Even when these actors take on other iconic films, the conversation always seems to lead back to these roles. A new video has been released that shows footage of Downey Jr's screentest for Tony Stark in 2008's Iron Man.

Inspired by the big moments in Avengers: Endgame, Hot Toys is excited to present today the battle damaged version of 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark LXXXV collectible figure as the latest addition to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe lineup. Fans are yet to move on from Robert Downey Jr's departure as IronMan/Tony Stark, but the Hollywood star is already looking forward to the next phase of his life. I tend not to pick up too many home video releases, but I'm probably going to grab this one simply because I remain fascinated by how the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios managed to pull off the movie with such style. Considering this is Downey Jr.'s very first time playing Tony Stark, the character is remarkably fully-formed. I - not that I've done with this Studio. And it sucks because the kid in all of us wants to be like, 'No! "It's always going to be summer camp and we're all holding hands and singing 'Kumbaya".

Casting director Sarah Halley-Finn said: "John (Favreau) was in love with the idea of Downey playing the part and we all felt so sure about him on a creative level".

"I had an incredible 10-year run that was creatively satisfying".

The leading man also touched upon how Iron Man and his own personality have melded over the last decade and the "dependency" that he feels developed for a time. It's always good to get ahead of where you are about to be.

And, with a slew of projects on the horizon, including a third Sherlock Holmes film, Downey isn't lost in what is to come. I better start psychically getting on top of that, ' you know? The actor believes that people tend to look at life stability, which for him was a Marvel, and perhaps it will never be as close to the status of "the guy with a trust Fund" that can solve any problem with money.
