Oh, he'll be game. Downey's no dummy. When he signed on to do the first movie, he had it put into his contract that he gets a piece of the backend of any movie where he appears as Iron Man. Reason being, he knew at least one Avengers flick was en route, and that it was gonna be huge.

As a result of that, estimates are that he made upwards of $50 million off of the first Avengers movie. So he'd have to be a giant moron to do anything to screw up a payday like that. And he obviously isn't, since he saw it coming years ago.

I'm pretty sure I just came twice during that trailer.

/Possibly even a third time at the end

MaxxLarge: So he'd have to be a giant moron to do anything to screw up a payday like that.


Actors are odd creatures and logic doesn't always work well with them.  I'm sure he's locked up through Avengers 2, so one more fat pay yet to come, but by then, he'll certainly have enough money so it won't be a big motivator.  He's a very serious actor and the role, script, director, etc. would mean more by the time IM4 gets serious about casting and contracts.  Marvel will move with a new actor if need be.

bighairyguy: Marvel will move with a new actor if need be.


Which would be complete suicide, and Marvel surely knows it. There hasn't been a more widely-agreed-upon perfect matching of character and actor in a very long time. Audiences AND critics love him in that role, and he makes them obscene amounts of money.

Long story short: If Downey asks for a contract extension that includes hot-and-cold running hookers and blow in his trailer...Then Disney is gonna suck it up, and start pricing it out.

Start pricing? I would be surprised if that isn't already worked out.
For that matter, I would not be surprised if they are watching/managing their "talents'" lives the way Hollywood used to do, back in the day.

Well he's sober nowadays and I think that achievement should be acknowledged. Just more money for the hookers.

Nice trailer. Crappy poster though. Tell the interns to step away from the Photoshop.

Yup.  Tony can slave control his other suits while he's wearing one.  There have been several times in the comics when he's needed backup and he calls his old suits into action.

What makes Marvel's Phase 1/2/.../n plan so different from anything else is the long-term vision / planning / integration.  They might not all be 4-star gems, but there won't any contractual obligation or milking the franchise movies either.  Each movie will have it's own story to tell plus will contribute to the larger Marvel Universe, and will be manned with top notch people on both sides of the camera.  This is candyland for RDJ, the actor so I'm sure he'll stick around until it's time to pass the torch.

The Mandarin has long been obsessed with Iron Man's suits so he's in the game too.  The one thing they didn't show in the trailer was why they needed dozens of Iron Man suits.  I'm guessing it's to battle a comparable number of Mandarin-sourced suits piloted by Extremis-powered humans.

I read somewhere that a big reason they were doing Extremis was so that they wouldn't have a Tony-fights-a-guy-in-a-suit climax again

Not anytime soon.  If RDJ wants to walk away from Iron Man, Marvel would probably be better off just offering him the occasional cameo and letting the character rest for a while.  There's plenty of Marvel characters due for a film treatment before they need to start rebooting.  Like Squirrel Girl.

I wonder if Captain America 3 and/or Avengers 3 will be based on Civil War?  At least it would give them an excuse to have the heroes all kicking the crap out of each other.

I love RDJ in that role, but 2 was a steaming pile filled to the brim with plot holes and other stupid ideas. The entire time, I'm basically yelling at them to "farking fly out of range of his friggin' whips and SHOOT HIM YOU IDIOT."
 
2013-03-05 03:53:58 PM
So far so good. Also, some press got to watch about 20 minutes or so footage, mainly the big blow up the mansion scene. Interesting spoiler in that one, so read at your own risk (IGN I think). And yes, they are plotting, building, and unifying all of these films together like comic books. Iron Man books/films are sci-fi action adventure pieces w/ a lot of character analysis of Tony Stark, part time alcoholic. Captain America books can either be total 40's/50's pulp action or Cold War action thrillers. Apparently Captain America 2 is styled after 1970's gritty spy thrillers. Thor is high fantasy epic. Hulk is the hardest one b/c the books have gone all over the place, the character has gone all over the place, and sometimes two completely opposite approaches have been great. Personally, Planet Hulk would be awesome, but man would it be tough to pull off on the big screen.

I really liked Thor.  There were a few hokey moments, but that happens in (comic) movies.  Thor 2 sounds like it's going to be pretty badass too.  Captain America wasn't going to be awesome, but it told a good story, established the character, and fed plenty into the larger Marvel Universe.  Cap 2 is looking to be more interesting with the Winter Soldier storyline and the introduction of some new Marvel characters.  Quite a few scenes in Avengers gave hints as to where he's going personally.  Exciting times!

Mickey Rourke phoned it in. Whether that was b/c the writing/directing screwed up by not putting him in the ensemble, or Mickey Rourke was acting like a giant douche (which he is known to do frequently) can't say. But he was a real let-down. I think they went after the hot name w/o doing enough chemistry/pairing together. Also, the character as a whole was kind of weak. But the Hammer Drones looked cool. That fight at the end (before Whiplash) was bad ass.

I disagree, I found Iron man much more re-watchable. I deleted Thor after one viewing. The whole story just seemed so stupidly contrived; also the love story.  But, I suppose we are entitled to our opinions.

That's the trouble with movie trailers, it always has been. Unfortunately we live in an age where too much info is available before we can even watch a show/movie and we spoil it for ourselves.

Mugato: Wayne 985: Iron Man is just not that great a character. We already have 4 movies with him; it's enough.

I think he is a great character as far as comic book characters go but I also think they're going to milk the fark out of all this. I mean they signed that one dude for SIX Hulk movies.


Huh?

Err...I didn't read all of Uchiha's post but I rate Captain America over Thor and Avengers.
IMHO Captain was a better screenplay, too much reliance on FX eye-candy in the others.

Only a small portion of it was damaged during the fight between Rhodes and Stark.  Also, I'm a bit surprised that his mansion doesn't have counter measures against a missile strike.  You'd figure that he would have repulsor turrets or something to blast those things out of the air.

You should have.  It had a sweet scene involving Air Force one being attacked and Stark coming to the rescue, the Hulk Buster armor from the comics, Rhodes as Iron Patriot, both he and Stark and an army of Iron Man suits facing off against what's probably an army of Mandarin-led soldiers in their own Iron Man suits in what's clearly the climax of the film.

bighairyguy: Slives: Hmm, a whole squad of Ironmen?
Wonder how they will explain it, considering that Tony should be about the only one able to create the suits.

The Mandarin has long been obsessed with Iron Man's suits so he's in the game too.  The one thing they didn't show in the trailer was why they needed dozens of Iron Man suits.  I'm guessing it's to battle a comparable number of Mandarin-sourced suits piloted by Extremis-powered humans.


1) Tony's been obsessively building suits for every occasion since the incident in the Avengers. They're all controlled by him at once with his mind via Extremis technology he invented.

2) Apparently they didn't want to do another villain with a power suit of his own. Rumor is the Mandarin has developed his own version of the super soldier serum. Whatever it is makes the person have the maximum amount of speed, strength and durability the human body could possibly possess.

Umm...Unless that's an alternate time-line thing, Potts never had a suit named "Iron Maiden".  She DOES have that suit, and is still using it in the comics as far as I know, but she dubbed it "Rescue" since it wasn't a combat suit, it was just outfitted with an insane amount of repulsor tech so that she could help contain/stop disasters and get people out of danger as a first responder.

Really?  With absolutely no context, you think it felt a little forced?  If they're going to be keeping the Hammer family involved with the cinematic universe, I wouldn't be surprised if that situation with all the Iron Men was how Tony responded to either A) This movie's equivalent of the Detroit Steel Corps. or B) The result of all those fine young fellows being strapped into the experimental apparatus' that I'm sure is in no way involved with Extremis.  You know.  The virus that, once applied to an untrained piece of shiat, allowed him to almost murder Iron Man without breaking a sweat?

/I'm not saying you're wrong about the action figures, I just severely doubt they said "We need about 53 more toys to sell at Christmas!  We need Tony to have an Iron Man army in the movie!"

Iron Man 2 wasn't as bad as most people say it was, but the film was a crowded mess with no real purpose. That puts it right in line with mainstream action films.

The Dark Knight was also a bit of a mess, but not so much so as  The Dark Knight Rises, which was a complete and utter mess. Nothing which happened in it made any sense,  especially the action sequences, which were blocked worse than your average Nolan action sequence (and the man can't direct an action sequence to save his life).

Nolan really needs to stick with his artsier films-  Memento and  The Prestige were far better films than his batman flicks.

The Dark Knight was also a bit of a mess, but not so much so as  The Dark Knight Rises, which was a complete and utter mess. Nothing which happened in it made any sense,  especially the action sequences, which were blocked worse than your average Nolan action sequence (and the man can't direct an action sequence to save his life).

Nolan really needs to stick with his artsier films-  Memento and  The Prestige were far better films than his batman flicks.


What helped save The Dark Knight over Rises was Heath Ledger's Joker. Most of his actions made no sense and relied heavily upon coincidence, but he was so damn entertaining to watch, you never really cared.

I'm super stoked for IM3, if anything else, because the director is Shane Black and the last time he and RDJ collaborated, they gave us this:

Rev. Skarekroe: Alphax: Just a thought, since I'm having trouble sleeping: do you suppose 'Ten rings' has anything to do with the ones on Mandarian's fingers?

It absolutely does.
In the comics they're magic/alien rings that shoot laserbolts and stuff.  I figure in the films they'll just be trophies of conquered enemies.


In Iron Man: Armored Adventures (I think it's called, anyway it's animated and about a teenage Tony Stark and used to be on Netflix), I learned about the Mandarin and the rings. It's not a bad show, my kids used to watch it. I don't know if it ties in well with the real story or anything though.

Friend_Computer: WhippingBoy: Uchiha_Cycliste: WhippingBoy: CarnySaur: I hope they replace Tony Stark with a teenage version like they did in the comics a while back.  Maybe they could use the kid who played Freddy on iCarly.

Or a woman. Like they did with Watson on Elementary. That always works and shows people how open minded you are.

They could call it "Iron-Man Woman"

she could be the iron female man!
Or the Iron Monger-ess!

And they should get that actress who starred in "Precious" for the role of Anthia Stark. And Adam Sandler as Jughead Jones.

Marvel's already taken care of it.  Potts gets a suit named Iron Maiden.

Yeah a bit, but then the Armor Wars was a pretty major story back in the day. People loooved swiping Stark's tech back then. Hell, the red white and blue armor Rhodey's wearing in this one was from when Norman Osborn got his company and decided he really wanted to be a dick.

Mentalpatient87: LeafyGreens: Iron Man 2 wasn't a good movie. I realize the is the same site that lionizes The Dark Knight, but there it is.

Do some reading, this is the same site that agrees with your assessment, Mr Rebel.


I hadn't known this, but I also really disliked that movie.  I recently watched it again and actually paid attention this time because when I first watched it I didn't quite focus on it and thus didn't know why I disliked it.

And the answer is simple: Tony Stark is completely on the wrong side of everything in Iron Man 2.  The Russian guy has a quite legitimate beef with him, the government is actually right in their stance on his technology, and he imposes terribly on his two friends (paltrow and don cheadle).  Now, this can all be okay in a movie when the main character ends up learning his lesson and is redeemed in the end.  In fact, this is almost the exact plot of the first movie!  But Iron Man 2 not only does not give Tony Stark the redeeming moment, it doesn't even acknowledge that he needs one.  Instead all of his selfishness and ignorance is celebrated.  I suspect that Favreau, whom I otherwise enjoy, was the one who took a plot meant to parallel the first movie and completely misinterpreted it into the garbage we got.

That's pretty much an alternate universe version of the story.  Same names and a lot of the same powers, but lots and lots of details (particularly ages) different.

Great_Milenko: Trocadero:  Personally, Planet Hulk would be awesome, but man would it be tough to pull off on the big screen.

Well, the Avengers movies are going to be space-based to a large extent.  Avengers 2 could feature Hulk being sent off to Sakaar.  Planet Hulk could be made as a follow-up to fill the space between Avengers 2 & 3.

Hopefully, they won't feel the need to have every Avenger featured in his own movie in between every Avengers flick. I'd rather wait and get something special from each character.


Avengers 2: Thanos storyline, whatever, doesn't matter because it'll be awesome.  Most awesome part of it will be the Hulk going completely mad, perhaps influenced by the Mind Gem or some such, and everyone, EVERYONE getting their asses handed to them in a big way.

Of course, after it's all said and done, one of the last scenes of the movie has Stark and Fury and America sitting at a table staring at each other for a minute before Fury goes "Okay, so we found this planet a long way off...And we got this ship designed just for him.."

Planet Hulk movie happens(no spoilers there), and then Avengers 3 is basically the World War Hulk storyline, modified to fit the Avengers instead of the Illuminati.

You may not have been paying close enough attention, then.  You're quite right about Stark's flaws in IM2, with how he overreacts to Potts and Rhodes, but he makes amends to both by the end of the movie.

The points about Vanko and the government were spot on, though, to a degree.  The government was being stupid, demanding the armor, but they were right to do so.  Vanko, on the other hand, was outrageously furious at Stark for something that happened between their fathers.  If Vanko had shown up at Stark's door, blueprints in hand and demanded an explanation...well...that wouldn't have made a very good movie, now would it.

Not that I'm trying to imply that they put this kind of forethought into how the characters tie-in to the Avengers, but if Stark in IM2 never really redeems himself, it could explain why Cap is such a hardass towards him.  On top of that, Iron Man ends up having his "redeeming hero" moment by nuking the Chitauri Orphanage.

Honestly, though, I agree with you.  I still like the movie, but those points did kind of bother me.  It almost seemed like the big take-away from Iron Man 2 was "At lease he only blew up his own shiat this time."

Say what you will about Micheal Cera, but keep in mind the screenplay for the movie was written before Book 4 or anything after it were even written, and I'm not sure three was out on shelves, though it was finished. I enjoyed the movie, it was definitely different, but still good. The only complaint I have with it is how close they were to ending up with Scott going with Knives at the end, to the point where that ending is filmed and on the DVD in the extras. You know, after the first chunk of the movie is dedicated to pointing out how being with her makes him a creep, nevermind it ignores what the point of that relationship was.

I disagree, I found Iron man much more re-watchable. I deleted Thor after one viewing. The whole story just seemed so stupidly contrived; also the love story.  But, I suppose we are entitled to our opinions.


How do you feel about Thor as a character? As a fan of him in the comics (especially the Simonson run) I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

The actress who plays Knives was 25 during filming and she had great chemistry with Cera. I imagine if they'd gone with the Knives ending they could have de-aged Cera's character to 21 or so (about the youngest he could pass for), so dating a high school senior isn't quite as creepy.

Infernalist: If Vanko had shown up at Stark's door, blueprints in hand and demanded an explanation...well...that wouldn't have made a very good movie, now would it.


Actually, that would have made a much better movie. Vanko shows up, demands an explanation. Stark gives him one, and tries to make amends. They become super-scientist bros. But Rockwell's character is there, whispering into Vanko's ear. He keeps making Vanko think that Stark is giving him short shrift. That Tony's just using him, like Howard used Vanko's father. An overheard conversation between Stark and Pepper ends up supporting this view.

All of the sudden, Vanko has an interesting character arc, and so does Tony.

Since Rockwell's character is really the antagonist, you can keep many of the set pieces in place, but have more nameless goons. Instead of Whiplash at Monaco, it could just be some idiot that Rockwell put up to it. Rockwell can be building knock off power-suits by cobbling together what he's learned from Stark and Vanko with his own genius.

Seriously, I should just be a script consultant for every movie.

I'll bet you money that a major plot point of IM3 is the inability of the US government to secure and control the Iron Man technology.  They already demonstrated that Tony was right to deny the government the armor in IM2 -- the very first thing Uncle Sam does is hand the armor over to Justin Hammer!

If Vanko had simply approached Stark and said "Look, my dad helped your dad invent this power source that has made you a trillionaire, and all my dad got for it was the opportunity to die in a gulag.  I'm farking pissed."  Tony would have wrote him a check for a billion dollars, created a foundation in his father's name, and given the guy his own private research facility on the Stark campus.  We know that because we know that Tony Stark is fundamentally a good guy who wants to do the right thing.  But Vanko doesn't even try to dialogue with Stark, he just decides to engage in some seriously disproportionate retribution.  This is what flips him from being a sympathetic character to a villain.

A lot of people knock Mickey Rouke's performance in that movie, but I think he was really great.  He's easily my favorite part of the movie.  Vanko is motivated by a deep, smoldering rage, but he's also a really smart guy.  Like crazy, Tony Stark smart.  He's an evil Tony Stark, with none of Stark's advantages.   He's pretty laid back, and mostly smirks at a world that is so much dumber than him -- his interactions with Hammer are priceless, and Rouke does such a great job of conveying his complete and utter disdain for Hammer with his body language and his eyes.  Even when he fights Stark, he's still smirking -- the rage and hatred drive him to confront Tony in a fight, but he's too cool and too in love with his own cleverness to show his anger.  So he just smirks to himself as he tears Stark apart.

I really liked IM2, but I understand why it didn't go over well.  It's clunky -- shoehorning Black Widow's debut into the movie was a bad idea, and detracted from the ending.  The whole climax and conclusion would have been more satisfying if Tony had to fight Vanko on two fronts -- both physically, and in cyberspace, at the same time.  Imagine if Black Widow hadn't been involved at all, and instead Pepper and Happy had broken into Hammer Industries, opened a "backdoor" for Tony to access the system, and Tony had to hack his way through Vanko's software while trying to fight off War Machine, the drones and Vanko's Titanium Man homage.

Yeah, great movie.  I misread the article, thought the writer was implying that Kilmer was in IM3, which didn't make sense.


It was poorly written then because I thought the same thing. I was looking for Val in IM3 LOL
