“I gotta tell you, this is such a big deal for me,” Downey said in a pre-recorded speech. “It’s probably the most significant achievement of my career. Without you I’m nothing. With you I am but a small, yet integral, part of the Cinematic Universe known as Marvel.”
“I want to talk about the past, present, and future,” Downey said. “The past for me was 30 years of dependency, depravity, and despair. otherwise known as ‘An Actor Prepares!’ The present is this moment of glory for all of us. And the future? That is always uncertain. But looking at these friends behind me. It seems like things might brighten up after all.”
“If you play a superhero in one of these movies, and it works, you become a big star!” He added. “And it is meaningless. Unless you use that to achieve something higher. You have to take direction from peers, and your family, and occasionally even an actual director.”
