In fact, I believe that most of the viewers are familiar with the actor Robert Downey Jr. because of the role of “Iron Man”, in fact, before “Iron Man”, he has played many different roles and won Many awards. Today, we will take you back to know Robert Downey Jr. again.
Robert Downey Jr., born April 4, 1965 in New York City, USA, is an American actor, singer and executive producer.
Downey also counted as a child actor, but in the role of a child, and not known to the public.
Because her father was a director, Downey was exposed to a lot of acting from a young age. At the age of 5, he was cast in the comedy film ‘Pound’, directed by his father, in which he played a puppy.
I have to say, Downey was so good looking as a child. But what I don’t understand is why, at the age of 7 or 8, my father lured Downey to try marijuana.
At the age of 7, he played a child whose throat was slit by God in the movie ‘Greaser’s Palace’, and legend has it that Downey was beaten up by his father because he didn’t like the role.
In 1981, Downey loved high school in Los Angeles, where he was brought up in the arts and joined the high school theater group, where he learned to tap dance.
After one year of high school, he dropped out of school to develop himself in New York City because of his love for art and his rebellious personality, but his path to pursue art was not very smooth.
During this period, Downey worked as a waiter in a restaurant, a shoe store, and also performed live art, while working part-time and doing some non-essential roles in the theater. While performing, Downey was discovered by a talent scout, thus officially entering the entertainment industry.
In fact, Downey is a very prolific actor, here is an introduction to the works in which Downey has appeared.
A year after being discovered by a talent scout, Downey was cast in the romantic comedy film ‘Baby, It’s You’ in 1983, at the age of 18, in an uncredited supporting role.
In 1984, he appeared in the drama film ‘Firstborn’, in which he played the role of male No. 5 (just kidding, at least it was not an unnamed supporting role).
In 1985, he starred in the film ‘Tuff Turf’, not to mention that the film’s popularity is higher than not high, but this is also considered Downey’s first leading man.
Congratulations to Downey for becoming a regular cast member of the popular evening variety show ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the same year. (I didn’t realize that Saturday Night Live existed in the 80’s.)
During the period of 1986-1991, Downey had works every year. Those works are probably not well known to most people who are familiar with Downey now, so I will not introduce them all here.
In 1992, Downey had his first recognized and publicized role, and the appearance and recognition of a respected figure, in the biopic Charlie Chaplin.
In order to select the actors for the film, the person in charge examined more than two dozen male actors before and after, and finally selected Robert Downey Jr. to play the role.
Downey got the role in order to play the role, specially to learn the violin and tennis, but also hired a special personal trainer to teach him to imitate Charlie Chaplin’s posture and look
With his outstanding performance in the film, Downey was nominated for the Best Actor Award at the 65th Academy Awards and won the Best Actor Award at the 46th British Academy Film Awards.
This was the first award he won in his life, and really brought the audience’s attention to this young actor with acting skills and face value.
After winning the award, Downey didn’t let up and continued to appear in the public eye at the same rate as every year.
In 1993, he starred in the fantasy comedy film ‘Heart and Souls’, in which he played Thomas Reilly, who finds the true meaning of life with the help of four enthusiastic ghosts, and won the 20th The Saturn Award for Best Actor for this film.
In the same year, he wrote and starred in the documentary ‘The Last Party’ and the comedy film ‘Short Cuts’ as Bill Bush, a make-up artist, for which he won the 51st Ballon d’Or for Best Group Acting and the Special Prize at the 50th Venice International Film Festival for the Volpi Cup. He also won the Special Award at the 50th Venice International Film Festival for the Volpi Cup.
At this time, Downey was winning awards and getting a wider acting career, but between 1996 and 2001, he was arrested and imprisoned several times because of drug problems.
He also had film and television productions during this period, but during these years, works were released intermittently, although personal life issues also had a serious impact.
In 2001, he was fired by ‘Ally McBeal’ producers after a drug arrest, and in July 2002, Downey was released from prison.
As if this matter does not have a great impact on his status in the film industry (but still, people should be advised not to get involved with such items).
Freed Downey continues to play a variety of roles in film and television, and is prolific, almost 2-4 such a rate per year, it can be inferred that his films are one after another, what does that mean? There is strength, yes, there is strength.
She is not only an actress, but also active in the film industry as a producer, director, and screenwriter in multiple roles.
It wasn’t until 2008 that the 43-year-old Robert Downey Jr. was chosen by Marvel to star in the superhero movie ‘Iron Man’.
His role as superhero “Iron Man” Tony Stark received more attention this time, and Bottle won the 35th The Saturn Award for Best Actor for the film.
In November of the same year, the American magazine ‘Entertainment Weekly’ named Downey the “2008 Entertainment Personality of the Year” and Downey topped the list.
Iron Man’ has received unprecedented success, Marvel’s road is also known to everyone, is definitely out of the sequel, yes, after two years ‘Iron Man 2’ came to the audience.
Marvel’s movies will always surprise you, why? Because there is the old man Stan Lee (completely personal opinion, do not like to spray).
The release of ‘Iron Man 2’ brought Marvel $623 million worldwide, (the first film made about $580 million at the box office).
In fact, Iron Man the details of the film I do not need to have too much introduction here, like the comic book people almost all will have seen Iron Man the film.
Almost all of Marvel’s superhero movies, not only is the superhero save the world drama, but also mixed with a lot of comedy factors in which there is no lack of laughs in the more super dangerous and exciting shots.
(I would like to inform some people who have age anxiety, Iron Man became famous from the age of 43, what are you afraid of?)
Between Iron Man Part 1 and Part 2, Downey also has a very well-known role to produce, that is, in 2009, the comic book suspense movie ‘Sherlock Holmes’.
Downey played the male detective Sherlock Holmes in the film, and also won the 67th Ballon d’Or Award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Film for that role.
Also in December of the same year, he left his name on Hollywood’s Starlight Avenue.
After the release of ‘Iron Man 2’, Robert Downey Jr. had his own film production company, which he co-founded with his wife.
In 2012, the first ‘The Avengers’ was released, greatly satisfying the fantasy of Marvel fans of all the superheroes appearing together in one movie.
Yes, the film was also a huge success, earning $1.52 billion at the global box office, making it the world’s top grossing film of the year.
Marvel’s formula we do not need to say more, certainly the first part of the box office is high, it will certainly be out of the sequel.
In 2013, ‘Iron Man 3’ was released, the final season of the series, and Iron Man’s standalone films came to a halt.
But Iron Man the role can be called or as hot as the day, in the comic book has a certain major role.
In 2015, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ was released, and in 2016, Iron Man appeared in ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
It can be said to be in the independent film of other heroes, starring in another male protagonist, you can see the importance of the role of Iron Man.
In 2017, Downey went on to “guest star” as another male lead in the movie ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’.
In 2018, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was released and Iron Man returned once again, the movie earned $2.045 billion at the box office, the third part is actually closely connected to the fourth, as if the whole was shot and separated into two parts to air the same feeling.
As a Marvel fan, I went to the cinema to watch these movies. In the third part, the ending, my God, was unimaginably depressed. 80% of the heroes were lost by Thanos. Superheroes No, who will save the world.
In fact, the third part of the time, can also imagine that there must be a fourth part, then the fourth part of these heroes and how to come back, so look forward to more, more want to see them in the fourth part of the performance.
After a year, in 2019, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ was released, it is also the final season, Iron Man is also the most important presence in the final season.
No Iron Man can resurrect a vanished hero, and no Iron Man can kill Thanos and return the world to normal.
Finally he sacrificed himself to save the world, I believe that the vast majority of the audience in seeing Iron Man go, are teary-eyed.
Iron Man is dead, there is no more Iron Man.
In 2018, the father of comic books Stan Lee died, it seems that the old man died after the comic book movie is not as good as before (personal opinion).
Some time ago saw the news that Marvel intends to resurrect Iron Man, now can not be accurately said, but many users commented that Iron Man is really too important for Marvel.
Anyway, Iron Man has brought us too much joy, too much justice.
When remembering Iron Man, I hope you also remember the actor’s name, Robert Downey Jr.
