The MCU had kick-started in the year, 20018 with the movie, Iron Man and the actors, Robert Downey Jr has played this character for more than a decade. This actor is very expensive, and Marvel had helped him in reaching all the fame. When it boils down to paying expenses, Marvel is always happy to do what they need to the actor in the MCU as he is a very profitable actor for them. His movies have always earned big money at the Box Office. This is the very reason that his character, Iron Man may not be killed off after the movie, Avengers 4. The character may become retired after his contract is done so Marvel might use him for a few cameo appearances.
The actor had shown Marvel why he is the perfect and best person to play the role of Iron Man and this had happened during his screen tests and also his auditions. RDJ’s very first screen test as the character, Tony Stark had been pretty dark and also very intense and has now made its way on to the internet. The footage shows a very different Tony Stark from the one that the fans are used to now. In the video, Robert Downey Jr. seems to have taken a much darker tone than his humorous and cocky character:
RDJ has also made up his mind for having a career beyond the MCU, and the actor had shared what he has learned from his wife, Susan Downey:
“You don’t know what or how you’re gonna end until it is. That takes a lot of the edge off. She’s (Susan) learned how to be like, ‘You won’t know until you’re there, so you’re wasting your time on that equation. That’s not on the test.’ I could project all kinds of stuff. I could get into the black dog. Whatever you want, or I could stay, spiking it in the end zone until I have to be carried off. I’m looking forward to whatever resolution is in the cards.”
