    I'm not seeing it. If Jason Momoa was that much of a female draw, his Conan the Barbarian would not have been a complete flop.

It's not enough for the actor to be sexy. The movie has to actually be good. If DC makes a good Aquaman film, the sexy actor will push the box office over the top.

    Well, let's not get carried away here. Iron Man is not a realistic superhero. There's a very good reason there are no super armors in the real world, and it's because it simply wouldn't protect your brain very well. Even the world's strongest helmet isn't going to prevent your brain from bouncing against your skull when you fall. That's why Wolverine's adamantium skull shouldn't help prevent him from getting a concussion. The Iron Man armor may prevent skin and bone breakage to an extent but it wouldn't prevent concussions. Now what would be within the realm of possibility is having Iron Man-like robots controlled remotely. They probably couldn't fly and/or land very well in a humanoid form and repulsor ray are of course made up, but well, drones are already a form of remote controlled robot that can fire missiles.

Good point. But until you raised the issue, it never occurred to me. I doubt it occurred to most movie-goers. I think most of us assume the armor has super-effective shock absorbing capabilities. Which doesn't mean it's fun for Tony to smack his head against a brick wall. He'll be momentarily stunned. But he won't get a concussion. The question is - are such super-effective shock absorbing capabilities plausible in the real world? The right answer may be NO - but like I said, this never occurred to me, and probably didn't occur to most movie-goers.
