Iron Man was really awesome. I think they absolutely nailed the casting of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.


I thought him building the suit was kind of interesting, but I was pretty bored outside of that. The end fight is probably the worst ever. It was so...anti-climatic.

I have a question.

If captain america was created during ww2, how come in the comics (that I don't reaad, so this is an assumption) he doesn't age? Or do the comics take place in the 40s?


Cryogenic stasis of some form or another. Typically, Captain America gets frozen in an iceberg and lost to America until he is found again, probably by SHIELD in modern times. The story might have subtle or overt variations, but this is the most generic one often presented as to how/why Cap is a modern superhero still in his prime from WW2.

Yeah, basically he was killed off in the 40s but, from what I understand, Stan Lee wanted him brought back so they did the whole he was frozen in ice after the war and found later thing.

Ont thing I was hoping they'd do in the film is show his original shield design, the one that was shaped more like a police badge.

Good to hear, I loved Iron Man. Can't wait to see this cast come back in the Avengers.

If the screen play sucks, I just pray the story is spectacular. I've been wanting to watch more films with substance. The mentioning of Stark in the trailer is interesting to see what CAP and STARK did together. (besides the suit I guess)

Can't wait to see it all tie-in together.

Iron Man 1 had a great origin story almost as good as Batman Begins. I am glad to hear that CA is getting better reviews than Thor. I am still curious about the post credit scene...will Marvel be cheap and recycle the unused footage from TIH where Banner tries to kill himself, only to unleash the hulk instead and the hulk cracks the ice which frees Captain America? or will they redo that same scene with the new guy playing Banner?

Honestly I think that would be the best route for the final tease for the Avengers...have Hulk free CA by accident.

Which was ironic, as both Downey and Stark are usually known for being hammered.

Either way, I'm a DCU guy all the way, but this movie looks pretty awesome; better than Green Lantern for sure. Will definitely see this one.

When Thor first came out people flipped out because it was decent and started saying knee jerk reaction sort of stuff like " Its better than the Dark Knight!" which was retracted.... No way this goes above 68%.

Everyone was saying how Thor was as good or better than Iron Man too. I'm gonna just wait for the reviews, then gauge whether or not I watch it the first night or a few days later when the local cinema does $6 Tuesdays with soda and popcorn, but it'll mostly be for the soda and popcorn.:D

who said Thor was better than DK? Must have been either drunk/high or just another Marvel fanboy.

Imho

Dark Knight
Batman Begins
Iron Man 1
TIH
Iron Man 2
Thor

I will wait to decide where to put CA when it comes out..but if it's *that good* I might put it between DK and BB.

I am really pumped for Captain America. I think it looks great, but I don't know if it will top Thor for me. I expected Thor to be complete shit but I ended up loving it when going in with super low expectations.

Having Cap be a period piece is brilliant. If FF had been a period piece it could have been a great series as well. The reason Donner's first Superman worked (and holds up so well) is in part because it started out feeling really old school and idealistic. Cap and Supes REALLY need that American as apple pie theme and imagery. Also once he's unthawed in the Avengers they should milk the man out of time tropes for the full effect. Imagine Tony Stark questioning Cap's blind 40s heroism. Makes for good conflict. Hulk the brute, Tony the a-hole, Thor the Shakespearean looney, Black Widow the eyecandy, and Hawkeye the covert agent. Something for everyone..

That seems to be the way they're portrayed, especially Cap and Stark. Because really, in a hand to hand fight without his armor, Stark would get his ass kicked. And to the point that Cap is a symbol of the past and Stark spends his time thinking of the future.

I agree, Stark in IM1 and IM2 is nothing without his armor. Bruce Wayne could kick his ass in a second :D

Iron Man was a great character driven movie with a great lead and really likable supporting characters. That's really what every comic book movie should aspire to be. Since all the comic book nerds already know what's going to happen anyway, there's no point in slavishly trying to please them. It seemed like Green Lantern's screenplay tried to do that and well... you get Ryan Reynolds fighting a giant yellow blob made of fear.

I just hope for this one they put story first and take whatever liberties they need to make sure it is decent.

I hope this is a good movie. Thor was a little undercooked but I heard there will be a Thor 2 in the future. There is soo much more they can do with that franchise.

You must be talking about Iron Man 2, right? The boss fight in the first Iron Man was so much better, though still nothing special. But Iron Man 2's boss fight lasted seconds and was a complete downer.

As for this movie, I'm looking forward to it more than any other film this year. Love me some Cap.
