Men of Steel


Via a comment on Glenn Kenny's blog, I found a link to this fascinating article, outlining the odd connections between Iron Man and the Black Sabbath song of the same name (which is all over the IM movie trailer).



It not only feeds my superhero fetish, but acts as a nice example of blogging as a tracing of links, fueled by obsession, desire and curiosity: in other words, the best kind of writing.

Is it wrong that I find Robert Downey Jr. oddly hot as a cyborg-esque superhero? Mayhap I have watched entirely too much mecha themed anime...

Now if only he had a boyish sidekick, then this film would be ripe for all kind of slash-tastic fun!

Well, maybe they're saving that for the sequel. (:
