Watch the full official trailer for the Iron Man movie. Robert Downey Jr. plays Iron Man in this comic book adaptation. It’s an inspired choice, as usual, by the Marvel Comics franchise. Except for Ben Affleck as DareDevil. That really stunk.
Just don’t ask how Tony Stark found a flamethrower in captivity. Well, if you insist, he is a world famous scientist and entrepreneur in the comic book. So there, I hope that answers your question.
