'Iron Man 2' vs. the Volcano: Advantage, Volcano

iron-man-2Image Credit: Industrial Light & Magic“My only weakness: Icelandic volcanoes!” The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the planned April 26th world premiere of Iron Man 2 will be moved from London to Los Angeles due to the volcanic dust cloud that has shut down most air traffic from Western Europe. Stark Industries had no comment, but authorities suspect that the Mandarin, supervillain and noted ring enthusiast, may have something to do with this.

Does anyone else find it weird that a gigantic cloud of evil burning ash has been set loose on the world just a few weeks before the end of Lost, a show whose main antagonist is a gigantic cloud of evil black smoke? Seriously, folks, there’s some Neverending Story junk happening here.

    All we need is for that animal to come out of the sky and the theme song to playing in the background.

    Yeah, not long ago Damon Lindelof retweeted a fan’s post that speculated that the volcanic ash cloud was actually just the finale of Lost. Said retweet is now mysteriously missing from Lindelof’s twitter page. HMMMMmmmmm….

      It was actually tweeted by Carlton Cuse not Damon Lindelof.

    You’re serious, right?
    You’re gonna blame a volcanic eruption on a fictional supervillain’s conquest for world domination. What college did you graduate from, DeVry?

      There more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your philosophies Kyle.

    Should’ve been held in the US all along. Last time I checked Tony Stark wasn’t Captain Britain.

    lol Darren, anything that makes me think of Dante’s Peak, LOST, Iron Man and NEVERENDING STORY, (FALKOR!!!!!!!) is a great blog post in my book.

    I’m thinking Falkor will emerge from the Volcano and reveal himself to be Man in Black’s “crazy” mother.

    Oh god, that last paragraph was the highlight of my evening! Forget Falkor, JamieJane, I think it’s pretty clear that the volcanic ash is MIB’s mother and has returned to play mindgames with him in these Final Days. She is taunting him with her freedom to just hang out in the sky and disrupt so many lives, when he is trapped in a wine bottle of an island. Clearly.
