Cuz I think bad move, but i'm trying to give him the chance to do it right.

#2 Posted by Poopman (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Nah.

#3 Posted by ScoodleDaddle (646 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he's an amazing actor, and he'll definitely be able to pull off the arrogant playboy bit.

#4 Posted by venomjr (243 posts) - - Show Bio

Yah until proven otherwise.

He's an awesome actore. So I think he'll do a great job, unless they make the movie cartoony, like the original batmans, then it'll suck.

Downey is an amazing actor, so I have total faith in him. I'm sure he'll nail the playboy parts and if alcoholism is a part of the plot (although I doubt it will be) he certainly will be able to do that well. I'm not the biggest Iron Man fan, but I'm still looking forward to the movie thanks to Downey being casted.

yeah, he kinda pissed me off in Civil War, but I'm looking foward to this movie. He's going to pull stark off well.

They couldn't pick anyone better. Robert Downey is practically life immitating art with this one. Plus he's an amazing actor. As long as they don't over-cgi the thing I can't see how they can fail.

Don't lump them all together. One and two were great says me! It wasn't until the introduction of body-suit nipples that they started to suck.

I was hoping a Hispanic would play Tony Stark, like Antonio Banderas.

Horatio Sanz would make a great Tony Stark.

Isn't he the fat guy from Saturday Night Live?

#18 Posted by G-Man (34037 posts) - - Show Bio

So it looks like Jeff Bridges has joined the cast (along with Terrance Howard and Gweneth Paltrow). Keeping my fingers crossed.

That would be the funniest comic movie ever. Imagine the suit they'd have to build for Horatio!

At first I thought not (had my hopes dashed in fact), but now I'm starting to think otherwise. He's a good actor and I think Favreau has a good feel as to what the film should be, surprisingly.

As for the film relying too much on CGI, I don't think that's going to happen. Favreau is trying to go as practically as possible (the Mach I or the original grey armor is already done...practically), as he feels that will keep the project grounded as close to realism as possible.

Nah

#23 Posted by scoobydiesel (6 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont see how he will screw up this role hes always a very good actor even in films that have sucked, Witch hopfully He will be great and the movie will too.

#24 Posted by GL Bertron (3708 posts) - - Show Bio

I agreed that Downey would be good for the role, especially if he gets to be in character during the Druken Tony scenes.

#25 Posted by Machival (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Whens the iron man movie come out? coz I reakon it would be worth a gander. All ive heard is rumours but no actual dates. I reakon that RDjr as stark is compleatly a subjective view point.. it all depends if he pulls the character off in the film... after its out THEN we can pass judgement.

#26 Posted by Machival (20 posts) - - Show Bio

haha i just got an image of Robert Downey Jr in the suits rocket boots... hahah why is THAT funny.

#31 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

sure. its not like he has to be superman or anything. he wears a helmet and all, so when he is doing his superhuman stuff, you dont see his face anyway.

#33 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah but his he tony stark buisness man?

#34 Posted by Apparition (11349 posts) - - Show Bio

as much as anyone else is. who would you rather have be tony?

#35 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

well, i don't know

chris reeves was a no name before was he was superman

they can do that iron man

#36 Posted by Apparition (11349 posts) - - Show Bio

they could, but why not use a great actor like downey? you dont like him or something?

#37 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

no,not saying i dont like him

but if you remember him as a ceriten character

thats what going to see

p.s i do like him

#38 Posted by Apparition (11349 posts) - - Show Bio

oh you think he's too well known to be ironman. i guess that could be true.

#39 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

Just like nick cage

that is what i have been saying

not to be a jerk

#40 Posted by Apparition (11349 posts) - - Show Bio

no i didnt get that was what you meant at first. i see exactly what youre saying. i dont think it will be that bad though. if he had been on tv or had played the same character in a whole bunch of movies than i'd agree. it would be hard to have one of the james bonds or charlie sheen (since he's in that two and a half men, though no one really watches that do they?) or someone you knew as one character was doing it then it would be hard to see them as tony instead of that character you usually see them as. but i dont think downey's like that.

#41 Posted by fear monger (1077 posts) - - Show Bio

good point

but thats how it is for me

topher grace in spider man 3, i kept thinkin that 70 show
