It's another great night full of winners, and Robert Downey Jr. is one of them at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards!

The Iron Man 3 star smiled as he worked the arrivals area outside Los Angeles’ Galen Center and happily came inside to find out he won Best Male Buttkicker for his role in the superhero flick. During his acceptance speech, Robert said:
“You know, I wasn’t always a butt-kicker. In fact, life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways, in many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back! Now look at me! To all the kids around this wonderful blue planet, thank you for this awesome statue. And remember: when life is kicking your butt, never forget to kick it back right in the face! Love you later.”
Enjoy the pictures of Robert Downey Jr. at the 2014 Kids' Choice Awards from the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

RDJ on Chris Evans and 'The Avengers'

Posted by Thora Under Films, Interviews | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story
Robert Downey Jr. helped Marvel’s"Avengers" franchise skyrocket to success the instant he suited up as Iron Man in 2008. It’s a role he’s reprised in three films, with all four earning $3.9 billion in worldwide box office. He spoke to Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh about the franchise, his friendship with Chris Evans and, at age 48, how many more times he wants to suit up.

Had you met Chris Evans before he was cast in “Captain America?”
I have a vague memory of seeing him and whatever hot girl he was dating across from a dinner with me and Susan Downey. I think he and his girlfriend invited Susan and I back to their house to get in the Jacuzzi, to tell you the truth.

Seriously — did you go?
No, we did not, and by the way, like I said, that’s a vague memory, but that’s what I’d like for you to print.

Why did you urge Chris to take the Captain America role?
There was so much riding on what essentially could be considered the squarest superhero in history. It was probably the most risky of the franchises we launched. I say “we,” like I’m a company man, which I like to think I am. By the way, I’m a fan of his.
Gallery Update: Photoshoots

Having already shot some action photography on location in Johannesburg, South Africa, it's being reported that principal photography on Joss Whedon's eagerly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron was set to get underway yesterday at the Forte di Bard in Aosta Valley, Italy. The shoot didn't apparently feature any scenes with Robert, so we'll have to wait for his photos a little longer.
In the meantime, I've updated the gallery with Robert's oldest photoshoots from years 1984 - 1989. Enjoy!

RDJ talks Iron Man in 'Assembling a Universe'

Posted by Thora Under | 0 Comment(s)
Marvel and ABC will be airing a documentary special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe which is going to focus on how Marvel built their incredible cinematic universe. We have a new clip from the special that features Robert Downey Jr. talking about playing Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, his surprise at how popular the character became, and the reaction from fans.

"Playing someone who's conflicted, and conflicted for the right reasons and doesn't see the potential that they have and then starts living in accordance with a code is a great, old-fashioned theme," Downey says in the clip. "But I hadn't ever imagined that I could be involved in something that demonstrates it on this scale." Fans will recall that it was the breakout success of "Iron Man," Marvel Studios inaugural effort in 2008 featuring a character who didn't have the mainstream awareness of the X-Men or Spider-Man that allowed Marvel to continue producing and developing their own films, all of which exist in a shared universe.

While filmmaker Jon Favreau has been dabbling in big-budget studio fare for the past few years, his next film returns him to his indie roots. Favreau wrote, directed, produced, and stars in Chef as a chef who loses his job and opens a food truck with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo), and his son (Emjay Anthony) in order to recapture his artistic promise.  Favreau enlisted some of his friends to appear in the film as well, including his Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr., who has also contributed some original artwork to the pic. In anticipation of the film’s premiere at SXSW, Favreau has unveiled a video in which he and Downey Jr. display some festival posters that RDJ designed for the film. They’ll be giving away some signed posters at screenings and around town if you’re attending the festival in Austin, so be sure to keep an eye out.

Hit the jump to watch Favreau and Downey Jr. unveil the posters and crack a few jokes in the process. Chef opens in theaters on May 9th.

'Age of Ultron' is heading to South Korea

Posted by Thora Under News, Films | 0 Comment(s)
We've seen a few set photos, videos and a Hulk-themed scene description for The Avengers: Age of Ultron from the Johannesburg set, and now we have the first official statement from Marvel Studios about production on the eagerly-anticipated follow up to 2012's blockbuster The Avengers.
Marvel Studios announced today that the highly anticipated super hero sequel Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" will film key elements of the movie in the capital city of Seoul. Bringing production of this significant motion picture to Korea will create jobs for local extras, crews and vendors which will benefit the local film industry in South Korea.

"South Korea is the perfect location for a movie of this magnitude because it features cutting-edge technology, beautiful landscapes and spectacular architecture," said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and producer of Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron." "We would especially like to thank the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) for making it possible for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' to come to Korea."

"We're very excited to have the production in Korea, and also expect this to serve as the footstep of many more opportunities yet to come," says minister of Culture, Sports & Tourism of Republic of Korea, Yoo Jinryong.

In addition to Korea, where the number of fans of Marvel Studios' films has grown since the release of "Iron Man," the international production schedule for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" includes locations in London, United Kingdom, where the production will be based, as well as Johannesburg, South Africa; and Aosta Valley, Italy, with additional locations to be announced.
Directed by Joss Whedon, the film returns its iconic cast, including Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Joining the cast are Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and James Spader as Ultron.
