IRON MAN Trailer Online

The trailer for John Favreau’s superhero adaptation Iron Man, premiered online today and for those who have seen the promotion reel that Favreau screened at the San Diego Comic Con in July, than it looks pretty familiar. With just a few tweaks and additions, the footage shown then is here, in a nice, cleaned-up format that will now make all the YouTube postings of phone camera recordings of the Comic Con presentation obsolete.

I have to admit as jazzed as the trailer gets me for the film, I hate the choice of using the old Black Sabbath tune “Iron Man.” It strikes me as painfully obvious and trite. Hopefully it Favreau will show restraint and keep the song out of the movie proper.

Iron Man is currently set for release on May 2, 2008.
