I swear to Galactus, that grey pic of Iron Man just screams War Machine early type to me. and yes they even confirmed that Rhodes would become WM in the next movie or so! Yayyyyy!


Now if only he could face off against Beetle...that would be sweet. Like...Ultimate Beetle....

Between the apparent use of the gauntlets as some sort of boosters in the earlier trailer where he's flying with the F-22s and the way he launches a wrist rocket at the tank in the new trailer, I can't but wonder if he won't have repulsor rays yet in the movie... It would be strange, in the least, to see him without his primary weapons, but I suppose it would give it a bit of a more "realistic" feel...

The gauntlet weapons are 'repulsors', so I wouldn't be surprised if they are shown to 'repulse' him through the air. I prefer the comic book flight poses, though. This one just doesn't look as macho for some reason.

'Realistic'? The chest Unibeam was already unrealistic enough, so they would have removed that if they wanted more realism. Iron Man with conventional weapons, anyone?

Oh man, close match for The Dark Knight. Since Iron Man has more trailers, it's ahead of my list right now.

Stark has awesome one-liners, too.

^^LOL, "My God, you're a woman!" I love the scene where he brake checks the F-22's. Those flaps that pop up on his back are sweet. Is the leader of those terrorists supposed to be The Mandarin?! I saw him playing with a ring. Then again he could be Temugin too....

I remember reading that Favreau said the Mandarin is an enemy in this, but his presence isn't directly felt - he's more like Sauron in the first Lord of the Rings film.

Um, so, anybody else seen this film already? It got an early release here in the Philippines (watched it on its first day here last night, actually).

Pretty damn funny and awesome at the same time; plus, the mecha nut in me is immensely pleased with the gorgeous and painstaking detail accorded to the Mark III (especially that AI-controlled-robot-arm-assisted suit-up scene). And I can't put it any other way: Downey as the wry yet conflicted Stark is perfect, a true gem of a casting choice.

Well, there's that and the fact that Iron Man comes out tomorrow, whereas Dark Knight won't be out until mid-July or so.
So I'll probably wind up seeing Iron Man first as well.

I'll say. Stark has AWESOME lines in this movie.
My personal favorite goes along the lines of:
"Is it better to be feared or respected? I say...is it too much to ask for both?"

Guy demonstrates a new type of missile and toasts "to peace". Great stuff. And the "flight stabilizer" clip on the Y!Movies page is both awesome and hilarious.

Pushed back... I'm not surprised with the extreme lack of publicity....

Also, every single significant movie that I saw in the theaters in the Philippines when I went there last year always have an earlier release than here in North America. Talking about Pirates, Spider-Man, Die Hard, etc...

I've seen the early reviews for Iron Man, so far people are liking it.

Watched it today, to ward of demons (don't ask) on May Day. It was okay, although fairly lengthy. Downey was good as Stark in my opinion. The bad guy thing was all too obvious, as was the "I am a sympathetic supporting character, so I will die shortly" -typecast. I don't think that's a valid complaint though, given that this thing was written as a wet dream for mechanical engineers. It rivalled Transformers in the detail of mechanical gizmos going "klonk", "whirrr", "click" and so on. I watched it with two tech student friends, who sadly are into computer stuff. I comforted them by telling them they maybe could program the sarcastic A.I. instead. :D All in all, a pretty good summer movie.

My one minor gripe might be the usual stereotypical terrorist-types in the movie, who couldn't tell the difference between a battle-armor and a missile. They had the self-preservation instinct of your average roadkill.

For what it's worth that's been an element of IM's backstory from the first, it's just in the beginning it was stupid Vietcong and now it's stupid terrorists.

I haven't seen it yet, but I can't wait. For those who have, are his signature beam weapons (repulsor rays, uni-beam) featured in the movie or not?

As I said, a minor gripe. It wasn't too far away from the film's general mood. :) And yeah, he had the repulsor beams, hands and chest. He didn't plan them as weapons, though, or so it seemed (they were the stabilizers for flight or somesuch).

Saw the movie yesterday and was very impressed. Scratch that I was BLOWN AWAY! The comedic moments were really well integrated into the mostly serious story, and when Stark 'discovers' his repulsor weapons, classic.
Not having read any of the comics and only memories that a cartoon existed, I can't comment on characterisation, but I did like the way the actors.. well, acted.

Fav moments: First test of rocket boot thingies, and Starks attitude to the robot arm.

I saw it yesterday -- I thought it had a bit of the same problem that Transformers did. That is, a bit too much backstory and not quite enough kicking ass. Not to say that there wasn't a lot of stuff blowing up toward the end, but it seems like they gave just enough screen time to show each of the suits' gimmicks once and then move on. Oh well; minor nitpick in an otherwise impressive movie.
