Iron Man trailer.

Check it out in Quicktime, baby!

Visually speaking -- This. Trailer. Is. Awesome.

My only beef is with the music cues. Don't care too much for the Black Sabbath, because the song is so overplayed, and an obvious frickin' choice for a movie called Iron Man. Peter Jackson didn't use a single Led Zeppelin song during the Lord of the Rings because it's the kinda thing one should hold off for all the fan-made trailers that pop up on line. It also makes the movie look cheap.

Of all the decent-budgeted comic book films of late, I would say that the worst would be Punisher, Daredevil, and Ghost Rider. Part of the reason those movies were so weak is because they relied too much on music cues from rock bands. Ghost Rider could get a pass since it's about a flaming skull dude on a motorcycle with death metal videos in his eye holes, but hopefully director John Favreau and Paramount are aware that Iron Man is special. More so than Ghost Rider at least. Iron Man deserves a pulse-pounding original score of his own, just like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, and to a lesser extent, the X-Men. Part of the reason those Heroes' movies are worth buying on DVD rather than just renting or skipping altogether, is the music. Let's all hope the music is but a temporary fix, and that the true score will be revealed later on when the film reaches completion.
