    Army suit increases human strength by 20 times

    A U.S. Army contractor has developed an Iron Man-like suit that can amplify human strength by up to 20 times. (You’d almost be able to lift Biggs, then!) The suit, developed by Salt Late City-based robotics house Sarcos, is expected to go into trials next year. If all the bugs are worked out—the battery currently only lasts about 30 minutes per charge—the Army says it may one day… Read More

  • Marvel rolling in cash, many more movies to come

    Marvel rolling in cash, many more movies to come

    Despite Marvel’s attempt to shut down our Iron Man screening in SF last week, I have nothing but good things to say about them. Well, Marvel Studios to be exact. If you haven’t seen Iron Man yet than something is seriously wrong with you or you have way too many commitments. It was hands-down the best comic book-based movie I have ever seen and I LOVE Batman. Batman Begins was… Read More

    Iron Man vs. GTA IV: They're both winners!

    There was much speculation — especially on the part of this blogger — that the release of GTA IV the same week as Iron Man might hurt the films revenue, the idea being that nerds would be hunkered down with their Xboxes trying to finish the game, or that many had spent their monthly fun budget on the $60 game, with nothing left for Tony Stark. That’s not the case. In fact, both… Read More

    Iron Man a strong start to overall cinematic Marvel universe

    Do you know what I did this last weekend? Besides attending the awesome CrunchGear reader meet-up in New York, my co-bloggers Peter and Devin and I attended a screening of Iron Man, and it was awesome. For reals, the movie is just great. Marvel is setting up a Marvel Universe on film. It was rumored that Samuel L. Jackson would make an appearance as Nick Fury in Iron Man, as he does in the new… Read More

    GTA IV vs. Iron Man: It's on this weekend

    We talked back in March about how all of you nerds spending your time on GTA IV could mean a lull in sales for the opening weekend of Iron Man. Besides spending your weekly allowance on a $60 DVD, you’ll also likely be holed up without food or water, to engrossed in virtual drunk driving to go out and see a movie. This weekend we’ll find out. Iron Man opens on Friday nationwide, and by… Read More

    Iron Man mobile, now with more C&D action

    Hands-on Mobile has released Iron Man: The C&D. Only instead of Tony Stark you play a slightly overweight lawyer who represents Marvel Comics. You always wanted to write real fiction but your mother told you she wasn’t going to pay for any bum so you went to law school and were hoping for a job in politics when you got the Marvel account and you were OK for a time, kind of rationalizing… Read More

  • Marvel cancelling our Iron Man screening? WTF?!

    Marvel cancelling our Iron Man screening? WTF?!

    It appears Marvel is none to happy about us giving our readers in SF a crack at Iron Man before opening day since TC just received a C&D from Marvel. MA used to be a lawyer so hopefully he can get all of this sorted out. Read More

    Iron Man comes to us next week, and we are stoked bloggers. Sure, this isn’t a movie site, but we’ve moved beyond just gear into the CrunchLifestyle, and that includes all things awesome like Iron Man himself. Live Science has put together a neat little gallery and run-down of real-life Iron Man-type power suits that actually exist, including the HAL and Sarcos XOS exoskeletons. This… Read More

    Excited for Iron Man yet? The game’s May 2 release date—one day after the CrunchGear party, for the record—draws nearer. As such, tidbits of gameplay information continue to trickle out, today being no different. A handful of screenshots of unlockable armor have surfaced, much to the delight of Peter “Iron-Man-This-Iron-Man-That” Ha. It’s all he talks about in… Read More

    Sega unveils Iron Man suits from new game

    With Iron Man just a few weeks away from hitting the big screen, there’s been some talk in the video game circles abut the game, and today Sega revealed all the powerful armors available to Iron Man in the new game, and they look pretty sweet. Not only are the suits from the movie represented, but a couple of comic book faves are here as well, including my favorite, the Classic, shown above. Read More

    CrunchArcade: Everything you want to see or know about Iron Man

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=32629 Sega’s upcoming “Iron Man” video game launch will coincide with the theatrical release on May 2 and I’m, well, pretty ecstatic. I haven’t been this excited for a comic book-based movie to come out since “Batman Begins” and I have high hopes for it as I’m sure most of you do too. We haven’t… Read More

    Where did Iron Man (the song) come from?

    Clearly the MSM is working hard to find ways to build up Robert Downey Junior’s turn as Iron Man in the upcoming film of the same name. This usually means the movie will suck but in a cool yet ironic historical exegesis the Boston Globe’s Joshua Glenn explores the roots of Iron Man the comic book and “Iron Man” the song. The Black Sabbath song is actually about a… Read More

    Will the launch of GTAIV affect Iron Man ticket sales?

    Now this is an odd idea, indeed. A guy with my dad’s name (Mike Hickey) at Janco Partners is speculating that the release of GTAIV, arguably the most anticipated game of the year, could perhaps sap ticket sales from Iron Man. Wait, what? The reasoning is that they come out the same week, and that geeks will be too busy trying to beat the game to go out and see a dope-looking superhero film. Read More
