Downey Jr. Says Iron Man 3 Could be One of the Best Superhero Movies

Robert Downey Jr. told Omelete that he thinks Iron Man 3, to be directed by Shane Black, could be one of the better superhero movies ever made.

“You know, I think that we have an opportunity with the third Iron Man to make the best of the three, and maybe one of the better superhero movies that’s ever been made. But I think we have to remember what made the first one good. It was very character-driven. It was very odd. It was kind of outrageous. And so I think we have to have the courage to trust that the audience is actually really kind of cool and smart,” he said.
