    by superduper3000

    Iron Man is nice, but why no mention of the GLORIOUS Watchmen character pix??? Why?? <BR> <BR> Here they are, hopefully Harry will get around to posting these up! They're from Z. Snyder himself, so you know they're legit!! Enjoy! <BR> <BR> http://tinyurl.com/384o6a

    by skywalkerfamily

    Get me one stat!

  • My problems with 'I am Legend', 'Ang Lee's Hulk' and the above picture. The director should have the guts to say to the CG dept : It looks CG ! How hard is it to photo a real armour ? Shouldnt be too expensive to make a real suit for the close ups (in terems of a studio movie) ? Cameron got it right 17 years ago when he mixed CG and real props. (Tippet's handywork) especially for the close ups. Sigh.

    It's a pretty good poster,

    by Juggernaut125

    but I'd personally go with a frame shot taken from the end of the second trailer. With the tank already exploded in the background as Iron Man casually walks away.

    Hey, dumbasses ...

    by Tal the Reviewer

    The poster is obviously inspired by classic movie posters painted by Drew Struzan such as the Star Wars trilogy, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future. It's a throwback, but a charming one and reflects the care and good taste of the people involved in this film. The only mistake they made was not actually getting Drew Struzan to paint it.

    The cast...

    by SarumanTheChef

    You look at the cast as listed on there, and if you isolated that from the rest of the poster, you'd have no clue it was a comic book movie cast. Which is a good sign. That's the best poster I feel like I've seen in years; impressive looking without being silly. Makes it seem like what it seems to be (a really quality piece of work, a good movie that happens to be based on a comic, instead of a 'comic movie').

    Too much poster hate methinks

    by Neosamurai85

    It's really more meh than crap. It's not earth shatteringly original, but at the same time it feels right for this film. The poster reads to me as saying Ironman is a summer blockbuster, which is what it is! As excited as I am about this film, I'm not really expecting to use the parts of my brain that I would for say... The Dark Knight. Maybe that's just because I'm not a huge Ironman fan like I am Batman, and thus don't understand it for the deep thinking man's comic that it is. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's mindless, nor am I meaning to talk smack about the Ironman. I'm just saying its more about blowing shit up. Blowing shit up with class and quality, but blowing stuff up nonetheless. So anyway, the fact that it doesn't have a poster as great as the "Why So Serious?" one for Dark Knight doesn't freak me out.

    by BenFerris

    Its not too flashy, its not too dark, its not centered on JUST Robert Downey Jr., and it feels like a poster that gives you a feel for the movie. Good symmetry too. Okay, but Gwyneth Paltrow looks a bit odd, but I'll let it pass.

    Meh to Photoshop montage...Struzan Art would have been cooler

    by KillaKane

    Not enough old skool poster art around today, nothing compares to the excitment and dynamism of a beautifully rendered poster illustration (Bysouth, Chantrell, Struzan, Peak, Casaro, Amsell and Kirby masters all). Photoshop compositing can be effective when applied artfully but most of the shite out there is sterile and dull.

Iron man is one of he most complex characters and comics out there, especially since Civil War. His comics are serious shit and batman's are high concept out there silly stuff.

  • March 7, 2008, 6:04 a.m. CST

    Whew

    by TCSailor

    As much as I love Orson Scott Card, I am so glad they went with the original concept of Iron Man with Stark just being a smart, conflicted and motivated motherfucker with a fat bankroll. I hated when he was made a mutant in the Ultimate comics. Thanks, John Favreau and crew!

    by cloudrider`

    But, like a couple of other posters have mentioned, that same collection of images would look a thousand times better if it had received the Drew Struzan treatment. Jesus, that guy paints some amazing posters, and the composition of this is so similar that you can't help wishing it was painted rather than photoshopped.<p>Also, I am running out of ways to express my excitement for this Iron Man superhero comic book film.

I wouldn't have given her an Oscar, but I've liked her a few films, especially Great Expectations, Sylvia, Mrs Parker (a favourite of mine), and The Royal Tenenbaums. Anyone would think she was Jessica Alba bad from all the flack she gets around here.

    HORRIBLE POSTER

    by BranMakMorn

    If you step back and look at the overall design, there's a HUGE ugly black space down the middle of this poster. Better idea would be to commission some Marvel artists to do several posters, even some old timers like Steranko. Mix them in with new guys like Adi Gadnov. It's a way to tie the source material to the film and perhaps draw some new customers to the comic medium.

    Okay, buddy, I like your optimism - only two months to go it is.<p>I was reading the big fat article on Iron Man in this month's Empire, and it just got me even more excited.

    Man everything about this movie

    by Series7

    Has been awesome. But this poster looks like some bad movie starring a rapper. They should have just stuck with the original poster. I now loathe when a movie I really want to see is getting closer to release. Because more and more crap gets made for it then is necessary. Call me a dick, but ever since Ledger passed away, there has been very little new Batman stuff, when it looked like they were going to start a new poster out every day. Which from a marketing stand point makes perfect sense. Too bad it takes the death of the star of the movie to get studios to shut up and stop jamming crap down our throats.

    Fair enough. I'm not a comic geek and mean no offense to Ironman fans, but regardless of what Ironman is like in the comics, this film has been packaged the way I've said. We've heard little to nothing about a complex villain. The the redemptive superhero arc is almost as basic as it gets. Nothing about this film's trailers has indicated to me that I should expect more than a great summer blockbuster, so if that's the case, than what's the deal with a poster that tells me its a big flashy blockbuster. If this film is more complex and being handled wrong, then why are so many Ironman fans drooling over the trailers? It seems to me that it is giving people what they want. I'm not saying the film is stupid. Understand that I watch maybe 6 films a year in the theater and this will be one of them. I really am looking forward to this. When I say it's a blow shit up blockbuster, I mean that in the best possible way. Most blockbuster action movies suck because they are bad movies, not because they are blockbusters. This looks like one that's doing it right.

    Looks like a classic poster from 90s. COOL!!!

    but there is a cool one in outnow.ch, this one here: http://tinyurl.com/yqeyve. the french one.

    Too floaty!!! MODOK has a BEER and CHEETS on its wife!

    by SpencerTrilby

    Kidding aside, I have nothing against floating heads. At least the domestic poster looks better than the international one : <p> http://tinyurl.com/2de2db <p> (BTW ludmir88, your link doesn't work.) <p> And I totally agree with Series7: they're really blowing their wad now that the release date approaches. The last trailer was nice (by far my favorite - the only one that truly pumped me up) but they screwed the pooch again with too many revelations and details about the plot. Spider-Man 3 all over again. <p> And as a life-long Shellhead reader I agree with ya too Neosamurai: the only shot that gave the movie a clever and "deep" look was in a teaser posted months ago (Downey sat down with his Power Glove, with his "intense" look on), the rest is clearly marketed as brainless fun. Even an old fan like me can admit it. The substance is here - no doubt about it - but somehow they chose to give it a manic, ADD spin that's not totally coherent with the way they sold us the movie since its inception. Strange.

    iron man will flop

    by joel007

    My mom knows who batman is. She's heard of spiderman. Superman... check. She has no clue who Iron Man is. This is Snakes on a Plane all over. The web gets jazzed because they're comic book fans and they then think that means 300 mill at the box office. NOt a chance. No way. And I really like the trailer and like Iron Man and hope this movie rocks. But it doesn't have a chance.

    Looks like a Star Wars Poster

    Well...it does.

    Many thanks ludmir

    by SpencerTrilby

    I had a glimpse of that one in another site, but none of that quality. Right click - save indeed! <p> The funny thing is that this is a French poster, and the poster isn't displayed in any major theater in Paris. What a weird way to promote a movie, especially in a country where Shellhead is an uknwown. <p> Since you've been a nice chap ludmir, I give you this: the teaser dubbed in French - strictly for the laughs (click on "haut debit" under Teaser 1 - Fran├žais): http://tinyurl.com/2cmzo9

    Still hate Iron Man from Civil War...

    by ComputerGuy68

    Civil War put me off comics and this film. Civil War should have never happened.

  • March 7, 2008, 3:37 p.m. CST

    Yeah, the chick pic is cool, unfortunately

    by SpencerTrilby

    according to Favreau that scene won't make it into the theatrical cut. Gotta wait the DVD. <p> I personally like the shot of Terrence Howard as Rhodey. Nice pic too.

    THATS WHY I HATE THE MPAA!!!

    THE ONE WITH THE WHOLE BUNCH (RDJ,JB,TH & GP)LOOKS GRATE TOO. and the trailer ... i prefer the english version instead.

    Re:THATS WHY I HATE THE MPAA!!!

    by SpencerTrilby

    you mean, about the chick pic? I see where you come from, but Favreau - in that case - said it was more a question of running time. He may be bullshitting us and trying to cover backward pedaling over the sex quotient, but I doubt it. I mean, who would make an Iron Man movie without chicks in bikini? <p> But yeah, MPAA blows. I mean, Indiana Jones and the vanishing Kalashnikovs?

    It looks so much like that poste. You guys need to do a side by side and show how this looks like that.

    It would be cool if...

    by alienindisguise

    Every comic based movie that comes out would do alternate posters featuring comic art instead of just photoshopped collages..those are way gay.

    ROCKETEER it is

    by thegreatwhatzit

    Similar poster design. And, remember, THE ROCKETEER tanked. Big time. Supposedly, creator/artist Dave Stevens bought a huge luxury home in L.A., thinking he'd profit from "inevitable" sequels and merchandising. Oops. The p.r. office has obviously declined to promote (supposedly) a cameo by beloved, iconic radio personality High Pitch Eric. Pity; could add millions to the tally, right?

    THAT'S A DECENT POSTER - INTENDED FOR THE MASS AUDIENCE

    by BringingSexyBack

    I'm sure there will be diff posters for the geek community. They can't sell Iron Man to Main St. Joneses, they have to sell the cast.

    Crappy poster--poorly done--movie looks great though

    by kevred

    Why is the dominant visual element a big blob of blackness inthe middle?<p>Why can't it seem to decide if it's a photo or painting?<p>Why, if this is an action movie, are all the images so stiff and still-looking--no movement at all?<p>I've seen tons of cooler-looking images of the suit--why use this mostly-shadowed one?<p>Thankfully, everything I've ssen of the film itself looks terrific. This poster just looks like they couldn't afford to do a proper one, which in turn makes the movie look cheaper than it is.
