Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Honestly I don't see RDJ hanging up the helmet for a while. Sure they may go 'yeah we're done' but there's a dangling 'For now...'

Personally I wouldn't mind even if there weren't any more "Iron Man" movies, if Iron Man and Pepper show up in other Marvel movies. Sure there are plenty of Iron Man centric stories to tell but honestly I think at most there could be another trilogy before people people go "Yawn... Iron Man beating up another armored guy... again."

I think it's a better idea after IM3 to focus on building up the rest of the MCU. Like with Avengers, you got a little bit of everyone - save for Rhodey but - I think RDJ can fit in a few shorter things than more massive movies.

Of course, it depends on how big the truck of money they roll up to his house is. Granted he isn't getting any younger and eventually they'll have to go a bit younger - but RDJ is sorta Tony Stark at his core. Rob Lowe... maaaaaybe but I think people would go "Okay where's the REAL Tony Stark?"

Only thing I can think of that would let RDJ play Stark for a longer period of time, regardless how much he ages, just not have him get out of his armor. They can put in some Just for Men in his hair and mustache, make up and CGI out any wrinkles and just use the HUD for most of his facial scenes.

Hell for most of the Civil War and Secret Invasion arcs he hardly EVER got out of his armor.

Odd suggestion given that he's older than RDJ.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

In other news Iron Man 3 nearly made 200 million after the first weekend overseas and it hasn't even started up in the US.

I don't think it'll beat Avengers but i'm confident it will crack the 1 billion mark.

Isn't the time schedule booked solid until Avengers 2? Cap 2, Thor 2, Guardians, Dr. Strange, Ant Man + whatever other hero the deem fit to cram in.. seems pretty full until we see Avengers 2. I haven't seen IM3 yet so i can't comment on the story progression for Stark but Whedon is planning with with him for Avengers 2.

Guess we'll wait and see.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

really average flick with a weak last half hour, but better than IM2. i liked the attack on his house though, and the links to the avengers.

though for reference i hated both the avengers and IM2 (though liked IM1).

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

I won't be angry if RDJ decides to move on and take Iron Man with him. People forget that he's a great actor that can do more than play himself acting like a superhero. He can still grow as an actor and he probably wants the challenge right now. It's best to let him leave at a high point so he wants to come back for cameo's. As for The Avengers, since the roster evolves over time losing Iron Man isn't a huge hit. They need to develop Captain America and Thor and establish Hawkeye (why doesn't he have his own movie in pre-production) and Black Widow while introducing new heroes like Wonderman, Vision and Scarlet Witch.

While RDJ will always be knowm as IM to many fans, he certainly can't take the character with him. Disney/Marvel owns the character.

Wow. Very cool. RDJ, despite having a rocky past at times, is a class act at heart.

I saw it last night.

I had one big issue that keeps it a full letter grade down for me but it was a fun film all the same. I need to find the Grade/Discuss thread though.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Do you think the line by Pepper of "I see why you like the suits, what am I going to complain about now"[paraphrase, but close] could hint at Tony making her the exclusive suit we know from the comics. Her Rescue suit of armor?
The only contradiction to that was her seemingly sigh of relief as the 'Clean Slate' protocol was given.
