But even more, I"d love to see more faithful adaptations of all these characters. I hate this insistence on "having" to reinvent every little detail just because some college professor told some film students that so-and-so doesn't work on the big screen. So no one ever even bothers to try. It's ridiculous.
Nonsense. The Iron Man movies are quite faithful to the source material, much more faithful than anyone expected them to be. It must be noted, however, that the original material is not very good and that you'd be hard pressed to name more than two Iron Man storylines which are considered to be bona fide classics of the superhero genre. Iron Man is much more successful as a movie character than he's ever been as a comic book character, which should tell you something about the perceived quality of the scripts and direction.
