Tom Cruise Still Up for Playing Iron Man

Empire Online caught up with Tom Cruise who says he’s still in talks about playing Iron Man.

“He’s a fascinating character, but we’ve got to figure out how it’s going to work. And everyone is doing a Marvel character these days. How do we make that new, create something fresh where it doesn’t feel like, ‘Oh, here comes another superhero story’?”

Iron Man, for those not up to speed, is billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, who must wear an armoured breastplate to protect his injured heart. In between running a company and dealing with alcoholism, he fights bad guys with the aid of an incredibly advanced suit of armour and a disturbingly large array of weaponry.
