Robert Downey Jr. talks Chris Evans as Cap and getting too old for Marvel – Robert Downey Jr. is one of the coolest guys in Hollywood. Part of that is because he's "been there." And, I mean that in both the best and worst of circumstances. He's kind of the Yoda of his era, having weathered the storm both personally and professionally, eventually becoming a kind of Cinderella story when he took on the mantle of Tony Stark in 2008's... 3 weeks 4 days ago via donnieyen

What, you thought one villain was enough for The Avengers: Age of Ultron? Pshaw.
