LOS ANGELES: Hollywood heartthrob Robert Downey Jr — who entered the world of silver screen superheroes as Iron Man — claims that he never gets tired of wearing the character’s suit. In fact, Robert stated that he has “come to love it.”

Although the Iron Man trilogy has concluded already, the superhero still lives on through the on-going The Avengers series. Robert will be making his comeback with the release of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, which also stars actor Chris Evans in the titular role.

When asked about wearing the suit again, the actor said he has nothing to complain about for he absolutely loves doing so. “Well, what I realised is that there is safety, fun and relief in numbers. For instance, Chris could tell you that. He is in every shot of the movie, practically,” Robert said, in a statement. “But still, whenever you put the suit on and they have improved it over time… I thought that rather than do that typical, fortunate people complaining about their circumstances thing, I should just love the suit,” he added.
