Dir. Jon Favreau. US, 2008, 126 mins. With Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Jon Favreau, Terrence Howard, Gwenyth Paltrow. Robert Downey Jr. stars as Tony Stark, a self-styled billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist whose work as a defense contractor puts him in the crosshairs of terrorists intent on using his engineering genius to build weapons. Kidnapped and held in captivity, Stark uses their tech to build a mechanized suit of armor, freeing himself, and in turn, becoming the superhero Iron Man. Jon Favreau’s exhilarating and witty mega-blockbuster was the first building block in what would become the Marvel cinematic universe.
