Here’s a new photo from the upcoming Iron Man flick coming this year. I wouldn’t go into the details of what the pic is about because, really, who would know, right? Let me just say that Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark is a brilliant casting choice. I can’t see anyone else playing the billionaire genius, Downey is that perfect. It’s up there with Patrick Stewart as Prof. X as the most flawlessly casted roles in superhero movies.
I’ve been hearing rumors that Iron Man and the upcoming Incredible Hulk flick will begin the “tie-in” move that all Marvel superhero movies will adopt in the future. This means that important cameos of other superheroes in each other’s movies will be instituted starting with the two films. Word has it that Downey may have filmed a small scene for the Hulk movie and that Edward Norton may have done the same. We’ll see in a few months if the rumors are true.
