Actor Robert Downey Jr is glad that the latest installment of his film Iron Man 3 has sparked the debate about whether terrorism is media driven.

The 48-year-old actor plays Iron Man Tony Stark in the superhero film franchise, reported Contactmusic.

"We just wanted to get to a point where kids would be asking that question when they left the theatre. We wanted people to be having conversations about what genetics technology could mean and without being political-is terrorism media driven ?"

"I'm happy those arguments will be occurring. They're debates about entertainment," he said.
