Huh. Words can't really express how I feel after reading that.

Whatever role he's in, Farrell always looks grubby and seedy to me, I couldn't buy him as Tony Stark. I also couldn't buy the idea that he was a genius, the suspension of disbelief would be too high for me.
Not like this then?

Nope, even then he looks less grubby and seedy than farrell.

It's a little disingenuous to say that Iron Man rejuvenated Downey, Jr.'s career. He got wide praise for his work in The Singing Detective in 2003 (really, he was the only thing about that movie that received any praise), and A Scanner Darkly, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and especially Zodiac had him at the point where he could pick and choose his roles, well before Iron Man. His Marvel work has definitely increased his profile somewhat (though I'd point more to getting an Oscar nomination for Tropic Thunder as being the high point), but his career was already back on track no later than 2006. It's not like Pulp Fiction rescuing John Travolta from being an obscure joke in 1994.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

^ He got praise for all of those movies, but he wasn't the sort of name to put bums on seats and that's the bottom (no pun intended) line in Hollywood. I yield to few in my love for Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang but he, Val Kilmer and Shane Black all got great acclaim for the role but little else. Black has made no movies since, while Kilmer is hardly a box office draw.

It's not true to say he could pick and choose his roles as a result - he had to audition for Iron Man and there were all sorts of insurance conditions arising from his drug history. No, he may not have been in the John Travolta career graveyard but nor was this a case of the studio chasing him for the role the way they chased Chris Evans.

Meanwhile RDJ has expressed his own views about remaining in the role:

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/168...ate-that.jhtml

"I would really hate for someone else to think they could step into my shoes. I wonder who's playing Tony Stark next.… I know things are looking like that they could go on for a long while. As usual in my book, it's all about quality control and delivering a product that you can have this kind of reaction to. If they keep doing that, maybe I'll keep showing up" says the actor.

I yield to few in my love for A Scanner Darkly, and RDJ was the best thing about that film. But it was a financial failure, partly because they just didn't get it in enough theaters ( for example, a grand total of 1 in the entire Philadelphia area, same thing in Vegas ).

Cosmic Book News reports that Rebecca Hall will be playing the role previously said to be played by Jessica Chastain.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

So, is Howard Stark the Felix Lighter of Marvel movies seeing as how a different actor has played each appearance of the character?

My inner pedant and Bond fan feels obliged to point out that it's Leiter but otherwise a nice comparison!

They haven't re-cast the character again, have they?

Really, since he's old in Iron Man 2, young in Captain America: The First Avenger, and barely seen in Iron Man, I'm not that bothered by the re-casting. Rhodes being played by two actors and Banner being re-cast, on the other hand...far more annoying.
