Iron Man

Today Iron Man is coming out. The movie looks good and the pics I have seen look impressive, let’s just hope it doesn’t forget about the storyline when it has such great special fx.

If you don’t know what Iron Man is about, here’s a quick summary, real quick:

Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, who I might add- was born on Long Island. Tony is smart, super rich and has a huge business empire. His parents are dead (Marvel, like Disney, has lots of orphan characters). Tony gets hurt during a super experimental experiment and has the Iron Man suit made up after he gets hurt. His new suit gives him super human strength and superhero capabilities.

The Iron Man suit looks awesome btw.

Don’t forget we have the Iron Man comics at the library which would be cool to read before you catch the movie (or after).

    Iron Man was practically flawless as a super hero flick; it drops pretty obvious hints that would indicate a sequel as well… i’m thinking the next one should be equally great

    They are making a sequel. I am interested in the comics though, to compare to the original. I seem to like superhero movies more than the comics, because the comics all become the same to me after a while. I always regard the original over the movie, of course, but just am unable to do so with this genre.

    The movies take a lot of liberties when they make a movie out of a graphic novel. And tend to take elements from a lot of different issues in the series. X-MEN is a prime example of that.

    The only movie I can think of that stayed faithful to the graphic novel was 300. I know there are some movies that people don’t realize were graphic novels like The Road to Perdition, A History of Violence, From Hell and Ghost World. But those are all dramas compared to the action superhero flicks.

    Reading one or two of the vital issues in the comic series for a given film will only serve to give a better background of the characters that might only get a once over in the film. 🙂
