Robert Downey Jr Talks About His Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Robert Downey Jr. shared some comments about his role in the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War. 

Downey talks about why he'd rather do in this film instead of a new Iron Man and how his character is going to change because of the conflict. 

About why he decided to join Captain America: Civil War:

“They said to me, 'If we have you, we can do this, or Cap 3 has to be something else. It's nice to feel needed. And at this point it's about helping each other, too. I look at it as a competition and I go, 'Wow, maybe if these two franchises teamed up and I can take even a lesser position, with people I like and directors I respect, maybe we can keep things bumping along."”

About his character’s changes:

“The main thing to me is, what sort of incident could occur, and what sort of framework could we find Tony in? The clues about where we might find him next are in Ultron. But what would it take for Tony to completely turn around everything he's stood for? Joss brings this up all the time. It's kind of weird that these guys would have all these throw downs all over planet Earth and yet when the movie's over, nobody minds. What would the American government do if this were real? Wouldn't it be interesting to see Tony doing something you wouldn't imagine?"

And if Tony Stark is going to be a full-blown villain:

“I wouldn't put it that way. The biggest question is, for Chris and for Cap, how do we bring Cap to a place where people go, 'Man, I never thought I would see such a vast change in Steve.' After you see Snowpiercer, you're like, 'I want to see a little bit of that guy.”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR hits theaters May 6, 2016.
