The two-minute-plus trailer for the movie (which hits theaters May 7) does not skimp on either the new characters to the sequel or the action. You’ll get a fairly substantial glimpse of Mickey Rourke as Ivan Danko/Whiplash, as well as quicker looks at Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Don Cheadle (who’s taking over for Terence Howard) in his War Machine armor and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
And, of course, there’s lots of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, both in and out of his armor, and portions of several big action pieces. Based on these couple of minutes, it appears that Downey and director Jon Favreau haven’t lost any of the spark that made the first movie such a fun ride.
