Who’s The Big Winner? Downey! Downey’s The Big Winner!
Marvel Studios and Robert Downey Jr. have officially hitched their wagon to each other for approximately the next eight years. Yesterday, the two agreed to a four-picture contract, which will also get Downey Jr. to play Tony Stark in the planned “Avengers” movie. Marvel has a May 7th, 2010 date for “Iron Man 2” and a July 15th, 2011 date for “The Avengers”. Talk about planning ahead.
Also, Jon Favreau is confirmed to direct the second “Iron Man” movie. With the addition of Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes, it seems like the stage is set for another great superhero flick. Where is Gwyneth Paltrow in all this?
