Iron Man and Captain America will soon be locking horns on screen but the actors who play the two characters, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans, have nothing but love for each other. Robert says he can’t imagine anyone else playing the role of Captain America other than Chris Evans as he is “just the right guy for the job”.

Asked about Evans playing the role of the American superhero, Downey Jr said he “couldn’t imagine anyone else in that role from the first outing itself”.

“I couldn’t imagine anyone else in that role from the first outing itself. Also, I think it is probably the highest degree of difficulty of all the superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to get right.

“I think there is a certain degree of confidence and humility you need to have going in. Chris has gotten more and more detached from his neurosis and judgment as the years have gone by,” Downey Jr said in a statement.

In his characteristically witty way, Downey Jr added: “To look good in that helmet! They should have done a random facial pattern search. He’s just the right guy for the job.”
