I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Iron Man movie scheduled for release in May. It’s been talked about for a long, long time and I’m hoping it lives up to the hype. Jon Favreau is directing and Robert Downey Jr. is starring as Tony Stark. The trailer looks awesome, but don’t all trailers look awesome?
The choice of Downey is a risky one and one that didn’t seem right to me when I first heard the news. He’s not as dashing or action oriented as one might feel the role needs, but he’s got acting chops out the whazoo so it’ll be interesting to see his take on the character. I’m not 100% why they chose to portray the Mandarin as the villain in the first movie, and why Terrence Howard is cast as that villain but I’m reserving judgement until I see the film.
I’m really pulling for this project because I’ve always been a huge Iron Man fan.
