I rather like AC/DC myself.  The music is simply an addition to these...

Only an old man would find Paltrow attractive.

Guess I'm getting old - she was pretty hot in the first movie.

Generally I'm not that much of a fan of hers, but in Iron Man?  Yup, that worked.

Some Capt. America movie plot points from the director - spoilers apply

... I can't wait to read what the Marvel guys have to say about the new Cap origin.   :-X

I love it!  While not true to the comics, it totally makes sense for the modern era.  Far better that they do this than try to force a goofy looking costume into a current film or given him a completely unrelated look.  Can't wait to see this flick along with the other Avengers titles...

Rumors are hitting the net today that Christopher Nolan is writing Batman 3, and also "overseeing" the Superman reboot.

New trailer

There are some mild to moderate spoilers IMO, so if you avoid them, avoid this.

Otherwise, it's awesome.

I DVR'd Jimmy Kimmel last night since I heard this was going to debut there, and watched it a couple of times this morning.  As was already mentioned, it looks really good I think.  Looks like you can watch it HERE as well now.  This, along with the first half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, are definitely my most anticipated movies of the year (oh, and probably Toy Story 3, because our daughter is really looking forward to that one).

Wow, awesome.  The big armored up fight scene looks amazing.

I never read the comics, but I remember seeing Ironman in some cartoons as a kid and thought he was kinda cool.  The first movie was great so I'm really looking forward to part 2.  I even caved on a few figures - unfortunately.

A bit of news from Christopher Nolan on both the Superman and Batman movie franchises.  He is indeed involved in both, and Goyer is writing the new Superman movie.  Sounds like "Batman 3" will be his last, and will complete his story (and ending he calls it).  He also mentions that all supporting cast/characters will return, and the Mr. Freeze will NOT be the villain.  Also doesn't sound like there is any planned crossover between the Superman and Batman movies.
