Un paio di anni fa Robert Downey Jr. si era pronunciato sulla possibilità di un quarto capitolo di Iron Man: sì, no, forse sì, forse no, forse sarebbe meglio se la parte andasse a qualcun altro. Nel 2014, insomma, il futuro dei film da solista del personaggio era incerto e lo è tuttora, fatta eccezione per il recente commento dell’attore che si dice pronto a girare Iron Man 4.
“Credo che potrei farne un altro”, ha dichiarato Downey Jr., che al momento veste i panni di Tony Stark da otto anni. Lo abbiamo visto nei capitoli standalone, nelle pellicole sugli Avengers, in Civil War, lo vedremo in Spider-Man: Homecoming e Infinity War I e II. Lo vedremo, a questo punto, in Iron Man 4. Se tutto va come deve andare.
I film Marvel Studios/Disney sono fittamente calendarizzati fino al 2020. L’inserimento della trilogia Batman firmata da Ben Affleck – anche se nel mondo antagonista Dc Comics – provano però che nulla è scritto nella pietra. È lecito aspettarsi, insomma, un possibile annuncio sul terzo sequel delle vicende dell’Avenger miliardario.
Dopo che Robert Downey Jr. ha annunciato l’inizio della produzione entro fine anno, la Warner Bros, ha ora ingaggiato un nuovo sceneggiatore per Sherlock Holmes 3.
Dopo che Robert Downey Jr. ha annunciato l’inizio della produzione entro fine anno, la Warner Bros, ha ora ingaggiato un nuovo sceneggiatore per Sherlock Holmes 3: si tratta di James Coyne (Puncture Wounds, Vikingdom), che riscriverà lo script precedentemente realizzato da Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3), ingaggiato nel 2011.
Il terzo film della serie verrà nuovamente diretto da Guy Ritchie (UNCLE e già regista dei precedenti film di Sherlock Holmes), oltre che il ritorno delle stelle del frachise Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) e Jude Law (Dr. John Watson).
Entrambi i film precedenti, Sherlock Holmes (2009) e Sherlock Holmes- Gioco di Ombre (2011) hanno incassato entrambi più di mezzo miliardo in tutto il mondo.
Sherlock Holmes: EXCLUSIVE: Downey Jr. confirms Sherlock Holmes 3 shooting this year
EXCLUSIVE: Downey Jr. confirms Sherlock Holmes 3 shooting this year
In an exclusive interview with ShortList, Robert Downey Jr. said he and director Guy Ritchie, who directed the first two instalments of Sherlock Holmes, would be starting work on a third film before the end of the year.
“We’re talking about it right now,” said the actor. "We can do some preliminary stuff.”
He admitted that their busy schedules caused the delay in following up 2011’s A Game of Shadows, which saw Holmes fake his death after a fight with his nemesis Moriarty.
“If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week,” he admitted. “When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. [So] we’ll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m so excited about it."
The scampish star also let slip to ShortList he would be in the UK as part of the promotional tour for Captain America: Civil War, and was looking forward to discussing Holmes with Ritchie as part of his trip to London.
“He’ll say ‘I’ll meet you on my bike’, all that sort of macho stuff,” he said. “I’ve always considered riding a bike in London as taking your life in your own hands. Guy makes it look easy.”
Captain America: Civil War sees former allies Tony Stark and Steve Rogers come to blows over government plans to curb the Avengers’ vigilante behaviour by making them work for the UN. Trailers have shown the pair leading their own factions of Marvel characters – including Black Widow, Vision, Hawkeye and Falcon – into a huge battle.
Downey Jr. praised the new additions to the Marvel universe – including Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland as Spider-man, saying “I have so much admiration for everybody.
“[Boseman] is a really big deal. Softly spoken, but extremely dynamic. And that takes nothing away from [Anthony] Mackie [The Falcon], who knows how to hold court.”
Jude News: JL on the 'chalk and cheese dynamic' of Thomas Wolfe and Max Perkins
Genius: Jude Law on the 'chalk and cheese dynamic' of Thomas Wolfe and Max Perkins
Directed by Michael Grandage, Genius (out June 10) centers on the friendship and professional relationship between Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law), the esteemed and charismatic American author behind Look Homeward, Angel, and Of Time and the River, and Max Perkins (Colin Firth), a senior editor at Scribner’s Sons in the late 1920s who saw potential in Wolfe’s work when others passed. Through Wolfe and Perkins, the drama reveals the process behind making books — but that process was not so easy to realize on screen.
“You don’t want to sit there watching people write or watching people paint, you want to see the painting or read the book,” Law explains, but the film found its approach. “What we’ve done, which is so interesting, is physicalized the process and physicalized the relationship of one person creating, the other person receiving and translating, and so the relationship becomes a physical embodiment of the process and creativity.”
Law, who previously worked with Grandage on stage productions of Henry V and Hamlet, characterizes the relationship of Wolfe and Perkins, which had “a huge amount on the page” in its script by John Logan that’s based on the book by A. Scott Berg, as being made up of two very different parts. So during rehearsal, Law wondered if he was doing too much, and if Firth felt like he was doing too little, but realized, “In fact, what we felt was the chalk and cheese dynamic, really what was at the heart of their friendship.”
Going into production, Law had an admiration for Firth’s work and an excitement to finally collaborate. “He is indeed as charming and as joyful to be around and as entertaining and as smart and funny, so there was also a natural pupil-teacher, father-son, brother relationship, which came out of our own relationship.” As for other actors, Law reunites with Nicole Kidman, who plays Aline Bernstein, a costume designer and Wolfe’s lover. “I don’t think I’ve worked with someone braver,” he says of his Cold Mountain costar.
Guy Pearce and Dominic West are also in the drama, assuming the roles of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, respectively, whom Perkins also edited. “They’re playing two of the literary world’s biggest figures [and] they do a phenomenal job,” Law says. “You need the reference of Fitzgerald and Hemingway because, first of all, [Perkins] contributed to them too, but also to give a sense of how highly Wolfe was regarded in such an extraordinary landscape of writers at the time.”
The film, of course, addresses that extraordinary landscape of writers, and their artistic reputations. “In a way, the very name of the film raises the question of ‘What is genius?’ Genius comes in many guises and places,” Law explains. “I think it’s an overused word, but equally you could argue it’s an underused word. The genius in this piece is the relationships and the combination of people working together, as well as the individual genius that maybe each man or each woman has.”
As for Wolfe’s genius, “There’s something very clear about his infectiousness and his vitality and his enthusiasm, but equally … it’s temporary,” Law says. “He was temporary. He died very young. He was on the one hand a genius, but on the other maniacal and driven because he knew his time was short.”

Colin Firth On ‘Genius’, Repression And Maybe Shedding Suits For A Mankini – Berlin
Tony-winning theater director Michael Grandage arrived in Berlin today for the world premiere of his first feature effort, Genius. In tow were screenwriter John Logan and stars Colin Firth, Jude Law, Laura Linney and Guy Pearce. Based on A Scott Berg’s book, Max Perkins: Editor Of A Genius, it tells the story of a life-changing friendship that developed between literary lion Thomas Wolfe and respected literary editor Perkins who also first published Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Firth plays Perkins, and at this afternoon’s press conference here, said it was a challenge “taking a character like that and pitting him against someone whose every move is so completely contrary,” speaking of Jude Law’s Wolfe.
But the buttoned-up Perkins, “is not the first time I’ve played rather a strange man in a suit,” Firth added. The star of The King’s Speech, A Single Man and Kingsman: The Secret Service later noted, “The suit is the costume. I put it on. If someone wants me to wear a mankini in a film, I’m available… I’m ready to burst out of a cake,” he said to a delighted press corps.
More seriously, he continued, “You’d be surprised how much variation I can find within the confines of a suit… I find repression really interesting because I think there’s an awful lot going on inside there. Mystery is fascinating in all art forms.”
