Robert Downey Jr. On Chris Evans, Downside of Playing Iron Man And Avengers: Age of Ultron


During an Q&A with Variety, Robert Downey Jr. discussed the perks and disadvantages of playing Marvel's Iron Man, recalled urging Chris Evans to play Captain America, and also praised The Avengers: Age of Ultron script. “There was so much riding on (playing the part of) what essentially could be considered the squarest superhero in history,” said Downey of why he, too, urged the hesitent Evans to play Steve Rogers. “It was probably the most risky of the franchises we launched.

I hope it’s not watermarked too heavily.”
