Robert Downey Jr. in Heart and Souls (1993).
Completely Rational fears about baby Steve Rogers
… This is the greatest thing. The greatest.
I think of this whenever I watch the movie.
Steve honey, just sit in this chair and don’t move. Don’t even scratch your nose.
I love that he has basically every single condition ever.
Everytime i watch this movie
Tony Stark at Stark Expo 2012
I was rewatching Iron Man and noticed Tony’s subtle reaction for the first time:
Tony is showing Obadiah his arc reactor, this hidden secret, this flaw. He’s nervous, he looks around because Obadiah looked around. It’s 100% personal. Tony (almost) literally opens up his heart.
Obadiah hurriedly shoves it away. It’s an embarrassment. It’s bad for business. It’s ugly.
As Tony looks at his mentor’s hands, his heart is broken a little bit more.
#Tony isn’t the all-American good guy kid of superhero #It’s not that he doesn’t know how to be selfless or put the cause above himself #It’s that he doesn’t know how to show that he doesn’t FEEL like the all-American good guy #So he hides behind different masks #One as Iron Man #And one as Tony Stark #genius billionaire playboy philanthropist #who jokes about the most important things #and acts like he has everything under control #because he needs to #because he’s afraid if people look close enough they’ll see how he really feels #how he isn’t ‘good’ enough #and he doesn’t feel like he’s worth it #so when push comes to shove #he’ll take the course of action that will take himself out of the equation #or make people hate him #so everyone else makes it out okay #because he may not be worth it #but if he can save as many people as possible #then THAT is worth it to him
“Sure, Peter. I’d love to meet your boyfriend.”
