Robert Downey, Jr. Wants To Stop Doing MCU Movies ‘Before It’s Embarrassing’
Robert Downey, Jr. Wants To Stop Doing MCU Movies ‘Before It’s Embarrassing’

 

Robert Downey, Jr. is 52 and has been playing Tony Stark/Iron Man for 9 years. He was a drug addict who nobody would hire before. I feel that’s less embarrassing (via Screenrant)

“Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven [movies] I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it’s embarrassing.”…“It’s this cyclical thing I could have said when the first Avengers came out: ‘It’s never going to get any better than that. Everybody stop’. But to me it’s always about people and opportunities, like the (Avengers directors Anthony and Joe) Russos, who I adore.”

I guess when you do something for 9 years it could get old after a while, but he makes like $50M every time they CGI the Iron Man suit on him, and it probably won’t get embarrassing until he and Captain America find out they both have moms named Martha.

Robert Downey, Jr. Is Getting $200M For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

“Jennifer Lawrence made $20M last year? Aww, bless her heart.”


Since Marvel can’t leave any action figure or fast food marketing tie in money out of the collection plate, Avengers: Infinity War will be split into two movies. The focus group inspired titles are Avengers: Infinity War Part One and Avengers: Infinity War Part One, because they don’t want to confuse their target demographic. The budget for these two films is rumored to be $1 billion. mostly because Robert Downey, Jr. is in the cast. 

Reportedly, the combined budget for both Avengers: Infinity War movies is $1 billion dollars, of which $400 million goes to the screenwriter, director, producers and principal actors. Of the portion of that $400 million which goes to the actors, Robert Downey, Jr. will allegedly receive half of it, or something under $200 million. If $1 billion seems like a far-fetched budget for two blockbuster movies, keep in mind that this estimate includes the huge marketing costs and isn’t subtracting anything for tax incentives or corporate sponsorships, which can shave a sizable percentage off a movie’s budget. Case in point, Man of Steel knocked well over $170 million off its budget with ad tie-ins and free advertising spots.

Goddamn, son. What makes this even more insane is that most of Robert Downey, Jr.’s “screen time” is a CGI suit. For $200M they could make a CGI Robert Downey, Jr. or have Ben Carson go back in time and stop the Holocaust with an army of Popeye’s cashiers.

Robert Downey, Jr. Wants You To Control Your Kid
Robert Downey, Jr. Wants You To Control Your Kid

 

If You haven't seen the greatest photo to hit the Internet yesterday, here's Robert Downey, Jr. pondering his fight or flight response in Massachusetts as 18-month old, mom-proclaimed "Iron Man fan", Jaxson Deeno, has a meltdown because RDJ wasn't in the Iron Man suit. Sure, I can understand how a child would be disappointed if he was promised Iron Man and got Tony Stark after a fresh shave instead, but please keep in mind this child name's is "Jaxson" and his mom gives him a faux hawk. This probably won't be the last disappointment he faces in life. It's good for children to learn to deal with this early in life.

Robert Downey, Jr. Concerns Me

Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow showed up to the photocall for Iron Man 3, and I'm just going to go ahead and say it. Tony Stark would beat his ass for this. I don't know if he's there to promote a movie or look for Berries and Cream Starburst.

Here’s The First “Iron Man 3” Trailer


We just saw the teaser trailer yesterday, but here’s the full trailer for Iron Man 3 today. It was written by Shane Black (the guy in the glasses in Predator who wrote Lethal Weapon), so hopefully Tony Stark says “I’m getting too old for this shit” at some point or has an opportunity to pop his shoulder back in place.

Iron Man 3 Has A Teaser Trailer


The production of Iron Man 3 shut down downtown Raleigh and Cary then took over Wilmington, but that’s better than the time when they shot Battle Royale With White PeopleThe Hunger Games here because that movie sucked, so here’s the new teaser trailer. Reportedly, the full length teaser will hit sometime this week. I wonder if Tony Stark will stay something sarcastic then blow something up. Probably not.

The Avengers Trailer Is Out


The official trailer for The Avengers was released today. They play Nine Inch Nails over it, so you know they mean business. Or there’s a possible scene where somebody cuts themselves to feel then cries in the shower. Who’s to say, really?

Lindsay Is Crying, Needs Iron Man

[SinglePic not found]

Lindsay will be getting out of jail in less than a week, but based on her incessant whining and crying all hours of the night, you’d think she was tied over a cliff on Skull Island. Oh, boo hoo, you spoiled cunt. The Sun reports:

The actress has reportedly kept prisoners at LA County jail awake at night as she wails over the taunts chanted at her repeatedly throughout the day. As a result, Lindsay’s been put in lockdown as officials bid to make conditions more bearable for all, says former inmate Cheryl Presser. She revealed: “Lindsay would lie there shivering all night, crying and covering her face with her hands. “Her wailing was keeping everyone awake. She had a hysterical fit, crying and yelling, so she got put in isolation.” One US report claims Lindsay is being monitored around-the-clock and has even spent a short time in hospital.

In other Lindsay news (there always is), Michael Lohan is still trying to keep his name in the news by attempting to get Robert Downey, Jr. (who went through drug rehabs like condoms back in the 90’s), to speak with his troubled daughter. Us Magazine reports:

“My people are reaching out to Robert Downey Jr. and to Mark Wahlberg. I know both of them and Mark is a tremendous human being,” Michael says. “Hopefully they’ll see her before she gets out and she’ll get in this rehab and get off these prescription meds, and she’ll get her life back.” “Once she gets out, which will be Thursday or Friday, of course I’m going to fly back and I’ll be there for her,” Michael says. “She’s only on two [medications] right now. Ambien is for sleeping, so I can understand that,” Michael says. “But this Adderall stuff has got to be stopped. Seven out of 10 kids in college are on this stuff and it’s no more than methamphetamine! It’s speed.”

My people are reaching out to Robert Downey, Jr.”? Dude, you wear acid-washed jeans and a braided belt with a cell phone holster on it, who are these people you’re talking about? Crockett and Tubbs? Are they still parking their DeLorean? Are they Vietnam vets who now solve mystery cases with an orange robot? I’m so confused right now.

Iron Man 2 Trailer Is Online



The first full official trailer for Iron Man 2 hit online today um,…HOLY SHIT! It’s gonna be hard to top the first one, but Robert Downey, Jr. owns as usual then you add Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Scarlett Johansson (pictures) as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Don Cheadle as Col. Jim Rhodes/War Machine. The only way this trailer could be any more awesome is if it showed Iron Man blowing up Osama Bin Laden at a party where Megan Fox is going down on Kelly Brook.
