Iron Man - Possible Spoilers
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:31:20 AM »
Saw it yesterday.

It rocks so much :)

Downey Jr pulls off the hero role quiet well, almost seemingly adlibing his entire part :D

going to see it tomorrow

at first i was sceptical of the choice of Downey Jr in the lead, until i saw early stills and thought yup thats Tony Stark

as Ironman is my No1 Marvel hero i have high expectations and its does look as though im not going to be disappointed

Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)

Best "origins" movie so far id say, good level of action and a few giggles.

Love it when he says in the final shot of the movie itself "I am Ironman". And the media goes wild. Just awesome the way he seems to buck the superhero/alterego trend.

Thats because Ironman is "known" in the marvel universe he doesnt hide behind any alter ego and works for the government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. under the command of NIck Fury, and also as part of the Avengers with the likes of Captain America, Spider Woman, Thor etc
