Iron Man trailer!!! This one looks terrific, fellas!
Posted by JPX
From iwatchstuff, Jon Favreau screened a trailer for Iron Man at ComicCon this last weekend, providing a peek at the first real footage of the film. Luckily, as seen above, the power of shoddy bootlegging has brought the clip to those of us who refuse to kowtow to convention exclusivity.
The early parts of the trailer, though fairly entertaining, made me worry that there will be too much exposition and patriotism, but the later parts had me forgiving all of that once the giant iron suit started shooting giant fireballs, particularly at the end when we get to the switch from dingy iron suit to classic red & gold. Not since Short Circuit 2 has a change in metallic luster had me so excited.
Thanks for the tip, MajorKnuckles, and thank your troops as well.
