Marvel Gave RDJ the Giant 'A' From 'Avengers'

Posted by Thora Under | 0 Comment(s)
Apparently, Robert Downey Jr. has everything he could ever want, from A to … well, he definitely has the "A" part covered.

The Iron Man star revealed in a BBC Radio One interview that Marvel gave him the 30-foot-tall "A" that appeared on the Stark Tower sign in The Avengers after he asked for it as a joke.

"On the last Avengers, there's this scene where there's this 'A' which is probably 30 feet tall, and I'm looking at it, and we're shooting in England, and I go, 'I need that in my office in Venice,' " Downey said.

"About two weeks ago, a wheeler showed up, I'm like, 'What the heck is this doing here?' " he said. "And they go, 'This is the 'A' you asked for.' And I go, 'They brought it?' So now we have a massive Avengers 'A' that will be prominently placed."

Downey was clearly well-compensated for the film, and not just in ridiculously oversized letters of the alphabet. The actor, who is in talks to appear in Captain America 3, has confirmed he earned $50 million for The Avengers.

Rome was pleased to see both Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall share the spotlight at the Italian photocall for their new film.

While young Robert arrived in blue fashion, older Robert went for a more laidback look in keeping that complemented his veteran star status.

They play father and son in the new drama which sees Downey Jr.'s hot shot lawyer return to his hometown after his mother's death, and end up defending his Judge father (Duvall) who is being charged with murder.

He's currently promoting his new film The Judge. But Robert Downey Jr appeared to be taking a break from the press junkets as he enjoyed a stroll through Villa Borghese in Rome on Monday.

The 49-year-old actor opted to blend in with his surroundings in a pair of camouflage pajama bottoms and a matching cap for the sunny walk through the park. Making sure to stay hydrated, the Iron Man mega-star carried a bottle of Fiji water with him for the leisurely stroll.

And he was equally certain to remain comfortable in a set of squishy flexible soled athletic trainers.Topping off his getup was a long sleeve shirt and a tong decorated with cut-out carvings made from semi-precious stones.

RDJ To Join 'Captain America 3'

Posted by Thora Under News, Films | 0 Comment(s)

Well, here’s some huge news this morning that will have ramifications for Phase Three and beyond of the Marvel Cinematic Universe…

Variety is reporting that Robert Downey Jr. is close to signing a $40 million plus deal to reprise the role of Tony Stark for 2016’s Captain America 3, which is set to adapt the Civil War comic book storyline and ”is seen as a way to drive the plots of sequels and new franchises for the next seven years, given the dramatic possibilities it offers for future films. The fallout from the government and Stark’s actions would factor into a new Avengers 4 film and beyond that will assemble new characters being introduced like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange, among others, in their own movies”.

Variety reports that the plot of Captain America 3 will “pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities. Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, saying it threatens civil liberties, causing sides to be taken and Rogers, among others, to go on the run to avoid arrest. The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in Captain America 3, providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth Avengers.”

Meanwhile, BadAssDigest has added to the report by claiming that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America 3 directors Joe and Anthony Russo are in talks to direct Avengers 3 and possibly Avengers 4, with the duo said to be the favourites of Marvel to take over the reins from Joss Whedon.

So, does this mean that Avengers 3 will culiminate with the final battle of Civil War? And where does it leave the whole Thanos and the Inifinity Gauntlet storyline? So many questions raised!

Downey and Evans will next be seen in May in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which also features Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Paul Bettany (JARVIS / The Vision), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), James Spader (Ultron), Thomas Kretschmann (Baron Strucker), and Josh Brolin (Thanos).

RDJ has new mission in 'The Judge'

Posted by Thora Under Articles, Interviews | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story

There are worse descriptions, as actor typecasting goes, than "wisecracking superhero."

Then again, if you're Robert Downey Jr. and colorful descriptions are what you trade in, it could start to feel a little bit limiting.

The wheel turns quickly in Hollywood. What barely six years ago was talk of "Can Downey really pull off a superhero?" has slowly changed into "How much longer is Downey going to keep doing this superhero thing?" Four times out as Iron Man (with a fifth such tentpole, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," on the way in May) and a couple of superhero-like Sherlock Holmes pictures, and that can start to happen.

So an actor who's morphed from wunderkind to cautionary tale to comeback story to (in some minds) a cliché, all seemingly before our eyes, is seeking a new phase, something less describable, though that doesn't mean Downey won't try.

"The first [Iron Man] was heart, heart, heart," he said. "Now the Tony Stark persona is eating itself. It hasn't gotten away from me. But I realize I'm on the wheel."

The actor has a don't-call-it-a-plan plan, an idea for another act, one in which he essentially aims to combine the freshness and intimacy of his early chapter with the clout and bankability of his recent one.
RDJ Teases a Big Marvel Announcement

Posted by Thora Under News, Articles, Videos | 0 Comment(s)
Robert Downey Jr. is a smart business man. And his latest movie The Judge is coming from his own production company Team Downey. He wants to sell the movie, and what better way to do that than use his most popular character as leverage? So he's going on various talk shows and saying various things, to get eyes on the real prize at the moment: His performance in this drama that opens this weekend. First he tells The Ellen DeGeneres Show that yes, Iron Man 4 is happening. The news instantly goes viral.
"I know there's going to be more Marvel movies, and they have big ideas of how to do it best… We're in the middle of negotiations, blah blah blah… Yes."
Later that same day, he goes on Late Show with David Letterman and has a completely different story, saying what he's said before. That Marvel and Disney have NO plans for a sequel.

Robert Downey Jr. now wants to reiterate the fact that Iron Man 4 isn't likely to happen anytime soon. At least not with him. But Marvel does have a plan, and that includes bringing the actor back as Tony Stark in at least one or more movies past The Avengers 3, which is right now scheduled to be his final movie for the studio.

Speaking with David Letterman, Robert Downey Jr. says:
"There's no plans for an Iron Man 4 . There's no script for Iron Man 4, but they do have a plan and I think they're gonna announce it. You know, [Marvel's] very secretive about it."
Later in the interview, David Letterman brings the subject up again, and this is where Robert Downey Jr. reveals that Tony Stark may continue on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
"Just between us, no, but I'm gonna do other stuff with Marvel. I'm still going to be involved with Marvel and there's gonna be plenty of fun stuff to happen."
He doesn't outright say that Tony Stark will be back following The Avengers 3, and for all we know, Team Downey may be producing an upcoming movie, or Robert Downey Jr. may want to take a role behind the scenes. Anything is possible.

Robert Downey Jr. has already wrapped his role in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron. This will be followed by The Avengers 3 for Marvel and Disney. As many know, following his appearance in Iron Man 3, the actor's initial contract with the studios was completed. On June 20, 2013, he signed a new agreement for the next two Avengers Sequels.

Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. claimed that he is once again in negotiations. It was revealed over the weekend that The Avengers 3 may be saving its key players for a later date, instead bringing in new heroes. What this means is that Marvel may be saving Robert Downey Jr. for an appearance in Marvel's Infinity Gauntlet or Marvel's Secret War or both. Of course, none of this has been confirmed by Disney or Marvel.
