Robert Downey Jr names superhero he wanted to be as a kid
If Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr was given a choice over which character he played in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems he would not have picked Iron Man.
The actor made the admission during a BBC Radio 1 segment that sees famous people answer questions submitted by children.
When asked which superhero he would have played if not Tony Stark, Downey Jr replied: "I can’t think of any red-blooded American boy that didn’t imagine themselves as Spider-Man growing up."
He also revealed that he would have loved to play the role of Hawkeye, thanks to his plot line in Avengers: Endgame, The Independent reported.
"However, looking back on it now – also because I’m just such a Jeremy Renner fan and he made it so cool, particularly when he turns into Ronin – I would say Hawkeye would be my go-to," Downey Jr concluded.
