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