Published at: May 2, 2007, 12:49 p.m. CST

Merrick again… We’ll make this one short and sweet. Here’s IRON MAN’s Mark III suit from the forthcoming movie. It frakkin’ rocks if you ask me. Looks really...right. To my eyes, at least.

LOVE IT! Can't wait to see this in motion...to see how movement is handled. The image came from Entertainment Weekly; ‘twas in an article you can find HERE!

    Now that is how you stay faithful to the original. Iron Man is looking better and better the more I see of it. Now if only that talentless hack Bay had stayed faithful to the Transformer designs.

    hard to believe that actually exists. i can't look at it without thinking it was pulled straight off a cover of the comic. i seem to remember thinking the same thing the first time i saw the spider-man costume. pretty good company to be in.

  • May 2, 2007, 12:42 p.m. CST

    Head is spot on. Shoulders are a LITTLE bulky.

    by SydBarretsMyDad

    Still, I like it. The hardest part about an outfit like this for a movie is making us believe it COULD exist in the real world. I can suspend my disbelief for this. Good job.

    who posted this picture. I said, "That's not new--he's been wearing that for a long time."<p> Of course, I meant he's been wearing it IN THE COMIC. Good to see the movie version does not stray from that representation of it. Now, how does he go poop?

    Badass

    by Bald Evil

    That is a great rendition of the Iron Man suit. It's gonna look cool as hell onscreen. All I'm hoping for now is that the villains end up looking suitably cool too. I'm still not sold on Mandarin! Maybe Dreadknight could make an appearance, or Crimson Dynamo.

  • May 2, 2007, 12:47 p.m. CST

    You're gonna like the way Iron Man looks. I guarantee it.

    Don't call it the Winston suit

    by Blueberry

    As the design is clearly done by Adi Granov and it's not so different from the Extremis suit.

  • May 2, 2007, 12:52 p.m. CST

    Like Robocop, but not ridiculous.

    by Christopher3

    Very elegant, with a touch of jet-age aesthetic. Good job.

    You know who would look cool in that armor?

    by singsingjohnny

    Fucking-A

    by Mosquito March

    The more I see and hear from this film, the more excited I get about it. I've never been a huge Iron Man fan, but it looks like Favreau is really taking this shit seriously. In terms of comic movies I want to see, this is up there with THE DARK KNIGHT.

  • May 2, 2007, 12:57 p.m. CST

    Very cool...

    by Ninja Nerd

    Hmmmm.....this may get the bad FF/FF2 taste out of the collective geek mouth. I may have to go home and crank up Guitar Hero so I can plays me some 'Iron Man' tunage!

  • May 2, 2007, 12:58 p.m. CST

    Not fair to compare it to Robocop

    by Gwai Lo

    It looks just like the suit in the comics, which was around long before Robocop. And you can't see his mouth, which is probably for the best given the facial hair that Downey grew for the role.

  • May 2, 2007, 1 p.m. CST

    Fav has done everything right so far...

    by just pillow talk

    The rays of geekness shine upon you...(for now, until they turn on your like a rabid dog) And it does not look like Robocop. You could say then that Robocop looks like Iron Man, since Iron Man was first.

  • May 2, 2007, 1 p.m. CST

    That is how you do a superhero suit!

    by eric haislar

    It looks like it jumped right of the page

  • May 2, 2007, 1:01 p.m. CST

    Oh my god

    by Silverglade

    That looks fantastic. Wow just wow. I am seriously energized now about this film.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:02 p.m. CST

    um, Gwai Lo beat me to it

    Now if only we would hear the words "Avengers Assemble!"

    HOLY CRAP! I just jizzed in my pants!!!

    by wolvenom

    THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME! reminds me of how he looks in marvel's civil war. All imposing and powerful and awesome... Hopefully stark isn't as much of a dick in this movie as he is in civil war though. Although just seeing this image gots me all fucking jazzed to see a captain american vs. ironman match if they ever make civil war into a movie or trilogy or something in the future. Im so glad they didn't fuck with his iconic look. now if only the people fucking with batman so much could learn this lesson.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:03 p.m. CST

    Something else..

    by Loosejerk

    looks nice, now if I only liked the character

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    it translates well

    by stoptalking

    With things like transformers I can understand making design changes, cause if not you're making an 80's action movie. But this suit translates pretty well from the page to the screen, it would appear. So keeping it the same was a good instinct.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Attention Michael Bay...

    by Hairy Nutsack

    ...this is how you adapt genre material to the big screen.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    i really want a civil war movie .... or trilogy now

    by wolvenom

    IM HAVING A GEEKGAZM! after seeing this I just want to see captain america back on the big screen now...

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Anyone else not sure about Favreau directing???

    by Faust_8

    I loved Elf but this is a superhero movie. Can he handle Iron Man ?

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    One Year Away Exactly!

    by eric haislar

    I can not wait!

  • May 2, 2007, 1:08 p.m. CST

    It looks just like the Adi Granov concept art

    by Gwai Lo

    When that art came out a few months ago I thought it would be great if that's what it ended up looking like. Now this picture comes out and not only does it look like the art, it looks EXACTLY like the art. I'm stoked. To be fair though, it's an easier design to translate to film. Of all superhero suits, Iron Man is up there with the most plausible and least gaudy. No one is fucking with Batman, it's harder to translate grey and blue spandex, a cape and little pointy ears to real life. Unless you have someone who can sell it, like Adam West.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:10 p.m. CST

    This movie will kick so much ass

    by QuinnTheEskimo

    And if it doesn't, it will be one helluva disappointment.<p>Come on Favs, don't let me down.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:11 p.m. CST

    Not bad, not bad.

    by DerLanghaarige

    Let's see how it looks in the movie!

  • May 2, 2007, 1:11 p.m. CST

    I'm also not sure about Favreau.

    by Gwai Lo

    I turned off Elf about halfway through, and I thought Zathura looked like Jumangi 2: Space Jumangi. And not in a good way. But those films both seemed more oriented towards children, and I like what he has said in interviews so far and the cast and crew he has assembled. He seems to want to make an 80's style Spielberg/Zemeckis/Lucas style fantasy action movie. And I'm cool with that.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:11 p.m. CST

    It's no 'Galactus Cloud'...

    by Det. John Kimble

    And that's a good thing. Looks riawesulome.

    by Kid Z

    ...and doesn't suck? Now there's a concept! The suit looks great, nice amalgam of the classic red & gold suit and the crappy, overdesigned suit IM wears these days in the comics. But the classic outweighs the crappy and the thing works.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:14 p.m. CST

    Maybe they should get Peter Weller for the voice

    by Err

    The company releasing Iron Man decided that it was too hard to portray a man in armor realistically so he is being replaced by a cloud.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:24 p.m. CST

    I think it's perfect

    by iron pills

    fuckin great lookin' armor! This is a character like Spiderman, that the design of the suit cannot veer far away from the comic pages. This outfit is iconic and to change it up too much would be crazy. But like a couple of people have brought up, still kinda unsure about the director. I've never seen Elf (sorry) or Zathura, so I don't know what to expect from this. Well, this is Favs' first crack at a superhero film, so he has the benefit of the doubt. Mark Steven Johnson talked the talk about the Ghost Rider character, how he was a big fan and all that other stuff and look what we got! He directed Daredevil, which to me wasn't colossally bad, but not really great either. Sony should have known better. But I'm VERY optimistic about Iron Man though.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:24 p.m. CST

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    to look that good instead of the cheesefest that was the Reb Brown uniform. Hey, I loved Reb in Uncommon Valor. That was the first rated R movie I ever saw. My oldest cousin took my younger cousin, my brother and myself. Hackman, Swayze, Cobb, Ward, Dollman, Al Bundy's buddy when he was skinny. Ah, memories. Okay back to Capt America. The motorcycle helmet and plastic shield were awful. Even Christopher Lee couldn't save it. And don't say they didn't have the technology for cool uniforms. To that I respond: Darth Vader circa 1977.

    I never would have thought that a Jon Favreau IRON MAN movie would have me anticipating it more than a Batman sequel, but ... he sure has. Between the image of the grey armor, Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and this ... and supposedly this is a real working suit? I'm sold. I'm really excited for this flick.

  • May 2, 2007, 1:28 p.m. CST

    Gwai Lo--

    by zb.brox

    I think they mean C-list in terms of popularity and fame amongst real people, not in the comics themselves. However, Iron Man still definitely qualifies for B-list at *worst*. And that's if you assume the only A-listers in the world are Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Hulk, and Wolverine. Iron Man is on par with Green Lantern, Flash, the Fantastic Four, and Thor in the sub-royalty strata of superhero fame.

    by MasterShake

    Man, love that Favreau's going old school with Iron Man. So far, everything looks very good, but Iron Man will only be as good as his villain. Look what happened to Doom, and how that fucked up FF. Iron Man hasn't had too many A-list enemies, and the fact that the reported villain in the flick is the Mandarin (magic power rings!!??), has me worried.

    Debating the popularity of heros (A-B-C)

    by Fecal Debris

    Here's my A-list: Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, Hulk, Captain America. Maybe MAYBE Wonder Woman. And possibly Fantastic Four. Let's face it, FF are HUGE in the comic world, but nobody in my family could have told you who the fuck they were before the movie came out. They still can't, except for my kids.<p> My B-List: Fantastic Four, ALL of the X-Men, including Wolverine, Daredevil, Iron Man, etc etc. I freakin'LOVE Wolverine, and back in 1982 when I read the books I didn't understand why he wasn't more popular. The thought of a movie with him in it would have made me come, and I was only eleven at the time. But again, like FF, my guess is that while FF and X-Men are HUGE in the comics world, the population at large would be hard pressed to explain who they were, much less which heroes were in those groups and what their powers were. I would put people like Punisher and Ghost Rider at the bottom of my B-List.<p> My C-List: People like Green Arrow and Green Lantern, and Aquaman might be able to squeeze into the bottom of my B-list, but ONLY because the Superfriends TV cartoon might have made people more familiar with them. Otherwise, they are relagated to my C-company, along with people like Black Panther, Moon Knight, Swamp Thing, Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, Power Man and Iron Fist, anyone in Alpha Flight, Power Pack...etc. I'm right, just accept it.

    by Gwai Lo

    I agree, I just don't like the idea that the only A listers are the ones you mentioned. I think some of the lesser known characters are still A-list even though they are sub-royalty, like Silver Surfer, or Dr. Doom, or Iron Man, or the Punisher. I think most laymen would recognize those names. I think the B-listers are characters that would not be recognized by the average laymen, but still have some fanboy cred. And C-listers aren't recognized by any laymen, and are shunned by fanboys. Anything lower than that and no one would be including it in a movie.

Not so much" ...anyway...The suit is is perfect, spot-on, as another said, believable because Winston didn't make the mistake of over-designing it. btw, that's the only similarity to the RoboCop suit...simplicity of design... All the pieces indeed in place for a great summer blockbuster..Downey is by far the best actor to appear in a comic movie- yeah, I include McKellen in that lis- t& that's enough 4 me ...Viva la Fe!

    by Fecal Debris

    You are correct that a hero is (partly) only as good as his villain. That's why Iron Man is not on my A-list. Ask anybody on the street who Iron Man's fuckin' nemesis is, and they can't tell you. I read Iron Man for a while back in the day, and I couldn't name ONE bad guy that was pretty much exclusive to his storyline. I don't know who the hell Mandarin is. They coulda played it safe in the movie and not had a supervillain at all, but rather a regular bad guy with lots of resources, or a bad conglomerate or army or some shit. Ask someone on the street who Spidey and Supes' bad guys are, and they WILL come up with names like Lex Luthor, Doc Ock, Electro, Sandman and maybe MAYBE Brainiac and Goblin.

    Either way, it's cool. I don't think Iron Man is that great of a superhero due to his suit - it's too rockateer for my tastes. Also, I consider Iron Man to be a C-list-super hero. The only A's are Superman, Batman and Spider-man. @FecalDebris = Apache Chief and Black Vulcan and Moon Knight are all D-List. Power Man is fucking F-list, sorry dude.

    The villain

    by Boromir187

    Mandarin is not the villain in this. I know Favreau initially spoke about using him, but I guess he abandoned the character to be used in a sequel instead. The villain of this film will be Obadiah Stane (aka Iron Monger), with Jeff Bridge in the role. Bridges has shaved his head for the part. I suspect Mandarin will pop up in the planned second film, providing this one does well. . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obadiah_Stane

    by trombone

    There is a definite power ranger danger here. Wasn't as excited by this as by the Mach I that was posted a couple of weeks ago. To be honest, I REALLY don't like the idea of Mandarin being the enemy and am VERY happy to see Obadiah Stane as the enemy using Stark's own technology. One thing that drives me crazy is when (as in the crappy last 6 issues of the Ultimates)--when comics pick up on the warped hate that the media is putting out towards Middle Eastern and Eastern countries. So Mandarin as a bad-guy would just plug into that. But (as we learned in DKR), the REAL bad-guys are right here in the US of A. That's why Lex is such a powerful and memorable bad-guy for me. And the idea of a super-hero running around and fixing the shit he fucked up in the first place sounds fanTAStic.

    That's a great design! Pays homage to the original suit, adds in a little of the modern version, a nearly perfect job. My only small gripe is that it appears to look more like plastic than iron. But I won't really complain until I see it up on the big screen.

    We're missing the Universe part

    by Jack Parsons

    The problem with these movies is the great unwashed have no sense that all of these flicks are set *in the same world*. The fun of comics is in the shared universe, the common environment. When the FF thunder by, we should occasionally see Spider-Man swinging in the background, or Ghost Rider cutting through an expressway while the main action is foreground in the Iron Man feature. And a team up of any of the movie characters would drive the fans absolutely insane. Pity the film rights are spread out amongst so many studios.

I hate it when they mess up the costumes from the books. This looks stellar!!!

    Notice it's "Mark 3", Doc_strange?

    by Jack Parsons

    We've seen the Mark 1, the one he builds in Afghanistan, and now we see the Mark 3, the current version as it exists in the comics. Maybe Mark 2 will be the classic red-and-gold tights and trunks, more-or-less, and you'll be happy? They have to hold out some surprises!

    I'd be interested in seeing the article you mentioned -- I know a guy who was up for stunt doubling duties for the suited Iron Man (another double will be used for RDJ, who's 5'8" or so. The suit character is 6'1"). Oh -- my friend isn't CGI. In addition, Favreau isn't that big a fan of CG -- so I'd be surprised if he was doing more CG suit stuff than he absolutely had to.

    by Colonel Creedon

    since Granov drew the teaser poster in July and as I hoped they kept the circular Uni-beam chest-light as opposed to the modern triangular version. The shoulder plates and knee-joints are more like the armour worn by Iron Man in 2002 as opposed to Granov's later designs. It was obvious that there would be tweaking and the armour wouldn't match exactly to an armour in the book but I'm still genuinely surprised by how faithful Favreau is to the source material. As a reader of Iron Man since Tales of Suspence and a supporter of those who serve the elected government: This armour gets thumbs up!

Seriously, if you look at him in terms of the Marvel Universe, he's easily one of the five to ten most important and iconic characters. He's one of the "big 3" of the Avengers--Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor--and that puts him at least on par with the Fantastic Four.

The she-terminator for example was modelled in 3d and they used rapid prototyping and computer controlled milling to make the final thing, and if anything else justifies a similar approach it'd be this. There's been a ton of digital stuff since T3, whether the final result is practical or not. I like that they seem to use it for the right reasons.

    While i like the "mark 3" (or whatever it is... ironmanarmory.com/armors.html shows naming conventions aren't standard), I want to see the classic superhero-looking suit (pick any of the red/gold, non-bulky-legs-style ones off the site above) one too! This one is cool, but too roboty! too cyborgy! I want at least one shot of a practical costume that looks like the classic combo-"tights"/machine look. This one implies... I dunno... that anyone can crawl into one of these things and join the avengers? yeah I know, I know. That's pretty much how it is in the books. But still, something about that Marvel Superheroes cartoon look that I love that implies "costume" rather than "machine suit". Who's with me?

Hope it delivers.<P>Couldn't resist the childish rant, but Fuck You Bay. This is how you respect and IP. Tool.<P>Looking forward to Howard as War Machine whilst RDJr. is playing the drunk Stark in the sequel - could make for some great drama if they are brave enough i.e. they have the talent, hope the suits give them carte blanche (sp?). This could really be a kick ass franchise. Hope they don't blow it.

    Faithful adapdation = predictable movie?

    by Chishu_Ryu

    The Iron Man movie suit looks like the comic book Iron Man, but on that note, does a faithful adaptation necessarily make a great movie? I'm not really familiar with Favreau as a director, but I don't see him in the same league as a Tim Burton or Ang Lee, or even Sam Raimi. Could it be the Iron Man director is taking everything from the comics cause he couldn't come up with anything better other than snappy dialogue? I appreciated Tim Burton's Batman, Ang Lee's Hulk, and to a degree, Bryan Singer's X-Men because they had the talent and unique vision to give me( a comic book fan) something I wasn't expecting, a new take on familiar characters. If they had given me 100% Stan Lee inspired scriptage, I'd have to say, I might have been bored. Does Jon Favreau have a similiar unique vision? Or will he give us something we've already read already? I'm just saying, so far, the visuals for this Iron Man movie look cool and faithful and all, but I wouldn't get the hopes up too high. That being said...Fly, Iron Man, Fly!

  • May 2, 2007, 11:16 p.m. CST

    Of course a faithful adaptation could suck if

    the story and dialogue are no good. And if the casting is off. However, being faithful to the source material is certainly not a detraction, unless the original source material sucks and you're improving on the idea. Which excludes most Hollywood product.

Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Terrance Howard, and Gweneth Paltrow? Not to mention that I do like Favs as a director and to hell with the haters, Zathura wasn't that bad at all. As far as a movie geared towards kids, there's been a lot worse out there in the last few years. I cannot wait for that first teaser and see everything working in motion.

  • May 3, 2007, 12:46 a.m. CST

    I am pleased. The pressure is on RDJ & his Tony Stark.

    by JDanielP

    I'd like to have a better view of the suit, to see how it all comes together around the thigh, ...though I can see that they've done a wonderful job with the design. But as a trained artist, I'm going to play hardball. I'm giving this design a grade A ...but I'm going to tell you how this suit would've gotten an A+ (from me, anyway). During that split-second that I first glimpsed at the picture, I felt that the shoulders were a little too big and bulky. But I quickly realized that it's a little more complicated than that. These parts of the suit have to register a sense of scale against one another, ...and for RDJ, you're going to need that increase in shoulder size to give him a more imposing look, ...to not look underwhelming against the size of the helmet. However, (most importantly) I would increase the size of the arm pieces, around the biceps. Otherwise, the proportions of the suit are only a bit off from what I would want to see. Great job, so far. Now, ...if only RDJ surprises me with his performance as Tony Stark.

    The hands are not in proportion

    by bomardv

    Look at the failed 1997 Spawn movie and we can see some similarities: smaller hands vs big head pieces, it is very close to Adi Granov's designs BUT the proportions still seem to be a problem, even for Stan Winston. Yes I am nit-picking and yes I could not have done a finer job becuse I do not have the mr Winston's talent,it is just an observation in proportions.

I think all of the Marvel movies were good; granted, I prefer the DC movies (and the heroes they're based on), but the only possibly bad Marvel flick is "Elektra". Yet, because they don't follow the source material or the suit isn't perfect they're shunned by the fans. How is that right? -Gary

    by just pillow talk

    I agree with you that each movie adaption doesn't have to stick 100% to the comic, but it certainly must be true to the source material. The characters have to act like they were written. Now that's not always easy when they have a long history and each writer does his own thing with the character, but you kind of know how the character should act. <p>For instance, the first FF got 3 of the 5 characters completely wrong (Reed, Sue, Doom). That's a problem.<p>Superman Returns made Supes a stalker/eavesdropper. And of course Kryptonite didn't affect him while lifting the rock. <p>I personally don't care if they change appearances a bit (X-men), but I thought the first two of those movies were great. Wolvie was Wolvie, but Cyclops got shafted. And it doesn't bother me that they wore black leather as their costumes, I certainly didn't expect them to be wearing bright yellow/red/blue costumes.

    supergary452 (by the way, are you more super than 451?). I have no problem if the deviate from the comics a bit, as long as the 'feel' is the same. The FF wasn't as bad as I thought, but then again, I didn't have any expectations for it. Yes, the effects were pretty good, but they just ruined Doom, and Sue and Reed were completely wrong. Look it the first Spidey. It doesn't matter if it's organic or mechanical web shooters, he's still Spidey. He acted like Spidey (Yeah, I know, it doesn't crack it up like he should when he's webslinging around), so it was Spidey for me. One could argue though, that they still should have been made by Petey. That's who he was, a bit of a scientific wiz, and it certainly helped him defeat foes in the beginning (Electro for one).<p>Does that mean we are the same person HeWhoCannotBeNamed? Freaky.

    bomardv- For functionality, let the "small hands" slide

    by JDanielP

    Yes, the hands do look small. I was going to mention it myself but there's not a lot you can do about THAT... so long as the character requires use of his fingers while in costume (like for pushing important buttons). Sure, they could bulk up the back of the hands and fingers. In fact, that wouldn't be a bad thing to do, either. But all in all, I'm really happy with what I'm seeing here. When Hollywood manages to get this close to the bullseye, I don't complain too much. And wrong or right, we like to share our opinions on how things can improve, from each individual's unique perspective. And that's mostly what these talkbacks are about, aren't they? Or, at least, it should be. And I suppose in earlier talkbacks, I may've been a bit harsh on Robert Downey, Jr. in getting the role of Tony Stark. But Stark is a man's man, you know? From my own perspective, a person needs a certain something... I find it hard to come up with the words... but we all know that type of character, don't we? Tony Stark is a man who would feel quite at home (even) with the high-strung men in "PREDATOR", you know what I mean? (And I can't imagine RDJ being part of that group in PREDATOR.) There are aspects to Stark's character that I just can't see in Robert Downey, Jr. Sure, RDJ is a talented actor and he will certainly have the genius angle covered. But I'm not so sure that his acting chops can satisfy what I look for in the complete character, if they want to remain faithful to the character that I know. That's just the way I see it. Whatever the case, I hope this turns out to be a great flick. Despite how I feel about the interpretation of Tony Stark, there's no reason why this can't be a different animal, ...one that still has bite.

    The comedy wasn't the best; then again, FF wasn't marketed as a comedy. But Johnny Storm/Ben Grimm and the actor Chris Evans in general made the movie better, in my opinion. And again, even though I liked it overall I have to say that it was only "pretty good", not "I loved it". If FF2 is the same except with Silver Surfer and more/better action sequences, I'll be happy. And I think everyone's over-reacting about the galactus-cloud decision. If they get to a third film, then it would be a great reveal for a 3rd film to finally see Galactus. -gary

    maintain your optimism for FF2 and Supe Returns again

    by just pillow talk

    cause I sure don't have much for either one. And I really think the cloud decision is a very bad one. If they were doing it as a 'vehicle' to hide Galactus' movement until he 'announces' his arrival to Earth and is revealed as the giant purple man we all know and love, that would be cool. But that's not what they are doing from what I read. Galactus is a cloud. That's just piss poor.

    About the cloud being too greyish and foggy. "Should have been a purple cloud! Sob...."

    I'm *thrilled*...

    by mbeemer

    ... they're using a real suit whenever possible and not all-CGI-all-the-time. (Though it would be cool to see the suit deploy in memory plastic fashion like the Batmobile shields in the first Burton Batman.)<p><p> Unfortunately, the Civil War comics have taught me to *despise* Tony Stark, who used to be one of my heroes. Guess I'll just have to imagine this taking place in another universe where Iron Man is a good guy instead of a fascist.

    Superman Returns Again!!!!!!

    by liljuniorbrown

    I understand the hate for Hulk (to talky) and i guess to an extent FF (there was so so much potential to do more,they fucked Doom over) but Superman Returns was a great film, a true blockbuster. I know given the chance we will all be pleasently suprised by SR2, Dark Knight, Iron Man,and Incredible Hulk. Atleast the directors and actors are in place. My beef with FF is that it should have been on the level of a Star Wars original trilogy with Doom being the Vader charactor of course,Reed as Obi Wan,Johnny as Luke,Sue as Princess Lea, and Ben as the Han/Chew combo. It could have started in space,then back to NY then back to a huge outerspace battle with Doom's eventual team up for a Galactus showdown. Couldaaa been great!!!!

    Superman Returns was fucking BORING

    by Steve Rogers

    Supes was a non-presence in his own flick (Clark Kent as a character got the total shaft), Bosworth was hideously miscast, Luthor was under-used (and AGAIN wit the stupid henchwoman who betrays him at the end?), and there was no decent action other than the plane crash. Punch something Supes, for Crissakes!! It was a suck off to Donner and tedious as fuck. To stay on topic though, this Iron Man suit still totally rocks.

  • May 3, 2007, 11:02 a.m. CST

    I agree, Steve Rogers

    by Fecal Debris

    I have the DVD, but cannot watch it. To do so would be a chore. Were it not so extraordinarily tedious, and memorable for that only, it would be completely forgettable. They should have saved the plane sequence for when they had a better movie to wrap around it. What a blast of diarhea in the face that was.

    According To Michael Bay...

    by MarkoOhNo

    ...this looks nothing like Iron Man. He should look more like an ape, but with tremendous chicken feet and tentacles for hands. He should also be totally covered in wires - less metal plates, they make him look like a toy. It's also completely unrealistic that he'd fire energy weapons from his hands. (Come on, seriously!) Instead, he should use a baseball bat or maybe carry a taser. Aside from this, Mr Bay says he looks good. Just slap some flame decals on his chest - cause everything metallic looks better with flames - and he's good to go.

    The vfx

    by Shaner Jedi

    It will be interesting to see what ILM is doing on this show. I know Favreau is a fan of practical stuff. Ben Snow, who worked recently at Weta on KK, is leading the ILM effort. I don't know what the split will be between them and Winston though.

    "some minor color problems".?

    by WILPOWER

    Have faith SpencerTrilby - this is just a jpeg. The internet is limited in colors - so odds are this isn't a 100% representation of the color. Besides, color is dependant upon how much light hits it, so it will look slightly different in hue from scene to scene. Now I'm just nit-picking. Looks awesome - even if mobitlity comes across a bit stiff. Metal can't bend and be as fluid as it appears in comics. Again, I gotta say: This is probably the only comic book movie adaption (from what we have seen so far -armors and cast) that has been so highly praised by normallly anal retentive fanboys. Awesome work LORD WINSTON!Good on ya Favreau! "VERY MONEY BAB!"

    2020!Suit looks like Iron Man 2020

    Anyone that doubt's Favreau is a great director

    by Engelhast

    Really needs to sit down without bring in your adult cynical bullshit baggage and watch Zathura. The guy so totally gets when to go with CGI and when to go with practical effects. Plus he always seems to get a damn fine performance out of children so I am sure he will work well with Downey Jr.

    "...exited about this based on THE SUIT?"

    by Silverglade

    "So everyone's so exited about this based on....THE SUIT?!?!?!?" Not only the suit. The fact that everything known so far, each decision, each announcement - has been "correct" to fans, good news. As somone said earlier, "so far Fav has done everything right." The sum of all of that = the building excitement. He's got people's confidence to this point.

  • May 3, 2007, 3:03 p.m. CST

    Respect

    by a rolling stone

    I think Fav respects the genre. He's not trying to make a name for himself by changing the mythology around. From the photos we've seen (and that's all we've seen), it looks like he's doing his best to translate the story from one medium to the next. Of course I could be wrong- we still haven't seen a clip or lick of footage. But if respect is there, it will reflect in the final product.

    I hope the M3 suit is made of composite material

    by ThePilgrim

    I understand the need for having the first suit be of real iron but shouldn't the 3rd suit be some sort of carbon fiber and steel power fused suit (for movement reason alone!!!) Hear me out... Rapid Prototype machines can print out steel parts. They print the steel power in layers and when the part is finished it's tossed into a over and the heat fuses this powder into a solid. Maybe Tony finds that guy that invented the Anti Bear Suit (this suit is awsome!)Some how these two are friends and he uses his formula combined with Iron Oxide to make the M3 suit(Maybe Tony starts a armor company for troops in Iraq and goes to this guy to get it done, and thats how they become friends or maybe the anti bear guy goes to him after the news of the first suit goes global) Tony has the M3 suit drawn up on a computer in 3d and then printed out. It's made of iron oxide, cyanoacrylate (superglue LOL), carbon fiber particals, and orb spider silk. So it's iron but iron that super strong and super lightweight! http://tinyurl.com/yrw2hd /\heres the anti bear suit dude, he is currently working on armor concepts for the troops in Iraq.
