Iron Man in cinemas this Friday

Comic book films have come to define the box office summer season and kicking things off this weekend is a new kid on the block – Iron Man. The film stars Hollywood maverick Robert Downey Jnr. in the central role as billionaire weapons expert Tony Stark who becomes the title’s crime-fighting superhero. The actor, better known for his off-screen antics and cool, lazy charm, is an unconventional choice to carry such a big-budget, action extravaganza, but with a supporting cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges and Jon Favreau (Swingers, Elf) behind the lens, the film has a strong ensemble.

Iron Man marks a historical move from Marvel Comics as it is their first stab at producing their own work, rather than handing over creative control to a Hollywood studio (as per Spiderman with Sony). It is also the first big film to be released from this summer’s exciting line-up including the likes of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Dark Knight and Wall-E.
