After watching it on widescreen yesterday IRONMAN became my personal best superhero flick by far and casting Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man was the perfect choice. Probably my next best will be Guillermo del Toro’s HELLBOY and the last Christopher Nolan’s BATMAN (Begins) caper. I prefer darker undertone which X-MEN (for me) failed to achieve. Other film such as Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic Four and Superman lacks intensity. I would love to see a WOLVERINE movie in 3D because Hugh Jackman is too lanky and good-looking as Logan and only CG will be able to do justice. Media hype can lead to box office triumph just like the mega success of TRANSFORMERS and SPIDERMAN. Few supes film are coming out in the next months but quite frankly these films would have not been visually entertaining if not for ILM and the rest of CG firm/people in Hollywoodland.

    Spot On ! good story arc, good casting, good directing, and RBJr !even Obadiah Stone was perfect !and the clincher, Samuel Jackson, as Nick Fury, complete with blackpatch, recruiting Tony Starks !

  2. It’s going to be trilogy if I’m not mistaken part III will be The Avengers. I would love to see The Rock as S.H.I.E.L.D.s Nick Fury though the Jack Kirby/Stan Lee character was originally caucasian but in the Ultimate Marvel Universe Series he became African-American and the character was tailored-fit for Samuel L. Jackson.
