Maybe if this pic is anything to go by.

John Favreau did a great job of 'Zathura' and 'Elf', I really think he's going to make 'Iron Man' a cool movie too, he really loves old school FX work and believes as doing as much on set and in camera as possible.

And the casting's pretty strong too.
Nice to know the cgi might be kept to a minimum, nothing wrong with it, but I think for some directors the 'c' stands for complacent.

And this will be a superhero movie in which a bulky costume is a plus!

Yes, I'm looking at you Batman Begins...

paulhd said...

Absolutely. Really liked BB, but I've always thought Batman she'd be carrying less weight so he can jump around more, sort of like the costume they came up with for the Daredevil film.

Robert Downey Jr is a very very interesting choice for Tony Stark if they follow the alcoholism thing. This could be good

The Spidey film costume is the closest they've come to spandex; as far as I'm aware, there's no padding in it, and yet it looks great. So I'd like to see them try that with Batman, rather than these armoured condom things they keep doing.

Hey, wandered over here to see if there were any zombies, never for a minute expected this, ace!

Bit creepy though...

And as for BB, I too was disappointed to see the armour whipped out again. I know it makes sense, but when I first got a glimpse of the BB costume, I got all giddy at the cape and how it draped, which built up my hopes that we would get something a little more Alex Ross. Even something a bit more Giger-esque might have been nice.
