This is even more exciting than health-care reform.

Clearly we need to send IronMan to do the whipping in the house.

Is anyone in Hollywood capable of writing an original screenplay or must it be a comic book first?

more exciting than health care reform? Please.

I don't know, I think I might be a bit more excited by the new TRON, though I had to watch both trailers sans audio.

tlibert, movies have adapted stories from other media since cinema was invented. And Iron Man is awesome. That is all.

I dont know about this sequel, almost all sequels suck compared to the original (ex. Dark Knight) and this one looks as if it will also, though I absolutely love that Black Sabbath song, and havent heard it lately. To the magical world of iTunes I go now!!

I've never seen such an implausible chain of contingencies, or the Senate looking so stupid. But enough about healthcare reform: I'm looking forward to enjoying Iron Man 2.

Wow that was good.

Ha! LOL It says something about where I live (Boulder) that I thought this was going to be about a triathlon.

Goodness. Nice to see Sam Rockwell. and AC/DC throughout? fun. (interesting factoid: Angus Young records all those wack solos sitting down)

While I'm looking forward to Iron Man 2, the new trailer for Tron Legacy is crazy-awesome. Add that to Hot Tub Time Machine, and it's looking like an awesome year for films, especially if you like comic book movies or are a nostalgia geek.

Sam Rockwell was great in Moon. A must see, if you haven't seen it.

Skeptical. The best part of the first one was the development of the suit and watching the nerdy dude engineer his way out of a hard problem. This one looks to be all action and, consequently, fairly yawn-worthy.

I find these comic-based flics enlightening about the probable future of war and domestic policiing (some sci-fi does this well too).

Robotics and body-enhancement, baby! Its the next internet boom biz.

The major problem with these movies is that they give the game away to the world about what DoD and your local cops have in store for conventional armies, terrorism and civil unrest.

I'll wait for Netflics till the fall of the year.

bdballard, that's Black Sabbath bro!

was that Gary Shandling as a Senator? An Al Franken reference?

SO true. I'm glad to see you've finally gotten your priorities straight.

Also, vagueofgodalming wins at comments.

I'm really not sure I'm comfortable with the new villain of Corporate America Man being so hideously caricatured as Hispanic. The scary gold-toothed man from the south will be defeated by sexy white people and our superior manufacturing - plus one black dude to show we're not racist.

Thanks for that, Marvel. Just what we needed in these trying times.
