The IRON MAN teaser site launches with nifty logo!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a link to the teaser/logo site for Jon Favreau's IRON MAN. Favreau announced it today on his MySpace Page and I really dig the logo design. Very cool, simple... feels right, you know? The flick goes into production early next year with Terrence Howard as Rhodes and Robert Downey Jr. as the man behind the mask himself.

    So far so good...

    I wonder if they'll use any of Orson Scott Card's take

    by odysseus

    Either way... I'm so there. Downey Jr. = brilliant casting (and I'm not even a big fan of his).

    Odysseus... I want Card to work on Ender's Game

    And stop working on films that don't matter! He can do that after... ;)

    TERRIBLE!!

    by SPECT

    After seeing this pic, I definitely will avoid this movie. Never in my life have I been so disgusted with this representation of a comic book movie...and this is just the pic! You geeks should all get together and boycott this film!

    I WANT THE ORIGINAL IRON MAN!!

    by SPECT

    This is all wrong. If they don't even use the original outfit with the bucket helmet, this movie will tank. They'll probably use some b.s. high teck CGI armor. GIVE ME BUCKETHEAD!!!

    Bean: I agree!

    by odysseus

    I want Ender's Game, too! I was just wondering if whomever is writing Iron Man is using any of Card's work.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 1:35 p.m. CST

    I agree, Kid Z - It needs rivets and bolts

    by Doctor_Sin

    Or at least molten metal. It needs to scream "industrial educational film"! But, I am excited to see how it turns out. As it goes along, it may develop into El Suckola.

    Orson Scott Card

    by The Tao of Joe

    I interviewed OSC last summer about the Ender's film, and he said that while he had met with Iron Man's producers, they were not making a film based on his version of the story.

    Jon Favreau is the SHEEE!

    by Redrockmullet

    Seriously... have you ever seen PCU? Best college flick ever!

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 2:32 p.m. CST

    SPECT - Agreed!

    by SilentP

    This is all wrong! Anyone who's seen the Iron Man logo knows it's not supposed to look even *remotely* like this. It just shows a total lack of respect for the fans, critics, porn stars, and the deaf. This is not the Iron Man logo I grew up with. They may as well call this movie Zinc Man. IMLINO!!!!

    TRON

    by Mooly

    This movie made me long for a new Tron than for any Iron Man movie. It's pretty much the exact same.

    The Iron Man logo...

    analysis

    by epitone

    Since it's Jon Favreau, the logo is awesome. If it were Brett Ratner, the same logo would have sucked. If it were George Lucas, the logo would have raped everyone's childhood. If it were Michael Bay, the logo would represent everything that's wrong with filmmaking. If it were Tarantino, Harry would have posted the logo himself and used some really inappropriate language about his anatomy to describe it. If it were Spielberg, the logo would have been WOTW SUCKED! SHUT UP MUNICH ROCKED! and so forth.

    by dtpena

    only in red.. huh?

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 6:18 p.m. CST

    Shut Up!

    by Jellylover

    It's just a teaser POSTER!!! I swear you guy's just bitch to get guy's like me pissed off...well done. And if you want the "original" suit then you should want the original dialouge with the original time-line to go with it. Keep it modern. The suit, the story, Tony's problems and genius. And when Rhodes suits up, play Kiss' "War Machine"! That would be sweet. "Gonna bite the hand that feeds me!" ....sorry.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 6:40 p.m. CST

    At Downey's Not Affleck.

    by msspurlock

    He can actually play someone besides himself. He is way too short, though. But then, so was Michael Keaton.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 6:41 p.m. CST

    Maybe it is not his "logo"

    by Lone Gunman

    but rather just a close-up of his armor's chest plate with the rest of the armor in shadows...

    Doesn't look serious

    by Argentino

    It would be fine if it was for the upcoming animated movie, but it's for the live action one! it should be high tech and cool looking, not this cartoony font with cartoone chest ray (or wathever it's called)

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 8:58 p.m. CST

    Re: It's his chest-plate, morons

    by MachinaMan

    Yet you cannot seem to make the rather simple leap of turning the light emanating from the circle green instead of yellow, which would make it look virtually exactly like Green Lantern's lantern. Interesting.

    Pack away the Pythonesque, condescending verbage. Comic Book Guy resurrected that dead horse ages ago and buried it soon thereafter. The graphic also looks like the fucking headlamp on The Polar Express or the Hogwart's Express...but it isn't is it? You seem incapable of making the simple deduction that it is what it is. Now, go home and let granny dig that Optimus Prime outta your ass.

    downey needs too toughen up

    by pipergates

    He's a great actor but he's been looking too soft lately for a superhero,even a mechanical one.Too much party-party,man.

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 5:59 a.m. CST

    I remember the 60's Iron Man when....

    by Rolling_Stone

    He would fight crime using the "Power of his Transistors" in his bright yellow Iron Man suit. For you kiddies under 35 transistors were what came after radio tubes and before RAM.

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 6:09 a.m. CST

    I got nothing from this.

    by Reelheed

    There could have been more to it. Iron man's design is all about the way the pieces of armour move over one another so they could have introduced some sort of carapace design to the lettering. Also aren't the eyes more iconic than the disk in the centre of the chest? I'm interested to see where they go with this pic butfrom this I just get a "meh".

    When did Howard officially sign on?

    Last I read, he was Favreau's first choice and he'd been approached, but had not yet confirmed.

    by MachinaMan

    The better part of me thinks that I should let this go, since this discussion is obviously the most important conversation that you are going to participate in this year. And I would hate to spoil that for you. Though, at the same time, since you yourself name at least two examples of others things that the logo looks like, it means that you too must be some sort of moron, no;)

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 10:57 a.m. CST

    What design? That's like... a font. --Brainless work.

    by JDanielP

    You know, ...I continue to be sadly disappointed when it comes to any news on this project. I'm quite a large fan of IRON-MAN... but wow, where is this thing headed??? Somebody, please, ...tell me, ...how does this logo has anything to do with iron? Oh, yeah, I get it. It must be the "man" that holds more influence over the design. Yeah. RRRRrrrriiight. --People, get a clue. Just look at the history of "IRON-MAN" comic book logos and pull from that, ...at least to SOME degree. But then, this production does nothin' but piss me off... so why should I help you? --You know, within those rounds with Sly Stallone, he described the difference between action stars of years past compared to today. IRON-MAN is a man of those days past (with a mind for modern technology). I respect Robert Downey Jr., ...enough, ...as an actor. But he will never be Tony Stark, in my eyes.

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 11:04 a.m. CST

    That could EASILY be turned into a GREEN LANTERN logo.

    by JDanielP

    My wife's reaction was, "Lame." She continued, "And besides, that looks like the Green Lantern logo." And you know what? She's right. I could easily see the white circle having the symbolic green lantern inside. --OK, that's all I'm helping you people. For now, anyway.

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 1:13 p.m. CST

    Yup Your Wife Is Right

    by CaptDanielRoe

    My thoughts exactly. This should have been a picture of Downey in a gutter with a bottle of whiskey and people would say WTF? The way they did the first time they saw the old bat logo ads that were so effective, but are now so overdone as to be meaningless, like this one....

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 4:34 p.m. CST

    Still feel Howard was perfect

    by wilsonfisk89

    Really. He has that Debonair Tony Stark Charm, but also inner rage and mania. To me Downey is sort of an over the hill slob type, I dont really believe him being an agile warrior. SO what was it, Howard not a big enough name? Or some kind of BS relectance of a black lead? In any case he would have been perfect and Downey loses credibility.

  • Dec. 25, 2006, 1:50 a.m. CST

    Casting...

    by Cold Winter Wind

    Ya know, I give Depp his props on being a good actor; but I've got two problems with him as Stark: 1) He's too slim & pretty. I envision Stark having somewhat more heft and a grizzled, rugged charm. And 2) when I watch Depp acting I have trouble forgetting that it's Depp acting. When I see Downey, I have trouble remembering that it's Downey. So I'm definitely down with Downey. And Favs has an open-ended line of geek cred at my bank. I'll take time off from work to see this film.
