Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige in a recent interview said that casting Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man(Tony Stark) was a big dubious decision.

He said that casting Downey Jr. was the first major role as a new president of Marvel Studios.

“I remember speaking to the marketing team at Paramount because Paramount release that (“Iron Man)”, saying that if we did our job, Tony Stark will be as famous as Iron Man; Tony Stark will be as well known and as much of a household name as Iron Man because that’s how interesting the character has to be.

“Literally, the first decision I made and was allowed to make and allowed to try to pursue as president of Marvel Studios was casting Robert Downey Jr and it felt fun to do that because we knew it’d either be great or the biggest dumpster fire ever. There’s very little wiggle room. It ended up being great and I’ve always said ‘No RDJ, no MCU”



“I remember pitching that to Robert Downey Jr. probably in December of 2015, I think,” Feige said. “I pitched him the idea of the two-part finale for Avengers and Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was a part of that leading into it. It took a little while, but eventually, it came together. I think at first it doesn’t seem real that this journey will come to an end. But as it got closer to filming, it really was emotional for all of us, and particularly for him.”

“Robert Downey Jr.’s final shot that he filmed for Avengers: Endgame (that snap) was filmed at the same studio location that he first auditioned as Tony Stark,” Feige said.

The scene where Iron Man snaps and says the legendary dialogue “I am Iron Man” was added days before the final edit. WOAH!!

“The last thing that we got was Robert saying, ‘I am Iron Man,’ and snapping his fingers. That was the very last shot on the last day.”
