TEN YEARS AGO:  Exactly five weeks from now (September 28) marks the tenth anniversary of Robert Downey Jr. being officially announced to play Tony Stark in Marvel Studio’s first-ever film effort, Iron Man.  

Here are some of the reactions (from AICN)–

(The last one is somewhat ironic in that the large, puppy-dog eyes have since become a trademark feature of MCU!Tony.)

(ALSO: To be fair, many of the other reactions were pretty enthusiastic and recognized the destiny-like casting, given RDJ’s personal history and Tony’s own.)

Anyway– happy anniversary (in five weeks)!

At the end of the day I think for the audience you’ll see some changes but not so much for Magnus. Magnus goes through many changes throughout decades or even year or even by the minute [or] what seems like the minute is a blink of an eye for him. So you’re definitely going to see some changes as far as mood and even looks. Since the first season you’ve seen him change within days of looks and he’s a very tempered, half-human, half-demon, and he’s also very impatient in the sense that he gets bored really easily. So I think you can expect definitely some different moods and changes and looks from Magnus and to not say that he’s out of character but more so that he likes to spice things up a lot.

“Yeah… I just feel like I haven’t accomplished anything that I thought I was supposed to. You know, by the time my dad was 30, he was married, had two kids, and escaped the Communist regime. My biggest decision today will be if I send back this burrito with salsa verde.”
