Mickey Rourke’s whiplash menace in ‘Iron Man 2’

Dec. 11, 2009 | 12:13 a.m.

What’s the most anticipated fanboy film of 2010?

There’s a deep list to consider. “Alice in Wonderland” springs to mind. And don’t forget the new films in the “Harry Potter,” “Twilight,” “Toy Story” and “Narnia” franchises. I have high hopes, too, for the Hollywood adaptations of “Kick Ass,” “Jonah Hex” and “Percy Jackson.” And how about those revisitations to the three grand brand names of the 1980s: “Tron Legacy,” “Predators” and “Clash of the Titans“?

Whew. It’s going to be a busy year here at Hero Complex. We expect a lot of surprises but, as of right now, I’d have to say that the surest bet of 2010 is “Iron Man 2” in May. Why? Let me list the reasons: Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Sam Rockewell and the guy in this just-released poster for the Marvel Studios release….

    Is it just me, or do Mickey Rorke's legs seem too short in this poster?

  2. Iron Man is, of course going to be amazing, but I'm hoping that Johan Hex and Tim Burton's Alice remake are better that I might suspect that they are.

    Considering that his waist is below his elbows and he appears to be very long waisted, and also considering his pants are low on his hips, I would say his legs look in proper proportion.
