Sean is on vacation, so I guess it’s my job to pick up the slack on the superhero movie news for a day or two. As i’m sure many of you have heard, the role of Iron Man has finally been officially filled. All of the Tom Cruise haters out there can breath a collective sigh of relief because it looks like Jon Favreau has chosen Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Starks. Interesting choice I suppose. Although it seems weird to me because earlier this summer Favreau stated that this film would not get into Starks alcoholism, focusing mainly on the creation of the Iron Man suit and the hero himself. This totally seems like a wasted opportunity, seeing as Downey Jr. has spent a great deal of time in rehab and could really bring that ‘method actor’ reality to Iron Man and his inner demons. I just hope there’s no musical segments with Tony Starks lip synching Elton John songs. What do you guys think? Yay or nay? Lame or awesome?» Related Link: Cinematical: Downey Jr. to Play Iron Man!?
