    Looks like Fantastic Four all over again. Where do you see a difference?

    1. FF was cast entirely with bad actors, IM is cast with good actors.  2. FF’s special effects were embarrasing.  IM’s look kick-ass.  3. The basic premise of FF is unavoidably goofy.  Mr Fantastic?  Literally no way to make him cool.  Guy in an amazing, high-tech suit of kick-ass superhero armor?  Awesome.

    I gotta tell ya, until last night, I suspected Iron Man would not be my cup of tea.  It felt very FF to me too… but last night’s trailer was AWESOME.  It gave me a better understanding of what it’s about, showed some really cool scenes and is making me love the Downey’s cavalier, whimsical Stark (I don’t know if this gels with the comics, but I like it).

    Overall, it might be a little too tongue-in-cheek for me, but I’m liking what I see a whole lot more than when I saw FF trailers.  I have renewed faith!

    I’ve been in love with this since day one.  I think this is likely to be one of the best comic adaptations we’ve ever seen.  I don’t see how you could compare any version of Iron Man that we’ve seen thus far to FF.  I can tell you that this film will succeed in every aspect where FF failed — primarily character development, humanizing the hero, effects and overall direction and tone.  I’m sticking my neck out for Favreau on this one.  I got my boy’s back.  I think he has the chops.

    Plenty of bad movies have good actors, Fox had a phenomenal script for Fantastic Four by Michael France that made Mr. F great. And I think you’re batshit crazy if you think the SPFX in Iron Man look good from the trailers we’ve seen. He looks and moves like a clone from the Star Wars movies, and doesn’t have anywhere near enough weight. Tone looks and sounds the exact same as FF’s to me, and I really don’t know how you can assume there will be character development.

    Just came by to shit on your dreams before I got to work. Carry on.

    Every good scriptwriter makes sure a character’s dialogue is distinct and easily identifiable as their own.  Hugh, whoever is writing your dialogue is a great scriptwriter.
