For his work, Downey Jr. won the praise of critics and the love of the audience, but not only. As it turned out, in total, he received an impressive $ 435 million from Marvel Studios over 11 years of cooperation. He started in 2008 with a modest $2.5 million and finished in 2019 with $75 million.

Moreover, before agreeing to the fateful role, Robert thought for some more time, because he had never played superheroes before, but was a good dramatic actor, but with problems of self-control. To tie up with the past and once again not break loose, before filming Downey Jr. I went through a special rehabilitation program for people with addictions. The studio, for its part, also considered Nicolas Cage and Tom Cruise for the role of Iron Man.
