I also got to share an office with @philjdsaunders for like seven months, and indeed I learned so much!”

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo certainly believed that Tony Stark had become an icon due to his role in Iron Man. They said that Iron Man must get a crack at an Oscar.

But I just want to stump for one thing, and that’s Robert Downey” -was quoted by Joe Russo. He also spoke that “His cumulative body of work from these movies is just amazing and so energetic. If you look at the work over just the last four [Marvel] films he’s done, it’s exceptionally phenomenal. He deserves an Oscar perhaps more than anyone in the last 40 years because of the way that he has motivated popular culture of comics.”
