After confessing his identity as Iron Man to the world in the first movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) comes under fire from the United States Government who demand that he hand over the powerful weapon that is the Iron Man suit. As the Government attempts to create a duplicate suit with the assistance of Stark’s rival, Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), Tony’s long time friend Jim Rhodes (Don Cheadle) is put center stage in the conflict.
Meanwhile, a mysterious and dangerous foe emerges in Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), who creates an alternate and powerful persona known as Whiplash in order to exact revenge on the Stark family once and for all. It isn’t long before he unites with Hammer in an effort to destroy Iron Man.
