Early reviews concerning the forthcoming 'Iron Man' suggested that the Jon Favreau-directed film may become a blockbuster film as the film is said to be a refreshing one.
Expected to make its debut in the North America theaters on May 2, "Iron Man" can be considered as the first from the series of the much anticipated flicks coming in this summer season. Since the news stating that Marvel have taken control over the development of the action film has been blown out by the media, many fans are said to be unable to wait for the end result. And with so much buzz circulating over the superhero flick, the only question remaining now is whether the film will be as good as it is promoted to be.
Picking up the story of Tony Stark, a genius inventor who creates a bulletproof armor suit to escape from Afghan terrorists and eventually known as Iron Man, the Paramount Pictures' film that pairs up a notable actor Robert Downey Jr. with a great director Jon Favreau apparently has wowed the critics with its deliverance as it received overpouring praises from early reviews. Todd McCarthy of Daily Variety has noted that the film is "refreshing" as it delivered a top notch "entertaining special effects extravaganza". Additionally, Kirk Honeycutt from Hollywood Reporter even predicted that the film would not have a problem scoring big at the box office noting that it could "catch boxoffice lightning in a bottle".
Supported also by other talented theps, including Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges and Leslie Bibb, the film based on the Marvel comic book of the same title promises to bring up much action as expected from a superhero film. Critics further noted that the film managed to combine the modern sci-fi technologies with the acting talents of its ensemble cast.
