Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau talked to the Los Angeles Times about the fact that Iron Man will not have a secret identity in the sequel:
“It allowed us to draw upon our experiences and certainly Robert’s experiences,” the filmmaker said. “Robert had strong points of view on these things. He was propelled quite publicly to a much more successful station and we were able to draw upon that. We were able to comment on the phenomena of celebrity as we know it today.”
