Is Robert Downey Jr the only Iron Man?
The latest Iron Man film came out couple of weeks ago and there has been a mixed reaction to it, but this week a senior executive at Marvel Studios has suggested that the Iron Man movie franchise can continue without star Robert Downey Jr.
He has a big vision for Iron man saying he ‘believe[s] there will be a fourth Iron Man and a fifth, sixth and a 10th and a 20th”.
He “see[s] no reason why Tony Stark can’t be as evergreen as James Bond, Batman, or for that matter, Spider-Man.”
All this talk of Iron Man without Robert Downy Jr has been sparked after actors have been reluctant to sign up to in the sequel to The Avengers, which Iron Man stars in.
The reason for this is money. The fact that Robert Downey Jr.’s estimated pay packet of £32m from the first movie, prompted his co-stars to seek similar deals. Chris Evans who plays Captain America is confirmed for avengers as he signed a two-movie deal from the outset but co stars Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L Jackson are all also reported to still be in negotiations.
And it seems like Downey is standing up for them as he seems to have a lot of power, a source has said “He’s already sent a message that he’s not going to work for a place where they treat his colleagues like s**t.”
Bieber’s Been Simpsonfied!
Justin Bieber has joined stars such as Ringo Star, Tom Jones and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers in becoming simpsonfied. Beliebers will be excited to see Justin appearing in The Simpsons this weekend in the US but if you cannot wait until then do look it up online as there are pictures of his animated counterpart which features his trademark mop-top hair and diamond ear studs. The episode he is in is called titled The Fabulous Faker Boys and involves Justin trying to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in and they won’t admit him.
Sadly a broadcast date for the UK has not been set yet so you’ll have to keep a look out for it!
