HOLLYWOOD – The Tony Stark prequel will focus on the creation of his comedy persona.
The new prequel to cover the early years of Tony Stark is going to emphasize his comic persona.
Robert Downey Jr today spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec:
We like the idea that Tony is always funny. He does quips and one liners and is an all round smart ass. But we wanted to see the origins of that and so we made this film and I think people will be surprised about the way it works. The fact of the matter Tony Stark was a Charlie Chaplin impersonator and so I used all the experience I had playing Charlie Chaplin to bring this out to the fore. We see his frustration with slapstick and his development into a moral verbal comedian.
But surely he’s more interesting as a sort of inventor?
There’s a bit of that but it’s mostly pouring a jug of fresh cream down at fat man’s trousers and tripping over walking sticks. We also have some other Avengers doing cameo roles. Captain America and Tony Stark have to dress up as women when they accidentally enroll in an all female school. It’s hilarious.
