Robert Downey Jr. has committed to play Tony "Iron Man" Stark for two more feature films, specifically The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3. What's not mentioned in Marvel's press release—and is sure to be a matter of speculation until someone fesses up—is just how much Downey commanded to step back into that cumbersome suit.
You know what the real problem is with 8-bit videos like this? They always make me wish that the "game" were something that I could actually purchase and play. There are instances where enough people are inspired that the game actually does becomes a reality, but in the case of the Iron Man game you see above I think we'll also just have to be satisfied with the idea.
There’s no way that they’d willingly kill off the stream of success by ending the Iron Man franchise, especially while Robert Downey Jr. is still willing to get back into the suit for further adventures. Iron Man 4 is a lock...Or is it?
Who knew that superheroes could be really, really funny? Sure, it seems totally plausible now, in this post-Avengers world, but when Iron Man emerged in 2008-- the same summer that Batman went darker than ever in The Dark Knight-- Tony Stark and his endless arsenal of quips seemed like a revelation. By casting the quick-witted Robert Downey Jr. and giving him a lot of good lines, Marvel created the energetic superhero that we didn't really even know we needed
While we don’t notice Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) as the helicopters are waging war on Iron Man’s California headquarters, we do see Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) trying to get yet another prototype armor up and running, mustering just enough power to launch a vehicle at a threatening chopper. It looks as bad ass as it sounds.
Threadless, the online T-shirt website, has opened up a new collection that celebrates all things Iron Man just in time for the new movie. There are 22 designs in total, all priced at $23.50 before tax and shipping, and there are some pretty badass designs on display from some really cool artists.
The photo of the new armor was shared on Facebook, where we learn that the Mark 35 suit is actually used by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) as a “Disaster Rescue Suit” … which probably means that he has to use it often. I mean, you saw the latest trailers, right? His entire Malibu mansion gets blasted off its California perch.
That’s Whedon’s self-deprecating humor, putting more pressure on himself to live up to not only Iron Man 3 (and the standalone Thor and Captain America sequels) but also the explosive finale of his own record-breaking Avengers, which raised the bar on the modern superhero blockbuster.
Howard claims Cheadle was always the studio's first choice, so when it came time to cast Iron Man 2, they basically offered Howard a deal he could refuse. Paid $4.5 million for the first film, his contract suggested he'd get $8 for a sequel. However, he explains, “The second time, [the studio] said, 'We think the movie will be successful with or without you. So, instead of the $8m that we said we were gonna' pay you, we're going to let you come back for a million dollars.'"
Iron Man is not going to die in the next movie. Not only will he appear in Avengers 2, he’ll emerge from the final credits and give Robert Downey Jr the opportunity to trot him out once, twice or several times more. Then again, if RDJ decides he’s got more than enough money in the bank and there are better opportunities elsewhere, the series can end here and now without any awkwardness.
Iron Man might transition to Iron MEN if the final poster for Shane Black’s upcoming sequel is any indication. The one-sheet has been shared on Yahoo Movies, with the promise of a final trailer dropping on Tuesday, March 5. Here’s the latest, stunning image of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) readying for battle. And this time, he’s not so alone.
Over the last two weeks, Iron Man fans have been treated to sporadic reveals of its cast in a series of character posters, with the sitting menace of Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin nearly outshining Don Cheadle’s pensive stare as the Iron Patriot. It was only a matter of time before we got to see Pepper Potts and the Man himself in their own posters, also staring pensively
I don't mean to crush anybody's dreams, but the truth of the matter is that we as a society are still pretty far away from seeing anything quite like the armor seen in Marvel Studios' Iron Man movies. Some of the tech does exist in less evolved forms - like exoskeleton armor, for example - most of it is completely non-existent, from the suit's ability to fly to the arc reactor that powers the whole thing.
Zarick explains that his girlfriend loves comics, and Iron Man in particular. Moreover, she'd taken to calling Zarick "Tony Stark" because of his love of inventing. So, when it came to his proposal, this crafty romantic gave his comic-lovin' gal his heart in the form of an arc reactor made special for the occasion, complete with a special mechanized compartment that extends the ring!
The snapshot was shared via THR, which can’t really confirm whether it’s part of the sequel or just a random photograph from the movie’s set. All the trade can say is that the actor is “explaining about Beijing life” to Iron Man, who recently has just “descended to Yongdingmen,” the gate at the southern edge of the Chinese city.
