Iron Man sequel plans

05.01.2008
Tony Stark's fancy boots are just now propelling him across screens in IRON MAN, but -- assuming the movie makes a buck or two -- a sequel is already in his hi-tech sights.

Paramount honcho Brad Grey has apparently stated that as long as the flick does "as well as expected" (and there's no reason to think it won't), the studio wants to get a sequel in theaters for the same May weekend in 2010.

Of course, IRON MAN isn't actually a Paramount movie -- it's Marvel's first self-financed project to hit screens, with Paramount distributing. But with the buzz so far, it's no great surprise they'd all want to get Downey back in the super-suit ASAP. Director Jon Favreau has already said he planned a loose structure for three movies, with Mandarin presumably making a villain appearance along the line.

Extra Tidbit: Considering hints dropped in the first one, could one of the sequels end up being IRON MAN AND THE AVENGERS?

Acutally override...

when Captain America was severely wounded by Red Skull (I think it was him, it might have been a different villain), he asked Iron Man to step up to the challenge of leading the Avengers, and he did for a little while...till Cap returned 100%.

So Iron Man and The Avengers would KINDA make sense.

Also, I give Iron Man a 8/10.

After the boxoffice performance of Iron Man, It's pretty much guaranteed for a sequel now.

The original Avengers consisted of Iron Man...so it would be just the Avengers

2nd film

well, obviously WAR MACHINE will be in the second. Two things: 1. is Nick Fury going to actually be in the 2nd. 2. will he be at the end of HULK talking to bruce banner (ed Norton) about the avengers.

otherwise, this film was kick ass and I will see it again and hopefully 2010 comes around soon.

Early projections are a 70-80m$ opening weekend. That coupled with merchandising numbers should be more then enough to lock a sequel. Will be seeing it again for sure. Also, kinda surprised to see at least one decent quality pirate version floating around the web.

IRON MAN 2

Theirs many ways the second film could go, but I doubt they'll go right ahead and do The Avengers, they still need to introduce the rest of the team and Favreau does want to make Iron-Man in to a trilogy, so maybe after the Iron-Trilogy then they could think of the Avengers, besides we still need , Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp and Black Widow, Hulk is on the way, but Iron-Man did kick ass! it's the best Superhero film yet.

If you wait until after the credits you'll see a short clip about what the plot might be in the sequel

do u feel pandered to too?

Don't get me wrong ppl, I loved the film. Best 'Marvel' superhero movie evar! I was a huge Bob Layton fan in my comic reading days. How was the movie from the non iron man/marvel comic reader perspective? God bless ILM, Stan Winston, and the other effects teams it took to make this film! I'm glad they waited until now to even attempt this kind of movie!

This movie was awesome!! Right up there with BEGINS, SUPERMAN RETURNS(yes I really liked it), SPIDER-MAN 2, and the 1st X-MEN in terms of good stuff. I hope they don't jump into the AVENGERS stuff to quickly though. Build up the other franchises and have a MONSTER collabo-flick released in the no-too-distant future. That would be sickness. Who would play Mandarin though? Asian, realatively high-profile...Chow Yun Fat?

guys lay off he didn't give anything away

Yea nodirectionhome let something slip, but are any of you really expecting a villain in a marvel movie to make it past the film they are show up in? Other the doom (who should have died) you only have Magneto and Mystique who make it to another movie. Lay off, you shouldn't be shocked. If anything you should be expecting the villains to die! Marvels been killing of baddies like they mean nothing. Goblin, Ock, Bullseye, Toad, Sabertooth, the scores of background baddies from X-men…come on! Did

Anyway, even if you’re really hurt by Nodirectionhomes slip, the movie was steller and needs more then one outing and I never thought I would care to see anything with Ironman in it. This movie really was that good. It was like watching marvels best comic book work in real life. And the acting was good enough to create charaters that noncomic fans would enjoy anyway. Go see it and enjoy. His slip takes nothing away from the film.

I'm going to back nodirection on this one..

He didnt say anything that was serious. Would I be ruining Batman if I told you that someone in the movie becomes two-face? Or someone does turn Green in the Hulk?

I have a very strong opinion on this site towards peoples stupid opinions. There are some people who when I see post, I cringe just for pure stupidity that comes out of their mouth.

Someone does die in this movie! In fact, many fuckin people die in this movie. Iron Man KILLS people!

The movie was great so shutup and go

Please, explain how exactly is mentioning a character dying, ruining or spoiling this film ? I didnt mention whom or what or when, nor give specificitiy of name or actor. Are you all that fucking naive ? All I simply mentioned, was Id like to see more of this particular character in future films . If its the mentioning of an anti-climatic ending, thats not exactly news; infact most critics pointed this out in reviews. A spoiler is something that gives away major plot points (SIXTH SENSE), ties

If its the mentioning of an anti-climatic ending, thats not exactly news; infact most critics pointed this out in reviews. A spoiler is something that gives away major plot points (SIXTH SENSE), ties the story together (CITIZEN KANE)or keeps people in thier seat (STARWARS). Neither which applies to my statement. If such a mention upsets you enough to spill your sippy cup, perhaps its time to grow out of the Iron Man pj's and move out of the basement. It is after all, just a movie.

great movie.

Still liked Batman Begins better but I hope you all stayed after the credits. The crowd went nuts and all I kept on saying after the movie was (from the videogame) THE AVENNNNGERRRSSS

Just saw it...

at the Century City AMC - the crowd dug it. The movie is awesome and Downey is perfect... actually, they're all good in it. (Welcome back, Gwyneth!) Dug the hell out of the movie. It's a kick-ass way to start the summer season... Oh, and Downey and Favreau were in the lobby after... said they were going over to Arclight next.

Bring on "Iron Man 2"!

HEY NODIRECTIONHOME:

Yeah no direction you are kind of a douche. And you probably didn't see the real ending after the credits which made the movie that much more badass. Make sure you guys who haven't seen it stay for the surprise after the credits! I'm hoping Marvel making their own films now creates more movies as awesome as this.

Hey nodirectionhome:

Nice Spoiler Alert Warning, DICK! You do know some of us haven't SEEN IT YET, right? Anyway, I am hip to another one. I am seeing this tomorrow afternoon but the buzz from my buddies who saw it tonight was all positive!

Wow, I mean holy shit! Ive not been this excited from a summer film in over ten years. What a great start to the summer. In regards to the sequel, Im kind of suprised they would kill off a character who couldve been a great antagonist for the second film. Which is the only true flaw of IRON MAN is the already anti-climatic ending; which brings the film from 100mph to a mild 60. Its not SPIDEY 3 bad, but just bogged down in the "origin" story basics 101; kind of similar to SPIDEY 1.

Sweet Movie

Considering how many things they hinted at for the next movies, I can totally see a trilogy. Favereau and Downey Jr made Iron Man a reality for comic book fans and I believe the way that the movie was made, also can bring new people who aren't familiar with the hero into the mix. Great movie! Although, I was pissed that THE DARK KNIGHT trailer wasn't with Iron Man!!

Awesome news that they're alreay thinking ahead to fasttrack seqel, jut got out of seeing it and it lives up to the hype. Downey Jr and the rest of the cast are phenomenal. Let's hope the rest of the summer blockbusters live up to the hype as this did.

PLAN

I bet this movie will dominate in the box office, that is until Indy comes in. So I will see this and when I do, I will determine if this makes a sequel or not. Though, I am sure it DEFINITELY will!
