It's Tony Stark Vs. Dublin In Eoin Colfer's New Iron Man Novel

Eoin_ColferWe told you that the new Iron Man novel by Eoin Colfer  would be set in Ireland. Which was enough, it seems, for the Irish press to get in touch and ask him more…

He told RTE that he has set the story in Dublin – indeed, being set in Ireland was a condition for him writing the book.



"I was looking around Ireland looking for landmarks and I thought of the Convention Centre. So that is completely destroyed in the story. I thought it would be a fantastic crucible, so I filled it with flames and blew it up. And the Samuel Beckett Bridge is gone as well.

"But what I really like about bringing Tony Stark to Dublin is the lack of respect he would get in Dublin. When he's in California it's like, 'O my god, it's Iron Man,' but when it's in Dublin it's like, 'Will you look at yer man with the suit.' I thought that would be great, but we will have to see how it will go down."

Wonder if he'll bump into all the other folks playing Starks while filming Game Of Thrones there…
