Are "The Mandroids" in Iron Man 2?

Are "The Mandroids" in <em>Iron Man 2</em>?

Based from the trailer footage, it is very possible The Mandroids are in Iron Man 2!

To those who have no idea who The Mandroids were in the Marvel comic books, here is a description of them from The Marvel Directory website.

"A Mandroid is a heavily armored personal combat suit originally designed and engineered by Stark International for use by S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division). Now manufactured by Stane International, the Mandroid armor is primarily used for protection against opponents who possess superhuman powers. The Mandroid armor was first field tested by S.H.I.E.L.D. against the Avengers when the Avengers were being investigated for harboring aliens during a recent skirmish in the Kree-Skrull War. Mandroid armor was also worn by Major Glenn Talbot of the U.S. Army in a confrontation with the Hulk. The plans to the Mandroid armor were appropriated by weapons manufacturer Moses Magnum and were once employed against the X-Men in Japan. While not nearly as versatile and powerful as Iron Man's armor, the Mandroid armor nonetheless is a formidable offensive weapons system. S.H.I.E.L.D. currently has five fully operational Mandroid suits."

We all know there will be robots, presumably created by Justin Hammer (though not confirmed), that will be attacking Stark/Iron Man throughtout the film and now it makes me curious.

Is it possible that the robots are The Mandroids or just robots created just for the film?

You have to admit, it is a weird coincidence that they were originally designed and engineered by Stark and designed for S.H.I.E.L.D., and obviously the fact that they are now manufacted by Stane International also makes me wonder if maybe Justin Hammer is now the manufacturer in the film universe? Hell, they fought The Avengers!

Coincidence? Very likely. Improbable? Not at all.
