Iron I-Max 2? In 3D?

09.11.2008

So, THE DARK KNIGHT. That turned out to be pretty big, huh? Wonder how future superhero movies might try to do things even bigger?

Well, if Jon "Favs" Favreau has his way, he'll get to make IRON MAN 2 filmed entirely for the gargantuan IMAX screens -- and in 3-D! While pimping the new IRON MAN DVD, Favs told Collider that the IMAX-specific footage in TDK was a "game changer" and that he'd be interested in doing part or all of his metal-shrouded sequel in the format, and in 3-D if budget allows.

There isn't much else known about IRON MAN 2 yet, since they haven't actively begun working on it (despite a proposed summer 2010 release), but Favs did apparently drop hints about Mandarin and War Machine. Fortunately he wants to refrain from the film's tone going in the darker direction everyone wants to go post-TDK.

I couldn't care less about IMAX, but I absolutely hate 3D. Just make your movie, Favs, and leave the gimmicks for the inevitable theme park ride.

I've always found 3D to be somewhat gimmicky. IMAX on the other hand, is spectacular.

If they introduce Mandarin, could that mean we'll see a possible Dr. Strange cameo? God that would rock if done correctly.

Don't care a lot about IMAX or 3D for this--the big screen is just fine.

But I'm glad to hear Favs doesn't want to just ape the "dark" trend of TDK--aside from the alcoholism storyline, I don't think Iron Man needs to go too dark..

im2

Awsome, I've never seen a film in IMAX and if this one is getting the IMAX treatment then I just might have to check it out.

I'm really stoked for IRON-MAN 2 and the fact that Favs and Downey Jr are back just makes the feeling even better, I think the addition of War Machine and Mandarin in 2 are the way to go for the sequel. I can't wait!

Yes and No

I'm the reverse of Brandall, Imax no, 3d yes. For select sequences perhaps. See, Dark Knight used Imax to create a larger world. He specifically shot outdoor footage in Imax, to create the illusion of a larger, more real city. It served a larger artistic purpose, rather than simple spectacle.

So If Favs is going to use either of these technologies, let it be driven by story, not the desire to out-wow people.

The Iron Man Pic

Wow, that Iron Man pic was drawn by a digital art professor here at my college.
I suggest everyone check out Bryan Ballingers work. It's all a lot of fun.

Ah, nothing like Joblo hitting close to home :)

I hope he doesn't mean he wants to shoot it with IMAX cameras. That presents two problems. 1. Fav isn't exactly a visual director and 2. The Dark Knight filmed IMAX scenes with very little CGI. Iron Man is nothing but. To put CGI on Imax stock means they have to transfer the footage to 8k as opposed to the usual 2k or 4k they do for 35mm. So, in essence, ILM will be doing more than twice the work on every shot. I don't know. 3D is a joke and Iron Man isn't exactly my choice of film to see blown

wow..

Fav's is really stepping up his game now. IMAX would be the best for this. Why wasn't the first in IMAX? It will be cool seeing it 3D in IMAX, but they need to have a really great story to go along with it as well.
