Matt Damon Talks About 'Elysium' and Fighting Iron Man

Exoskeletal armor is all the rage these days, or so we've heard. "Elysium," Matt Damon's latest film, due out August 9, is proof of armor's status as the latest fashion must-have.

Of course, there's always the debate over who wore it best, or in this case, who would win in a fight: Damon's Max, who wears the armor to survive and strengthen him in "Elysium," or the original man in the iron suit, Iron Man — Robert Downey Jr.

Naturally, NextMovie was dying to know what Damon thought the outcome of a suit-on-suit battle would be, so when we sat down with the star to chat ahead of the release of "Elysium," we had to ask. Get More »

Our Superheroes Ranked From Least to Most Patriotic

Iron Patriot Marvel

One of the best things about "Iron Man 3" was the debut of Iron Patriot, which is basically a suit of Iron Man armor painted to look like the American flag. Seriously, just when you thought Iron Man couldn't get any cooler, this thing comes along, smashing evil ideologies with the fist of superhero righteousness. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Really, Rhodey's a one-man Fourth of July party in that get-up. Which got us thinking: who might be the ultimate Independence Day superhero? Get More »

Robert Downey Jr. Signs on to Play Iron Man in 'Avengers 2' and '3'

Iron Man 3 Marvel

Well, well, well. Look who's up and avenging on this fine Thursday afternoon.

Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man himself, has signed on for two more "Avengers" movies, Marvel confirms. The studio must be more than pleased to have their Tony Stark in place: Downey's last two outings for the studio, "Marvel's The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3," have scored big at the box office. "Iron Man 3" just crossed the $400 million domestic threshold, still selling tickets a month after its initial release. "Marvel's The Avengers" occupies the number three slot for all-time gross, raking in more than $623 million domestically. Get More »

This Happened: Little Kid Thought He Was Meeting Iron Man, Cried When RDJ Showed Up

Contract negotiations are ongoing to bring Robert Downey Jr. back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2" and a possible fourth "Iron Man" film, hot on the heels of both franchise's previous installments cracking the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box-office. But nevertheless, Robert Downey Jr. is so identifiable as Tony Stark/Iron Man, right? Don't take our word for it. That's what Joss Whedon said recently. "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" director Jon Favreau agrees. Even Marvel honcho, Kevin Feige, must love him in the role, whether he has to replace him or not.

But whether grownups think RDJ "is" Iron Man matters naught to little tikes. Case in point: a cute faux-hawked 1-year-old thought he was going to meet Iron Man and burst into tears when all he got was plain ole Robert Downey Jr. Get More »

Robert Downey Jr. isn't signed up for any more sequels, but his director definitely wants him back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2."

Last month, Downey, his producing partner/wife Susan Downey, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Disney Studios boss Alan Horn and "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black sat down to lunch to celebrate their latest box-office bonanza, but also ostensibly to talk about Downey's deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'Iron Man 2' Déjà Vu: Scarlett Johansson Joins RDJ in 'Chef'

Marvel Marvel

Can you say "'Iron Man 2" reunion"?

As much as we'd like to forget that particular sequel confection, all the essential ingredients of it were solid (except perhaps the gamey taste of Mickey Rourke), so it makes our mouth water to learn via The Hollywood Reporter that the delectable Scarlett Johansson will be assembling with Avenger Robert Downey Jr. for star/director Jon Favreau's "Chef."

'Iron Man 3': The Story Behind Mark Ruffalo's Top Secret Cameo

[From MTV NewsAs with all of Marvel's movies, "Iron Man 3" ended with an Easter egg — this time, a little button of a scene between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and a decidedly unengaged Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as the eponymous superhero recounts his post-"Avengers" experiences.

According to Mark Ruffalo, that scene was conceived and abandoned at least once before time actually came to film it. Get More »

Infographic: How Much Time Iron Man Spends in His Suit

One of the many perks Robert Downey Jr. gets with each new "Iron Man" sequel (besides a substantially bigger paycheck) is spending less time in those hot-rod red suits and more time in his trailer watching "Downton Abbey" with Jon Favreau.

With "Iron Man Three" rocketing to the top of the global box office, we thought we'd calculate just how much RDJ's Tony Stark has been slacking with each ensuing installment, leaving Rhodey and Pepper Potts to do the dirty work.
