You’ve been waiting for it, they told you it was coming, and now it’s finally here — the high-quality Quicktime Iron Man trailer that was shown at Comic Con is now online at Apple.com for your viewing pleasure! Well, okay, it’s a lot shorter than the one shown at Comic Con, but basically all the cool images and scenes have shown up, including, if I’m not mistaken, our first look at Jeff Bridges in and out of Iron Monger costume. So what did I get from this thing? It’s going to be funny (though not tongue-in-cheek), it’s going to be action-packed (though with an eye toward reality, if such a thing is possible in a comic book movie), and Jon Favreau has done an outstanding job. At least, from the looks of the trailer.
Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist and inventor, is kidnapped and forced by his captors to design and build a weapon. Secretly, Stark instead creates a mechanized suit of armor and escapes. Returning to the U.S., he discovers a dangerous plot and becomes Iron Man to stop it.
