A new trailer for Iron Man 2 will be premiering this Sunday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the Academy Awards.  In addition, Robert Downey Jr. will be on the show to introduce the clip and also talk to Kimmel about the movie.  As you might imagine, we’ll have the trailer online minutes after it airs.

It’s also worth noting that on previous Academy Award shows, Kimmel has debuted some funny shorts like “I’m F***ing Ben Affleck” and Mel Gibson’s “The Colonel.”  Perhaps Downey Jr. and Kimmel are working on something for this year’s show.
