He added, “He had to find an inner balance to overcome obstacles that went far beyond his career. That’s Tony Stark.”

He also said, “Everybody knew he was talented… Certainly by studying the Iron Man role and developing that script I realised that the character seemed to line-up with Robert in all the good and bad ways. And the story of Iron Man was really the story of Robert’s career.”
