Was going to post this in the Comics to Movies thread, but I figured news this great needed its own. I know, I know…it was announced a while ago, but I hadn’t seen or heard anything official about it. So here it is :-).
I thought it was interesting that Jon Favreau is doing this movie. I’m a big Favreau fan; hope he does well with it.[/quote]
Me, too. I think he’s one of the most underrated actors of the last decade. Glad he’s finally getting his “A” list shot. Of course, having already played a character in a Marvel movie, wouldn’t that… Nah, fuck it.
…And I wrote in the comics to movies thread on 07/11 (regarding DtotheG’s suggestion of “Iron Man” by Black Sabbath be used in the movie soundtrack):
[i]That would be bad-ass if it was saved for just the right moment. Say, for instance, he got his ass handed to him in round 1 with the Mandarin, he goes back to Stark International, supes up the armor over a period of weeks, and steps out of some dry-ice smoke filled chamber with the newer, more kick ass duds on to go make lo mein out of said villain.
And they should keep it the un-fooled-around-with original version, not a shitty remake by Evanescence or some other “feel my tortured soul cry out” band.
Of course, now that I think about it, you could probably only use the guitar solo, seeing as how the lyrics are about Iron Man slaughtering people; not a really good soundtrack for a hero.[/i]
Yeah, I called it. And yes, I want a cookie.
