jonfav.jpgOver at his MySpace page, Jon Favreau posted a message to let everyone know we’ll be seeing some of that Iron Man footage real soon.

I hear you all loud and clear. You want to see the footage that we brought to SDCC. Why not post it in HD instead of having everyone download a grainy bootleg? I agree. I am trying to get a version out to you ASAP. This is a big movie, however, and it takes time to get the proper approvals from all parties involved.

I am happy to report that both Marvel and Paramount have agreed to get a version of the footage out to you very soon. I will report the specifics when I get them. Thanks for your enthusiasm and patience.

Well hot damn. For those who got to see the footage at the San Diego Comic-Con, how was it?

  1. I wasn’t at the Con, but I did see a grainy bootleg of the type Favreau was referring to (maybe on Aint It Cool, not sure.) Honestly, Iron Man has leapfrogged WALL-E and The Dark Knight as my “must see” for next year. It looks seriously well put together–Favreau apparently isn’t dicking around and letting beancounters handicap his film. Seems like even more than with Spider-Man, Marvel and Avi Arad is giving a director a free hand to recreate something closer to the actual Marvel Universe in a film (even if it’s more Ultimate than 616.) Maybe it’s because Iron Man is considered a second-tier character (though that doesn’t explain Daredevil and Ghost Rider.) Either way, this is not some 2-hour excuse to sell toys, or an exercise in retarded summer blockbusters. Even the few small and fuzzy images I saw reeked of QUALITY.

    You do see the suit flying a bit, but the real treat of the footage was Tony kicking ass on his captors with the Mark I. I hope to see a nice looking version of the clip pretty soon.

  2. Downey is about as perfect as casting, physically and attitude-wise, as you could ask for Stark. And he’s a great actor to boot. The clip definitely looked promising.
