J.J. Abrams worked on script for Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr. spills the beans

J.J. Abrams has his fingers in many pies, and those pies now include the latest Iron Man movie, at least according to Robert Downey Jr. anyway.

Downey has revealed that Abrams acted as an occasional consultant on the movie when he and director Shane Black would find themselves in need of an outside opinion, particularly when figuring out the final act.

“There were a couple times in Iron Man 3 where our lifeline was we'd call Jon Favreau. [Favreau] reached out to Shane a bunch, particularly in the first Iron Man," says Downey. “Then we reached out to J.J. Abrams at one point when we were really confused in Act III, and he helped us, too.”

Star Trek, Star Wars and now the Marvel Universe… is there no sci-fi / fantasy property that Abrams doesn’t have any ideas about?

Directed by Black and co-starring Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, Iron Man 3 will open in the UK on 25 April 2013, a day earlier than previously planned.

      Thank God it wasn't Damon Lindof. You'd end up with a load of bolloques happening for no reason. "But its a mysterious, it doesn't need answers!" Fuq off.

      News? Just take is as law that Abrams has input into every piece of fiction currently being written. He had a hand in the second draft of my best man speech!
