Iron Man Photos

Only 30 days and counting until the summer movie season kicks off with Iron Man on May 2nd! We've seen a lot of footage and a lot of trailers for Iron Man already, but I'm wondering how much more there is to it. And I say that because I think there is a LOT more that we don't even know about yet. We're going to be in for one hell of a treat come May. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, some new photos have popped up over at SuperHeroHype and they're pretty awesome. These should give you that last bit of energy you need to last 30 more days!

Just take a look at that last trailer. Besides a few scenes at the end of Iron Man fighting Iron Monger, there is the entire last half of the movie that we haven't seen a glimpse of. Or for that matter, we don't even know what happens. There is an odd explosion of blue light that shoots straight up into the sky - but where does that come from, what the heck is going on even? Once Iron Man gets established and starts kicking some ass, the sky's the limit from there!

A few enticing extras have also popped up on SHH and have been included below.

I'm wondering how much more you think there is. Given we are all more excited for Indiana Jones 4 or The Dark Knight over Iron Man (just go read everyone's thoughts here), it doesn't mean that I can sit back and think about how incredible Iron Man is going to be before we even get close to those other summer blockbusters. Unlike Transformers last summer, where we had seen most of the big action set pieces in trailers or footage by release, I think Iron Man and our friend Jon Favreau has a lot hidden up his sleeve that is waiting to be revealed.

Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau, of Zathura and Elf previously. The movie was written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Mark Fergus (Children of Men, First Snow), and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, First Snow). Iron Man hits theaters everywhere this summer on May 2nd - see you in theaters!!

This movie is going to rock the house!!! 🙂

I think the fact that we haven't seen a lot of the suit in action speaks very highly to what Stan Winston and his team created. Would The Predator been as cool if we saw all of what it could do up front? My expectations are sky-high at this point. I'm running a serious risk of being let down stupendously. But, at this point, the marketing of the film has been excellent and there hasn't been anything I've seen in the trailers or stills to give me pause. Did anyone read Robert Downey Jr.'s interview with Wizard this month? He was thanking us (the audience) for the opportunity to play Stark. "I'm going to earn it," he said. I LOVE reading stuff like that!

I'm beginning to think of this as the oft heard case of a good team coming in and re-interpreting a lesser known character, updating him to make him cooler than he ever was before. Think Animal Man, the Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing. I must admit- I was NEVER into Iron Man comics, the entirety of my collecting days- including now. Maybe b/c Bob Layton always drew Tony Stark to look like a bad combo of David Hasselhoff & Geraldo Rivera- w/ worse fashion sense! But this looks way cooler than any of that. Robert Downey has given more personality to Tony Stark, from what I've seen, than frankly- he's ever had. And Stans' the Man. Winston & Lee. I wonder what Lee's cameo's going to be in this one. Engenue at the Playboy mansion, perhaps? Let's just hope it makes enough to get some quality sequels (as they'll inevitably attempt to do). This is one of the most expensive Marvel movies to date- $180 million. Let's hope the fans deliver. Just keep playing that Sabbath Song, and they'll show up, for sure. Make mike Marv.

Wait- the writer's from Children of Men are in on this?? Shee-ooot. No wonder it's looking so good. That film (and book) are enough to single handedly renew one's faith in cinema & literature. High recommendations to any who haven't seen or read it. (not that the screenwriter's wrote the book- but they obviously know how to adapt quality material) I'd say that we've seen the main arc in the previews, but that it doesn't say much about how the scenes, battles, character development & supporting characters will really play out. It's honestly one of the best crafted previews I've seen in a LONG time. Leaves you wanting more, even if you've never heard of the guy. These pics look AWESOME, BTW!!! And yes- I want MORE!!!!

Djo on Apr 2, 2008


I'm on this like white on rice.

Rob on Apr 2, 2008


I was talking with the guy that posted those and he said 30 more on the way. And Alex the novel for the movie is really good.

Stephen on Apr 2, 2008


Too bad Alex cant read. Or he would gladly get the novel.

Heckle on Apr 2, 2008


I think it will be a fun film, worthy of the price of admission. I also think it will have a plot very close to that of Batman Begins.

Manfred Powell on Apr 2, 2008


jeff bridges is playin iron monger? and samuel l jackson as nick fury?? this movies going to destroy everything

harrison on Apr 2, 2008


Sleepers like this (hard to believe a big-budget IRON MAN is a sleeper though) can often seem more rewarding than hyped-up films like INDY or DARK KNIGHT. And I like the mystery around it- too many films reveal all with the trailers.

ghost of 82 on Apr 2, 2008


Barney has posted a tons more pics like these over at SHH! Alex.

Stephen on Apr 2, 2008


Anyone have a clue what the rating for this film might be? I'd love to take the kids...but...not if it's R, and I'd have to find out what kind of '13' it would be if it turns into PG-13. I saw the newer trailer I think during the Kids Choice Awards...and it looked amazing! I LOVE Robert Downey Jr. I'm *so* glad he is working on his sobriety and didn't end up dead somewhere like some other promising stars. Yay!

Movie Lover on Apr 2, 2008


Movie Lover - It's officially rated PG-13 (for some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence and brief suggestive content), that was announced last week. It's designed to be slightly family friendly, but it is still an action movie so there is violence, mild language, and so on at least.

Alex Billington on Apr 2, 2008


we knew it would be pg-13. most popular ones are except blade.

Drake on Apr 2, 2008


This is good, b/c as we all know 13 yr. old kids are Total Pimps these days. Therefore Downey as Tony Stark is the perfect role model for them all to identify with!

Aswipe' Melendez Johnsun on Apr 2, 2008


Thanks everyone! As long as there's nothing in there about 'brief nudity' or 'sexual content' I'm cool with taking the kids. GREAT!!!!!!!

Movie Lover on Apr 2, 2008


Updated with 5 more sets - these are getting better! Can't wait - looks so fickin' awesome!!

Alex Billington on Apr 2, 2008



Ryan on Apr 2, 2008


These are gonna disappear soon. Paramount is taking them down.

Stephen on Apr 2, 2008


First ones are the best. I just love those Gaddamn sinisterly-lit up EYES!

djoser on Apr 2, 2008


I hope Tony Stark gets really drunk and says some racially insensitive things.

DCompose on Apr 2, 2008


saw new tv spot with real quick fight scenes w/ iron monger, looking better and better

harrison on Apr 2, 2008


"I hope Tony Stark gets really drunk and says some racially insensitive things." LOL! That will come in the second movie... Favreau said he'll do a "Demon in the Bottle" movie soon enough.. But the first one has got to be kept "family friendly"...

Alex Billington on Apr 2, 2008


Er.. y do the pics. have a Paramount logo embedded in them? 😐 These r not even full reso pics. Juz thumbnail sized.. Sad..

Gdn | TD on Apr 3, 2008


i really really really hope this movie doesn't let me down? can i get a amen??

theTruth on Apr 4, 2008


i love it!..cant wait! and theTruth..one big AMEN!

ma_rissa on Apr 4, 2008


I'd never heard of Iron man except for the rock song... until I saw the first trailer. I'll go to the cinema for once and not just wait for the DVD for this one! And Robert Downey Jr is my new favourite actor, all categories. He seems to pop up everywhere. Just love him nowadays.

Johan J on Apr 25, 2008


How the hell can you make Iron Man even more cool? There's no way. He is awesome!

Chris Arndt on Apr 30, 2008


Chris Arndt: you didn't by chance grow up in Ridgewood, NJ, did you? That would be so weird if that's you. I'm Vinnie's little brother, Joey Fortunato. We used to try out guitars in Victor's music and you used to shred on those things. If not - disregard.

Djo. on Apr 30, 2008


Iron Man was practically flawless as a super hero flick; it drops pretty obvious hints that would indicate a sequel as well... i'm thinking the next one should be equally great
