I went to go see Cloverfiled last night and I saw this trailer and I am hooked.
You have me at “Iron Man” Mr. Favreau — I loved the tings you’ve graced so far — “Swingers
and “Elf” (GENIUS!).

Now onto Iron Man — he’s like Batman, but far cooler, metal-ier, and he can fly . . . Ok, actually, Batman is sort of lame next to Iron Man. (But I still love you Batman, don’t cry.)

Look, they’re both billionaires both have cool gadgets, but Iron Man is more flawed. He’s actually a dying man in a suit. He’s weak, he’s an alcoholic, he’s a little bit more of assh*le — he’s more real,
but then he’s not.

There is a better human element, with more flaws to him.

Bruce Wayne has a trouble psyche due to his shattered past. Tony Stark (catch the “iron”y in the last name) has just so much more against him– but here he is, frail but powerful.

He’s more than a modern Achilles, his weakness is his own health (at least in the comic). I hope they bring this to the movie and I feel that they will, it makes for a much better screen play.

Ok, this is just speculation, but in the battle of Batman vs. Iron Man this summer, Iron Man will trump the “Caped Crusader” with a far a more developed character, better story line, and bada** gizmos galore. 

This is also one reason Marvel Comic has seen such incredible growth in the past decade. Stan Lee has really done an incredible job at making heroes that are more believable and they are all flawed with human error.

Superman sucks, he’s cool because he’s unstoppable, but then Kryptonite? What they hell is that. I’ve never fallen to that who has? But Marvel characters have pain, deep pain, loss, addictions, and they have a dark side that they battle with in — this is human.

Anyhow, that aside Iron Man must be seen . . . Oh,and the video game looks epic.
