Robert Downey, Jr. ready for 'Iron Man 3' with new director Shane Black
He's wrapped most of his principal photography for "The Avengers," but it appears Robert Downey, Jr. isn't burning out on playing Tony Stark, aka Iron Man anytime soon. Speaking to the LA Times this past week, Downey, Jr. discussed his enthusiasm about moving forward with "Iron Man 3" under the direction of his "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" collaborator Shane Black.
Black, who is best known for writing the screenplay for "Lethal Weapon" when he was just 23, is replacing Jon Favreau who helmed the first two "Iron Man" films.
“[Black] is more than the sum of his parts and he’s also kind of been a sleeper for a long time,” Downey told the paper. “We’re not talking much about [the script] right now because Shane is off writing and we talked before that and when we are talking again the talking is going to be over pretty quick. It’s kind of like we’re fighting on the same side and at the same time we’re circling each other, so it’s all great. It should be great.”
Downey, Jr. also admitted that a lot of things worked in "Iron Man 2," but a lot of things didn't. For more on the interview, click here.
