Downey said, “I’m so glad you brought this up because there was some talk about it, and I said ‘let’s not’ and because I’m much more like you than you might want to believe.” He even told the host, “I listen to the show, and I agree with most of your opinions, varied though they may be. Occasionally, you’ll go on some tributary trail of thought, and I’ll go like, ‘Oh, that’s not how I see it, but I love that you see it that way.” He further added, “I’ll tell you the truth. I didn’t expect the Marvel Cinematic Universe to become what it became, and it is this extensive, multiheaded Hydra at this point.”
When asked about Scorsese’s comments, he authentically replied, “It’s his opinion. I mean it plays in theatres. I appreciate his opinion because I think it’s like anything. We need all of the different perspectives so we can come to the center and move on.”
