He’s so good. What’s heart-wrenching about this scene is that you realize later that Tony was ill and KNOWS he’s ill, although he’s (as usual) putting on a great superficial show of arrogance and bluster. And you can go back and SEE it in RDJ’s performance.
That’s why I never understand when people say Tony is a shallow character whose main attibute is arrogance. It’s so much the opposite, I can’t even tell you. His “arrogance” is a protective shell, just as much as the armor is.
@marvel Flattery will get you nowhere! Probably. Maybe. *looks the other way*

Sure, Robert Downey Jr. only logs on Twitter once every 4-5 days. But when he does, it’s usually to interact with Mark Ruffalo.
