Anyone else going to see this? We hit the theater last night and man, that was the best super-hero flick I’ve seen in ages. I’m so not a fan of the Spiderman/Batman series, too much brooding or angst but this movie was clever, funny and not so over-the-top with the bad guys that it turned me off like some of the recent Marvel/DC adaptations. I’ll admit to some major when I heard a while back that Robert Downey Jr. got cast in the lead but turns out that Jon Favreau is crazy like a fox because turns out that his dude makes for a perfect Tony Stark and I was never even a big fan of the comic when I used to collect them!
Anyhow, it was fun. Since wild horses couldn’t drag me to see the Hulk remake this summer, this was my perfect popcorn movie to start the season off.
