As some of you may know tomorrow is the opening of Iron Man, the latest of Marvels comic to screen adaptations directed by Jon Favreau of “swingers” fame and penned by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, Staring Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, and Gwyneth Paltrow
For those of you who are new to Iron Man but are pumped about the movie, here is what you need to know…

Iron Man was created by writer-editor Stan Lee, writer Larry Lieber, and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Tales of Suspense #39 (March 1963).

Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark, after being gravely injured and forced to build a devastating weapon, instead created a suit of power armor to save his life and help protect the world as Iron Man. He is a wealthy industrialist and genius inventor whose suit of armor is laden with technological devices that enable him to fight crime.

Familiar enough right? Hope I didn’t ruin too much of the movie for ya but lets be honest, I didn’t divulge more than the last 3 trailers and 10 Tv spots.

So there you have it. I am going to see Iron Man tomorrow night with the wife, so you can expect a full review on Monday, or Friday night if I am feeling extra geeky and ambitious.

In the meantime you should check out the official Iron Man Website and stock up on all the free computer swag, as well as watch some of the extras.

  1. 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
