When a superhero movie is on the horizon, the hype can get pretty big. Luckily there are grounded, level headed men like the ever humble and never one for hyperbole Robert Downey Jr. to give us the heads up on an upcoming project. In a recent interview with Omelete the star gave us a hint of what the Iron Man threquel will be like. If your Portuguese isn’t so great, here it is in English.
“I think that we have an opportunity with the third Iron Man to make the best of the three, and maybe one of the better superhero movies that’s ever been made. But I think we have to remember what made the first one good. It was very character-driven. It was very odd. It was kind of outrageous. And so I think we have to have the courage to trust that the audience is really kind of cool, and smart.”
Actually, that does sound pretty good. Let’s be honest, Iron Man 2 was a bit of a let down. If they can recapture the heart and the action of the first and repackage it in a new story that moves us forward, it’ll be good. One of the best ever? Well Mr. Downey Jr. don’t get a head of yourself.
He then closed of the interview by firing up his robot pants, tossed back some vodka and flew off to the library… um, I think. My Portuguese ain’t so good.
Iron Man 3 is set to hit the big screen May 3rd, 2013.
