I am Iron Man

OK, I’m not really Iron Man, but I did go see the movie tonight, and then I went to Burger King to pick up a fast food IM toy (there are six different toys). On Monday, I’m going to swing by a 7-Eleven to pick up an IM Slurpee cup (there are four different cups).

The film itself was way-cool (a formal review will follow), but yeah, it was pretty awesome (on par with the first two Spidey and X-films).

Oh yeah, when you see it, you need to sit through ALL of the credits for a very important bit of business. Trust me, it is very worth it.

I saw the sneak preview on Wednesday. The movie freaking rocks! I too need to get to BK and get an IM toy. I thought Tony eating BK in the movie was cute and funny.

Yeah, it was Tony eating the BK-burger that clued me into the toy tie in. Oh, if you are interested in reading my full-blown review of the film, go here:

I'll probably try to pick some of these up for my youngest brother.

a request :
I saw the movie, but didn't wait for all the credits.
can you send me on mail ls_atc@012.net.il what it was you're talking about ? (or if you don't have a problem with it, post it as a reply to my comment.
tnx in advance.

I don’t normally do this sort of thing, but this is a special consideration to Haroos (who asked), and anyone else who cares. Here is one link to a post of the after Iron Man credits. This is not the best link that I came across, but it is the one that I found when I just looked.

hey tnx !!
very nice thing' now I think there's a bigger problem :
the x-men, spiderman, and iron man movies are all made by different production companies, which means that there won't be a marvel universe movie anytime soon ...

but still, very very nice (I hope I didn't give anything away).

My understanding is that yes, the movie versions of X-Men, Spider-man, and I think Daredevil are controlled by their respective universes, but I think that Ff, Punisher, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Cap, and others are owned by Marvel’s production company. Hence The comments made by that individual at the end of Iron Man can and do hold water, as that is where they are building for a 2010 release.
