Exactly, which is why none of the heroes will ever be killed. These films play it safe to an almost insulting degree.
I'm sorry...what?

It's insulting to not kill of the hero of any of the films in the franchise? You're gonna have to explain that one. This is a superhero story. The good guys win, the bad guys lose. That's the way it works. That's the way it has always worked. That's the way it will always work.
In "Watchmen" the bad guys win and that's one of the all time great superhero story. In "V for Vendetta", the hero V dies and it's debatable if anyone really wins in the end.

I've heard that Downey Jr's contract has an option for Avengers 2, but nevertheless, he will be signed. He is the most recognizable face and the centerpiece of what is currently the most successful movie franchise currently in production.

RDJ I think has expressed interest and willingness to continue playing Stark/Iron Man.

He clearly loves the role. It brought him back into the world.

His career was slowly on the rise around that time but Iron Man very much put him back on the map, center stage, and gave him more exposure than he's ever had before (in a positive light, that is.) Not to mention it being his first Blockbuster movie.

Really liked the trailer, can't wait for the movie. I've watched the Extremis motion comic, so I'm very curious to see how much of that story is in the movie.

Great videos! He is so awesome, and he really knows how to work a crowd. "How much do I love you? Question #2. How much do you love me?" And the little Iron Kids were soooo cute! I look forward to this movie and I hope it's really good.

Me too. I think it's the villain. He just reminds me of Bane.

He was also the only thing good about that movie, probably because he was the best actor of the lot.

I'm not a fan of super hero movies, however I've always enjoyed Iron Man, both in comics and the Downey movies. Don't know if it's something about the fact under the suit he's just a normal human being (I say normal lightly).

I really enjoyed Iron Man 1 but haven't seen 2 yet, is it any good?

Basically more of the same but bigger! The fights involving Iron Man leave you wanting more than what they give you.

-The fights last maybe 1 or 2 minutes top

-Pepper does something stupid near the end IMO

-The movie was more an advertisement for the avengers movie.

I never felt IM2 was bigger than IM1. It has a surprising lack of action, and is pretty heavy on characters talking about things instead of doing these things. "I privatized world peace." Care to show some of that? And it gets pretty ridiculous when Tony does alone in his basement in a few hours what thousands of people couldn't do in in institution like CERN for years with unlimited funding even if they wanted to.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

And built an armored flight suit with weapons and propitiatory software powered by a device capable of generating enormous levels of electricity -while also being 1000th the size of a "science project" back home inside of a few weeks- using nothing but parts out of some missiles. Once back home he was able to recreate this suit with vastly miniaturized components AND a system to put it on him all, apparently, without anyone knowing. Guess Pepper never wondered why those contractors were coming in and out of his basement to dig the hole for the suit-donning device.

The only problem I have with the creating the "Stark-inium" in his basement is not that he could do it, Stark had proven himself resourceful. But that he created the powerful laser/accelerator in his basement powered by his home electrical supply. Sure wouldn't want his electrical bill.
