Courtesy Ctrl+Alt+Del comes this trailer of the film adaptation of the Marvel comic book, Iron Man:

For those (like me) who are far less comics-savvy than Showbits reader Gene D.: no, that isn't War Machine in the trailer. "Iron Man's original suit in the comic books was gray," writes Gene; "Later, it became the familiar red and gold." So the early appearance of ironclad Robert Downey Jr. should not be confused for his similarly-equipped, monochomatic sidekick.Until this film releases on May 2nd, you can sate yourself with the direct-to-DVD animated origin story, released this past January.

    The official trailer for this film is now available! Contentwise, it looks identical — but the editing and soundtrack (and, obviously, the video quality) are dramatically improved. But what's with the titular gargle at the end?

    The above trailer that was so popular when posted last summer will be adapted into a feature-length film, reports The Onion.
