Only 30 days and counting until the summer movie season kicks off with Iron Man on May 2nd! We've seen a lot of footage and a lot of trailers for Iron Man already, but I'm wondering how much more there is to it. And I say that because I think there is a LOT more that we don't even know about yet. We're going to be in for one hell of a treat come May. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, some new photos have popped up over at SuperHeroHype and they're pretty awesome. These should give you that last bit of energy you need to last 30 more days!
Just take a look at that last trailer. Besides a few scenes at the end of Iron Man fighting Iron Monger, there is the entire last half of the movie that we haven't seen a glimpse of. Or for that matter, we don't even know what happens. There is an odd explosion of blue light that shoots straight up into the sky - but where does that come from, what the heck is going on even? Once Iron Man gets established and starts kicking some ass, the sky's the limit from there!
I'm wondering how much more you think there is. Given we are all more excited for Indiana Jones 4 or The Dark Knight over Iron Man (just go read everyone's thoughts here), it doesn't mean that I can sit back and think about how incredible Iron Man is going to be before we even get close to those other summer blockbusters. Unlike Transformers last summer, where we had seen most of the big action set pieces in trailers or footage by release, I think Iron Man and our friend Jon Favreau has a lot hidden up his sleeve that is waiting to be revealed.
Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau, of Zathura and Elf previously. The movie was written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Mark Fergus (Children of Men, First Snow), and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, First Snow). Iron Man hits theaters everywhere this summer on May 2nd - see you in theaters!!
