Production Update: Iron Man II

Published on April 4th, 2009

Well today is Robert Downey Jr’s Birthday!!! So happy birthday to you Sir!!! Apparently as of late he has been going around doing press and talking a bit about Iron-man 2 which Downey says’s

“I think [Demon in a Bottle is] probably best saved, because it’s such its own storyline,” Downey  told MTV. “We’re going for the interim space [between the origin and Demon], which is more a look behind the mask of someone who says he’s Iron Man and what it really is to become a superhero.”

Downey also says’s

Essentially Iron Man 2 is about looking behind the armor, or the armature, of a superhero. It’s one thing to say you’re Iron Man, it’s another thing to be fully ready to do that.”

So looks like they are going to stretch out  he alcoholism a bit and we will probably get to see that in the 3rd or 4th film. I know I am completely ok with that as I don’t feel like that is the story to rush into for the follow up to a great origin movie. As always keep your eyes on the site and we will keep you up on all the news!!
