Iron Man is one of my favorite comic book superheroes. I still remember watching the cartoon series on tv when I was a kid. I’ve always been waiting for this time when Hollywood would create a screen version of Iron Man. And now, they did.
Iron Man (Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark) is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck and Jack Kirby in Tales of Suspense #39 (March 1963).
Downey will play Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. Upon his return to America, Tony must come to terms with his past. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man.
