In an article previewing the upcoming ComicCon slate, Entertainment Weeklyprovides a brand new photo of Robert Downey Jr. testing out his super cool glove (or gauntlet, as I believe it's referred to) in the upcoming Iron Man flick. Downey Jr. will be in attendance this year at San Diego ComicCon, along with Iron Man director Jon Favreau. And seeing how Favreau has been reaching out to fans throughout the film's production, I wouldn't be surprised if the Iron Man panel is one of the most enjoyable parts of the geeked-up weekend. Look for more stills to be released, as well as (we hope) a possible teaser trailer.
Another pretty cool Iron Man-related piece of entertainment I scoped out earlier today was a video Downey Jr. and Favreau made just after filming was complete. Some of you might be aware that Favreau used to host a show called Dinner for Five on the IFC Channel awhile back. In it, Favreau would sit down for a very informal talk (over dinner in a different Los Angeles restaurant each week) with a table full of actors, actresses and filmmakers. If you haven't yet checked out the show, all four seasons are now available on DVD. And that's where this new Iron Man talk comes into play. As part of the promotional material behind that Dinner for Five DVD, Favreau sat down and filmed a Dinner for Two (minus the dinner) with Downey Jr. The video can be found on the DVD's Amazon page, and in it the two discuss filming Iron Man, as well as some of Downey Jr.'s other classic roles. Surprisingly, the actor lists Weird Science as being one of his top three roles, along with Chaplin and, of course, Iron Man. He also tells a pretty funny Rodney Dangerfield story too. So check out the pic, check out the EW article and check out the video. Look for Cinematical's coverage of this year's San Diego ComicCon to invade your computer screen beginning next week.
