The first trailer for "Iron Man" is out.

This is the movie with Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man. PERFECT fucking casting.

And this preview...ho ho ho, my God! You have got to check this out.

Iron Man KICKS ASS!!!

janet - sweet indeed! I love the last part of the clip with the Mach 1 mist-disk. AWESOME!!!

crse - I thought about you today when I read the following exchange on "Crime Scene KC" blog.

"As far as the area already being searched, have you ever lost your car keys, looked all over the house and finally find out you just overlooked them under a glove or news paper in an area you had already looked? Everything doesn't jump out at you when you get close to it.

I want to believe.

Studios putting out viral clips like this so early are more often than not just testing the blog waters for a film they know is going to suck ass.

Watch your logs - you're going to see weird hits from places you've never seen before as the media house monkeys scan your blog for anything they can sell back to the studio.

I love this business!

stink - I know. Even as I was writing the post and pasting the links I thought "JAYsus! This is starting to make me look like some sort of paid shill."

But I was honestly and truly impressed with what I saw.

As soon as they announced the casting of Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark, I was hooked. In the "Marvel Universe", Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man), is an alcoholic. Hello? Not exactly an artistic reach for Downey. He should be able to phone this one in.

Not worried about Iron Man. Much like Spiderman, the costume IS the character and CGI has advanced to the point of rendering anything else irrelevant. I seriously doubt that it was really Robert Downey (or even his stunt double) outracing those F-22 Raptors at Mach 1.

If I start seeing indications that the final product will suck ass, I won't hesitate to say so.

But this very first Iron Man trailer is already better than both Fantastic Four movies.

Hubby & I are willing to go with you to see it. Maybe get a group together?

Me: How does he fly?
Hubby: Babe, it's a comic!
Me: Oh ya, I forgot.

Thanks for that, I think I just wet myself!

awww! thats awesome! Spider Monkeys may not have many skills but we are quite adept at the jump and startle!

It looks great. I don't remember Tony Stark being that much of a smart-ass in the comic strip, but I do loves me some Robert Downey Jr., so I'm totally there.
