Video: “Iron Man 2″ trailer

Looks spectacularly good, although so did the first one and that wasn’t incentive enough to get me to see it. (You know why.) If anything, this makes me more inclined to see “Avatar”: If the F/X there are “groundbreaking” compared to the mind-boggling F/X of flicks like this, even a three-hour sermon on eco-consciousness might be bearable.

Third year in a row, by the way, that an “Iron Man” trailer has appeared on Hot Air. What can I say? If the formula works, stick with it. Just ask Robert Downey Jr.

By the way, Marvel killed off Capt. America. They discovered the fans did not like it and have been trying to correct it ever since.

As part of the aftermath of Marvel Comics’ company crossover “Civil War”, Steve Rogers was killed in Captain America vol. 5, #25 (March 2007). Series writer Ed Brubaker remarked, “What I found is that all the really hard-core left-wing fans want Cap to be standing out on and giving speeches on the street corner against the George W. Bush administration, and all the really right-wing fans all want him to be over in the streets of Baghdad, punching out Saddam Hussein”.

Captain America has been brought back from the dead in the mini series currently running titled Captain America:Reborn.

When DC or Marvel “kills” off a character, they usually don’t stay dead for long. DC “killed” off Bruce Wayne and they are going to bring him back next year.

I feel compelled to ask: have you kept up with DC Comics as well in the past few years? Because if you know where to look, they’re not far behind in how they’ve been dealing with their superhero output. There was a Superman story a few months ago called “New Krypton” that had anti-war themes brewed up by one Greg Rucka. Of course, that’s not the only problem they have – there’s misogyny, multi-culti pandering and “death/villification worship” running rampant under the editorship of Dan DiDio, yet seems to me that nobody even cares to take notice of that.

This has been going on since Dick Sprang stopped drawing Batman circa 1960. When Time-Warner goes under I hope some nonpolitical geek buys Superman-DC National Comics ™ and revives the medium that “relevancy” killed.

“captain america” and “thor” in 2011

“avengers” in 2012 (iron man/hulk/black widow/thor/nick fury/war machine/hawkeye)

“avengers” might be too busy. that’s a lot of characters. admittedly most of the character backgrounds will already be established..and rumored to be mostly the same actors.

am I right in guessing Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow? if not, they sure missed an opportunity.

Hawkeye…hmmmm…I’m stumped on how they will play him. on a page=cool. on screen…ehhh.

and if they put David Hasslehoff as nick fury, a casting agent will have to die to balance the cosmic scales. seriously.

Just had to post something on this thread.
