RDJ announces nanotechnology to clean the Earth.
Many know the name, some even think he actual name is Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man). Robert Downey Jr. has been in the business his entire life. From his director father, Robert Downey Sr., raising him in the drug and film industry, to learning from his actress mother, Elsie Downey. RDJ has even tapped into the music world with his album, The Futurist, he’s starred in multiple musicals and was even chosen by Elton John for his music video, I Want Love.
RDJ has conquered a lot, including his sobriety. He was fired and lost a lot of faith in Hollywood in 2003 from too much drug abuse. After many vouched for him, including Elton John, he rose up again in his iconic roles as Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes. Now as he retires his famous Marvel suit, RDJ is beginning to take on the role as philanthropist.
Recently, at Amazon’s Re:Mars conference RDJ took on the challenge of cleaning the Earth using nanotechnology and robotics. Starting in April 2020, he believes they can “clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years.” Here are a few questions for him:
What brought you to bringing robotics and nanotechnology to clean the earth? How has the response been?
What do you believe the average person can do to reduce the waste we produce on a daily basis?
Do you ever see yourself giving up acting to pursue more environmental work?
Iron Man was instrumental in building the Marvel Universe we know today, who do you think will fill those shoes now that Spiderman is leaving the MCU?
Your father introduced you to the scene at the age of 5. How was it bringing your daughter on set of Avengers: Endgame?
Is there a superhero you’d like to see join the MCU?
How much has playing the role of Tony Stark influenced your decision to start the Footprint Coalition?
Years ago you released the album The Futurist, would you have preferred to have been more involved as a musician than an actor?
Sherlock Holmes 3 is set to release in December 2021 did you always know you were going to return to the role?
What upcoming project of yours are you most looking forward to?
