Team Iron Man feels pretty strong about the latest Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War.
Appearing on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Robert Downey Jr. led the team in some personal trivia after talking up the latest superhero story in the Avengers franchise. “I think this thing might do OK,” said Downey, who sat down with the host first.
Kimmel also asked the actor about the upcoming Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland that Sony just announced would be called Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Downey Jr. said he’s not sure if he will be involved, saying, “There’s no contract yet.”
The host also shared a photo of Downey’s daughter wearing the Iron Man hand, proving that she chose her father’s team in the film’s Civil War. “Is there any chance you would adopt me?” asked Kimmel, “because I’d love to be a part of the Downey Jr. family.”
Downey then was joined by Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp and Paul Bettany to answer some trivia questions about one another.
Cheadle guessed correctly (because he was there) that Duran Duran played at Downey’s 50th birthday party, but other questions were tougher. It turns out, Cheadle was a castmember on The Golden Palace, a spinoff of The Golden Girls, Kimmel told them. “You’ve got a Golden Girl on your team!”
Earlier in the show, Kimmel sent a reporter out in Hollywood to ask people how many Avengers they could name versus how many U.S. presidents they could name. Needless to say, the Avengers won out.
The members of Team Iron Man were the latest guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s Marvel Week, which kicked off Monday with Team Captain America (Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Paul Rudd and Anthony Mackie), who premiered a new clip for Civil War. Kimmel debuted the first trailer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange on Tuesday night, with Benedict Cumberbatch present via video.
