Actor Robert Downey Jr tried the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe motion pictures for 10 years and more from the Iron Man in 2008 to Russo Brothers directorial Avengers: Endgame which turned out in the long stretch of April this year.
The Russo Brothers have once again publicly backed Robert Downey Jr for an Oscar nomination for his display in their directorial Avengers: Endgame. Downey Jr donned the role of Tony Stark a businessman, intelligent inventor, superhero, and CEO of Stark Industries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe motion pictures for over 10 years from Iron Man in 2008 to Endgame prior this year.
While talking to the media in a conference Russo told, “We don’t make films for prizes or nominations. Yes, creating this was very, very difficult. But we created the two of the most expensive movies ever back-to-back. And I want to support one thing, and that’s Robert Downey.”
Russo included, “I don’t know if I have ever something like this in film history. The way the global audience reacted to performance the way they did to Robert Downey in that film, I don’t think that’s happened before. There were people emotional in movie theatres, hyperventilating.
I mean, that is a serious display, when you can touch audiences all over the world to that extent. We’ve never witnessed anything like that, and if that doesn’t deserve an Oscar, I don’t know what does.”
Endgame was the final film of the 22 film arc that had Thanos as the main antagonist and the Avengers the only ones standing between him and the complete destruction of the universe.
It was Tony Stark who eventually finished the threat of the Mad Titan Thanos, his Black Order allies and his army of Outriders, by snapping his fingers. However, Tony’s body couldn’t last the impact of the snap, resulting in his death. Robert Downey Jr has already been twice nominated, one for Chaplin and the other for Tropic Thunder.
