Robert Downey Jr Iron Man 3 Opens Friday
Iron Man 3 has taken in over $200 million overseas and opens in the U.S. on Friday May 3 2013. It’s taking every molecule of my being to not fly into a million pieces right now. Robert Downey Jr. sat down with George Stephanopolous to talk about the third installment of my favorite Avenger.
What Is It Like In the Iron Man Suit?
The Iron Man we are seeing in this film is very different. Robert Downey Jr said that he is full of anxiety after coming out of The Avengers. He’s coping by building more suits and Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle are doning them to fight The Mandarin. Paltrow said that RDJ is a little bit of a wimp and that being in the suit isn’t that bad.
“Well, if she says so she must be right. She is a woman.”
