British TV Pits Iron Man Against Hulk

The British daytime TV schedules are always full of movies in the post Christmas-post New Year slots before people go back to work and the schools start up again.

Well, later today we see a curious conjuncture of schedules as two of Britain's main commercial channels go head to head. ITV has Incredibnle Hulk at 5pm while Channel 4 shows Iron Man at 5.40pm.

Weirdly of course Robert Downey Jr shows up as Tony Stark towards the end of Hulk. Almost a kind of Jim Bowen "Look what you could have won" moment, if you'd watched the other side.
