The first picture from the intensely anticipated superhero sequel Iron Man 2 has debuted online.

USAToday has the first look at the follow up to 2008’s mega-hit Iron Man, with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark standing in front of his creations.

Despite financial disagreements, casting shakeups, and behind-the-scenes confusion, the film finally went into production three weeks ago.

Director Jon Favreau returns, as does Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Terrence Howard, who previously portrayed Jim Rhodes in the first film, was expected to return in the sequel to play War Machine. However, he was unceremoniously replaced by Don Cheadle late last year.

Also joining the cast are Mickey Rourke and Scarlett Johansson as the villains Whiplash and Black Widow. Sam Rockwell climbs aboard as Tony’s business nemesis Justin Hammer.

According to Favreau, the film will deal with the question, “How many superheroes are open about their true identities?” (SPOILER FOR IRON MAN) This seems to directly address the final moments of the first Iron Man film, in which Tony Stark admitted to the press that he was in fact Iron Man (END OF SPOILER).

Iron Man 2 will hit cinemas May 7, 2010. Meanwhile, you can follow Jon Favreau’s set updates on Twitter.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON IRON MAN 2? IS ANYONE ELSE PSYCHED FOR ROCKWELL’S INVOLVEMENT? IS ANY ELSE KIND OF WORRIED ABOUT JOHANSSON’S?

  1. Iron Man 2 is going to be simply awesome. Loved the ending of Iron Man. Especially the one after the credits when Samuel L Jackson tells Tony Start about the Avengers Initiative. Cant wait for the part 2 now.

  2. Robert Downey Jnr had excelled in Iron Man. I can just tell that Iron Man 2 is going to be extremely better the first. Can’t wait to see it~! even though it’s in 2010.
