Robert Downey Jr. aka Tony Stark is the coolest and kindest actor working in Hollywood. He makes working on the sets comfortable for everyone, be it the actors or technical crew. He recently bought a personalized chair for the entire crew of Avengers: Infinity War to show his love and appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
Downey Jr. certainly has the money and resources to buy just about anything for himself or co-stars. It’s not incredibly rare in Hollywood for actors to give each other expensive gifts but designing a custom made car ‘Camaro’ based on Captain America theme for his co-star Chris Evans is truly generous.
Well, it was unveiled in Jay Leno’s Garage episode which can be seen on CNBC on August 30th. Leno is no longer part of ‘The Tonight Show’ but he has a reality TV series where he talks about unique cars, meets their creators, designers, owners etc.
In real life, Chris Evans and Downey Jr. get along really well but in reel life, we can’t even imagine Stark giving Cap the respect he deserves, let alone buying him a designer car. From the days of ‘The Avengers’, they have had opposing views which sometimes even resulted in a full-blown confrontation in Civil War over Sokovia Accords. As a result, the Avengers split up into two groups – Cap’s Secret Avengers and Official Team Avengers.
In Avengers: Infinity War, it took Banner’s convincing for Tony to call Cap as Thanos was coming for Infinity Stones. He was the only guy who could have protected Vision and Mind stone from the brutal attack of Thanos’ Black Order. It’s likely that either one or both will die in Avengers 4 as their contract is set to expire and it won’t be renewed.
But hold, we will see fighting alongside one last time in Avengers 4 before we let them go. They survived the big snap and it’s upto them to first figure out how to save their friends and humanity from extinction and then destroy Thanos for good.
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
“We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
The ensemble cast has some of the biggest stars brought by Marvel under one roof including Josh Brolin (Thanos), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Vin Diesel (Groot), Jeremy Reiner (Hawkeye), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Tom Holland (Spiderman), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), Karen Gillian (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Paul Bettany (Vision).
Avengers: Infinity War is now available on digital platforms, DVD/Blu Ray etc.
The official movie synopsis reads:
“Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment”.
The brief synopsis of Avengers 4 is as follows:
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
