Fan Fun: Watch Asgard’s Finest Reporter In Exclusive Robert Downey Jr Avengers Interview


UPDATED: Earlier in the week (April 22), we only got a short glimpse of this interview between Mini Thor and Robert Downey Jr courtesy of Downey Jr’s Twitter account (see below). Now Marvel UK have released a longer clip containing the three hard-hitting questions Mini Thor had for Iron Man/Downey Jr. I don’t think you get something more adorable this morning if you tried.

It’s good to know that if things ever don’t work out in Asgard and Loki does eventually work out a way to claim and maintain the throne, at least Thor has another line of work that he can fall back on.

Hot on the heels of one disastrous interview in the current round of press for the latest Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron; Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man/Tony Stark) probably let out a sigh of relief on walking into this room and seeing an awfully familiar face there to interview him. And the hard-hitting journo? It was none other than the crown prince of Asgard himself. Or at least, his mini me.

In the hilarious little clip, we see mini-Thor grill Downey Jr… or does his answers seem much more suited to Tony Stark, especially the meal discussion? Check out the adorable clip below.

Oh if only more interviews were as easy and as entertaining!

I never would have picked Thor as favouring “lighter fare.” Sharing the bison I can definitely see, but trout? He’d need some stodgy veg and potatoes to accompany that I feel.

Iron Man and Thor are back with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) to once again save the world. When Tony Stark tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

You can catch Downey Jr and Big Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in cinemas now (for the UK, Europe and Australia) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film opens in North America next week on May 1.
