Robert Downey Jr. is more than a household name these days, he’s a literal superhero to “Iron Man” fans everywhere.
At first, Marvel’s casting choice for Tony Stark had a few people scratching their heads, but it wasn’t long before Downey Jr. blew us all away in the very first trailer, and now he embodies Tony Stark and Iron Man in a way that absolutely no one else could. It’s almost mind boggling to consider someone else bringing as much humor and heart to the role.
In honor of Downey Jr.’s 51st birthday, Zap2it has compiled a list of some of his greatest quips and witticisms as the infamous Tony Stark. Here’s hoping once “Captain America: Civil War” comes out, we’ll have more to add to the list.
That time he got back from being a prisoner of war and asked for a cheeseburger
That time he teased Thor about his cape
That time he made friends with a random kid
That time he tried to provoke the Hulk
That time he accidentally blew up an entire city
That time he got super real about himself
That time he ratted out a SHIELD agent
That time he couldn’t lift Thor’s hammer
That time he joked about Loki’s ‘performance issues’
That time he described himself to a tee
That time Ultron beat him to a punchline
