    Hero who has everything gets robbed of said everything and needs to remember who he is and get up again.

    It's one of the oldest stories ever told.

    Go here for Apple's IM3 gallery. Plenty of large images ready for wallpapering. :)

    Really liked the trailer, can't wait for the movie. I've watched the Extremis motion comic, so I'm very curious to see how much of that story is in the movie.

    Great videos! He is so awesome, and he really knows how to work a crowd. "How much do I love you? Question #2. How much do you love me?" And the little Iron Kids were soooo cute! :) I look forward to this movie and I hope it's really good.

    Me too. I think it's the villain. He just reminds me of Bane.

    He was also the only thing good about that movie, probably because he was the best actor of the lot.

    I'm not a fan of super hero movies, however I've always enjoyed Iron Man, both in comics and the Downey movies. Don't know if it's something about the fact under the suit he's just a normal human being (I say normal lightly).

    I really enjoyed Iron Man 1 but haven't seen 2 yet, is it any good?

    Basically more of the same but bigger! The fights involving Iron Man leave you wanting more than what they give you.

    -The fights last maybe 1 or 2 minutes top

    -Pepper does something stupid near the end IMO

    -The movie was more an advertisement for the avengers movie.

    I never felt IM2 was bigger than IM1. It has a surprising lack of action, and is pretty heavy on characters talking about things instead of doing these things. "I privatized world peace." Care to show some of that? And it gets pretty ridiculous when Tony does alone in his basement in a few hours what thousands of people couldn't do in in institution like CERN for years with unlimited funding even if they wanted to.

    We're talking about a guy that learned Astro Physics in one night.

    And built an armored flight suit with weapons and propitiatory software powered by a device capable of generating enormous levels of electricity -while also being 1000th the size of a "science project" back home inside of a few weeks- using nothing but parts out of some missiles. Once back home he was able to recreate this suit with vastly miniaturized components AND a system to put it on him all, apparently, without anyone knowing. Guess Pepper never wondered why those contractors were coming in and out of his basement to dig the hole for the suit-donning device.

    The only problem I have with the creating the "Stark-inium" in his basement is not that he could do it, Stark had proven himself resourceful. But that he created the powerful laser/accelerator in his basement powered by his home electrical supply. Sure wouldn't want his electrical bill.

    According to "Fury's Big Week", Stark was calling the stuff "Badassium", but was running into difficulties with the patent office. :cool:

    He built the Mark 2 in about 11 days. Hardly enough time for contractors to do the work.

    We've seen that he has robotic factory arms.

    The suit donning thing might have already been in his garage/assembly line.

    Lol, something like that. And I'm sure the Tony Stark ego would love it. :p

    How in any way is The Mandarin as depicted in this trailer reminiscent of Bane?

    Genre fans need bigger imaginations.

    I can kinda see it, in a very general way based on tone.

    It's kinda funny that the greatest weapons technology supplier in the world and inventor of the Iron Man suit has no defense mechanisms at his house that would shoot down armed helicopters.

    The helicopters are posing as News choppers

    Stark probably thought they were paparazzi

    Iron Man is his defense.

    Otherwise,

    "Can I have a AAA missile emplacement on my roof?"

    US Gov't:
    "lol no."
