The original movie Iron Man was released on May 2, 2008 and quickly became a huge success. For children and adults that love their superheroes, Iron Man became a household name. There were a lot of “little” Iron Man’s trick-or-treating and a lot of “big” Iron Man’s at costume parties around the country that year for Halloween.
Well, the much anticipated sequel, Iron Man 2 has finally arrived and will be released on the big screen next Friday May 7th. The billionaire genius, Tony Stark is back and wittier than ever! If you saw the first one you know that they couldn’t have picked a better actor to play the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man than Robert Downey Jr. He was excellent! He’s accompanied by some other big name actors such as; Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Don Cheadle and Scartlett Johansson. Of course leave it to Mickey Rourke’s acting skills to make the evil bad guy, Whiplash into a great character.
Iron Man costumes are going to be flying off the shelves again this year, so don’t wait to order yours. I know my son can’t wait for May 7th so he and his friends can go see the movie. He’s already told me he wants to be Iron Man and his best friend is going as the enemy, Whiplash for Halloween this year.
This is definitely going to be one blockbuster sequel you’re not going to want to miss!
