Movie Trailer Special: Interactive Iron Man 2 Video

Okay, I know today was supposed to be a look at the Top 5 Superhero Weddings, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. That's because Marvel has preempted pretty much all existence with the release of maybe the coolest teaser ever, their new 'Iron Man 2' interactive trailer.

Now, before you watch it, you should know up front that the actual footage itself is the same as the last trailer. So what's so cool about it? Well, as this trailer goes along, new Iron Man-style data folders appear along the top of the screen, detailing characters and concepts form the movie. You can then click on these at any time to access those files and look at still photos, schematics and bios about the characters as though you were tapping into the database of the Iron man suit itself. Then, you can punch the video button and the trailer picks right back up where it left off.

And thanks to the many files, you can end up watching those clips in whatever order you like, effectively creating your own Iron man trailer experience. Seriously, check it out: this takes trailers to a whole new level.

How cool is that?
