Personal Quote:

[on Robert Downey Jr.] He is Iron Man. He is Iron Man in the way that Sean Connery was James Bond. I have no intention of making Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) without him, nor do I think I'll be called upon to do that. I don't think it's in my interest, Marvel's interest, or his interest, and I think everything will be fine. See more »
