I liked Pleasantville also.

Maguire may not have been a complete unknown but he damn sure wasn't exactly known before SM.

All I hope at this point is that the John will change the villian and not be Tony's father in his storyline.

I like a lot of what he has to say about the grey armour and the direction the story is going to go but i think casting an unknown is a mistake as Iron Man is not very well known,think DD and GR.
I think Cruise is a great actor with a good variety of range but he is to old to commit to this type of project and i also think the same of Depp,i'd have liked a good solid well known actor with some mainstream awareness

Any idea on the budget yet ?

Which were mostly very widely seen (even if it was post-theatrical to varying degrees). Pleasantville and Ciderhouse were award-bait/fairly arty movies that together grossed about 100 million in US theaters.
OK-He'd done other movies, yes, but none that had made him a household name. And you're talking about 2 movies which had the combined total gross of what "Spider-Man" made in 3 days. He wasn't a total unknown but he was by no means a major star. He was 26, & had nowhere near the level of recognizability that Tom Cruise had at his age. I still know people who refer to him as "The boy who played Spider-Man".

Favreau really knows what he's doing, let alone knowing a lot about the character's history and how he's characterized within the comics. So far this adds to all the reports we've gotten about the progression of the film, and none of them have yet to be a disappointment.

The gray suit scenario, is a great way to start off. Considering it'll give the audience a proper introduction of the character, and why he's constantly building these iron like suits. Then after is when we'll see the modern look of the armor, which should appear nicely on screen. Not to mention the repulsor beams, I'm also hoping we'll get a lot of decent flight sequences of Iron Man soaring through the air.

I'm liking how Favreau really understands who the chracter is, that's always important for a director. Not to mention how he's already thinking ahead of himself with channeling the alcholism of Tony, in a possible sequel. As for the "unknown" part of his interview, if he feels like it's someone who can portray the character well enough, then I'll give it a chance. Even though there are plenty of actors out there, who could bring justice to this role. So far, everything about this film is off to a great start.

Also, it seems like we'll be getting both this film and the Batman sequel come 2008...

He either was or wasn't a "relative unknown", and I articulated pretty clearly that he wasn't.

Trying to argue he was because he "had nowhere near the level of recognizability that Tom Cruise had at his age" is like saying Napoleon was a relative historical footnote because he had nowhere near the level of known lands conquored at his age compared to Alexander the Great. Tom Cruise is the biggest, highest grossing movie star in the world, not the median known movie actor.

I could not find a single person who knew who Tobey was before "Spider-Man" came out. When I first learned he'd gotten the role I had to make an effort to put a face to the name. Not that many people saw "Cider House", "Wonder Boys" or "Ice Storm". These may have been successful in their own right but they weren't exactly blockbusters.

as always, i agree with you %100. Maybe Mr Cavisal (that guy who was in passion of the christ) would be a good match... or Collin Farrell maybe?

Budget will be up there with Hulk and Spidey IMO. Marvel have to know that IM done the right way would be a gold mine for them.

I like the fact that this Director is willing to talk to the Fans through myspace & hear & listen to their suggestions & ideas. This Movie already sounds promising. He made a myspace page just to be able to talk to the fans & let them share their ideas with him. I like this guy. I will be following this Movie with great interest

Caviezel would be a better choice. He was great in The Count of Monte Cristo, and even the character he played, Edmond Dantes/The Count, had a slight resemblence to that of Tony Stark. Not to mention the character was wealthy.

As always and again, I agree with you Batman. BTW yo, thanks for the help with that Jean Grey pic I was looking for.


And..........SWEET CHRISTMAS!!! This news is awesome, and the film is so going to kick loads of ass.

Ehhh. I love everything I am hearing but I dunno about the unknown starring part. It works with Routh because Superman is a character everyone knows. I think Iron Man should be a name actor.

I just hope we don't end up with another X-men 3, Hulk, or Daredevil.

Thats not a problem, Jon as all ready addressed this on his myspace Iron Man fourm, saying that the father vs. son theme was in the old thrown out script and they are going with a Technological Villian. No word on who that will be as yet, but, it will be from Iron Man's rogue gallery.
