What does RDJ think about Iron Man 2?

rdjOf all the things that actor Robert Downey, Jr. and MTV.com’s Josh Horowitz talked about in their recent interview, the quote that Ain’t It Cool News pulled out was this one:

MTV: You know that The Avengers movie is the one every comic book fan is salivating for.

Downey: That means if we don’t get it right, it’s really going to suck. It has to be the crowning blow of Marvel’s best and brightest, because it’s the hardest thing to get right. It’s tough to spin all the plates for one of these characters.

Whereas, I’m really more about this one:

I think it’s really important to keep up that idea of [Tony Stark’s] interfacing with inanimate objects. He’s at his greatest ease when he’s faced with machines. I would love to see a little shout-out to the fact that he’s an MIT graduate. I love the idea of him inviting over a bunch of super-nerds from MIT who wind up figuring into [Iron Man 3] a little bit.

Of course, all of this and everything else RDJ talked about it pure speculation because the script hasn’t even been completed yet, but maybe Jon Favreau’s the kind of director who takes in that kind of input from lead actors?

Check out the rest of the interview—including some dish on Sherlock Holmeshere.
