    I like Johnny Depp,but I agree, he does choose quirky roles. Except for Pirates of the Caribbean he's not known for doing mainstream Hollywood films,he's a indie film mainstay for the most part,but he would bring a interesting dimison to the character.
    As for a director,one possible guy who could do a good job,Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek First Contact),he did a great job directing that film which was full of special affects and was a big hit for Paramount.

    I think Michael White would be better for the Black Panther movie. I didn't like his acting in Spawn..... Hmmmm, yeah, you're right, Rhodes (LOL).

    Naah! Sutherland's too bald now. A decade or so ago he may have cut it...but not now.
    What about Brad Pitt? Nobody ever mentions Pitt, but he could do it.

    John Cusack's a great actor, but I just can't see him in an action role such as this.

    Why people want blond actors to play Stark? Pitt is probably the last on my list to play Stark. Right after Mr. Bean.

    Well, not because of the hair color but because everyone know and has the blond Pitt in his mind. Besides Pitt would suck as Stark. Like I said, I would maybe cast him, IF Mr. Bean didn't want the role.

    I like Brad Pitt,but I have a hard time imagining him looking like Tony Stark. Now Ewen McGregor is a great actor and very talented and does resemble Stark.
    I agree with you White Howling, M.O.D.O.K isn't a villian I want to see,now Crimson Dyanamo and Titanium Man would make great villians in a film.

    This is a M.O.D.O.K. concept I did a while back. I could certainly see him being a cool villain - maybe not in a more reality-based Iron Man movie - but good eye candy nonetheless.

    Just because some of Iron Man's earlier foes were pretty silly looking doesn't mean the concept behind them is flawed too. And even if it is, it can easily be reimagined for a modern audience.

    You just need to think outside the box a little bit and use your imagination.

    I kinda like Guy Pearce. But my estimations of his acting ability went right down after The Time Machine.

    Tom Cruise is still my #1 choice. I know no one else will agree with me, but marvel will never have another chance to ring in an actor of cruise's name value and ability as well as having a love for the source material. We've been waiting for Iron Man so long, even through the time it was considered stuck in developmental hell. with the script complete and approved, I'd say pencil it in to whenever Cruise can do it.

    Cruise can't be anybody else but himself in every movie he does. We need somebody with Bale or Norton's skills where he can become the character. Last thin we need is people saying, "Have you seen that new Tom Cruise movie where he has that cool flying armour."

    I agree Cruise will bring a level of notoriety that no other actor can. He will insure a #1 opening, get Iron Man a budget increase, and lure a great director to the project. But he'd destroy all hope for a franchise. The only reason he has the MI series is because he has full control over script, director and cast. Arad wouldn't like that much, I can guarantee ya. Besides, the Marvel films have been great at raising actors media presence. Maguire, Jackman, Bana, Jane, the entire cast of FF;whether their movies hit or missed, the Marvel films have learned more toward being a showcase for actors that are good, just not known. The only experience Marvel's had with a star thus far was Daredevil, a mixed bag, honestly. I think there are many actors who'd love the challenge of IM and respect the source material, and would do a great job. It's no secret who I think the best guy is.

    Personally I would pick Tom Cruise to play a mature Spiderman. I like Mcdermott he looks the role and should be really cheap to get. Does anyone have an idea what kind of budget the IronMan movie will have?

    anyone??

    ...he could do it, watch minority report and combine it with some of his other characters. He's extremely handsome, got sex appeal, kinda of raunchy, has a grandoise dark side. This is Tony Stark. I know alot of people will complain he's short -- but first, look at Tom Cruise and two, modern filmmaking techniques kind hide this (i.e. X2 and James Mardsen). He could do it all very well...

    I like Tom Cruise to but he will not be able to do Iron Man due to his schedule,Dylan McDermott looks the part and he's a good actor,another guy that would do a good job is James Cavieziel.
    One guy who I would like Marvel and New Line to at least consider to direct, is Jonathan Frakes, he directed Star Trek First Contact, and did a great job.
    I heard at one time a while back that New Line was looking at $75 Million budget that might go up now that the movie is moving ahead.

    I wouldn't mind him as Stark, he is a very good actor. Another possible actor would be James Cavieziel, he was considered for Superman , I don't now how seriously,but he looks more like Tony Stark than Clark Kent.
