First Look: Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 2

rdjironman2-043009Paramount Pictures has released the first photo from Iron Man 2.  The photo, courtesy USA Today, features Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark working in his lab. Here are some excerpts from the USA Today article with quotes from director Jon Favreau:

The sequel to last summer’s blockbuster, which began shooting three weeks ago and opens May 7, 2010, takes place six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man, says director Jon Favreau. And the development is playing out with unexpected results. “How many superheroes are open about their true identities?” he asks. “We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences — in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore.”

Favreau says that tackling the franchise a second time is easier because he knows the landscape. Something else would help, too: “I really enjoyed when we were a dark horse and no one knew much about us. … I hope we can find that place again.”
