Comic-Con 2006: "Iron Man" Villain, Armor Design, and Plot Details

by | July 23, 2006 | Comments

…Talking about the feel of the armor, Favreau stated, "There is a sort of Robocop-like quality this character could have; I like the weight and mass and power," adding that this Iron Man would never be about martial arts "Power Rangers" moves, and instead all about heavy metal and heavy weapons.

…Favreau described the storyline as a combination of James Bond and a Tom Clancy novel, deeply embroiled in the geopolitical issues of our time. Since he sees the project as a number of films, he has opted to incorporate the "demon in a bottle" alcoholism storyline in future films after the character has been introduced and developed.

…Finally, Favreau revealed that the villain that Iron Man will face in the film is the Mandarin. He also hinted that he might reprise his Daredevil role of lawyer Foggy Nelson for this film. The movie will be the first released by the newly-formed Marvel Studios, and it is set to hit theaters in May, 2008. Stay tuned to IGN FilmForce for more updates on this and other Marvel films.
