Iron Man” relies on the Audi R8

  • New superhero: Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man

  • Technically adept and smart – Tony Stark is unique

  • Safely on the go in the R8, even without his high-tech suit

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark – the main character in the film version of “Iron Man” from Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios. His superpowers are the result of the highly versatile and indestructible high-tech armor that he developed himself. When he is without his suit, the technically-adept billionaire relies on the Audi R8. “The R8 is the perfect car for Tony Stark,” Iron Man director Jon Favreau said. “It’s a technological masterpiece. Plus it’s fast, safe, and sure to be noticed.” The leading lady, Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia “Pepper” Potts), drives an Audi S5 in the film.

Tony Stark is smart, successful and uncompromising. He’s got ideas – and the courage and skill to make them reality. And naturally he puts his extraordinary capabilities to work for the good of mankind – in the form of Iron Man, his superhero alter ego. No other comic book hero has such extensive knowledge of technology or of the opportunities offered by innovation and cutting-edge ideas. The movie opens in theaters around the world in early May 2008.

The film also stars Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges. “Iron Man“ is directed by Jon Favreau from a screenplay by Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. The film is produced by Avi Arad and Kevin Feige. Executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Peter Billingsley, Jon Favreau, Stan Lee and David Maisel.

Sounds like a Cool UP-Coming Movie! 2000AD meets, Batman for Generation I. What next Blade Part IV: Blade fights Alien Vampires on Mars riding a Solar energy Powered Harley...No! OK, how about Superman 2050, the Man of Steel & Fusion. Our Heroe, transports a carefully chosen few back to the Planet Krypton on a Starship, designed with the aid of Captain J Travolta. Due to the choking smog and polluted Seas and Skies on Planet Earth? Getting a bit Nightmarishly Chilling now,eh? Well I guess the TIME is NOW & we really need Humanity to put on their Thinking Caps & solve some very hard but real problems for our Environment, Ourselves and the Future Generation. Any way the Flu-remedy is wearing off and I must be getting back to Jupiter...

the R8 is perfect for the movie, but it is going to be more perfect if the car comes modified using hi tech gadget and aero kit body, will it going to appear in an action scene or just a sweet fly by?
