Leaked Iron Man 2 Footage from ComicCon

Dark and grainy and inaudible at times, but cool, if you dig this sort of thing.

The movie seems to continue the a-bit-to-the-left-now-a-bit-to-the-right minor muddled politics of the first one. (Which I think is smart in terms of getting audience and probably the best the right can hope for anyway.)

Here, there's a small right-y moment as a Senate committee demands Stark turn over his suit to the government. He refuses, on simple grounds: "Because it's my property!" And that doing so would reduce him to the level of "indentured servitude and/or prostitution, depending on what state you live in."

That's my political excuse for posting this. The real reason is that I'm a huge comic book geek. (Well, I don't read comic books, but I'm a big fan of superhero movies.)

The Senate hearing seems to be a inspired by the interrogations Howard Hughes was subjected to (and Stark is modeled after Howard Hughes, at least earlier in life, before he went off his trolley).

Stealth Objectivism? I don't know much about Objectivism but I know "A is A" is some kind of first principle. Stark here disputes that the suit is a "weapon," and insists upon "defining it as what it is." Stretching, probably.

Probably best to watch it in a larger size here, but a smaller version is embedded below.


Thank to CDR M.
