Robert Downey Jr. became one of the greatest superheroes of all time when he took on the role of Iron Man. Recently, Iron Man Associate Producer Jeremy Latcham shared some glimpses from the actor’s screen test to play Tony Stark in the Marvel Studios film.
Iron Man was the first entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has appeared in over 20 films from phase one to phase three of the MCU and stepped out in Avengers: The Endgame after killing the insane Titan Thanos by snapping up the Infinity Gauntlet .
Recently, recalling the event for Abrams Books’ The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jeremy Latcham said, “A Mercedes comes up at 900 mph. A hula hoop girl was dancing on the dashboard. This huge guy with tattoos, a long beard, crazy glasses and a hat who is the right hand man of Robert Downey Jr. gets out of Jimmy Rich, walks around and opens the door. Disney would appear in a purple three-piece suit with a huge scarf, the producer said. “He swings the scarf over his shoulder and says, ‘Young man, where do you put your hair and make-up?’ I thought, ‘Holy sh-. What just happened? ‘”He continued.
When he was done with his hair and makeup, Robert Downey Jr. got on the set of Iron Man. “He takes a take and the entire crew breaks out in applause. Boom! Tony Stark is here! ”Said Latcham. Rich noted that RDJ was not being tested for the role as he had a good picture with his iconic role as Charlie Chaplin in director Richard Attenborough’s 1992 biopic Chaplin and made it easy for him to go all in on his Iron Man audition . “But Robert has a work ethic that surpasses anyone else I’ve worked with,” added Rich. “It’s inspiring. I saw how he put himself down, but not the way he did it for it. “
“I saw it recently and you know it’s good,” Downey said when he saw his Iron Man screen test. “But I think there was a lot more going on than just the fact that one day went well. [Iron Man director] Jon [Favreau] was really looking for a partner, and [Marvel Studios President] Kevin [Feige] struggled with the idea of ’are you pouring on the guy? Are you making interesting, mind-boggling, maybe-you’re-on-something casting decisions? ‘”He continued.
From then on, RDJ received major honors for his role of billionaire gun maker and superhero Tony Stark in Iron Man, which came out in 2008.
After starring in many films as the most beloved and beloved superhero, Robert Downey Jr. made his departures when his character Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame made a selfless sacrifice and completed his 10+ year MCU journey.
