Avengers: Endgame co-stars Robert Downey Jr. offers to help Chris Evans some help as the latter deals with issues of today's smart technology. Tony Stark/Iron Man and Steve Rogers/Captain America may still haven't patched things up since their conflict in Captain America: Civil War, but the actors who play them seem to get along just fine as proven by their recent interaction on social media.
Stark and Cap were kept separate throughout the Avengers' debacle to stop Thanos from collecting all six Infinity Stones in Avengers: Infinity War. The former spent much of his time on Titan with Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and a majority of the Guardians of the Galaxy, while the latter stayed Earth-bound, partaking in the huge battle in Wakanda. In the end, despite their separate gallant effort, Earth's Mightiest Heroes failed to stop the Mad Titan, leading to The Decimation. The two will finally reunite for Endgame to take down the intergalactic villain.
Responding to a Twitter post by Evans taking a shot at smart technology which is the norm nowadays, Downey, roping in Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner in the MCU), channeled his inner Tony Stark and offered to help the Captain America actor with his issue. Fans quickly took notice of Downey's reply - and his mention of the popular Science Bros fan pairing, a Tony Stark/Bruce Banner ship - and have since then been waiting for Evans comeback, but nothing as of yet. Currently, the thread is full of GIFs and images relating to this specific encounter from the actors' respective MCU characters, with Stark being more tech-savvy while Rogers opts to stay old school. Check out the tweets below:
hey @MarkRuffalo looks like Cap needs a little tutoring from the science bros.— Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) January 8, 2019
Downey and Evans have had playful social media banters before, proving of their great relationship as MCU co-stars. But at this point, any kind of interaction leading to the release of Endgame in April will also act as a great way to promote the film - especially considering that the flick could be their last hurrahs as Iron Man and Captain America. Shall that be the case, not only will they be missed on-camera, their absence during press tours will also be felt.
It would be an understatement to say that over the last decade, the MCU lucked out on nabbing Downey, Evans and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) to be their first brand ambassadors. The franchise's big three, alongside the rest of the principal actors of the film series, appear to really jive well together and are happy to be part of the MCU. While there won't be a shortage of new heroes that could step in and become the face of the Avengers on the big screen, Marvel Studios should also be looking at actors who could be the face of the franchise like the said actors have been for the last 10 years.
