Robert Downey Jr. has become as big and iconic as an actor could be in his prime. His work as Iron Man is already quite legendary and people are eagerly waiting for him to return in Avengers: Secret Wars in a certain way. RDJ is known to have had a rocky background growing up, and his long acting career didn’t really take off until he was cast and as a Iron Man. But even when he was cast in the role, it was seen as a risky move. From being a dubious casting choice to becoming synonymous with Tony Stark, Downey has done something entirely commendable. But there are some facts about him that all of his die-hard fans should know.
We know that he was not the first choice for Iron Man as Tom Cruise was in contention. But even Tom Cruise agreed that Downey Jr. was born to be Tony Stark. On top of that, you would probably even know that Downey practices martial arts for a healthy lifestyle. And, he has been using his resources to fight the climate crisis for many years with the Footprint Coalition. Downey Jr. is certainly a generous guy, but there are also a few surprising and really eccentric things about him.

But we picked several instances where Tony Stark turned out to be as big as Steve Rogers and sometimes as big as Thor.
