'Great to witness this cultural moment'
Seoul: As someone who began the Avengers journey with Iron Man ten years ago, Robert Downey Jr says it is gratifying to see actors like Brie Larson, the newest addition to the team as Captain Marvel, shatter the glass ceiling.
The actor said the emotional involvement of the audience with the franchise is the reward for the time and effort the team has put in these movies for the past decade.
"I'm honestly looking at, seeing all of you, and I know some of you hold this cinematic universe close to your heart and it has this symbolism stuff and it has really come to that way for us too," he said.
"Now, I honestly just feel like I get to be a part of witnessing this cultural moment that's coming up and I'm filled with a lot of gratitude. Just to be (here) next door to the centre stage, to the lady of the hour here (Larson), who's broken through this double-pane glass window and kind of re-established what this genre is supposed to be, is just very gratifying."
