LISTEN: Robert Downey Jr. says it was a 'no-brainer' to star in Oppenheimer

Robert Downey Jr. says it was a 'no-brainer' to star in #Oppenheimer 

“I had been cooling my heels for about a year ... because I had been working super consistently. But this was Christopher Nolan, doing something that was important to him. The cast was this large gathering of folks who have their choice of projects. And just as soon as we were underway, world events lined up in a way that turned this movie into an important metaphor that could speak to any number of things"

Going forward with a third Sherlock Holmes always struck me as a no-brainer, and I can only assume that it was Downey Jr.’s schedule that prevented that from happening any sooner. The two-film saga may have been somewhat sold as “Sherlock Holmes… to the Extreme!!!,” but they mostly erred on the side of being actual Holmes stories with a bit more action and spectacle. The 2009 blockbuster was very much a character-driven Holmes mystery, and I will argue that Downey Jr. darn well deserved that “Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical” Golden Globe.

Robert Downey Jr., who rose to fame as Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a reputation for giving standout performances on the big screen. After bidding farewell to the MCU as the beloved ‘Tony Stark’, the 58-year-old actor talked about his decision and motivation to get cast in the upcoming biopic film, Oppenheimer. In the film, which stars Cillian Murphy as the lead character, Downey Jr. will be seen in a pivotal role. The actor, who plays Lewis Strauss, explains why it was so special to work on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming biographical thriller film. He also added that he viewed this as a chance to push himself both professionally and personally.

Robert Downey Jr., who stars in Christopher Nolan’s epic biopic Oppenheimer, recently explains why it was so special to film the movie.

After producing The Dark Knight trilogy, which features arguably the most iconic cinematic portrayal of Batman, Nolan moves on to a complicated historical figure. He is now prepared to recount the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the man who invented the created the first nuclear weapons.

Given that Nolan is known for pushing the envelope when it comes to using IMAX technology, the cast of Oppenheimer, including Downey, had a very real IMAX experience. A Game of Shadows, released in 2011, was a more frantic and less enjoyable effort. The Holmes/Watson chemistry, which made the first film sing, was a bit soured as the movie threatened to enter “I wish Holmes would just leave Watson the heck alone” territory. But Jared Harris made a fantastic Moriarty. The sequel’s first and last reels (the prologue and the finale), along with any sequences where Harris and Downey squared off, were pretty terrific.

But Warner Bros. hasn’t been trying to make a third film for the last five years because they were relatively good popcorn entertainments
