Robert Downey Jr is the new Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. will star as "Iron Man" in the latest Marvel Comics superhero to hit the big screen. Filming is scheduled to begin in February, with the movie due in theaters in May 2008.

"Downey's versatility sets him apart and makes him an ideal fit to play such a complex character as Iron Man," said Kevin Feige, president of production for Marvel Studios.

"Iron Man" is the story of billionaire industrialist and inventor Tony Stark, who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, he builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes, vowing to protect the world as a superhero.
