UPDATE: Yep, fun ruined by Paramount’s lawyers.

Here’s the Iron Man 2 footage screened at Comic Con the other week, shot on glorious buttcam. If you can actually understand the dialog you have better headphones than I, but from what I can tell, it starts with Robert Downey asking if he can join Nick Fury-Samuel Jackson’s team.  Then it transitions to a court sequence in which Senator Gary Shandling wants the government to take away Tony Stark’s suit, because obviously it’s a national security threat, just like the X-Men. Duh, dude, just relax. Let Tony Stark handle whatever comes up, it’s his vision.  Don’t you read Ayn Rand?

Then after the hearing, it switches to random shots of stuff, like Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, all set to music.  It gets me super pumped to see the movie, but in a way it’s sort of cheating.  You could edit Love Actually to “Shoot to Thrill” and I’d probably be in the back headbanging, screaming “YEEEEAH, LET’S SEE THIS BITCH FALL IN LOVE!” That doesn’t necessarily make it a good movie.

Also, and this is neither here nor there, but if Mickey Rourke could rock out to AC/DC while feeding his pet cockatoo crackers from his mouth it would be the cutest thing ever.
