There is a scene after the closing credits: Agent Coulson arrives in New Mexico and locates a crater in which lies the war hammer Mjolnir. This is in fact an alternate version of the same scene from Thor (2011). See more »
The mainland Chinese release obscures Vanko's nationality by reversing all Russian references on the soundtrack.

It isn't as good as the original but Iron Man 2 is still a really good sequel. Robert Downey Jr. once again gives an incredible performance and is extremely charismatic. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Sam Rockwell all give great performances. Jon Favreau's direction is really good and it's consistently funny. The CG is impressive and the music by John Denney is good. However, Mickey Rourke is wasted as a forgettable villain and the final battle is a little short.
