Robert Downey Jr. Covers EW Again -- As Iron Man!

Robert Downey Jr, as superhero Iron Man, takes the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday.

The 45-year-old actor shares that he further explored his character’s demons for the sequel. He shared, “The last time around, Tony Stark was a significantly cooler version of me. In a way, my calling in this one was to bring more of myself into it and more of my character defects.”

RDJ also talked about Iron Man 2’s box office prospects: “With Sherlock Holmes, I said, ‘We’re blowing Avatar out of the water.’ I was personally shocked at the cosmos when it did not respond to my incantations. I’m doing the same garbage this time.” Hah!

Iron Man 2 opens everywhere next Friday, May 7!

    Love this cover!! EW’s covers have been bland lately, so I can’t wait to get this one in the mail.

    I know the film will make lots of money.. But the promos suck and it looks to crowded..I can’t think of a better word..

    I don’t dislike Robert..but he is not aging well.. He is not hot.. I think he is talented.. but it seems like all of his characters are the same..Iron man and Sherlock could be the same person..

    But JMO..the movie will make bank.. even if not deserved..Sad that really good and creative films don’t make the money they should. and recycled gunk makes tons of money..

    Just wrong on so many levels..
