We’ve already done a “Cast a Green Lantern movie” thread, so I thought it would be only fair to cast another moderately popular superhero movie…Iron Man.
Now, for Iron Man/Tony Stark himself, I’m thinking either Tom Hanks or George Clooney. Probably Clooney, because Hanks would never do it in a million years.
And with a turn of the “Big Wheel’O’Stark’s Love Interests,” I’d pick said love interest as being…Julia “Spiderwoman” Carpenter. I’d probably want to cast Megan Follows or **
** in this role, just to see if I could pull it off. But that’d probably never go over well, so…I dunno, Linda Hamilton, maybe?
Come to think of it, it might be best to either do the armor scenes fully CGI, or do them as partially CGI over body doubles who are fairly taller and brawnier than the characters “inside” the suits…kinda reinforcing the bulk of the armor.
Fight choreography will be something that’ll need special attention…we wouldn’t want this turning into yet another “Matrix” clone. Stark’s not a martial artist (at least, not in the timeframe of the movie) he’s an engineer in a suit of powered armor. He wouldn’t be doing flip-kicks, he’d just use raw, lumbering, mechanical strength. With some flying, and a fair amount of car-throwing.
The villain would be a little problematic, too…maybe if we made The Mandarin some kind of rogue North Korean general, or some such, and “adjusted” the name. Or just forgot about him entirely, and used the Crimson Dynamo and/or the Titanium Man.
