Don Cheadle Promises More Action in 'Iron Man 3'

Jan 17, 2012

More action is a very good thing. I’ve fallen asleep watching the last two ‘Iron Man’ films. I admit it. Hopefully, I’ll be able to stay awake through ‘Iron Man 3′ with all the action Don Cheadle is talking about for the third installment in the franchise.

“I have to shoot ‘Iron Man 3’ in May,” he told Access Hollywood recently as he promoted his hot cable show, which he stars in and executive produces. “It’s manageable. I can juggle it, so I’m good.”

The actor confirmed he has “seen a version of the script,” but joked it needed a little work.

“What did you think of it?” Access asked.

“I wasn’t in it enough, so they’re going to have to [go back to] the drawing board,” he said, tongue-in-cheek.

As for his real thoughts on the upcoming Marvel project, Don said – compared to the first two installments – this one is even more exciting.

“This one’s a lot more — the one I saw anyway, and it’ll change [in] five months, it’ll change a lot — but it’s a lot more, it’s more action packed,” Don told Access. “It’s crazy, it is though, it’s a lot more fun. I think the interplay between [Robert Downey Jr.’s] character and my character… My character is a lot more dynamic, so I’m looking forward to it.”

Yes! Thank you. I love Robert Downey Jr. and all, but I just need more action from Iron Man 3. Maybe they should add more Misty Knight? I’m fangirling out. Either way, I’m glad to see Don Cheadle is returning. I do think he and Robert Downey Jr. get along really well onscreen so… Once again, I’m good!

What do you think? Is there enough action in the films or could they use a little more kick ass in their lives?
