You should all know my love of Iron Man.

If not, I love Iron Man.

Not that way.


Anyway, the movie is incredible. Just great. Paltrow's a lot stiff with her lines and IM does a little more Punisher than I would prefer, but overall it's just one beautiful movie that I loved.

It' up there with Spider-Man 2 as the best Marvel film. I still give Spidey 2 the edge, but it's damn close.

No love for X-men, huh?:)

I really love the first 2 X-films.

Agreed. Tony's one of my faves, so I'm completely biased, but damn if he didn't translate well to the big screen.

Awesome. I'm sure this will mean more Iron Man films, and dare I hope, an Avengers movie?

You can dare away :)

Looks like the cast is signed on for a few more IM movies. That's good for me.

Jon, what bias causes you to leave Howard the Duck, the best Marvel film of all time, off the list of Marvel films?

Just thought you guys would be interested in this:


Variety reports that Iron Man earned $33.4 million on Friday domestically, scoring the second-best Friday in history for a non-sequel after the first Spider-Man.

Overseas, the comic book adaptation grossed at least $30 million Wednesday and Thursday.

Factoring in Thursday night shows, the summer's first tentpole has grossed a sizeable $38.5 million domestically in its first one-and-a-half days. The film is playing in 4,105 theaters.

Friday's haul is the third best for the first weekend in May after last year's Spider-Man 3 ($59.8 million), 2002's Spider-Man ($39.4 million) and besting 2003's X2: X-Men United ($31.2 million).

Iron Man should be able to jump the $90 million mark for the three-and-a-half days. In 2002, Spider-Man grossed $114.8 million in its opening weekend. The final three-day weekend for "X2" clocked in at $85.6 million.

Another report on IM's film gross:


Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios' Iron Man exceeded all expectations, earning a massive $100.75 million during its opening weekend domestically from 4,105 theaters and $104.2 million since debuting Thursday night, averaging $24,543 per site. Internationally, the film has also earned an incredible $96.7 million in 57 countries since it began opening Wednesday, putting its worldwide total at $201 million after just five days! The comic book adaptation, directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges, was the 10th biggest opening of all-time and the fourth biggest for a superhero movie. Among nonsequels, it came in behind only the first Spider-Man, which opened with $114.8 million. As far as May openings, Iron Man came in at #8, just behind X-Men: The Last Stand's $102.8 million when you look at the three-day figure (not counting Thursday night). Financed by Marvel Studios and distributed by Paramount, the movie cost about $150 million to make and $75 million to market.
