Check out this fun Flash program sent over by the folks at Industrial Light & Magic. They’re in a tough Oscars race for effects this year (‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ are also up in the category), but even if they don’t win the trophy they say there was something special about working on ‘Iron Man.’

The storied shop doesn’t traditionally ‘audition’ for jobs, but they did work up spec presentations for ‘Iron Man’ because there were so many in-house fans of the armored Avenger and such enthusiasm for Jon Favreau’s plans to bring the hero to the screen.

‘This one was special for us all the way through,’ says ILM’s Bruce Holcomb, the model supervisor on the film. ‘There’s a lot of love for ‘Iron Man’ and what was accomplished ... and what will be accomplished.’ ‘Iron Man 2’ is due in theaters in 2010.
