From Toy Faire Germany, advanced footage from Marvel's upcoming films Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk has been glimpsed, revealing more about both productions. Ain't It Cool News had someone on the scene, who provided his reports of the footage.
Their spy says of Iron Man, "...we saw the scene in which Tony Stark tests his Iron Man suit for the first time (in his garage). Of course this almost goes wrong. He speeds into a tunnel, gets out in the open and flies past a Ferris wheel. A malfunction in his suit makes him go higher and higher, almost leaving the stratosphere and running out of air. Then the suit goes completely dead and Stark falls to the earth. Just in time he manages to get his suit working again, making a mess of the traffic in the streets."
It sounds like this footage was a continuation of the scene shown in the trailer that aired with the Superbowl. While the scene does sound exciting, it doesn't really tell us anything more than what we had known about the upcoming movie. What he had to say about The Incredible Hulk was much more revealing:
What we saw looked like the first official trailer. The scene opens with Edward Norton meditating. We see images of a lab, experiments, Banner escaping from the (Russian?) military (led by William Hurt and Tim Roth), running in the streets, kissing Liv Tyler, guns, shooting, more running... The 'trailer' ends with Abomination walking towards Hulk. Remember the end of Rocky III? Apollo Creed wants to hit Rocky in their friendly duel? That's exactly the way the trailer ends. Abomination wants to hit Hulk. Hulk wants to hit Abomination, but before it actually happens the trailer is over. Abomination looks like a Hulk with the Voldemort face from the first Harry Potter movie. A really mean motha. He sure is a great opponent.
This sounds like a trailer that is worth waiting for - hopefully we'll get footage of it in the U.S. soon.
