Sunglasses from Marvel’s Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr.

Last year, the summer blockbuster that we were really looking forward to seeing had to be Transformers: Revenge of the fallen, not only for the curves of Megan Fox but also for the explosive action director Michael “I like to blow sh*t up” Bay tends to produce.  This year, we at SelectSpecs.com are really looking forward to seeing the sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr. as billionaire weapons inventor Tony Stark / Iron Man, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and Mickey Rourke as arch enemy Whiplash.

For those of you who do not know what Iron Man 2 is about, here is a movie synopsis from Apple.com:

“In “Iron Man 2″, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts, and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.”

We’ve studied, with great interest the impressive Iron Man 2 trailer (see below) and taken a look at the gallery of movie stills to give you an idea of the eyewear we’re going to see in this guaranteed blockbuster of a movie!

Robert Downey Jr. – Tony Stark / Iron Man

The brilliant Robert Downey Jr (recently seen in Sherlock Holmes) stars as the billionaire inventor and founder of Stark Industries, Tony Stark, who unlike most superheroes, makes no secret about his own Super Hero alter ego – Iron Man.  Like most billionaires, Tony Stark likes fast cars, fast women, and nice things including flashy sunglasses (don’t we all?).

Mickey Rourke – Ivan Vanko / Whiplash

Mickey Rourke recently had a return to form with an Oscar nomination for his performance in the tragic and moving 2008 film The Wrestler.  Rourke stars in Iron Man 2 as Stark’s arch enemy Ivan Vanko / Whiplash and can be seen in the trailer wearing spectacles and safety goggles as he produces God only knows what kind of Iron Man killing tools of destruction.

Sam Rockwell – Justin Hammer

We also spotted Sam Rockwell (the star of probably our favorite film of 2009 “Moon”) wearing some black thick-rimmed glasses.  Sam stars as Arms Dealer Justin Hammer – a likely rival to Tony Stark’s dominance in the Arms industry.
