Iron Man

Jon Favreau is set to direct Marvel's Iron Man which will be out in 2008. I'm not a big Iron Man fan basically because I never read the comic but I've always loved his suit/armor.

The best news about the movie so far is that both Tom Cruise and Nicolas Cage who have expressed interest will not be playing Tony Stark (Iron Man).

Stars bring too much baggage with them. I don't think Daredevil benefited by casting Ben Affleck at the height of his popularity, even if he did desperately want to play the character. Tobey Maguire was a relative unknown when he was cast in Spider-Man. That's the kind of actor I'm looking for. Someone with experience but a low profile.

I've heard enough, no Cruise or Cage I'm sold. Favreau has done decent work in the movies he has directed before with Made, Elf and Zathura that there's no reason to believe that Iron Man shouldn't come out well in his hands.

" I'm not a big Iron Man basically because"--you're kidding me, right? I thought you were Iron Man all this time!?!
