Favreau gives props to Firefly at Iron Man Comic-Con panel. The director discussed CGI that enhances stories rather than pulling the viewer out.

"Favreau said he's one of the toughest critics when it comes to CGI -- "It takes me out of the movie most of the time. I feel like I'm watching somebody play a video game" -- but he looks at projects like King Kong, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly where it's succesfully done."

That's awesome. I like Favreau, mostly for his writing (Swingers rocks), but I have faith that he'll make an entertaining Iron Man movie.
I thought the entire dinosaur chase scene in King Kong was not needed and looked rather fake so I'm not sure how that's a good example of the use of CGI.
Oooh, how did I not know Edgar Wright is directing Ant-Man? Not my favourite superhero that's for sure, but I can't wait to see what he does with it, especially as he's co-writing with Joe Cornish.
'Adam and Joe', Joe Cornish ? Very cool. Not heard a thing about it either but, Wright's protestations aside, it's sure to have some humour in it with those two writing (probably more straight humour rather than spoof humour). Worth checking out.

I agree about the dinosaur scene in King Kong derf, it's one of the (many) scenes the film could've done without, IMO, but I think in general the CGI Kong worked really well at conveying and evoking emotions (e.g. the frozen pond scene).

Never had much interest in Iron Man but i'll probably check the flick out unless rottentomatoes indicates otherwise.
