A preview that is supposedly going to be aired (in the US) during Battlestar Galactica.

*** Edit - Another TV spot, titled "Run Before You Can Walk", can be viewed via Apple's Iron Man site.

Saw a lonnnnnggggg tv ad for it last night. If you haven't seen the ad yet, change channels when it comes on. There's a lot of the film showcased in the ad...a lot. Whoever dreamt up the trailer deserves Nutpunch

Spoiler:
I was just furious watching the subpar garbage, so I'm fairly sure I missed nothing. Barely a step above Ghost Rider and Fantastic Four. If you've never seen a movie before in your life, or you are an imbecile, you're going to love this half-assed attempt at making a "serious" comic book movie. Honestly, the only way you wont guess every plot twist two weeks before it happens is if you have never ever ever seen a film before - it's all by-the-numbers nonsense. Ooo, can you guess who the big villain is going to be? Can you guess which woman is going to be put in danger by the villain? The way women are treated in the film is pathetic, by the way, but that's by-the-by - apparently the screenwriters and filmmakers skipped over the part where Stark is supposed to be UNLIKEABLE in his alcoholism and womanising, rather than a jovial likeable playboy throughout. Either way, the characters are wafer thin and the only one who has any pathos dies early on in the piece (something else truly predictable), the action is somewhere between Transformers' epileptic shitfury and general incoherence, and the thing is crazy with general nonsensical bullshit. The terrorists who capture Stark and happily allow him to build his suit must be the stupidest fuckers EVER, then a hilarious later moment in which the cartoonesque destruction of a Middle Eastern village suddenly makes top news, with reporters watching the families fleeing and making ridiculous hyperbole about "children crying for their parents" when in reality, no news network would bother airing such a thing and no audience would give a crap. The film delights in being as safe and family-friendly as possible while watching said drunken nutjob go on a rampage against a series of terrorist stereotypes without any glimmer of blood (see Rambo for a balls-out version of this scenario) while never for one moment making us thing any of the characters we're rooting for are in any real danger. Why bother? The film generally makes no sense: witness the scene in which our final villain is defeated by a flaw in the earlier version of his suit, only to reappear fine shortly after. Consider the momentously retarded sequence in which Penny Pots removes the power source that's keeping Stark alive, then accidentally remove the electromagnet that's keeping Stark alive, then only have the power source reinserted into him, to power, what, nothing? Ahh, good, logic! I hate this film and I hate anyone who liked it and I hate you all in general.

Mod Edit- this forum has spoiler tags. I'm not going to bother going through and picking out the individual spoilers from this post. Just use the tags in the future.

this is what you guys missed,

Spoiler:
You missed Stark arriving home after the press conference.
and someone was there waiting for him.

-Stark: Jarvis?

-Jarvis: Welcome home, sir

Stark notices someone a sihouette in front of his window. (he was looking at the figure's back, the figure was looking out the window)

-Figure (without turning): "I am Iron Man" (refering to Stark's coming out), "You think you are the only superhero in the world? Mr Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet"

-Stark: Who the hell are you?

-Figure as he steps out of the shadows: Nick Fury, Director of SHIELD. I'm here to talk to you about the Avenger initiative

you get the idea. needless to say i was a happy little camper
