Iron Man’s Jeff Bridges Explains Why Filming The Marvel Movie Drove Him ‘Crazy’

In 2008 the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn’t the ultimate universe of superhero movies and TV shows it is today; it was, as Nick Fury put it in The Avengers, simply an idea. Making Iron Man, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jeff Bridges, was a risk. Bridges has even said the process of making the film drove him a little “crazy” because of how much reworking everyone had to do on the film come time for production. 

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Bridges, who played Tony Stark’s business-partner-turned-villain Obadiah Stane, spoke about how in pre-production he worked with director Jon Favreau and Downey to rework and rehearse the Iron Man script and they wanted to “fix this,” “fix that.” By the first day of shooting the studio scrapped their ideas and made them go back to the old script, causing the cast and crew to scramble when they began shooting. 

There was a lot of confusion over what we were going to say [in the movie]. And we’d spend hours in one of our trailers going over lines, and saying ‘Oh you play my part or I’ll play your part,’ exploring how we’re gonna do it. Jon would say, ‘Oh, I know a writer. Let me see, he might have some ideas…’ Meanwhile, the crew is in the sound stage, you know, tapping their feet saying ‘When are we gonna get this thing going?’
