Robert Downey Jr. has had one of the most interesting careers of any actor working in Hollywood right now. Downey Jr. was once a teen movie heartthrob, but when he was cast as Tony Stark in Jon Favreau’s 2008 comic book movie “Iron Man,” his career took off in a whole new direction. Tom Cruise was also in the running for the part before he got it.
After playing Tony Stark in 10 movies, Downey Jr.’s personality has become almost the same as Stark’s. He has the same snarky, quick-witted sense of humor that makes Tony so funny. Even though actors sometimes “phone it in” after playing the same character for so long, he seemed to get better as the “Infinity Saga” came to an end. He added new layers to Tony, and his performance in “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019 was surprisingly moving.
Some MCU fans may be sad to see Downey Jr. leave the character behind, but it opens up an exciting new chapter in his film career. As an actor, he can do a lot of different things, and he has been in a lot of interesting projects over the course of his career. Downey Jr. has done a lot more than just “Iron Man.” He has acted in powerful biopics, funny comedies, in-depth character studies, and scary crime thrillers. Here is a list of the 14 best movies that Robert Downey Jr. has been in.
