Can you both talk about each of your characters and who they might be able to relate to? Maybe Tony and Bruce (Banner) are a little more intelligent and can relate on that level, and maybe Tony and Thor have some big egos so may clash at some point.
DOWNEY JR.: Yeah, I just don’t… speaking like Tony now… I just don’t like big guys who speak cryptically and act like they understand the language better than me. And have trippy brothers and all that sort of stuff. Whereas we (indicating Evans) have something that I think is a multi-faceted relationship.
EVANS: It’s layered.
DOWNEY JR.: It’s layered. Why is it layered?
EVANS: It’s got depth.
DOWNEY JR.: Yes. Where does the depth come from?
EVANS: I think they are both heroes in their own right. Tony is a little bit more flash, and he’s got charisma oozing out of him, and he likes the spotlight, and I think Cap might be a little bit more reserved in his desire to be front and center, but they are both, at their core, heroes, if you know what I mean. Even if Tony is flash and hot-shit, he is still a hero. He is still a good man. I think it just takes the duration of the film for them to see eye-to-eye and to see that in one another.
DOWNEY JR.: But I think it was probably the toughest relationship to really find the right arc for. You are catching us in one of the transition points, that we are shooting here today. Usually we wouldn’t be hashing out a problem together, we would be more on the verge of demonstrating the differences in our moral psychology.
Who would you say is the heart of the team?
DOWNEY JR.: (Points to Evans.)
EVANS: See, I was going to say him. I was genuinely going to say him. I think without him, we don’t work.
DOWNEY JR.: Not this time. I told them to write it that way!
