First look at Iron Man....

As you may know Jon Favreau has been attached to direct Iron Man and has been using Myspace and a fair dash of his astute humour to document/publicise the movie. Check out his Myspace profile for updates such as the above amazing sneak peek at an Iron Man production sketch. There's also a Myspace Group. He writes:

This drawing was done by my four year old son, Max. This first image should put to rest any doubts that I am in fact the right director for this project. As you can see, the design wasstrongly influenced by the Granov/Extremis incarnation of the GoldenAvenger. I've also incorporated certain key aspects of the Ultimates,as the design lends itself easily to cinematic interpretation. Finally, for you purists, I've maintained the round chest light as atip of the hat to Marvel's Silver Age.

Ahh this is reminding me of Swingers must watch it again although Mikey's phone call just gets more and more painful each time. Damn nostalgia, Swingers and The Big Lebowski, (the lebowskifest site's great check out these achievers) were the late 1990s not the best time for quotable drink-based movies.

Mike: You shouldn't be sorry, you're a winner. I'm the fucking loser. I'm the one who should be sorry.
Trent: Baby don't talk that way.
Mike: Can we just go, please, can we go?
Trent: Baby look at me, look at me. You're money, and you know what else? You're a big winner tonight.
Mike: I want to leave.
Trent: You're a big winner. I'm gonna ask you a simple question and I want you to listen to me: who's the big winner here tonight at the casino? Huh? Mikey, that's who. Mikey's the big winner. Mikey wins.
