With the release of the final amazing trailer for Iron Man 3, it's been a big fun news day for the movie. We've now got another really cool bit of information to share with you about the film, that you might be interested in knowing. Robert Downey Jr. reveals that at one point during production Marvel turned to Star Trek director J.J. Abrams to help out with the film. Here's what he revealed to IGN,
There were a couple times in Iron Man 3 where our lifeline was we’d call Jon Favreau. 'What do we do?' He’d be like, 'Stick with this. Stick with the love story,' or whatever. Then he’d say, 'Wait, didn’t we used to do this same thing with Shane?' Because we reached out to Shane a bunch, particularly in the first Iron Man.
Then I think we reached out to J.J. Abrams at one point when we were really confused in Act III, and he helped us, too. It’s just interesting. Usually you think, in the legacy of filmmakers that come and go, there’s something so evocative about how strange it is that this particular strain of the Marvel universe was so successful, so what are the reasons for that and how do we keep that vital and just have fun?
So if you end up liking how the third act of Iron Man 3 plays out, then it looks like you can thank Abrams for helping them out with it. It seems like Abrams is in with Marvel now, too, it would be interesting to see if he ever ends up taking on one of these Marvel movies.
