Avengers: Infinity War is arguably the most anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe film of all time, so what could possibly beat seeing it opening weekend? How about joining Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., in Hollywood, California on April 23rd for the world premiere?
Downey Jr. dropped a new video on his Twitter account today announcing the opportunity for two lucky fans to be his guests at the Infinity War premiere. To enter, you simply need to donate ten dollars to support the ROHHAD Association, an association dedicated to funding and promoting research that will treat and cure ROHHAD, a rare syndrome in children that causes weight gain, breathing difficulties, and other issues. It’s a noble cause, and as RDJ says in the video, the more money you donate, the greater the chance you have to win.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.

Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

10 Characters Gary Oldman Could Play In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Recently, Gary Oldman teased that he would be interested in a role in a Marvel film. Having won an Academy award this year for his role as Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, there is no doubt that Oldman is a masterful actor. He is no stranger to the big budget blockbuster world either, with memorable turns as Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, the human villain Dreyfus in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films. It would serve Marvel Studios well to add him to their ranks.
An actor of Oldman’s caliber could easily fit in anywhere within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He could pull off a number of supporting roles, such as Sue and Johnny’s father, Franklin Storm; a new take on a minor X-Men foe we’ve seen before, like William Stryker or Bolivar Trask; a somewhat older version of a legacy character who passes his mantle on to a younger hero, such as Nova or Quasar; or even another Elder of the Universe to join The Collector and The Grandmaster. However, in lieu of just signing him up for anyone and everyone, we decided to determine the ten characters he might be best suited for, in case Marvel Studios decides to make the call.
One last note before we begin, this list not only includes characters Marvel Studios already owns the rights to, as well as Spider-Man characters that Sony could potentially lend them for a solo Spidey film, but we’re also including characters currently owned by 21st Century Fox. If the proposed Disney/Fox deal goes through, Marvel will not hesitate to incorporate the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and all of their villains into their universe. With this now being within the realm of possibilty, there’s no reason not to include these characters on this list. Also, there are so few characters that Marvel has owned all this time that they have yet to introduce in their universe, whether it be in film or on television, so there are actually far more Fox-owned characters that make more sense for this list.
So, without further ado, here are the 10 Marvel roles that we think Gary Oldman should play in the MCU…
