I'm looking forward to this more than any movie in a long time.

In the meantime, "Iron Man" is worth checking out. Great interplay between Robert Downey jnr, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges. The FX are sweet, too. Make sure you watch until the very end.

Fyodor, you're the second bloke in less (fewer?) (both are possible, depending; how rare) than 24 hours to recommend Iron Man to me. Clearly I need to check it out, if only in my neverending quest to understand the male psyche.

"Clearly I need to check it out, if only in my neverending quest to understand the male psyche."

Um...yeah...OK. No promises on that score, but.

Just to add some intertextual incentive for you to see it, there is a more than tenuous connection between Batman and Iron Man, in that both are archetypes of the noblesse oblige trope of the Hooded Hero genre pioneered by Baroness Orczy.
