This movie is going blow away a lot of the superhero flicks we've seen in the past. This one is Marvel's first movie that they are producing on their own. That's great because Marvel wont have to deal with some studio trying to bastardize their characters. Marvel is also producing The Incredible Hulk this year and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) will be making a brief appearance. In the following years we can expect Marvel to make Ant-Man, Captain America and Thor. All of those leading up to an Avengers movie.

It is a good time to be a comics fan

Next Sunday, there are 4 of us going. Probably the early evening show. Maybe the matinée though. Depends on the arrangements for the kids.

I am pumped to see what Marvel is going to do on there own now that the characters aren't being pushed and pulled by a studio. A Thor movie sounds interesting.

I'll let ya know what I think of it after the viewing.

I'm kicking my kids out to their grandmothers on Saturday

After I watch it I might watch it again with them.

A Thor movie sounds interesting.

Matthew Vaughn is directing. He did Stardust last year and directed Daniel Craig in Layer Cake back in O4. It could be really good if they get a good cast for it.

Guess the price?

oooh, oooh, oooh, me, me, me!!!

I just watched an entire run of Marvel movies on FX yesterday to get into the Superhero movie mode. They started off with Electra, then played Daredevil, Punisher, Fantastic Four and finished with Spiderman 2.1. I think they purposely started with the worst, and increased in quality as the day went on. Maybe to show that they're getting better at making Superhero movies?

Whatever it was, Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. hosted and showed sneak peeks and commentary from the making of the movie. It was pretty cool.

Because of the description in some of the reviews about Robert Downey Jr's ability to ad lib and his comedic timing, I think this will be the box office smash of the summer.

Fans want a story and characters to whom they can relate.

As many astute fans realize the best way to get a winner is to spend your money in the right place. That means a good director and a good writer.

Look at Aaron Sorkin - he took a drama about potentially boring politics and the White House and made The West Wing a top show. Same thing with Joss Whedon. He took a rather silly premise about a little blonde girl in high school fighting demons and made it work with the superb writing and dialog.

So if the previews are correct, you'll not only find IM to be the top draw, you'll see moviegoers going back and seeing it more than once.

I just hope they don't make the mistake of 'too fast action' and too many quick jump cuts.

Marvel has been trying to keep this a secret... not even showing this to press screenings. It seems all those involved have been under a gag order and I even suspect Avi Arad lost his job with Marvel over confirming what was then only a rumor.
Since they've tried to keep it such a secret I wont spoil it for you here.

Let's just say it has to do with the future of Marvel films.

Oooooh, thanks for the heads up
I will be sure to hold my husband and friends there til the credits ares done

Totally worth the wait through the credits!!!

I just watched it and am reporting it here. The movie was really fun to watch, and the bit at the very end was just the icing on the cake. I don't know if I can stand keeping it secret!

Robert Downey Jr really just seemed to play himself, and not Tony Stark. IMO Stark is much more serious and brooding. Tony Stark was always too serious in my opinion. And I don't think they played up Tony's alcoholism enough, but all in all, very fun to watch.

I do wish that they brought in a well known enemy of Iron Man's. Maybe Titanium man or the Crimson Dynamo (although the cold war is over).

This movie was AWESOME!!!!

I just wish I had read Brax's post about staying until after the credits.....

I had a feeling they would do something after the credits but I let my bladder and nicotine cravings get the best of me.

But like I said in another thread, and it is worth repeating, this movie felt like "Road to the Avengers pt. 1: Tony Stark". I hope The Incredible Hulk is "RTTA pt.2 : Bruce Banner"

I bet its something to do with the avengers at the end!
Let the flaming begin

After seeing that preview I'll have to take my brother and his girlfriend to see it tomorrow. That looks insane. Thank you.

I have a feeling that the teaser at the end, which I first thought had to do with an Avengers move, now that they've done several Marvel characters is actually about:

Well now that I know the end teaser, I've deleted my guess, b/c it, uh, just seems silly.

Go see it yourself!

Aparently I am going to see this movie tonight even though I have little interest in this charactor. I do however want to see if they put the Black Sabbath song Ironman into the film.

I was very dissapointed with desperado for not putting the Eagles song into the film.

But Ill let yall know what I thought of this film after I watch it.
