No Commentary on IRON MAN DVD

But you can win some goodies for Iron Man 2.

Despite reports earlier this year that there would be commentary on the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Iron Man, fans shouldn't expect it because it's not happening at the first launch. Still, the director and leading star Robert Downey Jr. did do a live commentary for the film at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica and FilmCrunch was on hand for some highlights from it.

Throughout the movie, the actor-turned-director pointed out and confirmed various scenes which hinted at both The Avengers movie (visible S.H.I.E.L.D. logos) and the sequel (he noted that the terrorist cell in the movie is merely one branch of Mandarin’s group).

During the commentary, both director and actor listed numerous instances in the film where the scene was either improvised or written days (sometimes even mere hours) prior to filming. Favreau also noted how much he fought for certain liberties, likening his creation more to an independent movie more than the traditional superhero flicks (i.e. Spider-Man, Fantastic Four).

I guess I won't be buying this DVD right out of the gate after all. I'll have to wait till next year when they release the extended edition with a commentary track. Greedy jerks.

Wicked "Boo"!

Iron Man was the first DVD in years I was planning to buy. Now I'm going to spend that money on a DC trade. Way to suck, Marvel.

I agree with everybody. If I ever make a movie and have any pull I'm going to pack the intial DVD with everything-commentaries, featurettes, etc. As a fan of whatever the film that is what you want. Now it's just a rental, so I can see it again.

It is getting to the point where I wonder why I buy DVD's when the companies keep pulling shit like this. I could toss out 75% of my DVD's right now and not miss any of them.

Disapointing... expected more from Favreau, a brother fan...

i stopped reading this article after the phrase "because it's not happening at the first launch" yes spiderhero.. GREEDY FUCKING BASTARDS! well you can still rent this "first launch" version, thats about all its good for (if its bare bones)... hopefully they'll get a 2 disk version out quicker than quentin Tarantino's getting his spcial editions ready for Kill Bill.

okay, fellas... You have to remember that atleast the movie will be on the disc when you get it, and.... IT WAS A KICK ASS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />I own two copies of all Lord of the Rings movies because of the extended footage and the commentaries, so it's no big deal about Iron Man either...
Wiseguy 9/8/2008 8:21:36 PM
Well I'm buying it and any other release that contains any extras I may be interested in. I don't mind blowing $20 on this because of the joy it'll bring me anyway. I have 2 versions of more than a few films,especially comic based films, so no big deal to me.
