Robert Downey Jr. has welcomed Stephen Colbert to The Avengers. The Iron Man actor responded on social media to a video of Colbert where he can be seen dressing up as Tony Stark to discuss the world’s current situation. Could a real-life Stark be the one to help the world in its time of need? Colbert’s impression sure made a lot of sense during his opening monologue the other night. And while the video was not officially sanctioned by Marvel Studios, it has Downey Jr.’s blessing.
Stephen Colbert continues to practice safe social distancing by recording his monologues at home and having them lead into a rerun of his show. A lot of the late night entertainers have been doing the same thing and the results have been pretty great as everyone is forced to get creative. The other night, Colbert took some of his wife’s makeup and fashioned himself a Tony Stark goatee to deliver some wise words about how he could help to end the world’s current suffering and now Robert Downey Jr. has made him a member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. He had this to say.
