Re: Is Robert Downey Jr. a good choice?
I hadn't thought too deeply about casting for Iron Man, but I was surprised by Favreau's choice of Downey Jr. Wasn't sure what to think at first, but RDJ is, without doubt, a fine actor and has the chops to pull off whatever he's given to work with. Tony Stark's physical appearance isn't quite as important as, say, Bruce Wayne's or Clark Kent's due to their images being more iconic. But RDJ is close enough to comic book renderings of Tony Stark to be acceptable to fans and general audiences. Can't wait!!
