One of the things that interests me about super-hero stories is the duality of their identity. Who is the real identity: Spider-Man or Peter Parker? Superman or Clark Kent? Batman or Bruce Wayne? Each time a writer climbs on board for a stint on one of these comics or a director starts a new film, that duality gets a new exploration, with different answers developing over time. But what about Tony Stark, Iron Man, who doesn't have the split identity issues of other super-heroes? That difference about Tony Stark is exactly what Justin Theroux, scriptwriter for Iron Man 2, who told MTV's Splash Page that the lack of a dual nature will be a fundamental part of the second film. After all, Tony Stark is the first mainstream hero to have a movie where the main character isn't hiding his identity. There's no ducking into a closet/telephone booth/ whatever »
