Viral: StarkIndustriesNow.com Has Launched

30 07 2009

Stark Industries Now

It is now more common than  not that a comic book/sci fi/action film will have a viral marketing scheme to go alongside it (see: The Dark Knight, District 9, TRON Legacy, etc). Now on that list, thanks to some digging from /Film‘s Peter Sciretta, includes Iron Man 2. Here are the details as to how the viral was launched at Comic-Con.

“You might not have noticed, but at Comic-Con Marvel launched a viral for Iron Man 2. For those of you who didn’t hit up the show floor, the Iron Man 2 section was set-up like Stark Industries, complete with “assistants” handing out business cards for those interested in a job. The cards directed con attendees to the website StarkIndustriesNow.com.”

Now on the front page is what appears to be a coffee-stained press release from Tony Stark reading “FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: WE NO LONGER MAKE WEAPONS! SINCERELY, Tony Stark (Pepper, pls. post exactly as is!)” There is also a link where you can join Stark Industries by filling out an application. Love to see that in this economic climate that one company is still hiring. As a writer on this site, I feel obligated to apply and let you all know what happens.

Iron-Man-Wolverine

Before The Dark Knight came out last summer, Warner Brothers did a brilliant thing: to explain what occurred between the first and second film, they made an anime cartoon that filled the gaps, giving loyal Batman fans something to wet their palate before the summer blockbuster. What they made, Batman: Gotham Knight, was fantastic in its structure, visuals and storytelling. The best part about it was that they got Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman from the groundbreaking 1990’s animated series, to provide Batman’s voice, which is nothing short of iconic.

Working off this same idea, Marvel has announced that they will be making Iron Man and Wolverine animes and have released two teaser trailers, which I will look at separately:

Comic-Con Overview

Comic Con

Unfortunately, because I live in New Jersey, making it out to San Diego for Comic Con wasn’t really an option, but it can no doubt be said that some of the coolest movie news comes out of Hall H in the span of a weekend than comes out in some months. That said, with the wrapping up of Comic Con yesterday, here are my favorite bits that came out over the course of the week.
