Appearing in the Joe Rogan ExperienceRobert Downey Jr., who skillfully turned the former middle-level hero Iron Man into a household name over the course of nine films in ten years that culminated in this year's record Avengers Final GameHe spent more than an hour discussing his fascinating life and career, particularly within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While reflecting on the transition from superhero fiction from fun campy to serious cinema (despite the opinions of Martin Scorsese), the two briefly touched another iconic superhero.
When asked how many different versions of the DC Comics pillar bat Man have appeared on the screen, the only answer from Downey Jr. was: "I want to see what Pattinson does. I like that guy." Downey and Pattison worked technically on the same project once, in the 2010 romance straight to the video Love and distrust, which consisted of five different short films, although they appeared in separate parts of the film (Downey appeared in the "Automatic motives" segment, while Pattinson appeared in the story of "The Summer House").
Downey's enthusiasm for Pattinson's portrayal of a Bruce Wayne upstart incarnation in DCEU's upcoming Matt Reeves movie The batman It is in stark contrast to the cynicism and criticism with which the online community received the decision to issue. The overwhelming reaction to the announcement of the hiring of Pattinson was mocking and was almost entirely based on the actor's involvement with the Twilight franchise.
He also completely ignored the rest of Pattinson's considerable professional work, which includes playing Eric Packer in David Cronenberg's work. Cosmopolis, T. E. Lawrence in Werner Herzog & # 39; s Desert queen, Salvador Dalí in Paul Morrison Small ashes, Ephraim Winslow in Robert Eggers & # 39; The lighthouseand Louis, Duke of Guyenne, in the house of David Michôd The king. In short, given the company of a talented director and a solid script, Pattinson regularly offers truly powerful performances.
Downey's support is also interesting given that Iron Man, who first appeared in Thrillers # 39 in March 1963, it is largely Marvel's own version of the old DC Batman, which first appeared in Detective Comics # 27 in March 1939, with serial numbers on file. After all, Stark and Wayne are two obscenely rich playboys who look in the moonlight as disguised vigilantes, armed with patented technology and an immeasurable glow, while fighting against their own internal psychological demons, partly related to the murders of their parents.
The batman It is currently scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021, while Downey's latest project, the critically eviscerated Dolittle, premieres on Friday, January 17.
