Iron Man 2 Trailer Crit

I should start by saying that I never liked the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man nor was I ever interested in the Iron Man book. I did really enjoy the Iron Man film however.

This trailer is significant because it plays with what makes Tony Stark interesting; The warped values of American capitalism.
We see Stark brashly refuse to surrender his property to the government. What a patriot! Then Stark promptly calls for the privatization of law and order. In contrast, we hear the supposed villain rightfully claim that Stark is a thief. Too bad the good guys won't win.

Oh, and the first look at War Machine is pretty cool too.
