Comics Should be Good
Can it really be anything but the Iron Man trailer from ComicCon?
How awesome does that look?!?
As a guy who NEVER really liked Iron Man…
I WILL have to see that (AND buy the DVD).
Downey Jr. is GOLD!!!
Looks very good. So they have until May 2nd to make Iron Man not a total douchebag in the comics, then? Tall order.
Looks fantastic. I’ve never been much of an Iron Man fan, either, but I will definitely not be waiting for dvd on this one.
That was just beautiful.
Shellhead’s always been A-list, but in the last couple of years Marvel has been going bigger with him than the whole decade before them. Looks awesome, I can only hope it avenges Daredevil and Ghost Rider.
And did you catch the song playing as Shellhead made his first appearance? How utterly, totally, perfectly, sublimely perfect. :>
That song is much more fitting nowadays, where Stark’s actions actually DO kill “the people he once saved”. (Formation of the new Thunderbolts.)
Plus, “Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind?” I’d hazard to say that the answer is YES, at least as far as the writers of Civil War are concerned. Unless, of course, he’s a Skrull. In which case, it ALL makes sense. Sort of.
I’ve never liked iron man or found him interesting, but I am totally sold on seeing that film.
I want to see that NOW.
And using the “Iron Man” song isn’t new. They modified it for use as the theme in the nineties show.
It looks like corny crap.
Did you look at a different trailer, Sleestak?
Or do you not know what corny means?
It looks awful. Downey is sleepwalking through it, you can just tell from the trailer. And how many goofy sight gags were in a one minute trailer? Three? Four? Oh, punched wall so hard he got stuck.
Bah hah hah.
Hollywood has made me gun shy.
I wonder if even now some suits are convening to have the director re-shoot critical scenes…
“…And then his CAR turns into a GIANT ROBOT suit of ARMOR!”
“Brilliant! Call the Marketing & Licensing Department! I smell toy money!”
“Sir, I’m *from* the Marketing & Licensing Department and here is the new screenplay we drew up.”
I think we’re kind of lucky with Iron Man in the sense that it’s ALREADY such a great toy tie-in that we won’t have to worry about stuff like that.
But I certainly understand your trepidation, and I know you’re not saying this just to be a pain – you just think the movie looks corny, which is fair enough.
I still think it looks cool, though!
Iâ€™ve never liked iron man or found him interesting, but I am totally sold on seeing that film.
Ditto. Sleepwalking or no, Downey Jr absolutely sells Tony Stark to me…also, that suit may just be the coolest thing ever in the history of coolness.
Out of all of the Marvel films and their casting, getting Downey was by far the best of them. He has the cockiness down cold. I think this might be the Marvel film to beat.
2008…a good year for comic based movies
Downey is sleepwalking through it, you can just tell from the trailer.
I can’t. To me, it looks like he’s playing one of the most socially and financially successful men in the world, who’s already bored by how much people love him.
Or, as Marvel calls him, “Tony Stark”.
And how many goofy sight gags were in a one minute trailer? Three? Four? Oh, punched wall so hard he got stuck.
That’s one. I can’t think of any others. Care to elaborate?
I’ve never known anything or cared about Iron Man, and…
that looks really cool.
It looks amazing. I’m another one who was never really a big Iron Man fan, but I’ve been looking forward to that movie since I found out Downey Jr had been cast.
“Yes it would be very cool.”
“That one’s not bad”
Iron Man song.
Heh. Will there be corny political smack?
“If only our humvees had been armored!”
Forgive me, I’m probably missing the point, but: This is a comic book movie about a guy who can fly around in a cool iron suit that shoots repulsor rays, and we’re worried about a few corny, comparatively underplayed sight gags?
“This video is no longer available”
â€œThis video is no longer availableâ€
I’m honestly surprised we had access to it for as long as we did!!
Oh, come on. Now you’re really reaching. That’s not a joke, and it was in the trailer for, like, five seconds.
It’s not like it was the 90’s cartoon, shouting “I! Am! Iron Man!” over and over.
But really, why would they deprive us of being able to watch this poorly filmed trailer over and over and over and over and over and over and over again so that by May of next year we’d be so psyched that it’d break all box office records?
Anybody have an archived copy?
Yeah, I’ll admit, it DOES seem kinda silly to make a stink over an ADVERTISEMENT, but I bet they have exclusive deals set up with other movies where the trailer will “officially” debut, so I bet that’s the problem.
Hey all, I found a Limewire feed. No worries.
