Back in the day, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Jon revealed how Marvel straight away refused to cast Robert Downey Jr. in their movies and got a response saying, “under no circumstances are we prepared to hire him for any price.” Director Jon Favreau’s choice as Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr was not popular with Marvel at that time, who point blank refused to cast him. Not because of lack of talent, per se, but rather because of his history with drugs and alcohol.

Later in 2007, Jon told USA Today, “We didn’t want to just go with a safe choice. The best and worst moments of Robert’s life have been in the public eye.”

The director continued and added, “He had to find an inner balance to overcome obstacles that went far beyond his career. That’s Tony Stark. Robert brings a depth that goes beyond a comic-book character who is having trouble in high school, or can’t get the girl. Plus, he’s simply one of the best actors around.”

In yet another interview with 100.3 Jack FM in 2014, Jon Favreau said, “Everybody knew he was talented… Certainly by studying the Iron Man role and developing that script I realised that the character seemed to line-up with Robert in all the good and bad ways. And the story of Iron Man was really the story of Robert’s career.”

For the unversed, Iron Man did a business of 585 million dollars worldwide. Well, we guess casting Robert Downey Jr was the best decision that Marvel made.

  1. I have realized some essential things through your website post. One other thing I would like to state is that there are plenty of games that you can buy which are designed in particular for preschool age small children. They involve pattern acceptance, colors, pets, and forms. These typically focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This helps to keep children engaged without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks

  2. Hey, you used to write magnificent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring?I miss your great writings. Past several posts are just a little bit out of track! come on!

  3. Thanks for the strategies you share through this web site. In addition, quite a few young women that become pregnant never even try and get health insurance coverage because they dread they wouldn’t qualify. Although a lot of states at this moment require that insurers present coverage in spite of the pre-existing conditions. Costs on most of these guaranteed plans are usually bigger, but when with the high cost of medical care bills it may be some sort of a safer route to take to protect your own financial potential.

  4. Thanks a lot for providing individuals with remarkably spectacular opportunity to read critical reviews from this web site.

  7. Hi there and Happy Holidays!! It’s the season of giving and I just a quick question, are you looking to supplement your income? Maybe you’re stuck in the rat race and blogging isn’t working out too well? Or perhaps you’re retired and need a little income boost to help you cover some bills? I really think there is an AWESOME opportunity that could really help you out which I came across: I’ve been working from the comfort of my home this winter and supplementing my income :-).

  8. Picture this – 3 am in the morning, I had a line of fiends stretched around the corner of my block. It was in the freezing middle of January but they had camped out all night, jumping-ready to buy like there was a sale on Jordans. If you were 16 years old, in my shoes, you’d do anything to survive, right? I got good news though; I MADE IT OUT OF THE HOOD, with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection. I’m not special or lucky in any way. If I, as a convicted felon that used to scream “Free Harlem” around my block until my throat was sore, could find a way to generate a stable, consistent, reliable income online, ANYONE can! If you’re interested in legitimate, stress-free side hustles that can bring in $3,500/week, I set up a site you can use:

  9. Okay, this might be a little bit random, but I saw your blog and had to ask, are you interested in a translation job? I know I’m a stranger but I felt like doing a good deed today by alerting a couple people that a good position has opened up here: and they pay sometimes even $40/hour. Okay, they won’t always give that amount, I only made around $300 last week, but it’s part time and when times are tight, every little bit helps. Hope it helps, and my apologies if you’re not interested. Have a great day/evening!
