stoli n coke: Flint Ironstag: NeoCortex42: Electromax: I wonder how long RDJ will keep at it. He seems to really embrace what Iron Man has done for him (unsurprisingly) and Iron Man 3 is looking pretty good IMO. Avengers 2 seems a given at least, but beyond that? Appearing in GotG (even a cameo), Iron Man 4, Avengers 3, etc?

He can't do it forever (although I'd love him to just be in like 10 of these things) but those are gonna be some tough boots to fill.

I'd rather the movie franchise just ends when he walks away from it.  Marvel has plenty of other characters they can base films around.  I'm sure RDJ would still be open to the occasional cameo.  As perfect as the casting of him was for Iron Man, Marvel would do well to allow him to be the only Iron Man, at least for quite a long time.

I never read comics but the vague impression I have of Stark from the comics was that he was actually 'old', like well into his fifties. Maybe it was because I was young at the time and every adult was 'old'. If Arnie could make T3 at 55 then RDJ, who is 47 now, could easily carry on for ten years. Longer even since he isn't playing a robot who doesn't age.

/My memory of the comics was that he had to wear the whole chest section of the Iron Man suit all the time, even under his clothes. Even as a kid I thought there was no way you'd be able to get away with that. No way your jacket would ever hang right, and what if someone patted you on the back?

That's good in theory, but Arnold took a lot better care of himself than RDJ, so it's not a surprise he can still do physical roles into his sixties.

Downey is in decent shape now, but in a few years, those 2 and a half decades of substance abuse will catch up to him physically.


Arnold did his share of substance abusing.

I don't know what an Orion Slave Girl is doing in this thread.

Do you want me to turn in my cards, or is it a troll? You can't have it both ways, mr. picky pants.

Flint Ironstag: well into his fifties.


 Currently Stark is in his 30s.  Retcons and abandoned history and sech.

The character of Stark did a whole lot of drinking and stuff, so it wouldn't be wrong for an older Stark to be a bit flabby and out of shape. Even TDK made a big deal of how old and decrepit Wayne had got and that he relied on the suit to keep him working.
The Terminator was supposed to be a robot. It shouldn't have aged at all.

Not even close to the amount Downey was doing. There's a reason a lot of people didn't think he'd make it to 40,

The Iron Man novel that someone bought me put Tony Stark in his early 20's.  But it's hard to have someone that young have a father who fought in WWII now.

Also, the book had no arc reactor, and he plugged himself into wall outlets from time to time.  The shrapnel in his chest started to hurt if his batteries got too low.
