Jon Favreau‘s Iron Man movie finally gets its star. One of the best actors today, Robert Downey Jr., is cast as Tony Stark. Here’s the skinny on the movie:
Downey will portray Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Using his intelligence and ingenuity, Stark instead builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. Upon his return to the U.S., he uncovers a plot with global implications and must don his armor and protect the world.
Perfect casting in a Marvel Comics movie. Finally. And if you think Robert Downey Jr. is a washed up actor… rent Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang this weekend.
