Default Seen the Comicon Iron Man footage?

Shakey-cam, but awesome. Watch quick, before it gets pulled.

Holy crap - this actually looks good, but I am a fan of Robert Downey Jr (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is teh awesome) so that also helps.

Wow. Looks great. I was excited when I saw the first leaked photos of the armor. Now I'm completely sold.

Definitely good stuff. I was pretty much neutral on this film until I saw that footage. Now I can't wait for it.

I had zero interest in this film until I saw the trailer, and while I'm not yet sold, I am definitely intrigued. With this and The Dark Knight coming out next summer, it could be a great year for superhero movies.

I liked the choice of music. Obvious, but good none the less. Otherwise, it's a bit too early (and shaky) to say anything definitively, but it seemed pretty cool, I guess.

Yeah, I'm cautiously optimisitic. Basically, there's been no bad news as far as I can tell, Downey seems like perfect casting, and the few released photos (and now this footage) are lifted exactly from the comics, which is perfect as far as I'm concerned.

I don't know the first thing about the script though, or how Favreau is at directing a big budget comic movie, or things like that.

One problem does occur to me though: No way they stick with Sabbath's Iron Man for the actual movie. I'll bet that was just put together for this footage, because there's no way they'd pass up the opportunity to churn out a horrible cover with some top 40 band for the soundtrack. If it's Nickleback, I'll die a little more inside.

Sir Mix-a-Lot sampled Sabbath's Iron Man back in the day. I vote for that song.

It was kind of dark, but it looks so good.

There's a description of the footage floating around somewhere on aicn that will help clear up what's going on there. Let's see if I can dig it up...

Ah yes, it's buried in here.

I'll wait until I get home to watch it (at work, as usual), but keeping Sabbath for the film would definitely have me interested.

As it stands, I've never been a big fan of Iron Man.
