Robert Downey On “Iron Man 3”

Robert Downey Jr. turned up at the Brazilian premiere of “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” this week and told Omelete of his high hopes for the upcoming third “Iron Man” film.

“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 really kind of cool, and smart” he says.

He was also asked about reports that he’s been linked to play Gepetto in a take on “Pinocchio” that Tim Burton is developing for Disney. Downey replied “I want to talk to him about it, yeah! C’mon, it’s Tim Burton.”
