ABOUT THAT IRON MAN TRAILER (AFTER SUPER BOWL SPOT)

CHUD had a look an the upcoming trailer (after the Super Bowl-spot and possibly the last before the movie release) - and this is the trailer description; for which i've shamelessly mirrored here (in point-form, i can't pilfer everything, innit? *cough*) :p

NOTE: the trailer had "some unfinished effects (but includes that PS2 looking Iron Man shooting the tank bit from the Super Bowl commercial ... the music opens with AC/DC's Back in Black and closes with Audioslave's Cochise ... (with) the structure is similar to previous trailers."

- open with Tony in Afghanistan, with some Downey humor.

- The attack happens, he gets captured, he builds the prototype, he escapes.

- Stark returns to America, where he is met by Pepper Potts ... and then we see Stark's supermodern house, which talks to him.

- The next sequences have the creation of the suit, with voice over by Stark explaining that he had a change of heart in captivity and wants to help the people he used to hurt.

- Obadiah Stane goes to Afghanistan to get the grey Iron Man suit schematics.

- Tony learns to fly in the Iron Man armor (poorly).

- We (see) inside the helmet shots of Stark's face as he's flying and then crashing.

- Rhodey pops up with the schematics for the new armor, which is all gold, and Stark tells him to throw in some race car red.

- lots of action with Iron Man and jets

- Iron Monger grabbing a passing motorcycle out from under a guy and nailing Iron Man with it, a nuclear looking punch to the ground.

- Tony Stark addressing what is likely his board of directors: "There's been some speculation I've been running around as a super hero. Let's face it - I'm just not the hero type. Clearly."

here's the MVs of the music mentioned above (for some "mood music" as you imagine the trailer-sequences described LOL

Back In Black by AC/DC


Cochise by Audioslave

TITANIUM MAN


"revealed" on Hasbro's Iron Man Vault of Armor (?) is an image of a Titanium Man toy-figure! agreeing with ComicBookMovie, either tis a character in the movie-based video-game, or a surprise villain in the movie ... if it be the latter, perhaps someone who appears near the end? when Stark's technology falls into the hands of others (Obidah Stane's "parting gift" to Stark?), thereby providing a story/plot for a sequel possible? ... pure speculation from my end, but of coz :)

but of coz, it could just be yet another money-spinner. *cough*

WHO IS THE TITANIUM MAN?

The Titanium Man ("Chelovek-Titan")is the name of two or more fictional characters in the Marvel Comics universe. The original Titanium Man first appeared in Tales of Suspense #69 (September 1965). He was created by Stan Lee and Don Heck.

there have been 3 Titanium Men thus far:

Titanium Man I - Boris Bullski
Boris Bullski donned a suit of armor using the lab of Anton Vanko, the creator of the original Crimson Dynamo armor with the aim of winning back his Party's favor by winning a propaganda victory against the West by defeating the American superhero Iron Man. He assigned the scientists to create a powerful suit of titanium armor based on the Iron Man technology ... Bullski received permission to issue his challenge and Iron Man accepted, defeating Titanium Man in a battle before a worldwide television audience.

Titanium Man II - The Gremlin
The second Titanium Man was the mutant formerly known as the Gremlin, and served with the Soviet-era superhero group, the Soviet Super-Soldiers. The Gremlin was killed in combat with Iron Man during the first "Armor War" when the titanium in the suit exceeded its combustible temperature.

Titanium Man III - The Hammer
The identity of the third (?) Titanium Man is the subject of some controversy. The first time this figure manifested itself, he attacked Stark Enterprises and Iron Man directly, apparently under orders of Stark-Fujikawa (possibly as a mercenary). While he was shown to cherish Soviet paraphernalia and newspaper clippings featuring Boris Bullski, his identity was not firmly established.

Some time later, during a space mission to destroy an enormous asteroid that threatened to impact on Earth, a Titanium Man, claiming to be this same person, stated his name was Andy Stockwell, and had never had a connection with the USSR. However, moments later it was revealed he was actually a member of "The Hammer", an international network of communist sleeper cells who wanted to destroy the United States. He was lost in space, but being not too far away from Earth, may have returned under his own power.

the last scenario would make a decent plot for IRON MAN 2, dunit? IMHO, of coz :p

FUNKO'S IRON MAN MARK-1 BOBBLE-HEAD


SuperheroTimes has unveiled the MARK-1 Wacky Wobbler from FUNKO (last featured as a drawing) along with the MARK-3 wobbler (shown here) ... and frankly, it actually looks pretty cool, and would make a pretty decent super-deformed vinyl toy if it was a tad more articulated and dynamically posed, wouldn't it? IMHO, of coz :)

folks? how much ya wanna bet that the MARK-2 is gonna end up being the WAR MACHINE in the sequels? is Jim Rhodes finally gonna get him sum Iron-Lurve? HAWT!

"When Stark lost his company to Obadiah Stane and relapsed into alcoholism, Rhodes took over the armor and role of Iron Man in Stark's stead, even fighting alongside Stark's colleagues in the Avengers during the Secret Wars. However, he began to experience headaches while using the armor, and over time, his behavior began to grow more erratic and aggressive, prone to violent solutions to given problems. Rhodes's manic mental state was later revealed to be the result of his using armors whose cerebral interfaces were calibrated for Stark's brain, leaving any other long-term user disoriented and confused. When Stark was on the road to recovery, he helped Rhodes maintain the armor, but Rhodes became increasingly paranoid, believing that Stark meant to retake the armor."

"Stark also subsequently designed a heavier-armed version of the Iron Man suit, the "Variable Threat Response Battle Suit" to battle the Masters of Silence, and it became known as the War Machine armor. Rhodes used the War Machine armor as Iron Man when Stark faked his own death while recovering from a life-threatening illness. When the ruse was revealed, it damaged the friendship between the two men, and they went their separate ways."
