Iron Man: The Merchant of Death
Over the last week or so I’ve been pretty sick. What started as a bit of a sniffle evolved into every orifice in my body having a “How much can we expel?” competition (I wont list the podium). Suffice to say, keeping my (blocked) ear to the internet in an attempt to keep up with all the latest geek news was the last thing on my list – what with all the snot, phlegm and coughing up blood to do.
Given my condition and my ‘lack of keeping up with stuff’ status this week could have almost seen one the blackest days in elroyonline history were it not for the diligence of ace cub reporter and elroyketeer, RobbieC, who dutifully emailed me a link to the following video.
San Diego played host to Comic Con 2007 over the last few days however, sadly the few google ads here on eol have never provided enough to fund a snickers bar, let alone sending me to a fanboy Mecca such as Comic Con so you all missed out on the most awesome coverage ever.
What I missed out on (through illness and lack of funding) was seeing, in person, Iron Man director Jon Favreau talking about the movie, and showing this exclusive (to comic con) clip… which has thankfully been leaked:
I’ve been keeping an eye on the progress of the Iron Man movie since back in June of 2006, and every step of the way my excitement for the film has grown. Favreau made some pretty bold statements back when he was announced as the director of this movie and, if the clip is anything to go by, he may just have lived up to a few of them.
I’d like to post more, but I’ve got a head full of snot at the moment and, really, the clip speaks for itself.
