Robert Downey Jr. Loves Playing Iron Man

Don’t pay attention to the rumors that Robert Downey Jr. is going to be re-cast as Iron Man. This is not some sort of James Bond character that has a Roger Moore waiting in the wings to take over.

Granted the actor is now 42 years old, but with the CGI doing the heavy lifting and RDJ still in love with the character, don’t expect to see anyone else donning the iron suit anytime soon.

He told MTV News recently:

…he wasn’t so thrilled about the idea of someone else playing Tony Stark. “I would really hate for someone else to think they could step into my shoes,” he said. An infamous jokester, he couldn’t help but ask, “I wonder who’s playing Tony Stark next. Is it you? Is that what you’re here to tell me?”

“I know things are looking like that they could go on for a long while,” Downey said. “As usual in my book, it’s all about quality control and delivering a product that you can have this kind of reaction to. If they keep doing that, maybe I’ll keep showing up.”

With filming of Iron Man 3 starting in a couple weeks with a release of next year, Iron Man looks to be in good hands. Popcorn Movies thinks Robert Downey Jr makes the perfect Tony Stark, leave the Iron Man to CGI.

It is obviosu how much he loves the character, as he told Movie Fanatic:

“I like that he didn’t really set out to do anything noble,” Downey said. “He’s in transition, so there’s something a little more Hans Solo than Luke (Skywalker) — also, the fact that he can pull off wearing a Black Sabbath T-shirt, for the better part of the film.”

He told MTV about Iron Man 3:

“‘Iron Man 3’ is really shaping up to be something special. We start in a couple weeks. I’m sure I’ll be leaking secrets to you as we move ahead.”

What secrets, you ask? Well, it was recently announced that “Iron Man 3” would be co-produced in China. As for whether any filming would take place in the East, Downey was less forthcoming. “I’d like to tell you all my secrets,” he said,” but I forget them.”

As long as he’s in it, the movie is sure to be a big hit!
