The Best Buddy Movie Ever.

I have had a brainwave. A most fantabulous, geniurific epiphany that evanesced within the fuddled confines of my grey matter. Movie history will be changed by this, you mark my words. I will tell you, if you listen closely. And once told, you will be so excited that, like me, you will try to think of ways to convince Marvel Studios to make this most exquisite of cinematic dreams a reality.

What is it? I hear you yell, impatiently, with your mind*. It is Iron Man and Wolverine. Yes....I hear your sigh of ecstatic bliss. Yes.

Picture it** Hugh Jackman. Robert Downey Jr. Oh god, it's awesome already and I haven't even gotten to the plot points yet! Okay, right. So, Some evil bastard bad guy [yet to be decided- Galactus would do fine but Fantastic Four already gateballed*** it] is somehow threatening the world [in a manner yet to be decisded- nuclear annihilation? massive zombie mind-control? Interplanetary Engines of Destruction? Nuclearised hamsters? In any case, it's the MacGuffin]. No single Superhero can handle this alone? But who, pray tell, could rise to this task? Iron man and Wolverine are forced to pair up- very reluctantly.

They clash, initially- the smooth, flirty millionaire genius playboy and the gruff, hairy, animalistic, violent hard case****- they argue and squabble and fight for territory. But when the chips are down, they realise that they're both similar in more ways than they thought. They're decent, honorable, and tenacious, true heroes, awesome fighters. Two men of metal, with steel in their spines and iron resolve. And Adamantium in there too, yes.

Kickin' Ass!!! Takin' Names!!!

Oh, it'd totally be the Lethal Weapon******of the millenium. I would pay to see this movie, twice! I'd buy the DVD! and the Playstation game would be... I think my mind just blew.

Okay, Poll time, how many of you are totally into seeing this movie?

*I just really know you so well by now. Yes, you, personally. Don't look at me like that, and put down that kitten, I can see what you're up to.
** Sicily, 1943...
*** if you really want to know what that means, ask Erin.
*****nutcase? whatever, ROWR!
*****the first one, not the one with the horrible south african accents or the sequels where they were both too old for this shit.
