For Marvel fans as well as many viewers around the world, it’s probably hard to imagine anyone else playing the role of Iron Man other than Robert Downey Jr. This actor has been with Iron Man since the first days, in 2008, and spent more than a decade to complete his journey emotionally in Avengers: Endgame. But on the contrary, if you do not become a multi-talented billionaire Tony Stark. Which role will Robert be most interested in in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, the actor had to share frankly when a fan asked about this issue. He said: “He believes that any boy born in the United States once dreamed of becoming Spider-Man. The same goes for him. But now that I think about it, I’m a huge Jeremy Renner fan, and he’s really cool, especially when I became a Ronin in Avengers: Endgame. So I thought I would play Hawkeye if I didn’t become Iron Man”.
In a parallel universe, if not able to become Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. want to try out the role of Hawkeye.
Besides, Robert Downey Jr. also had to go through sweaty moments with a series of oathful questions from the little fans. Here, he had to admit he owned a pair of Iron Man underwear, and often wore it whenever he felt bored or lacked confidence in himself. However, no matter how much he likes it, our actors never wear it for 2 days in a row to ensure personal hygiene (although there are underwear models on the market today that allow you to wear them continuously for weeks without the need to wash already).
Another noteworthy detail is that Robert spent a lot of time practicing in front of the mirror of three scenes to prepare for the audition for Iron Man (two of which were included in the official release in 2008. ). No matter how hard he tried, he always felt that he could not have the confident, charismatic attitude like Tony Stark, and the prospect of “knocking” the shoulders was very close. But after all, Robert became an irreplaceable Iron Man on the big screen. Many viewers even commented that basically, he and Tony Stark are one, whether in movies or in real life, it makes no difference.
Robert Downey Jr. admits he owns the Iron Man underwear and occasionally uses it.
After leaving the roof of Marvel Studios, Robert Downey Jr. are extremely busy with a lot of personal projects. His first movie in the post-MCU era, DoLittle, premiered on January 25. Although it has not received positive reviews from professionals, this is still an entertaining work, especially suitable for young children. In addition, Robert also takes on The Age of A.I series on YouTube, where he shares his information and thoughts about the development of artificial intelligence.
On the other hand, Marvel quickly overcome the shock after the departure of Iron Man to continue the new journey of the MCU. Black Widow will be the opening name for phase 4 of this cinema universe and will officially be released on April 30. Then on November 6, the audience will be able to see The Eternals for the first time on the big screen. In addition, Marvel has also deployed three long-running series on the Disney + platform, including The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki, which will launch in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
