Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr kick-started MCU with the very first Iron Man movie back in 2008 and since then, Iron Man has been regarded as the iconic superhero all time and holds a special place in the hearts of MCU fans. Marvel fans were so sad and mourned badly when they lost their favorite hero in the last Marvel movie MCU movie Avengers: Endgame. And now, actor-director Jon Favreau who was seen as Downey Jr as Tony Stark's friend and personal chauffeur Happy Hogan feels that Robert Downey indeed deserves an Oscar for his performance in the last flick.

In an interview with Variety, Favreau said if he gets nominated in best actor category he will definitely vote for him. He said, "He has my vote for sure. I think he was able to discover and explore dimensions of the character over the course of many, many films, which is a bit of its own category."

He added, "But I have to say that if you look at, especially how it began and how it ended in his performances between the first one and 'Endgame', there was a really thoughtful arc to the character, both in his performance and how all the filmmakers contributed to that character.

Earlier Avengers: Endgame's co-director Joe Russo told Washington Post that he would like to see Downey Jr get nominated for Best Actor at the 2020 Academy Awards. Joe said, “His cumulative body of work from these movies is staggering. If you look at the work over just even the last four (Marvel) films he’s done, it’s phenomenal. He deserves an Oscar perhaps more than anyone in the last 40 years because of the way that he has motivated popular culture, it’s heartbreaking. He has the world in tears right now."
