After a warp with the Avengers: Endgame Downey and Evans decide to roll on from the Marvel Comic Universe. These two iconic marvel actors that made Stan Lee’s Marvel comics a reality are finally getting “off the bus”.
Downey Jr. says, according to Digital Spy, “We had to get off. We opted to, and knew it was part of the job to get off the bus while it rolled on to other destinations. There’s something very sobering about it. I’m glad he and I will be there to welcome others as they retire their jerseys.”
Downey unlike Tony Stark is rather humble
As for his own legacy, Downey Jr. is humble in the company of his Marvel co-stars.
“I really don’t need to look any farther than my co-stars. Mark Ruffalo is an activist, Chris Evans is a diehard American and proponent of true democracy,” he says. “I don’t really have the gumption, the skill set, the drive, or the humility either of those guys do.”
It was a decade of great marvel movies
Without his stellar performance in the first Iron Man film and his evolution of the character over the decade of films, there would be no MCU. While he will be missed in the future films, his presence will always be felt, and the fans thank him for such an amazing journey. With these two pillars leaving the MCU, the universe now charts a new course.
