Robert Downey Jr. admits 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is the best Marvel movie
"'Galaxy' in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever," Downey tells the Toronto Sun (via MTV News). "And it's odd for someone with -- on occasion -- an ego the size of mine to actually say that!"
He elaborates, "We're talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: 'Look!' It's like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: 'Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.' And then he goes and wins the Superbowl!"
