Avengers Endgame was released last week, and it smashed all the records at the box office. The incredible success of the movie goes to its cast and directors. The movie has crossed the mark of $1 billion in its opening weekend.
But the foundation of this success for Avengers Endgame was laid way back by Iron Man (2008) aka Robert Downey Jr. He has been one of the main linchpins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the past ten years in which he played the role of Iron Man in nine different films (additional cameo in The Incredible Hulk).
Some of his fans think that his acting skills are beyond excellent, and he has shown a true epitome of his craft. Fans took to Twitter to express their views, and they think Robert Downey Jr. deserves an Oscar for his acting skills and performances.

However, superhero movies usually don’t impress the Academy. Even Black Panther did not win the Best Picture award after being the nominee in that category. It won awards but other than in acting or directing categories.
Now fans are expecting Iron Man to lift the Oscar next year. Robert Downey Jr has been nominated earlier for his role in Tropic Thunder but lost to Heath Ledger, for the performance of the Joker in the movie ‘The Dark Knight.’
Many months are remaining for Oscars nominees to be officially confirmed. Fans can only wait for the time when Oscar nominees will be announced later this year, but the incredible love which fans are pouring in for their star is heartwarming.
