It’s pretty amazing to see what Marvel Studios has done to resurrect the comic book genre in Hollywood. Not that it was that great to begin with. Adaptations released in the last decade have been comical and far too corny. The X-Men movies were terrible including Wolverine, which has to be the worst of the bunch.
Not that DC has done any better. No matter what anyone says, Bryan Singer’s ‘Superman Returns’ was awful, which is probably why he isn’t going to be involved with the next one if it ever gets the green light. I’ve been saying this for years and I’ll say it again because we’re still in the honeymoon phase. DC needs to adapt the Death of Superman story arc into a movie. It would be perfect. Anyway, DC recently formed their own studio and I’m hoping they return their universe to glory. Hopefully Green Lantern will be the kick-off. (Update:Oh crap, I totally forgot about Nolan’s Batman flicks and the original Batman. This is what happens when the rest of the universe goes to crap. I <3 Batman.)
But I digress. Marvel Studios’ Iron Man was fantastic and I have no doubt that Iron Man 2 will be even better. Empire revealed the international poster for IM2 earlier today. Doesn’t Tony look happy? In case you missed the official US poster.
