Robert Downey Jr. is ready for Shane Black to take on Iron Man 3
Posted by: Zack Bruce
When filming on THE AVENGERS comes to a close, Tony Stark will move on to the third chapter of the IRON MAN saga. This time a new leader will be giving directions on set, one that Robert Downey Jr. has worked with before– Shane Black. The two worked together on KISS KISS BANG BANG and of course, Downey helped Black get the job.
The anticipation for the third film revolves around what Black is going to do with this installment. Downey Jr. has this sort of zen attitude about the direction the story will go in, “My sense of it is that we need to leave it all on the field — whatever that means in the end. You can pick several different points of departure for that.” The tone of KISS KISS BANG BANG was more film noir but still put Downey in a character that still had an air of charisma. While the that film and IRON MAN are two completely different ballgames, Downey says that the meta-charm of KISS KISS will only come into play with the Marvel film if it feels right. There were no clue ins on the script as Black is still writing it. Downey and Black are going toe to toe, fighting over things, but coming together in a constructive way.
Downey knows it’s going to be great.
