Commercial Break: How Cool is This?

I can't help myself. I am really excited to see the Iron Man movie. The more I read about it online, the giddier I get. From skeptic to clear fangirl, I have really grown to love the concept of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.

The other good news is that the Tony in this movie has hopefully never heard of Civil War or ran S.H.I.E.L.D. I am ready for some old school Iron Man.

Quick Side Note: Tomorrow is my "get in shape" weigh in, so I will be home late. I will see you Friday! Have a great one!

I hate to be the Dr. Smith of the Comics Fairplay Jupiter 2, but nope, it's part of the boycott. I've told my friends I will see it if they want to, but someone's got to cough up green and buy me a ticket. Or I will buy a ticket for another movie and see Iron Man instead. Everyone keeps questioning my "iron will" and it's like they never met someone from the hills of Kentucky; we say something, we damned well mean it. My last Marvel purchase was the first issue of Thor since I did want to read it after he got screwed in Sybil War. Since then, that's it, no Cap/Steve Rogers and then try to sell us some jerk in a new costume with a knife and a gun! Just cut loose The Punisher, sell him to DC and I'd never worry about reading another book from the worst company currently in the business...

Good luck on the weigh-in, I know you will do well.
Also, on a side note, my computer decided he didn't like the looks of 2008 and packed it in on NYE. So, I'm on the bride's pc, having a time getting here, sharing with 3 females, sheesh! I'm waiting for the cat to start demanding her alloted time next. Anyway, hope all is well, see you on the flip side...

I will see this movie at least twice in the theater (maybe three times). I may even suprise my wife or daughter by redecorating bedrooms with Ironman bedsheets. I will also buy the bluray dvd four months later.

Since the Iron Man movie seems to be a celebration of all that was GOOD about the character, I'll be the first one in line. What a great image you posted, Heidi. Can't wait for this thing.

When Robert Downey Jr was picked as Tony, I knew this was going to be a good flick.

Carl, that is okay. You can boycott. I am just hoping that one of your friends buy you a ticket because it does look cool!

Thank you for the well wishes!

I am really impressed you are sticking to your guns on your Marvel boycott. Nice one!

Thats a great idea guy: Just for that reason, I may have to go four times. LOL! I will also buy my hubby Iron Man footie jammies. :-)

Mark, the image really got me. I couldn't believe how great the armor has translated. That was one of my worries.

Hopefully I will be right there with you up at the front of the line. This movie looks incredible!

Swinebread: AMEN!
