Robert Downey Jr will be reprising his role as Iron Man for the sixth time in Captain America: Civil War and he can feel the pressure.
“Jesus Christ, you’re right. I should flip the f*** out right now, shouldn’t I?” he told news.com.au from West Hollywood.
“Everybody rises from the ashes many times in a lifetime and at the end of the day, pressure is just pressure,” he added.
“If I’m thinking in any morose way about yesterday, I’m just inviting a depressive attitude. If I’m concentrating on the things that are ahead of me that I have to do or what’s expected of me, I’m just going to be anxious.”

The Iron Man actor further spoke on his recovery from drug addiction and said “It was only a couple of clicks back I was wondering how I was going to pay my rent or if I’d ever be in a functional relationship.”
“I’ve done movies that weren’t put together as well and weren’t as enjoyable to make or watch as some of these Marvel films,” he continued. “And with this Captain America, it’s good to know that fans aren’t pissed off at us or think we blew it. That’s some pressure lifted; you feel a small victory.”
