As Tony Stark and Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. has always been at the heart of the on-screen Avengers team. As it turns out, though, he was much, much more than that — he became legendary on the sets of his Marvel movies for being the films’ social coordinator, as he put together dozens of cast & crew events over the years. He talked to us about his well-earned reputation as the Avengers’ life of the party. (Click on the media bar below to hear Robert Downey Jr.)

Solo: A Star Wars Story – It’s a solid film but for some reason it just didn’t light the box office world on fire. $29.2 million.
