Robert Downey Jr. is undeniably famous for his Iron Man role in Marvel Studios.
However, now that he has put on Iron Man’s armor, the superstar now seems to be moving towards rival comics group DC Comics.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Iron Man star and his wife Susan Downey are gearing up to produce an eight-episode live-action adaption of the DC Comics/Vertigo series titled Sweet Tooth which will be launched on Netflix.
The report further details that Christian Conville, Nosso Arnolds, Ade Akhtar and Will Ford will star in the series, and James Brolin uses his voice as the show ’s Narrator.
From September 2009 to 2013, the series has been published for 40 issues, written by Jeff Lemire. The official profile of sweet tooth is as follows:
“After being raised in total isolation, Gus – a boy born with deer-like antlers – is left to survive in an American landscape devastated a decade earlier by an inexplicable pandemic. Even more remarkable is that Gus is part of a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children who have emerged in its wake, all apparently immune to the infection. Enter Jepperd, a violent, hulking drifter who soon takes in Gus and promises to lead him to “The Preserve,” a fabled safe-haven for hybrid children. Along the way they’ll have to contend with science militias, deadly scavengers, rival bounty hunters, and hybrid worshipping cultists as they fight to make it to safety and solve the mysteries of this deadly new frontier.”
