Even Wonder director James Gunn calls the U.K.-based entirely mostly Sunday Times’ recommendation ”bulls—“

“The mountainous titles of the previous decade are brands and franchises established in quite a lot of prequels and sequels. Robert Downey Jr is a main man, however his Iron Man might maybe even be performed by nearly any person with wit; the character is extra essential to audiences than the actor,” the Sunday Times wrote on its legit Twitter tale.
The replies directly flooded in, with many folks pointing to MCU architect and Iron Man co-creator Stan Lee’s remarks that he belief Downey was born to play the role. “I deem of all of them, when Robert Downey Jr. performed Stark, he was appropriate gargantuan,” Lee said at Rhode Island Comic-Con in September 2017. “That man was born to be Iron Man, you realize? He’d be on the tip of the list.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn immediate shot down the idea that Downey wasn’t the man for the role and said Sunday afternoon, “I’ve seen the shroud tests. Here’s bulls—.”
One other fan (and Harvard University lecturer) Christopher Rhodes current, “this use ignores that grand of the ‘wit’ and other specifics that made Tony Stark/Iron Man so compelling and stylish had been enhancements of Robert Downey Jr. A favorable actor might maybe even be ready to mimic his Iron Man now, however they wouldn’t agree with reach up with it in the first space.”
Even though Downey wasn’t Wonder Studios’ first replacement, it doesn’t topic now, as his face and portrayal of Tony Stark/Iron Man had been bright enough to construct the Iron Man franchise one of Wonder’s most lucrative, ever. Since successfully launching the Wonder Cinematic Universe with the Jon Favreau-directed “Iron Man” in 2008, Downey has reprised the role in two sequels as successfully as appeared in eight other MCU movies, including all “Avengers” motion pictures. Securing Downey as Iron Man brought with it some mountainous tests for Wonder — the first film grossed over $585 million worldwide and “Iron Man 3” grossed over $1.2 billion globally.
