Editorial: Who Can Replace Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man
I am The Comic Critic and I'm here to give my thoughts on Iron Man and who would be a perfect replacement in the future of his character.
Hello and I'm The Comic Critic,
Iron Man started the Marvel Universe craze in 2008, it is no wonder why helped with Robert Downey Jr's excellent charisma playing the character and feeling deeply in the role unlike any actor. It was as if he was born as Tony Stark himself but did not see his potential yet. But sadly all great things must come to an end. His time as Iron Man is almost over, Robert's contract for the role is not looking so well. Also not say Marvel has enough money alone to pay him to do the role again. Well this is just a thought if in a few years bound possibly after The Avengers 2 Marvel would look to find a replacement actor for the role. But who in the world would ever match his power performance or ever come close to doing so. Well I have carefully researched a list of 5 great actors who is perfect in doing so. Read on my fellow comic users!
5 - Ed Helms
Known for his work in The Office and the recently hit blockbuster series The Hangover, he is a great comedian and actor. While he does not exactly match Downey's charisma he does indeed match one similar to Tony Stark's personality.
4 - Matthew McConaughey
He is a great actor well known to both Drama,Action, and a few comedy films. I can safely say if they use him, it will be as good as Daniel Craig in 007. He also has the billionaire look going down for him. We can get a much more serious and deadly Iron Man from him.
3 - Benicio Del Toro
I know most of you will say using him is just jumping the gun based on his background. But why not a different Iron Man with an another ethnic background plate. He has started in a mix of action and comedy films I think he also has the talent to pull of this role easily. Only time would tell if he is willing to accept a role like this.
2 - Charlie Day
Here's an actor similar to my first choice Ed Helms. He comedic style comes very close to him. He may seem really young for the role of Iron Man but a few years down the line he would be perfect.
1 - Chris O' Donnell
You guys may be thinking, the former Robin actor? How would he be any good in this role. Just to say he has matured a lot since those movies and has gone off to star in better projects so far. He certainly does not have the Downey or Stark look but it's a fresh start. If they were looking for a new one why not a much different route instead of going the same path. He definitely has some hints of charisma and personality looking at his interviews so lets also give this choice a shot at it.
Well out of all these choices who would be the best one to replace Downey. If you have any other suggestion's post in the comments below and I'll check it out.
