Superherohype got their hands on what looks like to be the start of a viral campaign for the upcoming Iron Man 2 movie. The article in the picture goes over the early events of the first Iron Man film, and it looks to be an article written the day after Tony Stark announces "I am Iron Man" at the end of the first film. However, the content of the article may not be  what we're supposed to be looking at.The word "secret" has been highlighted, and the article seems to be on a basement wall.  
 
If you remember a few years back, The Dark Knight was all about the viral marketing. They had numerous websites, videos, and almost everything else imaginable. Could this be the start of another campaign like that? 
 
What do you guys think about this picture? Are their any secrets you guys can spot?

The guy off to the side kinda' looks like Edward Norton to me. But I just got done watching the Incredible Hulk, so it may just be me.

Does the giant arrow in the middle of the picture have to do with anything?

dude just look at the poster that came out yesterday, it's whiplash in a basement with a bunch of tony stark clippings behind him, it probably has a lot to do with that

@SerjShelldrake: That's what I was thinking
@afierce: it's just linking the pic of the armor to a pic of Tony since he told the world that he was Iron Man
 
also I guess his secret life isn't so secret if it has been written about in a news paper...

If you increase the brightness you'll see that it's Tony. Also the source image of him with his elbow on the desk is out there somewhere but I'm having a hard time finding it. I think it was one of the earliest IM2 photos.

Its not a mirror. If you look closely you'll see the Tony Stark image is part of the same news clipping.

Meh I cant see this working as well as The Dark Knight's Viral campaign. IMO after the huge success of that movie it seems that Marvel is trying to make this their Dark Knight

pretty obvious their setting up to tell us more about Whiplash. i would love for this to get as in depth as DK, but i cant see that happening becuase we already know sooo much about the movie. But i can imagine cool easter eggs.
