Robert Downey Jr. Talks IRON MAN 3 And The Success Of MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS
Talking to journalists at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Robert Downey Jr. has revealed a few new minor details as to what we should expect in the next highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie. A transcription of the interview has been provided below, although it's well worth fast forwarding to the 1:20 mark when Downey's Due Date co-star Zach Galifianakis crashes the chat with his own question for the actor. Check it out below and be sure to sound off with your thoughts on these comments in the usual place.
Talking at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, Robert Downey Jr. talks about meeting the fans, the tone of Iron Man 3 ("We're not as serious as The Dark Knight..."), the success of The Avengers and his plans to do a huge stunt in the highly anticipated threequel.
"I just like hanging out with the people; they kind of instil me. I feel like I'm at a filling station getting all kind of juice from the fans and then I'm gonna go and put that to use in the second half of the shoot."
"We're not as serious as The Dark Knight, but Tony definitely has, and always has historically in the comic books even more so, his inner demons. We did a little of that in Iron Man 2, but if you think about someone who saw the skies open up and came through a wormhole and fought off alien species, suffice to say he's a little rattled."
"Well, here's my problem. Every time one of my movies comes out, I think it's going to be the #3 biggest movie of all-time. And so, it's really weird, it's like I cried wolf and one actually showed up this time!"
"I dunno, I just said, 'While I'm still physically able, I'd like to leave it all on the field and I would like there to be ten moments where people wonder how I was stupid enough to actually do that stunt.' Most of all me."
