    "Iron Man": Movie Novelisation

    3 April 2008/ISBN 0141324554

    Synopsis
    Based on the Marvel Comics Character and the "Iron Man" film releasing Summer 2008; billionaire playboy industrialist Tony Stark makes weapons for the U.S. government. While out on a field test of one of his inventions, he is wounded, captured and forced to make weapons for the enemy. Instead, he fashions himself a crude power armour to save his life and facilitate his escape. When he returns home, he revises his armour and finds purpose as the Armoured Avenger Iron Man!

    Sounds great. I really enjoyed the Novelisation of Spider-Man 3 (some elements of it were better than the film), so i have no doubts that the Iron Man one will be amazing.

    I love Peter David's novelizations. He's done all the Spider-Man films and then the Hulk and now Iron Man.

    I love it.

    This is good. His Hulk novelization was better than the actual film. Of course PAD can turn just about anything Hulk into gold.

    So these things aren't exactly like the movies.
    Seems to be a waste anyways.

    I understand reading novels that were turned into books, simply for the fact that they are always richer then anything that can be translated onto screen, and that they were penned by a writer that was good enough to entice big hollywood money...

    But to read a novel adapted from a script... As far as literary stimulation that might be two steps ahead of reading a Goosebump book.

    Sure, on the "Cool Scale", movie novelizations are just below those Star Wars or Star Trek or Halo-Universe paperbacks, but I love them. Usually they are based on earlier script drafts and include scenes we don't normally get to see until the DVD release. Plus characters are given a little more depth.

    I usually read the novel right after viewing the movie for the first time so as to not ruin the ending. Although if the novel is released too early, I will start reading it and force myself to stop before I get too far into it. I've gotten all the Marvel novelizations so far (including Howard the Duck) so now it's a full blown hobby for me.

    Of course this is the only place I talk about it. It's kinda my bastard-child of a hobby.

    Not sure if I want to read this before the movie. Last novelization I bought and read was for X-2. While I still enjoyed the movie a lot the book had some great cameo scenes that I was pissed didn't make it in the film.

    I might go buy me a copy later, but same with Iron might spoil myself to much reading it, doubt it though.
