Via Amanda and Tom Lee, I see that we've got an Iron Man film in the works. I'm pretty psyched. Besides the reasons Tom notes, it's worth keeping in mind that from the beginning Iron Man has always been the most national security policy oriented of superheroes.

His initial origin story related to the Vietnam War, it was eventually updated for the Gulf War, and the film preview makes it look like they've updated things yet again for the 21st century's military conflicts. Under the circumstances, I firmly expect to be able to get some additional blog posts out of this film in the future. Still, at this point Ultimates is really the comic book movie that I want to see.
