Before Iron Man 2 comes out and kicks off Summer 2010 with a bang, take a second to gaze upon this teaser poster for Jon Favreau's all-ages adventure Zathura. A quasi-sequel to Jumanji, Zathura was about a board game that transported its players into the farthest reaches of uncharted space. Favreau got his hands dirty with heavy special effects work, trying to seamlessly blend his love of practical effects with cutting-edge computer technology.

He had no idea he'd be doing an Iron Man film, let alone two, but Zathura turned out to be a great training ground for the director, gaining the attention of Marvel for his deft blend of crowd-pleasing action and event-movie spectacle.

You can see the poster in full after the jump.
