Terrence Howard
Terrence Howard has suggested that his "Iron Man" co-star Robert Downey, Jr. failed to stand up for him when movie execs were pushing him out of the film franchise.

Without naming names, Howard talked about the fall-out on "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday night, explaining: "This is gonna get me in trouble, but who gives a f--k. It turns out that the per...

Tony Stark Gets A Much-Needed Dose Of Humility In ‘Iron Man 3’

May 5th, 2013 7:40am EDT
Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 3
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) figures out how to play nice with others in “The Avengers,” but our smug, self-assured hero finally learns humility in Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3.” For the first time Stark can’t come up with all the answers immediately, he’s not always wearing his armor, and he doesn’t have jokes for every occasion. His struggle is actually quite refreshing, and endearing because watching this cocky character become so humbled over the course of Black’s story, is more engaging than any epic act of heroism that Iron Man performs in the film.

Black’s Tony Stark is a darker, mor...
