I Am…Iron Man!

Iron Man

The new Iron Man teaser went up last night — I have to say that despite the goatee on Robert Downey, Jr.’s mug I’m cautiously excited for this one. Perhaps it’s the fact that the Favs is directing. Or maybe blind hope that the string of lackluster comic-book movies (X-Men 3, Spidey 3) can be balanced by this one. As for the trailer, the first bit plays a lot like the recent ‘Lord of War’, with the amoral arms dealer spouting over-the-top paeans to firepower. The stuff that comes afterwards looks very cool, though. I wonder if they can get Ghostface on the soundtrack.
