Late Friday night, I was one of the millions of weekend viewers that help make Iron Man the second-best premiere ever. I am surprised by those results, but only because Iron Man isn’t so well-known as other Comic Book heroes like Superman or Batman.
Yes, I liked it and was pretty sure I would even before I wnt. However, Robert Downey Jr. really did an excellent job as Tony Stark and the movie was faithful to the Origin Story, though it was updated to modern times. I love to see the casting of good actors to make these characters into movies.
I had heard that there was an extra clip after the credits (which were super long, btw), so I stayed around until they were over and then snapped the picture to the left of the final scene and thought I’d share it with you.
And the cameo dialog seems to mean there will be a follow-up movie of some sort from Marvel, though maybe not Iron Man 2:”… I’m here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative.”
