Robert Downey Jr. Discusses ‘Iron Man 3’s’ Action Sequences

Robert Downey Jr. has been talking about what we can expect from the new Iron Man film which will launch Marvel’s Phase Two of superhero films.

The actor, who was talking to Entertainment Weekly, saying, “We’ve just been talking about one sequence. The top-secret name is the Boot/Glove Sequence, I can tell you that, just between you and me – it’s where Tony only has one gauntlet and one boot and he has to escape multiple captors.”

Downey Jr. then added, “It’s really fun, dude. We’re taking everything from his first gauntlet test in the first movie up through the most extreme stuff we thought up for Iron Man 2 and The Avengers and pulling on all of it and making this one big, extended challenge of physics.”

Downey Jr. also revealed that Don Cheadle’s Rhodes will play a more central role in the latest instalment to the movie, stating, “Rhodey is much more in the dead centre of things. He’s much more dynamic. We’ve made this decision that while Tony is a technical guy, he’s not really a trained guy.”

Cheadle and Downey Jr. are set to possess great chemistry on screen, with The Avengers star stating,” There’s a lot of fun to be had with Don because he’s really good with hardware and he’s a martial artist, so it’s been really fun exploiting this possibility of Tony having moments like the one in Avengers, like the one with Cap where he decides, ‘Oh screw it, he probably knows what he’s doing.’ So there’s a lot of that and a lot more fun and a lot more depth to Rhodey this time around.”

Iron Man 3 will be released on May 3, 2013.
