We saw Robert Downey Jr. in his younger self in Civil War. It has come to light to reflect his youth, and the studio visited his past movies. They took reference from Downey’s 1985 movie Weird Science where he played the role of Ian.
Captain America: Civil War was a challenge for Robert as he had to let go of his iconic trademark goatee for a single scene. Although the scene did not have any direct impact in the movie, Robert really outdid himself. what say??
In the Scene, we see a young Stark as a hologram, an augmented reality created by the adult stark. Downey played both parts. First, he played the role of older Stark, shaved off his mustache and goatee and then went again to play his younger self.
The level of difficulty involved in the scene was much higher with 4,000-frame Stark sequence, DeLeeuw explained that there are two Tony Starks in the frame. At the end of the scene, present-day Stark appears in front of the hologram of his younger self.
The Civil War is currently available in theatres near you. Check out the trailer:
