Los Angeles, April 20 (IANS) Robert Downey Jr. entered the realm of superheroes on the silver screen as Iron Man and the actor says he never gets tired of wearing the suit as he has “come to love it”.
Downey Jr. was appreciated as the American superhero in the “Iron Man” trilogy. The trilogy might be over, but Iron Man still lives on the big screen through “The Avengers” series.
Downey Jr. will be making his comeback as the superhero with the release of “Captain America: Civil War”. The film also features Chris Evans as Captain America.
When asked about wearing the suit again, he said that he has nothing to complain about and absolutely loves the suit.
“Well, what I realised is that there is safety, fun and relief in numbers. For instance I am sure Chris could tell you that he’s in every shot of movie practically, now I am on the poster, but still whenever you put the suit on and they have improved it over time,” Downey Jr. said in a statement.
“I thought rather than do that typical thing that most fortunate people complaining about their circumstances, I have come to love the suit,” he added. Downey Jr. revealed his inclination towards the suit in the video of the making of the Disney and Marvel film.
He also shared that he often sees things from a child’s eye view given the immense popularity of the superheroes amongst the younger audience.
He said: “I do (look at thing from child’s view) also now there are kids visiting the sets for a bunch of reasons and back on the second ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. We did before this, my son Axen was visiting the sets and he was going bananas from the hawk eye stuff and he is kind of over it now because he knows dad’s deeply invested in it so it’s a little bit less luminous to him now.”
The actor also asked fans of the superhero film to brace up as he said “expect the unexpected” from “Captain America: Civil War”. The superhero team-up movie is scheduled to release in US and India on May 6.
