The Iron Man Movie - Slated for May 2, 2008

Iron Man is a 2008 superhero film based on the fictional Marvel Comics character Iron Man. The film is directed by Jon Favreau and stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Also signed are Terrence Howard as Jim Rhodes, and Gwyneth Paltrow as "Pepper" Potts. The film is slated for a May 2, 2008 release.


Since the movie is still in pre-production, this is what has been said thus-far: Tony Stark develops the three stages of the Iron Man armor, starting with "clunky, low-tech... diving bell armor" that he is forced to build in Afghanistan. Stark eventually updates the armor to a flying suit with the red and gold scheme and finally attains a "weapons platform" stage with the armor. Stark faces the villain The Mandarin.
