No classic rock, though.
The real question should be is IM3 better than the first IM?
Gwyneth Paltrow says there won't be any more Iron Man movies
^ I highly doubt that.
whoa, pooched that one.
RDJ and Paltrow may think their done but just watch Marvel release a press statement
Rob Lowe and Jessica Chastin cast as Tony Stark and Pepper Potts.
They could make worse choices.
Yeah, even if RDJ and Gwyneth Paltrow are done I don't see them ending the series, unless for ome reason 3 bombs, and I don't see that happening.
Gwyneth Paltrow named World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2013
They've already said that when RDJ hangs up his helmet, they'll re-cast in the vein of James Bond. No reboots. Though I don't envy the George Lazenby/ Roger Moore who tries to fill Downey's, er, boots.
Got tickets for Wednesday night. 2D, of course.
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.
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.
I started my re-watch today. Iron Man, Iron Man 2, "The Consultant" and Avengers.
RDJ is appearing on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE this Thursday night.
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).
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.
