September 19, 2007: Iron Man Trailer

Looks like I spoke too soon. The Iron Man trailer is online.

I've always been a big fan of genius superheroes -- Reed Richards, Tony Stark, Bruce Wayne -- because they'd inject a science fiction flavor into the "tights and capes" sundae. Similarly, I've often been disappointed in the movie adaptations of these heroes, as the studios don't want a big brain crowding the screen with techno-babble in the middle of their flashy fight scene.

Of course, Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau, who is better known for talking pictures than "action'ers." And I have a good feeling about Robert Downey Jr. as the playboy industrialist.

Plus, the trailer's scenes of the suit flying are really, really cool.
