Robert Downey Jr aka Ironman ‘tickled’ to get Scarlett Johansson on his team!

Get ready for some more comic-based news because it’s almost time for Ironman Versus Captain America!  When Robert Downey Jr. stepped on “Captain America: Civil War” set as Tony Stark/Iron Man, he felt it was a return to the continuing sense of freedom and collaboration that he has enjoyed since he first joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The handsome superhero had the following to say about the film,

“It’s this massive industry now, but at the end of the day when it’s just me inhabiting the character of Tony Stark so that I can really sell it, I’m still having fun!”

Though Team Cap sports some heavy-duty Avengers, Team Iron Man is not lacking in talent as Downey proudly points out.

“I was tickled to get Black Widow. Since ‘Iron Man II’ Natasha, aka Black Widow, has never shared an hour with Tony where one of them wasn’t trying to deceive the other one. Particularly after ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and how close she and Cap were, I just never expected it to go this way. It’s perfect. Wrestling her away from Nick Fury was also a really smart, cool idea. Obviously, we don’t want to be in a universe where Rhodey and Tony Stark aren’t still brothers. They’ve been through so much that there would almost be too many fractures if they parted ways. And there’s some recruiting going on for Tony’s team as well.”

Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
