I saw that 'teaser teaser' on Facebook this afternoon. Only interesting part, Pepper in a cage.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: NeoCortex42: TheManofPA: alienated: I was never a comic book nerd, but, the Iron man films have really make me like the character, and Robert Downey jr a lot.

That's how good RDJ is as an actor. Iron Man in the comics is about as likable as Mister Fantastic

/too be far, that is going to far as an insult
//why do people join the side opposing Cap when he's always right?

At least Iron Man can blame the alcohol. What's Mr. Fantastic's excuse?

You're too dumb to understand his awesomeness.

Yes that's his reasoning.

He's so awesome in fact that there is an entire super group made up of different universe's Richards. That's right in every single time line in every single universe there is a Reed Richards and every single one of them rocks.


And RDJ was the greatest casting in everyone of those universe as well. With Patrick as Professor X a distant second


S. L. Jackson would like a word, mother f#cker.

RDJ's only problem with his portrayal of Tony Stark is that he's about 20 years older than Stark should be.. but on the other hand, Tony in his 20's now is rather too young to have had a father who participated in WWII.

THIS. Iron man got two things perfectly right when it came to casting. And given that Jackson is who they modeled Nick Fury after in the Ultimate universe, it made perfect sense to have him play the movie version as well.

Six_By_Nine: Maybe it was. I thought a lot of things sucked in that movie, so you could be right about it being one of the best things in it.


You must be a blast at parties...

rocky_howard: Six_By_Nine: Speaking of, if there's one thing The Avengers was missing, was that very thing. I mean, it was missing a lot of things, but on the Iron Man front, that was the hallmark of the Tony/Pepper chemistry and it was sorely absent.

Did you even watch the movie?

The Tony/Pepper scene at the beginning is one of the best things of the movie.


Not just that: Gwyneth Paltrow continuing to look smoking hot as a strawberry blonde. WTF?!

rocky_howard: WhippingBoy: Fun Dumpster: Snapper Carr: Looks like they're (finally) going with The Mandarin and also it's going to incorporate the Extremis story arc which means it could potentially be good.

Mandarin, Extremis, and Iron Patriot. This is starting to look like too much shiat crammed into one movie.

I'm waiting for Demon in a Bottle...

They did that in Iron-Man 2 already.


Well, sorta kinda yeah.

Cap was wrong in A vs X, despite how Marvel is spinning it.

A little concerned about the lack of Favreau, but having seen Shane Black's last pairing with Downey, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, I'm optimistic!

That's because Robert Downey Jr is Tony Stark.

Iron Man will always be remembered for one of the most perfect casting choices in movie history.



THIS! Tony Stark is the 1990's Robert Downey Jr.

Erix: War


That's what I heard too. Makes sense - I imagine the government is giving their state-sponsored superhero a patriotic paint job after the events in Avengers.

It's funny how differently Marvel and DC approach the time passes problem. DC cosmically reboots everything a few times. Literally universe altering parallel dimensional warping stuff. That way they can try out new things (of course they rarely do) and it all sort of fits. Marvel doesn't do the reboot machine thing, at least not on a universe scale. When they need to shake things up, something changes, and somehow everyone conveniently forgets the past or doesn't care or "magic happens" to just the handful of characters involved in the current plot. Peter Parker needs to get divorced from Mary Jane? He'll completely and utterly break character and forget his morals so the Devil can reboot his microcosm life. Avengers and X-Men need to fight? Cyclops turns into Magneto and embraces the alien cosmic force which took the woman he loved most, and will probably kill all mutants along w/ everyone else on Earth. Steve Rogers is getting a little stale? Bring back Bucky Farking Barnes for crying out loud.

DC has a slavish Star Trek style approach to continuity, while Marvel is more from the Doctor Who school of retconning on the fly to serve the needs of the current story line.

That said, I do wonder what they are going to do when they get to the point where there are no survivors of the Holocaust still living. I'm guessing they'll just have to do something to reset Magnet's age magically, but it is going to soon become a bit of a stretch.

Have you heard of the Franklin Richards Godhood Theory? It says that from his conception, Franklin Richards has been controlling the Marvel Multiverse, taking what was originally supposed to be a real-time comic book cosmology (which was a selling point for Marvel back in the day) and turning it into the multifold, time-distorted, continuity-busting, death-undoing construct we know. A better mind than mine noticed that from the time Sue Storm-Richards got pregnant, time in the Marvel Universe lost sync with ours, getting progressively worse and defying comprehension by all, save perhaps Deadpool and (briefly) She-Hulk. Changes in continuity, updating histories to explain eternally-young characters, resurrections, improbable coincidences and consequences, all of these are not writing or editorial gaffes, they're evidence of Franklin Richards' control over everything. If you look up "Franklin Richards Controls The Marvel Universe" you'll see what I mean.
