this Robert Downey Jr. line added after filming
Marvel Studios Big Boss Kevin Feige, the man without whom the MCU would not exist, is undoubtedly the person on Earth who knows the most secrets behind the scenes of this universe of superheroes. Present since the very beginning of this now long adventure of 32 films, the producer is well known for having an eye on everything. The creative aspect is no stranger to him.

In this film in particular, thanks to your presence and that of Robert [Downey Jr.], there’s a real balance between making fun, but also, and that’s what you know how to do so well, taking things seriously. I remember we added the line in ADR [processus de ré-enregistrement audio en post-production, ndlr] when Tony comes out of the cave and takes all the bullets. And then we added this very serious moment”My turn” (“My turn“). And he lights the flames. There was a high degree of corniness in there. But Robert made it cool. And I think it’s a very stylish moment.
A clever mix of seriousness and humor, laughter and tragedy, Iron Man is the illustration of the Marvel recipe as it works best. Emotion, a certain tenderness, some intense passages and action often too muchall sprinkled with a pleasurable humour, the film has not aged a bit… And it’s lines like the one above that are part of its charm!
