Robert Downey Jr. Reveals What He Misses Most About The MCU

Robert Downey Jr. reveals what he misses most about being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Downey Jr. starred in the MCU’s first installment, the 2008 film Iron Man, and would go on to appear in a total of 11 movies in the franchise.

After 11 years in the MCU, Downey Jr. exited the franchise when Tony sacrificed himself in the 2019 Avengers: Endgame, the final film in The Infinity Saga as reported by Screenrant.

Even after Tony’s death, his influence continues on in the MCU, with his sacrifice often being referenced in subsequent Marvel films. However, Downey Jr. has not actually appeared in a Marvel movie since 2019.

In an interview with Deadline, Downey Jr. reveals what he misses most about the MCU. Downey Jr. says he misses “being in the trenches” with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige for so many years, and going through journeys with each Iron Man director. He also goes on to praise directors Jon Favreau, Shane Black, and the Russo Brothers, who each made Downey Jr.’s time in the MCU memorable, and who helped him embrace Tony Stark from start to finish. Read Downey Jr.’s full comment below:

What I miss most? Being in the trenches with Kevin Feige throughout; the beginning, with Jon Favreau, it’s like a beautiful dream now; the middle, with Shane Black on Iron Man 3, we’d just had Exton and shot it mostly in Wilmington N.C. It was idyllic and subversive. And The End, when I realized I’d made so many close friends in the MCU cast, and the Russo Brothers helping me embrace Tony’s arc.
