JON FAVREAU on TONY STARK (played by Robert Downey Jr.):

“Tony’s expected to be a role model and I don’t think he’s ready to be one. He’s under a great deal of pressure and when you’re under pressure, I think you find outlets for that.”

Probably alluding to the characters on-again / off-again battle with alcoholism as portrayed in the Iron Man comic book…

MICKEY ROURKE on what to expect from his character Whiplash:

“…my Iron Man suit weighs 23lb. It’s sort of a half-suit, with half my skin showing, with lots of Russian tattoos, because [Whiplash is just] out of a Russian-zone prison.”
