Sound Bite: Robert Downey Jr.
Yeah but then you’re out in real time and you know we thought when we were in France that they were going to kill it and then we thought oh we thought oh Italy’s going to go you know they’re going to give us some shit and maybe a little, just different flavors of “oh why is all this politics clearly means you’re a dirty pinko” you know what ever.

Sound Bite: Robert Downey Jr. – on signing up for movie
Sure, wasn’t out of left field for me, I chased it down like a grey hound after a rabbit (talks) it’s the whole package, Jon Favreau directing it, launching a potential trilogy or quadrilogy or whatever you know and its something that you can keep going back and playing with and when I’ve talked to Tobey or Keanu or Johnny about doing this type of thing none of them said boy I really wish I hadnt done that, they all kind of say you know go on go take that ride, its worth it.

Sound Bite: Robert Downey Jr. – on real Army “Iron Man like” suits
Well being a bit of a nerd myself its like I really got off when I started realizing more and more you know you look on popular mechanics last month theirs Super Soldiers then they’re projecting into 20/20 when they’re basically gonna have suits not quite as cool as this available and for use by the military and its also kind of a crazy notion because you know ten of those things in the wrong hands could upset the balance of a nation. (talks) it’s kind of what the movies message is and its kind of exactly what’s happening in science (talks) But cool.

Sound Bite: Robert Downey Jr. – on being like his character
I think, I think most guys have a Tony Stark aspect whether its all fantasy, for me the billionaire, playboy, you know smooth talking confident guy is absolutely fantasy, I’m not that, but the idea of someone who knows what its like to have trails, if, to me it feels like sports, it feels like game day and if you take a bad hit you get back up and you get back in the game and you through a touchdown. That’s that Tony Stark story and that extended in this big mythological famework is every guy has had, every dog has had his day, that I’ve ever met and woman kind of get it, Stanley said Iron Man got more female fan mail then any of there other things, for reasons that are kind of explicable. And thank god you know because now a days you want to have all four whatever quadrants and you gotta or cant and this and that and it appeals to a remarkably wide audience.
