When we left off at the end of the first Iron Man, Tony Stark admitted to the world that he was, in fact, the metallic super hero Iron Man. The sequel picks up on that trend, with the government hot on Tony’s heels, demanding control of the powerful Iron Man weapon suit. Meanwhile, they’re working with Stark’s rival, Justin Hammer, to develop heir own suit, with Stark’s military friend, Jim Rhodes, caught between them. Oh, throw in a threat from a super villain named Whiplash, recruit attempts from S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Nick Fury, and the eventually appearance of Warhammer… Iron Man 2 is a pretty full film!
