Robert Downey Jr. is going to play Tony Stark...? I'm a little conflicted on that choice; I do see him playing the playboy/drunk part well. I hope he pulls it off. What do you think about Downey playing Stark?

I've only ever liked him as drug addicts and/or weirdos a la his roles in Wonder Boys and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, both films I enjoyed immensely. It could just be that at this point in his life he's just a better actor or at least getting better roles. Perhaps he'll do well with the drunk part.

Anyways, I find comic book movies usually depend so much more on the director than the cast (moreso than all other movies, which of course also depend so much on the director generally more than anything else IMO). Compare X-Men 1 & 2 (directed by Bryan Singer) with what I felt was an atrocious X-Men 3 (directed by Brett Ratner, also responsible for the similarly poorly-directed After the Sunset and Red Dragon, both of which I thought could have been so much better had another director been responsible for them); same cast, but 3 makes me want to cry - I'm wicked glad I bought the X-Men 1 & 2 special boxed set before 3 even came out.

Not sure what I think of Jon Favreau as a director yet, but I hope he does well.

Havn't saw x3 yet, but Ratner did well on rush hour and the family man... I like him as a director. But Singer is the man...

Yeah those two seemed fine. That rather makes me think even less of Ratner, though - at least if they _all_ sucked he'd be consistent.

I'm glad to hear that there are more people that didn't like X3. I have a couple of friends that thought I was an idiot for not liking it. But then again if it has anything to do with XMen, Star Wars, Star Trek or the like, they think it's the best thing since buttered bread.

Not sure about Robert Downey Jr. being Tony Stark. The drunk whiney ass that Stark is, might fit well for Downey. I've never really cared for Iron Man / Tony Stark but I'll check the movie out when it hits DVD.

Later,

I totally agree... xmen 3 is a big pile of terd!

I didn't even know Favreau was a director... I seriously hope he does well; I can't wait for this flick. Excited for Bay's Transformers movie too. Now there's a director I like. That'd be cool if he was doing Iron Man too.
