I've created this thread in readiness for Johnny but while we're waiting for it to come out, here's something to amuse you.

played the demo.
it gave me a clues to about in the film.

I had this fear that they're were going to mess up the echo voice.
but they nailed it.

and looks like Jarvis is well...
nevermind... I'll shut up.

I'm actually considering going on release day.
I NEVER go to the movies on release day

As Stark?

Yeah, I had my doubts at the start, My pick was Oded Fehr tbh but I think Johnny and I decided if Downey could 'rock' the goatee.

The Stark 'tache alone, it's difficult for any man to don and not look alittle silly.

yeah i believe he's pulling it off.

after the movie it will probably one of those things where he sets the benchmark and its hard to give anyone else a fair shake.

like Nicholson - joker.

they even imported his joker into the books for a while.

I think Ledger is going to do a good joker, enough to nudge Nicholson off his perch somewhat.

OHHH...and did you know there was a Underworld: Raise of the lycans....or something or rather in the works?

That chick from Boston legal is in it.

I wasn't too sure with robert as stark, but he's growing on me.

and he's always been a little nutty.

yeah, I think ledger could tip the scale.
but people are going to say that regardless just cuzz I think, so it might get a bit cloudy.

Im really looking forward to Norton as the Hulk though.

the last guy..banna was it?
he didn't pull off geeky doctor nearly enough.

I believe Bana was a total miscast tbh, he's a good actor and he did well, but just didn't really work imo.

He's buff as is, bulk up a bit more an he could played the hulk, no cgi needed, ya know?

Saw this tonight. In short, I loved it. They got everything in the right amounts including a fair amount of comedy that I wasn't expecting. It didn't feel out of place at all.

A fairly light hearted affair in places but still ... Awesome.

It didn't put a foot wrong, Marvelous.
