CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE!!!!!
I used to collect comics very heavily when I was younger (I'm 45 now) and the Avengers, while not always my absolute fav's, always had a special place in my heart. I am VERY ready for this movie. Only thing though :
I grew up on Marvel comics. I like what Robert Downey Jr. has done with the Tony Stark role, and he now *is* Iron Man/Tony Stark - but - he is NOT the Tony Stark I remember from my collecting days. I always hear people comment that Downey IS Tony Stark. To which I always ask : Really?! I did'nt always collect Iron Man. But I used to have enough of them to be familiar with the character and I must say I do not recall Stark being this eccentric. Please, if anyone else who collected these books in the 80s/90s remembers differently I'd love to know. I dont know if its me remembering it wrong or what.
Just to clarify, I LOVE what Downey has done with the role. To me in the movies he IS Tony Stark.
