Fans were anxious earlier this years when news broke of the films (I kid you not) toilet design, and knowing that the film will open to Iron-vomiting caused many of to speculate that the blockbuster’s follow-up might go for the famous alcoholism storyline, “Demon in a Bottle,” which originally appeared in “Iron Man” issues #120-128 in 1979.
When asked if the film was based on this famous story arc, Downey told MTV News, “Not really.”
“As a matter of fact, I think that’s probably best saved,” said Downey, “ because it’s such its own storyline.”
This matches Jon Favreau’s thoughts last year that, while “Demon in a Bottle” may come one day, it doesn’t need to be in “Iron Man 2”. Hopefully, Downey has quite a few “Iron Man” films ahead of him.
So, what is the storyline, outside major cast additions?
“We’re going for the interim space [between the origin and “Demon”],” explained Downey, “which is more a look behind the mask of someone who says he’s Iron Man and what it really is to become a superhero.”
