Check out Robert Downey Jr‘s audition for Marvel’s first Iron Man movie.

It’s incredible to think that over a decade ago, the Marvel Universe started with Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. starred in the movie following years of personal and legal troubles. Analysts did not believe that Iron Man would go on to become a multi-billion dollar franchise, and arguably some of the credit deservedly goes to Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. play’s the role more seriously than in the actual movie. It shows Downey’s first perspective into the character Tony Stark.

Downey appears as Iron Man in the upcoming Georgia-filmed feature film Avengers: Infinity War, the most prominent blockbuster movie ever made. You can check out the video below and learn how it all started.
