IRON MAN 2 (2010)

Tony Stark, Happy Hogan and friends

The second film followed up Iron Man’s $585m triumph with a dart back in time into Tony Stark’s troubled past. There was exuberance, but now it was the lopsided, hiccuping kind as RDJ’s superhero tried to salve his soul – and a body being poisoned by the arc reactor that saved him – with booze. On set, the skyrocketing confidence of cast and crew was kept in check by a fear of laziness creeping in and a collective dropping of the Iron-ball. “Could we have skated through a sequel?,” wondered Robert Downey Jr. rhetorically. “Would it have made the same numbers? Yes, sure. And that annoyed me. We had to earn it twice as much this time.”
