    Iron Man: The Movie

    Very little info in the way of this movie right now, but it's never to early to start a discussion thread on it. Here's the only real news we have so far, a report from Variety.
    New Line, Marvel Pumping 'Iron' for 2005
    Thu Feb 13,12:54 AM ET

    By Dana Harris and Michael Fleming

    HOLLYWOOD (Variety)
    - "Iron Man" has become the next Marvel character to land on Hollywood's live-action production slate.

    New Line Cinema, which has worked with Marvel on the successful "Blade" franchise, hopes to turn "Iron Man" into a tentpole for its 2005 slate. The studio acquired the property in 2000, but has started from scratch with scribes Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, creators of the WB's top-rated "Smallville" and writers of current hit film "Shanghai Knights" and its predecessor, "Shanghai Noon."

    "Iron Man," which first appeared as a Marvel comic in 1962, is the story of Tony Stark, inventor and owner of Stark Enterprises. His work in corporate espionage and international terrorism leads to an accident that forces him to go on life support in the form of a high-tech bodysuit. This also gives him an alternate identity, Iron Man, a being capable of a heroism Tony Stark could not achieve.

    The latest Marvel property to become an action picture is "Daredevil," which 20th Century Fox releases Friday. Other Marvel characters that have been treated to feature adaptations include Fox's "X-Men" and its sequel, "X2," which is set for a May release. Likewise, Universal will release "The Hulk" in June.

    Marvel also is prepping adaptations of "Fantastic Four" at Fox, "Man-Thing" and "The Punisher" at Artisan Entertainment and "Ghost Rider" at Dimension Films.
    Tom Cruise was intrested in one point in playing Tony Stark. And in an interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Avi Arad seems to be very intrested in Tom Cruise playing the part.

    Avi Arad: "Tom Cruise. I would love to have him for 'Iron Man.' If he wanted it, he could definitely be my Tony Stark."

    Apperantly Cruise's production company "Cruise-Wagner Productions" even had Iron Man optioned at one point, and were setting it up at Paramount. But he decided to do "Mission Impossible" instead.

    I'd only like to see Mr. Mapother play Tony if he's willing to kick it in for the sequels.

    And what the hell is up with Marvel slinging their franchises out to every studio in existence? Do they realize what this does for possible crossover films?

    Will we ever see Hugh Jackman beat up Eric Bana's alter ego?

    Will Tobey and Ben team up to smack Mike Duncan around?

    Will David Hasslehoff ever cameo, anywhere? (Ahhhhh....how quickly we forget Nick Fury.)

    The short answer is no.

    Tom Cruise as Iron Man? Boy what a joke!! thats all we need is a really short super hero. Wait, he could be Tim Drake, aka robin from the cartoon series. Now, that he MIGHT pull off.
    Tom Cruise as IRON MAN...... HaHAhahahahahaha, thats about as funny as Michael Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin. It just doesn't work for me.

    Well-- Batman was played by Michael Keaton- who is only about 5'8" or so.

    Clue me in, when was David Hasselhof Nick Fury? Am I forgetting something?

    I agree that this collection of Movie Studios that Marval has sold to doesn't fair well for cross overs. Seems to me at that there where probally selling to the highest bidder and glad to do it. If Iron Man was sold in 2000 then when where more popular characters like Spidy and X Men sold. Way befor the super hero buzz was about Hollywood.

    Chances are the studios that paid fat cash for Spidy and X men didn't want to risk more money on lessor knows like Daredevil and Iron Man.

    I'd love to see an all out Super Hero movie. With every good guy and bad guy in the land. But that's what the comics are for. No one could afford to pay for all that talent anyway. Perhaps someday we'll get a kickn' cartoon of such an epic super hero battle.


    Besides I think it's be real stange to see DD swaping one liners with Spidy. Tobe and Been just don't seem as though they'd get a long.
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    Heh heh, that was really good.

    God I hope not, I try and try to forget that abomination, but my eyes still have the horror of Fox's TV movie of "Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D." etched into them. Never before have I rooted for a super virus to win the day. That film redefined "garbage".

    i think two studios could get together and work something out. they could share the costs of making the film, and then one would get domestic ticket sales, one would get foreign ticket sales. this was done with titanic.
