The Onion Explains The Reason For All The Iron Man 2 Hype

by Alex Gerage

The Onion News Network has discovered the source for all that Iron Man 2 internet buzz. No, it’s not the introduction to War Machine, or the promise of another excellent performance by Robert Downey Jr. In actuality, it’s speculation that Gwyneth Paltrow’s character will get punched in the face sometime during the film, and it has set movie websites into a tizzy. Check out their report after the jump.

Apparently there is a lot of pent up hostility towards Gwyneth Paltrow, and The Onion is using that as inspiration for this spoof video. They manage to incorporate the official Iron Man 2 website, Ain’t It Cool News, and Goop.com, which is Paltrow’s own lifestyle website into the story.  Check it out below:

What makes the ONN news spoofs so effective is how realistic the clips look. The graphics and bombastic preshow music are mirror images of what Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC do on a daily basis. While there are some great YouTube videos out there made by individuals and their webcams, the quality of videos like these ground the satire in reality, which makes it even more humorous. Dan mentioned last month that The Onion will have two cable shows premiere on Comedy Central and the Independent Film Channel later this year. I couldn’t be more excited to watch them if the product will look like this.

Does the thought of Gwyneth Paltrow getting hit in the face make you more excited to see Iron Man 2? Share your thoughts below.
