Joe Russo made bold statement about the acting of Robert Downey Jr.

The Avengers: Endgame director — who additionally helmed Infinity War and the last two Captain America motion pictures with his sibling, Anthony — revealed to The Washington Post that he trusts Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., merits an Academy Award for his exhibitions over the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“His cumulative body of work from these movies is staggering,” Russo said on the off chance that you take a gander at the work over simply even the last four [Marvel] films he’s done, it’s marvelous… He merits an Oscar maybe more than anybody over the most recent 40 years on account of the manner in which that he has inspired mainstream culture.”

Be that as it may, the way to Russo’s announcement might be in that last sentence, about how Downey Jr. also, Stark have “propelled pop culture.” Downey Jr. has been named for an Academy Award twice previously, once in 1992’s Chaplin and once for his inconceivably dubious blackface work in 2008’s Tropic Thunder. Regardless of whether Stark really delves into those dimensions of acting hacks might be up for basic discussion, yet you can’t contend with the way that his job as Iron Man permanently modified film.

But it has never been the way of nominations in Oscars for the movies like Avengers. To this Russo later said, “I go back and look at past Oscar winners like Ben-HurWest Side StoryLawrence of ArabiaMy Fair LadyThe Sound of MusicThe GodfatherGodfather 2The StingRocky — we’re talking about some of the most popular films ever made. It feels like there’s now a prejudice against popular cinema. In a way, that’s somewhat sad.”

Can Robert and Avengers transform the trend of The Oscars. Let’s just wait.
