Robert Downey Jr talks ‘Iron Man 3’ stunt and the role of Rhodey

2013 appears to be an action packed year for movies and a third “Iron Man” film will kicked off the next phase of Marvel films.

Star Robert Downey Jr. revealed a minor spoiler when talking to EW in a Jan. 28 article about a memorable action sequence in the film:

iron-man-3-extremis-armor“We’ve just been talking about one sequence – the top-secret name is the Boot/Glove Sequence, I can tell you that, just between you and me – it’s where Tony only has one gauntlet and one boot and he has to escape multiple captors. It’s really fun, dude. We’re taking everything from his first gauntlet test in the first movie up through the most extreme stuff we thought up for Iron Man 2 and The Avengers and pulling on all of it and making this one big, extended challenge of physics.”

The actor also talked about how Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) factors into the movie in regards to his relationship with Tony.

“Rhodey is much more in the dead center of things. He’s much more dynamic. We’ve made this decision that while Tony is a technical guy, he’s not really a trained guy. There’s a lot of fun to be had with Don because he’s really good with hardware and he’s a martial artist, so it’s been really fun exploiting this possibility of Tony having moments like the one in Avengers, like the one with Cap where he decides, “Oh screw it, he probably knows what he’s doing.” So there’s a lot of that and a lot more fun and a lot more depth to Rhodey this time around.”

The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, Jon Favreau, and James Badge Dale.

Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd.
