Iron Man 2: An Onion Report and a Villains Featurette

Iron Man 2

As May 7 draws closer, it is safe to assume that we’ll be writing more and more about Iron Man 2. As was the case with the first Iron Man film in 2008, there was an epic marketing push down the stretch. It’s hard to ignore it as well, because everything we’re seeing from Iron Man 2 looks great. And we’re just as excited as you are, so we’ll keep bringing you the good stuff as it is released.

Yesterday we showed you a giant photo gallery from the film, as well as another exciting TV spot. Today we have two updates as well. The first is less about the film and more about making you laugh, while the second is all about the film’s villains. Up first is a report from The Onion News Network about the shock streaking across the internet due to the discovery of a very particular plot-point involving Gwyneth Paltrow and a punch to the face. It’s very reminiscent of The Onion’s 2008 report: Iron Man Trailer Spawns Feature Film. It just never fails…
