Enough with the political and religious crap, let's get to something important -- there's gonna be an "Iron Man" movie! Check out the IMDB entry. And the big breaking news apparently is that Robert Downy Junior is going to play Tony Stark (aka Iron Man). I have to say, I'm curious to see how this turns out. I always liked the character and the computer graphics nowadays seem likely to be able to do the special effects justice. And goodness knows, RDJ has the background to play an alcoholic.
My boss asked me once why I don't rush out to see any super-hero movie that comes down the pike, given that I love super-heroes so much. For instance, I refused to see "Fantastic Four". Basically, I avoid bad super-hero movies exactly because I like super-heroes so much. I hate seeing them done poorly, I just want to tear out what little hair I have left. Hopefully "Iron Man" will be more in the "Spider-Man"/"X-Men" mold and less in the "Fantastic Four"/"Punisher" one, but only time will tell.
