I like it. Whiplash looks cool and I like how the trailer focusses mostly on him being all serious and Tony Stark being all playboyish. The shot of War Machine is nice too. Plenty of stuff in the trailer that makes me wanna see this one.
Iron Man exceeded my expectations so I'm really looking forward to part two. If my comic book to live action movie theory is correct the Iron Man movies shouldn't be horrible until part three. So I firmly set my expectations to "unstabley high"
Glad to see Rourke in the role of Whiplash. He's won me over in The Wrestler, and he actually looks like a dangerous villain due to the boxing and the facial surgery.
I'm in! Didn't watch the first movie in theaters, nor did I really want to, but when it came out on DVD and all my customers raved about it, I watched it, loved it, and bought it. I'll be in line for a ticket for the sequel.

Dammit, had a long reply written out about this. The bullet points I wanted to make - This is an excellently directed and well written film. - I'd disagree it started slow, and it made the last 20 minutes even more powerful and intense.
