Domestic Iron Man 2 Poster Is More of the Same

A week ago today, the international theatrical poster for Iron Man 2 was released on the web. The reaction was less than enthusiastic from commenters on this site, many calling out the mediocre Photoshop skills employed to put it together. I have a feeling that the reaction to the domestic theatrical poster, which was released today via MySpace, will be similar.

As you can see, the only difference between the two posters is that the characters on the left — Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark — are clearly divided from the characters on the right — Don Cheadle as James Rhodes and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Instead of Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in the middle, we get a flying Iron Man, which is not the easiest object to make out at that size. As well, there’s a lot of empty black space in this poster. As excited as I may be for Jon Favreau’s movie, I’m mostly underwhelmed by this little piece of marketing.

Have a look at both the domestic (top) and international (bottom) posters below. Iron Man 2 is in theaters May 7, 2010.
