ENewsI.com has a nice preview up of five clips from the Iron Man movie.  I suppose SPOILERS are present, depending on what you want to know, since these are straight out of the movie.

So, anyone heading out to see Iron Man this weekend?  Even though he might not be quite as well known as the likes of Spidey, Batman, and Superman - there does seem to be quite a bit of buzz building up for this movie lately.  I'm hoping it does well - early reviews have been pretty good for what I have seen.  I'd like to get out to see it, but with the little one now its more difficult for us to get to movies.  If I go, I'd likely have to go alone.  There's lots of good stuff coming out this summer that we'd like to see, so we're trying to pick and choose.  We haven't left our daughter once since she's been born, so it might be tough to do the first time.  Maybe at Indy :P.

You should do it for Iron Man just to get that first time out of the way.  That way you won't have the feeling of guilt during Indy.  :P

I don't know if we'll get there this weekend but I'm pretty anxious to see it.  I've also heard some good things and the more I see the clips the more excited I get.  I think it will be a fun ride.

New Hulk trailer is up! http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/theincrediblehulk/

Is it just me or did I catch a bit of the "Sad Walking Away" theme at the end of this?

Wow, that is it. They remembered the Incredible Hulk song, nice.

For anyone heading to Iron Man this weekend (or anytime), according to SHH there is a scene after the end of the credits - so stick around!

EDIT:  It was briefly on YouTube (or maybe still is somewhere), and apparently involves a certain cameo that had been rumored.  I'll leave it at that for the spoiler sensitive.  Also, it says in the same article at SHH that if the movie does as well as they are hoping, they are expecting Iron Man 2 in 2010.

IRON MAN WAS AWESOME. Seriously the best superhero movie since Batman Begins and the second best Marvel movie behind Spider Man 2. It had pretty much everything, good acting (!), a story that made sense without getting too political (!!), lots of humor (!!!)... just an overall good time.

I second what Anton said, STAY THROUGH THE CREDITS. You'll see a familiar face and won't be disappointed.

I agree- stay through the credits. I'm glad I did.  :)

You think you're the only ************* superhero in this world?

I agree with Diddly, IM was one of the best superhero movies I've seen in a while. Much like the first Spiderman, it had a perfect mix of lighter comic stuff and more serious action sequences. The scene after the credits was great, fantastic tie-in to a sequel.

So, I wonder if they will tie in The Avengers and a rampaging Hulk somehow in to this mix?

Thor and Captain America both have movies coming, add in Wasp and someone else and instant classic

I thought the next one in line was an Ant Man movie - anyone know if that has changed following the writer's strike?

Ant Man is still in the works I believe. I saw Iron Man twice this weekend. I believe this is my favorite Marvel movie to date.
I remember my dream now.
