'Iron Baby' rules! A parody that's awesomely adorable

Posted on

Check out Patrick Boivin’s delectable Iron Man send-up, starring his daughter Marguerite as a gurgling infant superhero, and you’ll see that it’s awesomely cute and clever and adorable, not to mention a lot shorter than Iron Man 2. (I especially liked the baby-in-the-iron-mask POV shot and the Tarantinoid Bugs Bunnies with machine guns.) But this one-minute-long satire is also, in its way, an astounding testament to what can now be done at home with relatively no-budget hand- and computer-crafted effects. Who needs Hollywood? Iron Baby rules!
