When the movie Iron Man opened 10 years ago, its tremendous success paved the way for more Marvel movies, including several that have brought together multiple characters from the Marvel universe. Robert Downey Jr., who stars as Tony Stark and his alter ego in the Iron Man films and the new Avengers: Infinity War, certainly deserves a little credit for helping the Marvel franchise get off the ground. So, does that make him the “godfather” of the franchise? Downey offered his answer, and we certainly didn’t refuse to listen!
Avengers: Infinity War is playing now in theaters everywhere.
