    I saw the trailer awhile back it looked pretty action packed. I have high hopes for this film because I believe The Avengers set standard for all of the Marvel films that follow after it. Not sure if it will surpass Man of Steel though.

    Man of Steel looks like shiz anyways.
    Im just fine with the story being used to tell more about Stark.

    Focusing on Tony Stark was half the problem I had with Iron Man 2, they might as well called that one "Tony Stark:The Movie"

    Well Iron Man is Tony Stark so I don't really see the issue.

    Someone said they were thinking about doing the extremis storyline which could work well- I only saw the "motion comic" version (primarily as I never really read comics) but I really enjoyed it.

    Ooh- full video up on youtube.

    They are focusing on the wrong Stark

    In all seriousness, I haven't watched the first 2 Iron Man films, are they any good?

    How exactly can Man of Steel look like "shiz" when all there's been to look at is a teaser trailer?

    I liked the trailer, though the tone seemed pretty Stark.

    Superman is a gold mine for writers. He is a hero with every power. Great. But thats where writers freeze up. Theres too much he can do. Hes too good of a hero. His stories are always boring because hes just that. Too powerful. And when he is "weak"...
    Hes weak to a fopping crystal. I dont see this being interesting. Going back to his roots again, rewriting his past.

    BUT. You are correct. There is a glimmer of hope. Its directed by Christopher Nolan who I feel obligated to give a nod to, and watch what he produces.

    It's only being produced by Nolan. Zack Synder is the director. (300, Watchmen, etc.)

    Tony Stark=boring arse shit
    Iron man=shit gettin blown up, fun times on screen

    Iron Man 2 just focused too much on the personal stuff and lacked anything interesting for the Iron Man side of things

    Well if I wanted to see shit blowing up I'd go see Red Dawn. Well I just did but it wasn't good.

    I mean they made an interesting character with some great effects and action. It's what differentiates top tier superhero movies like Iron Man and Batman from the subpar ones like... Green Lantern. Or Fantastic Four.

    I never said having Iron Man on the screen all the time, just that Iron Man 2 could have been a lot better if it was balanced better between the 2 characters. While Stark can be interesting, he wasn't that interesting enough of a character to pan a whole film

    He kinda was.

    Plus there was plenty of Iron Man asskicking, although admittedly I liked the first one better than the second.

    I thought Iron Man 2 was bad because it was so over the top. Basically Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr didn't try because they were planing on riding the success of the first film.

    I wasn't exactly a fan of Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard in the second film either. I would argue Iron Man 2 is the worst of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies aside from Captain America.

    That actually really bothered me while I was watching the film. It was like the white elephant in the room and he felt out of place. Thankfully, The Avengers didn't suffer the same fate with Edward Norton being replaced by Mark Ruffalo.
