The Onion has put up an amusing commentary on the Iron Man publicity blitz. They raise an interesting point - after the deluge of trailers, teasers, TV spots and clips of entire scenes, are there any surprises left in the film? Has the marketing effectively ruined the film's chance of being an entertaining and fresh experience?

It is possible that they've shown too much. In fact leaving no surprises.

However one actor that I'm looking forward that I have not seen is Jeff Bridges, and I am looking forward to his involvement in this.

As I'm pretty sure this film will be quite awesome, I've tried to stay away from various film clips and TV spots (only watched the first teaser trailer, the superbowl spot and the theatrical trailer). Still feels like I've seen quite a lot, and it'd be pretty hilarious if someone cut together pretty much the entire film using just Iron Man publicity material. razz

Yeah, I've avoided any trailers and teasers as well.

All I know about Iron Man is that it's about Robert Downey Jr blowing things up and, from the looks of the trailer, fighting someone else who's also dressed like Iron Man.

That video is hilarious.
