Iron Man was the hero of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and fans think he deserves more than he got. An online petition is out and about to get Robert Downey Jr an Oscar.
Fans were so intrigued with Robert Downey Jr’s performance that they are all set to make him win an Oscar for it.
Even if you are not a Marvel fan, you would know ‘Avengers: Endgame’ was a huge hit. The movie was filled with many protagonists and it was team work that brought victory home.
But when Disney started an Oscar campaign of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, the list was all about technical categories. No on-screen Marvel superheroes saw the light of the day.
When the fans did not see Robert Downey Jr’s name in the Oscar campaign list, they were fumed and hurt. So to set things right, they took the deed upon themselves. Fans of the actor started and online petition to award the actor who they think played an iconic role of Iron Man, reports News18.
This is what the petition reads,
“We, the undersigned, were so moved by Mr. Robert Downey Jr.’s performance as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame that we believe he is unquestionably deserving of the Academy’s Award for Best Actor. The creative choices he made and the immense depth of emotional energy he infused in Tony Stark forged an unforgettable experience for the viewers. Though we acknowledge that our efforts can in no way directly influence the Academy’s selection process, we do hope that this document will serve as a reminder to Academy members that Mr. Downey’s powerful performance has indeed directly influenced innumerable lives across the world.”
It is anticipated that the man behind setting fans’ thoughts in motion is the movie’s co-director. It is due to Joe Russo that fans think Robert Downey Jr deserves an Oscar.
After the iconic movie, ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ released, Russo felt that the Iron Man actor deserved an Oscar for his performance. Furthermore, he added that he had never seen people react and cry to any performance in the past the way they did for Tony Stark.
