Read Between The Lines as Robert Downey Jr. Forgets Iron Man 2, Talks Iron Man 3

“I think that we have an opportunity with the third Iron Man to make the best of the three, and maybe one of the better superhero movies that’s ever been made. But I think we have to remember what made the first one good. It was very character-driven. It was very odd. It was kind of outrageous. And so I think we have to have the courage to trust that the audience is really kind of cool, and smart.” Ah yes, Robert Downey Jr., "cool audiences" -- the elusive fifth quadrant.

  • By the way, do you have any idea how disappointed I was when I was sitting in the theater and two hours later realized that The Iron Lady was not a spinoff film?

    I think Iron Man 2 has been unfairly maligned. It's certainly not on par with the original but Downey's performance pretty much adheres the movie together. The action sequence aren't as deftly handled but Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke bring well-rounded characters to the table and I actually like the asides with Nick Fury. Sure, it's out of place but it still works within the context of the overall story.
