Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel, IRON MAN 2, to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero "Iron Man," reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar® nominee Robert Downey Jr.
With the world aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) is the armoured Super Hero Iron Man, he finds himself under increasing pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military. Fearing his creation could be abused if it fell into the wrong hands, Tony is unwilling to reveal the secrets behind the Iron Man armour.
Then Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), a mysterious figure from the Stark family's past, sets out to destroy Tony by revealing his own devastating weapon based on Stark's technology. Overwhelmed on all fronts, while also facing his own personal demons, Tony must finally call on his allies, old and new, to help him confront the gathering forces. Accompanied by Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces that threaten to destroy him and all of mankind.
