When I first saw the trailer for Iron Man, one of the things that struck me as being completely awesome was the similarity between the house Tony Stark had in the 1980's in the comic (when I was reading it as a boy) and what they portray in the film. It's taken me a while to get around to this, but I hope you enjoy these comparisons.
