It’s been almost 10 years since Robert Downey Jr. first debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Iron Man/Tony Stark. Nearly a decade later, one of the most recognizable superhero faces says he keeps coming back because of “well thought out” films.
When Cinema Blend caught up to Downey Jr. at a press conference, they asked him what keeps coming back to star in Marvel films (besides the paycheck of course). This is what he had to say:
What happens to me is that things are presented to me that are really well thought out by folks that have been doing this correctly for a really long time, and I go like, ‘Check.’
It’s no real surprise that having a well thought out film is a draw for an actor, and it sounds as if RDJ is satisfied with the quality the MCU offers fans and actors alike.
Although Downey Jr. won’t return for a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, he’ll fly into Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4.
Until then, you can next catch Downey Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters soon.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer).
