Not sure. Thing is, Iron Man's best villain, and his arch-nemesis is The Mandarin. And well, we aren't going to see the Mandarin most likely.

Considering Mandarin doesn't seem like a favorite too Favreau, even though I'll agree with TheVileOne on the history both characters have with one another. He really is one of his best foes, perhaps if not in the this film, then a possible sequel should be where he debuts.

Crimson Dynamo
Titanium Man
Justin Hammer
Madame Masque

Those four are villains I could see Jon choosing, anyone but too have Stark face his own father. Madame Masque could be a type of love interest, and doesn't find out later in the film that she operates at night with a Mafia like organization. Or Justin Hammer could be Stark's industrialist rival, who like in the comics, creates a device which enables him to control Iron Man's armor. Both Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo could be villains which are created to go up against Iron Man as well.

Didn't Fav say in his last interview that he wanted a tech heavy villain for the movie ?

He did. Which means either Titanium Man or Crimson Dynamo would make good candidates, if of course that's who he has in mind. Or, he's probably considering creating his own villain for the film. Unless he does it right, I don't think it's necessary. Iron Man's rouges could be well on screen, again if it's done correctly. Though with everything he's said and has planned so far, I don't think the benefit of the doubt is that high.

What do you think?
Well I can't speak for hunter rider, but I for one think it's a great idea to feature Crimson Dynamo, Bats. Can any of you imagine how cool it'd be if the two fought in the air?

This of course is FANTASTIC news, JF is really the man for this job and I don't think anyone else would've been better. This film is going to so kick all kinds of ass, Marvel won't even know what's coming.

Tom Cruise as Ironman would be a COLOSSOL mistake. Not only does he bring unnecessary baggage but he'd want too much creative control as well as a % of the box office. Just say NO THANKS to that loon.

The only problem I have with that original article was the fact that the writer referred to the Daredevil movie as a dud. DD was a huge financial success as well as a quality action/adventure.

I vote for an altered Crimson Dynamo for the villain. Just the name "Titanium" Man fighting "Iron" Man sounds too childish.

Like I said in another thread just call Titanium Man the Titanium model and the same with Crimson Dynamo. And make it so its stolen technology and the thief is Justin Hammer.

Its great news, apparently, Jon Favreau was on Jim Kennel last night and he talked about the movie as well as the showing the drawing his kid drew, I didn't see it, wish I had.

um...how about because he has experience playing that kind of character, he has high box office draw, he's a good actor, and his performances are frequently if not usually kickass?

Personally, this is a role I can accept Tom Cruise playing. Baggage? Baggage is a good thing for Tony Stark, because he's always been a character with a lot of personal and emotional baggage.

There are alternatives. Realistic alternatives. Favreau already said he won't hired a guy that would eat his FX-laden budget. That alone should shatter your former dream and make you think of other potential actors.

Oh, and MI:3 is not the summer movie. Want a summer movie? Try X-Men 3. It's better than the sappy, it's supposed to be romantic but ultimately pointless movie.

Cruise also produces his movies, he would actually add more money

I don't understand people's anger with Tom Cruise. He's just another Hollywood wacko, who the fans need to seperate his excellent acting from his akward personal life.

I always thought Cruise would make a great Tony Stark. Look at his roles in Born on the 4th of July and The Last Samurai. But I agree that his price would eat up Favreau's FX budget. We'll be better off with a relative unknown, but up-and-comer.

That would be an opinion not a fact

The whole Cruise debate is pointless at this juncture b/c Favreau is going for an unknown
