Robert Downey Jr. talks Iron Man, Avengers at Hero Complex


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Robert Downey Jr. made a surprise appearance at the Hero Complex Film Festival on Sunday to join his “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau and discuss that franchise, the “Avengers” film (which he’s currently shooting in New Mexico), and the way Marvel is handling this ever-expanding universe.

A lot of their discussion centered around Favreau’s involvement in a third “Iron Man,” which will be directed by “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” helmer Shane Black.

“I love the franchise and I’m a big fan of Shane’s as well, so hopefully I can be helpful because I want to see this thing grow and transform,” Favreau said. “And actually, when it finally landed on Shane, it was like, ‘All right, that’s gonna be something interesting.’ Especially because it’s gonna be so difficult for whoever does that one because although it’s ‘Iron Man 3,’ the whole ‘Avengers’ thing.

“I guess in comics you can say that it’s an individual storyline and you can break it off into a group,” Favreau continued. “But in movies, it’s hard not to take into consideration what just happened. What are you gonna say? ‘They all just lost their cell phones and you can’t get help?’ So it’s going to take a lot of ingenuity to make it make sense to a mainstream film audience as well as a comic book audience.”

When asked how the “Avengers” shoot was going, including the challenge of getting so many characters on the same page, Downey joked, “I usually start off the morning by refusing to do what I’ve signed on to do. Anyway, I just went, ‘How are you going to put all of us clowns together? He’s wearing a suit, he’s all jacked up, he’s so-and-so and, ahh, poor Mark Ruffalo … what’s he gonna … do to us?’ And we’re about 6 weeks in and I gotta say Joss Whedon is nailing it. He’s so smart and he’s so good and it’s going to be great. I can’t believe I just said it, I never could have believed it. It’s going to be great.”
