Robert Downey Jr. leads the drama as hotshot attorney Hank Palmer, who returns to his childhood home after the death of his mother. When he gets home, he discovers that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), an esteemed judge, has been accused of murder. Watch The Judge trailer after the jump.

Robert Downey Jr. will be Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he’ll probably show up in Avengers 3. But right now he says there’s no plan for Iron Man 4.
Why not? Marvel’s movie plans are getting bigger and weirder. As the Guardians of the Galaxy explode in popularity, new characters such as Vision are prepped for launch next year. Captain America will get a third film, but pretty soon Marvel is going to be busy launching new characters such as Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. Which means that there is less room for a sequel like Iron Man 4. Read Downey’s quote below. Read More »

If we had any complaint about the first Avengers, it was that there wasn’t nearly enough of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk or Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Fortunately, Kevin Feige has already promised to remedy that lack in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the latest batch of images indicate that he plans to deliver.
Hulk and Hawkeye figure prominently in these new stills, along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and the guy who bosses them all around. No, not Nick Fury. Director Joss Whedon.
Take a peek at the new Avengers Age of Ultron images, and read Whedon’s comments on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor, after the jump.

Here are the facts when it comes to Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man. The trilogy of films concluded with Iron Man 3, and he began renegotiating his contract with Marvel. That contract was then revealed to be only for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers 3, but not Iron Man 4. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige long discussed the potential of recasting the role too. But, over the past two years, Downey has been the highest paid actor in Hollywood, earning $75 million per year. That’s a tough number to ignore and now, a new quote leaves the door open for Downey to return for Iron Man 4. Read More »

Long before Robert Downey Jr. was a massive box office star and superhero, he starred in smaller, character based films. With all the Tony Stark flair these days, it’s almost hard to remember the days of Chaplin, Only You, and Heart and Souls. And his next film, which we’ll see before he again joins the Avengers, is back in that genre. Even more so, he produced this one with his wife, Susan Downey.
The film is called The Judge, and it opens on October 10. Downey plays a hotshot lawyer (or, so there’s some Tony Stark there) who returns to his hometown only to find his father, played by Robert Duvall, accused of murder. Directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), the impressive cast also includes Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dax Shephard, Balthazar Getty, David Krumholtz, Leighton Meester and a few Oscar-winners in Billy Bob Thornton and Melissa Leo.
The first trailer for The Judge is now out. Check it out below. Read More »

Thought Tony Stark had daddy issues? At least Howard Stark isn’t around to bother him anymore. That’s sadly not the case for Robert Downey Jr. in The Judge, the new drama by David Dobkin.
Downey plays a Chicago defense attorney who returns home for his mom’s funeral, and then sticks around to defend his dad (Robert Duvall) in a murder trial. That’d be a tough situation in the best of cases, but it’s complicated further by the old hostility between father and son. Check out The Judge first-look image after the jump.
