Last night, April 30th, Robert Downey Jr appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” I’m unable to embed the video, so just click on the still image above to be led to the full episode; Robert appears around the 14:15 mark. In it, he talks about the “insane phenomenon” that is the Iron Man franchise… and he teases that he “doesn’t know” what his future holds when it comes to move Marvel films (wink, wink). Jon Stewart’s always a fun – and smart – interviewer, so definitely check it out.
On Friday, April 26th, Robert Downey Jr appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” In the interview, he talks a bit about his birthday (and there’s a clip of him doing Gangnam Style in South Korea), his Oscar potential, breaking his ankle on the Iron Man 3 set, and he names his guilty pleasure snack. You can check out some pictures from the show in the gallery, or check out the entire episode below (he shows up around 16:50).
As promised, Marvel released a brand new trailer for Iron Man 3 today. The lengthy look at the upcoming film is full of action, drama, and excitement — that music build-up alone was enough to get me pumped. I don’t want to give too much away by talking about it, so just click play above and enjoy!
Iron Man 3 hits U.S. theaters on May 3rd; check international release dates here.
A new teaser trailer for the upcoming Iron Man 3 was released during yesterday’s Super Bowl game. The short promo showed Robert Downey Jr as a heroic Iron Man, rescuing people after being ejected from a plane. At the end, audiences were encouraged to go online to see an “extended” version, which you can see by clicking SHOW. I won’t spoil that treat for you, but be sure to check it out to see a fun clip featuring Tony Stark.
Last night, January 13th, Robert Downey Jr – and wife, Susan – attended the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Although Robert was not up for any awards this season, he had the distinct honor of not only introducing Jodie Foster to the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award but paying great tribute to her as well. There plenty of Downey jokes, as to be expected, but the kind words offered to his friend were truly wonderful. Jodie also gave an amazing (and some would say historical) speech, so it’s worth checking out in its entirety:
After the Globes ceremony, Robert and Susan headed to the Oasis Courtyard at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the annual Warner Brothers & InStyle after-party. There’s no use in listing who among Hollywood was also in attendance, because it’s probably easier to say who didn’t attend! Check out pics in the gallery.
On January 9th, Robert Downey Jr attended the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards — and took home two trophies himself. Congratulations, Robert! In the video below, you can see him accepting the award for both Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Superhero. Although he gave a fun speech as usual, he beautifully ended it with a tribute to an old fan and friend who recently passed away. Check out numerous pictures from the event in the gallery, including images from the show (alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts, the later of whom Downey complimented for her work in The Impossible during his speech), backstage (alongside Eddie Redmayne, who was recently rumored to snag a leading role in a Marvel movie), and the press room.
Here’s a short behind the scenes look on the recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer. Although Robert Downey Jr doesn’t make any comments to the camera in the video, he is featured several times throughout (and even labeled as “arguably the biggest movie star in the world”). It’s also just a pretty fun look at what went on during filming, so expect lots of… “surprises.”
Here’s a surprise: Robert Downey Jr made a special cameo in the trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, an upcoming first-person shooter video game. Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) directed, so there’s no doubt why Robert was involved. A few behind the scenes images from his shooting stint is above, and you can watch the actual video below. (Quiz: What co-star of Robert’s also makes a cameo?)
Entertainment Tonight debuted a “featurette” on Iron Man 3 this evening, showing both Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow on set. There’s some behind-the-scenes footage with the two of them, plus individual interviews. (Robert in particular talks about Exton and his role as a dad, not to mention the pros of the evolving Iron Man suits.) It’s short and sweet with some peaks at the recently released trailer, so check it out!
