At this point in my life I don't really care if people think I'm a geek. That's why I'm willing to admit how excited I am to see "Iron Man 2" when it is released May 7.
I love movies based on comic books, especially the ones featuring Marvel superheroes. I own the Spider-Man and X-Men trilogies on DVD, and have the original Iron Man on Blu-ray. I've seen the great ones, the good ones, the bad ones, and the horrific ones. I've found something to like in all of them, even something from "Fantastic Four."
Back in my youth I collected comics, mostly the Marvel ones I've already mentioned. Some of them are still with me in a box downstairs. I keep threatening to dig through them, but I never get around to it.
Anyway, I saw the IM2 clip a little while ago, so that's why I started thinking about all this. I just hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment. Sequels usually don't top the originals. Plus, I make a habit of setting myself up for disappointment. We shall see.
