowl Ad Watch weekend. Nope, it's also the movie industry — it looks like Iron Man will be getting some love in a commercial airing this Sunday during the big game.…
The following is an e-mail plea from reader James, who's making an example of what we'd consider to be a very well thought out tip on his desire to see us post on the newly released trailer for Iron Man:
There's no doubt at least one of us thinks the Audi R8's a pretty smooth looking sports car — and apparently so does the metal-faced gadget-obsessive Iron Man himself, Tony Stark. That's right, the Teutonic automaker obsessed with Bruce is teasing us yet again with the R8, product placing it in the new "Iron Man"…
