RDJ on the cover of GQ

"This is the one superhero role Downey was born for." – GQ "Robert Downey Jr. as an armored super hero plus Black Sabbath's 'Iron Man' on the soundtrack more than likely equals genius." -- Blender "Iron Man is a shapely piece of mythmaking." – New York Magazine "Snapping off lines as crisply as Bugs Bunny might bite into a carrot, the sculpture-bearded Downey invigorates the entire proceedings in a way no other actor ever has in this field." – Variety "…the whole package is distinctly its own, a tale originated in the '60s cleverly and logically transposed into today's world." – Hollywood Reporter 3 ½ STARS (out of 4) "Iron Man kicks off summer on a blazing high note and practically dares the competition to measure up. It's been years since a movie superhero was this fierce and this funny." – Rolling Stone

Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover of Vogue

"…when Jon called me about Iron Man, I thought, This is the kind of cast I dream of working with, and I could go back to work and not work five days a week. It was the perfect, perfect, perfect job for me." Gwyneth Paltrow talks about "Iron Man," her life, and more at Vogue.com, with an exclusive "Iron Man" themed photo gallery. "Downey plays off his own bad-boy image wonderfully. The writers give him great lines to work with and ditto that for his Girl Friday, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, whose own svelte lines cannot be improved on." – Hollywood Reporter 3 ½ STARS (out of 4) "…Iron Man has pretty much everything you could want in a summer blockbuster: awesome special effects, jaw-dropping action scenes, plus a sense of humor and compelling story that make this much more than eye candy." -- Life and Style

Terrence Howard on the cover of Giant

Giant magazine catches up with Terrence Howard. "...thus far most of what we've seen of "Iron Man" has gotten we, the die-hards, pretty pumped." -- MTV Movies Blog "I love how Iron Man enthusiasm is transcending all demographics." -- USA Today Blog

RDJ as Tony Stark on the cover of Empire

"…the role of Stark fits Downey Jr like a titanium-alloy, servo-assisted glove, the back-from-the-brink actor veering nimbly between the swaggering and sensitive sides of his character, never mistiming a wisecrack." -- Empire "...the film is very well done, it is very entertaining and with a very good story, and it is well supported with excellent special effects." -- IESB.net "...Robert Downey Jr.'s hard rockin' Iron Man looks like it might be a special effects, comics showcase with brains, for a change." -- Box Office Mojo

RDJ on the cover of Parade

Parade magazine chats it up with leading man Robert Downey, Jr. "I really believe that we have the makings of a new, hot superhero franchise." -- Screen Rant "...when it's all said and done, Iron Man will go down as this summer's best blockbuster." -- Cinematical.com
