    I stumbled upon it this morning and forgot to save the link. If I can find it again I'll post it.

    Edit: well that was easier than I thought it was going to be. Here's a link: http://iesb.net/index.php?option=com...2434&Itemid=99

    This is cool... But I really wish Stark was doing battle with The Manderin... Rather than the Iron Monger...

    Re: Iron Man

    FYI for all us Iron Man fans, they are filming in Long Beach for the next couple of days. I was walking by the set and saw the Iron Monger, it's pretty cool. From what I can gather the filming is at night.

    First Look
    Exclusive: This is 'Iron Man'

    Sneak a peek at the new robo-suit that will turn Robert Downey Jr. into a comic-book legend in the May 2008 movie



    PUMPING 'IRON' Downey Jr.'s costume, designed by Oscar-winning F/X guru Winston

    By Jeff Jensen
    EW
    Jeff Jensen, an EW senior writer, has been despondent since the cancellation of ''Twin Peaks''

    Iron Man is the latest Marvel Comics superhero to jump from splash page to big screen. (The film is due May 2008.) Director Jon Favreau (Elf ) began shooting in March with star Robert Downey Jr. — in his first comic-book role — as the man inside the cybernetic Mark III suit (pictured) and Gwyneth Paltrow as his trusted assistant. In the film, Downey plays Tony Stark, a playboy industrialist who decides to don high-tech armor to fight baddies after suffering a life-threatening heart injury in war-torn Afghanistan. ''This is a decidedly adult superhero story,'' says Favreau. (Fanboy FYI: Look for Stark's legendary drinking problem to pop up in possible sequels.)

    Faithful to the comics and constructed by Oscar-winning F/X maestro Stan Winston, the Iron Man togs — a far cry from Stark's normal black-tie attire — are robo-cool but make for restrictive, sweaty duds. ''Robert was very bullish on wearing the suit whenever possible,'' says Favreau of his star, who bulked up for the role. ''Now I don't know if he's such a fan of that idea.''

    Cool thanks. I know they've spent quality time at the Downey(!) Studios as well, no relation that I'm aware of.

    ILM ready to forge Marvel's 'Iron'

    By Carolyn Giardina
    The Hollywood Reporter
    May 14, 2007

    Industrial Light + Magic will be the principal visual effects house on Marvel Studios' "Iron Man."

    It also was confirmed Friday that ILM sister company Skywalker Sound will handle sound design and mixing on the film and that Deluxe's DI business Efilm, which opened a DI suite at Skywalker Ranch last year, will do the film's color timing and mastering.

    "Iron Man" is helmed by Jon Favreau with John Nelson as visual effects supervisor; a May 2008 release is planned.

    Visual effects supervisor Ben Snow is heading up the ILM team with animation supervisor Hal Hickel. Wayne Billheimer is producing for ILM, with Gretchen Libby as ILM's executive producer on the project. Chris Boyes will be the film's sound design and lead re-recording mixer.

    "We are thrilled to partner with Industrial Light + Magic on 'Iron Man,' " said Kevin Feige, president of production at Marvel. "The visual effects expertise they bring to this project fit perfectly with the high-tech look and feel of this film."

    Added Charlie Davis, Marvel's senior vp postproduction, "The postproduction process on a movie of this scope is always very complex, and having ILM create the visual effects, Skywalker Sound design and mix the sound and Efilm digital color time the picture all in close proximity up in San Francisco is the best of all worlds come together."

    Nelson won an Oscar for "Gladiator." Snow served as a VFX supervisor on "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones." Hickel earned an Academy Award this year for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest." Boyes is a four-time Oscar winner for "Dead Man's Chest," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," "Pearl Harbor" and "Titanic."

    Re: Iron Man


    Michael Muller


    We Are Iron Man
    Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges

    WHY THEM
    Holy moly, people, why not them? A single movie that gathers four of Hollywood's finest actors, who among them have collected seven Oscar nominations — we're already waiting in line. The occasion for this titanic teamup is one of those big fat Hollywood superhero movies, albeit one that promises to pulse with intelligence and sophistication worthy of its tony cast.

    THE MAIN MAN
    Directed by actor-turned-director Jon Favreau — and due in theaters next May — Iron Man boasts a main character who's a far cry from the usual Marvel Comics mutant teenager or irradiated geek. He's Tony Stark, a playboy billionaire weapons manufacturer who becomes a born-again do-gooder in high-tech duds after a brush with death forces him to reevaluate his life. The adultness of the hero is what engaged Favreau. ''I just turned 40 years old,'' says the Elf director. ''It's nice to be able to deal with a character — and cast members — with whom I can see eye to eye, as opposed to an adolescent fantasy.''

    WHO'S WHO
    Bridges is Stark's mentor, Obadiah Stane. Paltrow is Pepper Potts, Stark's loyal secretary. And Howard is Jim Rhodes, Stark's right-hand man (who in future movies might just don some armor himself). But Downey is the man behind the mask — and having a blast. ''I'm on Planet Iron Man,'' he says. ''And, with all due respect to Earth, it's the greatest.''

    BACK FROM THE BRINK
    For Downey, who says he lobbied hard for the part, Iron Man completes his remarkable comeback from personal and professional near-oblivion. ''I'm not as prone to self-centered reckless abandon as I used to be,'' says the actor. ''Part of it is about rolling with the right crew. And I'm certainly rolling with a good one right now.''

    This is looking really really good to me. Robert Downey Jr. is looking like a million bucks. What a great cast.

    Re: Iron Man

    I have never read an Iron Man comic book in my life, and have never been a fan of most of the Avengers characters. However, this looks like it might be a great movie. Hopefully it will be able to mix real intelligent thought with great action like Batman Begins (which is probablly the best comic book movie ever made) did. Next summer is shaping up to be a good one:
    Indy 4
    Prince Caspian
    Wall-E
    The Dark Knight
    Iron Man
    and The Incredible Hulk.

    Principal photography ended with a huge bang as we filmed the final scenes of Iron Man in Caesar's Palace. As many of you already know, gambling is a casino's top priority. A production can not interfere with their cash cow. As a result, movies must shoot during the dead hours, no matter if it's Swingers or Rain Man. We were given a window of midnight to one the next afternoon to do all of our work. Part of our strategy to prepare for these ungodly hours was to stay up as late as possible the night before and sleep as late as possible. I did half the plan. The wrong half. I stayed out until 7AM and then woke up four hours later. After motoring through the delerium of a sleepless shooting marathon, I am proud to report that we have handily completed our movie on time and on budget. What a great way to end.

    I would also like to thank Ceasars for their hospitality, generosity, and Swank accomodations.

    Jon Favreau update:

    Now that the movie is finally wrapped, I can spend a little more time filling you all in. I have been reading as many of your posts as I can and here are responses to your most popular questions:

    First of all, as you probably already know, there is not a teaser trailer on the front of Transformers as many of you had hoped and speculated. We are, however, planning to reveal something very cool very soon. This month, in fact. In San Diego. We've secured a prime slot Saturday afternoon in the big room at SDCC. We will split an hour with Marvel and Hulk and plan to cut something together to reward the fans for their interest, support and patience. In addition to our Saturday afternoon presentation, we will be doing a signing and poster giveaway at the Marvel booth on Saturday. Paramount is also doing a rundown of its slate on Thursday which I will do my best to attend as well.

    Second of all, you had questions about Iron Monger/Mandarin/Obadiah Stane. My response is read the books. We took certain liberties to keep things fresh and unexpected but we are essentially using the books to inspire our story. Iron Man fans should have no problem piecing together what's what. As far as what villians appear in this movie's storyline, I should reiterate that in the year spent developing our story we decided to treat Iron Man as a first chapter. We cover the origin story and the rise of the hero. It stands alone as a movie, but definitely leaves room for more to be told. Sequels often feel like the story was slapped together in a scramble to exploit a successful franchise. I prefer when stories are mapped out in advance. They feel less repetitive and arbitrary. Additional Iron Man movies are by no means guaranteed but, if we are lucky enough to do more, we will be ready to do them well.

    Third. Cameos. I've read that Sam Jackson and Hilary Swank are Shield agents and that I myself play a Vegas security guard. There is no truth to any of these rumors.

    (Well, maybe one is true.)
