The fine folks at Paramount were gracious enough to send over an awesome first look image from the upcoming Iron Man commercial that will run around 4:30pm EST during Super Bowl XLII between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. This will accomplish two things: It will make those high school jocks-turned-armchair quarterbacks sit up and take notice of one of the summer’s biggest films and it will force the movie geeks that they used to beat up to watch a little football. I’d say it will help strike a healthy balance on both sides. But if you are like me and you were a jock who was a closet movie geek in high school, this is going to be just plain cool. I can imagine that Paramount paid a wicked amount for the spot, so we might as well watch it.
As well, the studio has said that the trailer spot will hit the web sometime Monday morning, so check back for that. Until then, just click the image above to see the entire shot of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) playing around in his garage.
