Favreau signed on as director in April 2006, and faced opposition from Marvel when attempting to cast Downey in the title role; the actor was signed in September. Filming befell from March to June 2007, primarily in California to differentiate the movie from quite a few different superhero stories which might be set in New York Metropolis-esque environments.

Rubber and steel variations of the armor, created by Stan Winston's company, were combined with computer-generated imagery to create the title character.
