First Pictures of ‘Iron Man’

iron-manImages from the set of Iron Man, the latest comic book inspired production, have made it to the web. You can check the pictures out here on Don’t get too excited. The pictures don’t show much – you’ll get a view of Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts) in evening wear at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau (best known as the writer/star of ‘Swingers’) and is sheduled for a May 2008 release. Interesting choice by casting to choose Robert Downey Jr. I can’t think of another star who has played the hero during the comic cross-over craze we’re in right now who has more of a ‘serious actor’ reputation. We’ll see what he brings to the role.

    I don’t think Robert Downey Jr’s casting is nearly as interesting as Gwyneth Paltrow’s casting beside Downey’s. Talk about a disparity – Paltrow’s snore inducing acting in the same shot as Downey could be a big distraction.
