For years, Robert Downey Jr. had it made (still does, but I digress). Known all over the world as genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr. and his spot-on performance captured the attention, affection, and admiration of fans from all backgrounds, with all areas of interest. Now, with his character dead and his tenure with Marvel Studios over, the celebrated actor has moved on. Now, he wants Ironheart to join the MCU.
He recently addressed his life after Iron Man in an illuminating interview. During this interview, conducted by Off-Camera With Sam Jones, Robert Downey Jr. discussed his post-MCU life and how safe he was, saying:
Robert Downey Jr. continued by stressing the separation of art from artist, remarking:
Clearly Robert Downey Jr. wants his characters to resonate with people, but he also wants his fans to recognize and respect that separation. But he still loves the franchise and his co-stars, even going so far as to build Chris Evans a Captain America Camaro.
And, to top things off, here’s some very good news for you: The actor isn’t done with comic book adaptions. One of Robert Downey Jr.’s newer projects is another comic-to-screen translation, this time of Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth, which Hulu picked up recently. His wife, producer Susan Downey, will assist in the production.
