    Though I think Cruise would be good, they could do better. I hold out hope that they'll cast the right person.

    Whoever they pick...will be fine IMO. We can't stress about it. This is Marvels first inhouse pic and Favreau's first big budget effort. There's no reason to believe they'll f this one up.

    I'm not surprised that Cruise is not being considered, like Jon has said he doesn't want an actor who will over shadow Iron man, and Cruise would do that.
    Tom comes with baggage as well, and might hurt the movie, taking nothing away from Tom's acting, he's a terrific actor, but his off screen issues would hurt the film.

    Ever since Favreau pulled that unexpected Mandarin announcement I am not taking anything he says as concrete. I am not saying Cruise is in talks for Iron Man but I am pretty sure Faves wouldn't say he was even if Cruise was.

    I always expected Mandarin because early on on Myspace he made it clear Mandarin was very possible but they couldn't keep him the same as in the comics for obvious reasons, and he hinted at some of the changes back then. I don't even think they considered other villains seriously but wanted to make sure it was possible before annoucing it.

    I am just saying even if Cruise was in talks I don't see his answer being different...lol.

    Those are some pretty good reasons right there.

    Tony Stark looks like a cross between Errol Flynn and Howard Hughes. That's how I see him and I'm sticking to it.

    Not really. Nobody wants these characters to suceed more than Marvel. They have the most to gain from a franchise continuing. They're not looking for instant gratification...they want the franchise to continue. All we can do is judge Favreau on his past films and they've all been good. You'll have a hard time finding an actor or director who doesn't praise him.
