I was going to reblog the Spider-Man premiere video for RDJ’s comments about Tony and Peter but for some reason YouTube is now saying the video is no longer available. D: Luckily I could still play it on the blog I was looking at though, so I typed up the quotes for those interested. ;D
Interviewer: So I have to say, I was watching Civil War again and I was
watching the scene near the end of the big action scene where you think that
Spider-Man might be kind of “out”, and you kind of popped open and you get really
severe with him and you’re like “You’re done. I’m taking you to May.”
I’m curious about how that set the tone for your, Tony’s, relationship with
Peter in this movie.
RDJ: Yeah, well first of all I’m glad that happened because you
know recruiting teenagers for life and death situations is not advisable. So I
think it was appropriate, responsible. But then the way that this is being
relaunched it kind of makes sense and I never thought I’d wind up being like a
“father figure” to another Avenger but I couldn’t pick a better
character or actor to do it with. And I’ve saw this movie and it’s just great,
it’s just great.
Interviewer: What too, I’m curious, for Tony now, what does family mean to
him? I mean he’s had a lot of betrayal and then suddenly there’s this young
guy. So what is family for Tony now?
RDJ: Sure. Well, you know sometimes you figure if someone isn’t
mature enough yet to betray you, you feel comfortable. That comes with age - treachery,
treachery comes with experience, we know.
