    Default Iron Man Movie

    Here's some footage from Comic-Con where they introduce the movie.

    Introducing Iron Man

    True fans of the comic should like this movie.

    You know I was kind of wondering how much fuel he can stash in his armor to power the jet boots.

    Nah, the armor will bear an Energy Star label.

    Not too impressed by the trailor, Transformers will be VERY hard to beat, imo.

    Not too big a fan of RD jr. too, but I will see it for old times sake.

    wow this trailer is getting me psyched for the movie. I really like the fact that they are going back and doing a modern origin with the old school armor. The silver armor kicks ass with the Black Sabbath in the background.

    I also think Downey Jr is the perfect big name star for the movie. I hear Tom Cruise wanted this part and he would have been all wrong. Downey with his less than zero past and substance abuse has the perfect image for Tony Stark. Can't wait for this series to be another in the line of super succesful Marvel titles.

    I'm betting that we also saw a quick peek of the bad guy for the show, the crimson dynamo.

    Not a fan of Tom Cruise. Glad they turned him down.

    A lot of people have doubts about Robert Downey, Jr, but I think he can pull off the corporate Tony Stark role.

    Oh, and he's not the only big-name star attached to the film.

    repulsors do not use fuel, they are some kind of magnetic force beams.

    Maybe he has a high-tech solar cell.

    If you have the HD-DVD version of Transformers. You can watch "The Iron Man" trailer after the ending of the ending credits.

    The repulsors generate magnetic force beams (apparently he also has repulsors on the bottom of his boots that give him flight). But what powers the repulsor device(s)?

    The intro to the comic version back in the late 1970's said the armor was solar powered but unlike the Hanna-Babara Birdman who was also solar power powered, Iron Man never complained about being powerless when out of the sun.

    I suspect the armor has really good internal batteries that can deliver some good wattage and be recharged by various sources like 110 volt A/C line, tap into a 12 volt car battery or be recharged by the sun.

    Solar power was the rage at the time when we suffered gas shortage back in the Carter era.

    Nah, I think the suit will utilize hydrogen fuel cells with Faraday technology. In order for him to operate his repulsors he has to shake his leg to charge up the batteries on the armor's hip joints.

    His armor is powered by the two batteries on his hips.

    I recall him recharging them by hooking himself up to some large generator device but also recharging in the middle of a battle via solar or something that absorbed power.

    Shell head was always one of my favorite heros and am totally psyched about this movie. I can't imagine who the villian will be. If not Crimson Dynamo, maybe a bunch of small time baddies from AIM or maybe Hydra?

    I'd suspect a high tech storyline would work better.

    That's why he has to shake/pump his legs via Faraday tech.

    I hope he doesn't have the power input port on his codpiece (front or back). That would be awkward.

    Obadiah Stone will be the villain. A former mentor of Tony Stark, now a rival who wears the Iron Monger suit. Director Favreau hinted that Mandarin will be more of a presence (perhaps supporting Stone behind the shadow or have Stark on surveillance) in this film, which could set up for the sequel.

    I hope so. Our current solar power technology is still lacking.

    Ward Theater was showing the Iron Man trailer before the Cloverfield movie.

    I grew up with the Iron Man cartoon, one of my favorites, even had an Iron Man doll circa late 1970's I remember ordering out of a catalog that was called I think "Heroe's World". To a kid that was the greatest catalog I still have ever seen. As for the movie, it looks very tacky and silly, but I'm going to go see it anyways!

    I'm also happy for Robert Downey, Jr., fantastic actor who first paid his dues to get the big Hollywood roles, then had some substance abuse problems and had to start from the bottom again and now he seems to be back in the game of being a leading man in films. I hope this continues to work out for him.

    What looks tacky and silly in the yet-to-be-seen movie?

    Or is Iron Man not the kind of comic-book franchise that can be adapted to live-action?

    I wonder if the comment he made in the recent trailer was a tongue-in-cheek joke about the actor's real-life history.

    I was joking, but the Iron Man live action character looks like the robot from Lost in Space bred with Robocop or something. Not that I could have designed or done it any better, but for whatever reason the cartoon version looked better.

    I never liked the cartoon or comic book version of the Incredible Hulk, but the series with Bill Bixby was one of my favorites.

    Then again I didnt think X Men could be done live action and they made 3 movies and millions of dollars and I enjoyed them all. I will go see Iron Man for sure.

    Which version? The one in the 70's? Or the more recent direct-2-dvd film from Marvel?

    Maybe they did copied the cartoon version costume in reality for test shooting, but found it to look weird. NOT everything on paper is going to look good in the real world.

    When I was a kid I used to watch Fantastic Four, Sub Mariner and Iron Man cartoons, they seemed to be all packaged together on the same show. This was late 1970's, but the cartoons were probably 10 years old at the time.

    I must be thinking of an earlier version, where they were snippets along with Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk, and Captain America.

    FWIW, at least we'll see the first original Iron Man (Mark I?) armor, before he decided to use the red-and-gold paints.

    I'm pretty sure this is the version I watched as a kid:
