Robert Downey Jr. is top earner for period from June 2013 to June 2014, matching his income from the previous year, thanks to the continuing strength of his Iron Man portrayal in various Marvel films.

Tony Stark may be the richest man in the Avengers, but the man who plays him is doing pretty well too, sitting pretty once again atop the Forbes’ list of the Top 25 Earning Actors. Robert Downey Jr. matched his $75 million take from the previous year to earn the top spot for the period from June 2013 to June 2014.

Amazingly, Downey accomplished his back-to-back victories without releasing a film during the period accounted for. It was the staying power of Iron Man 3, and his back-end deal, that earned him the $75 million for the most recent year. Iron Man 3 first hit theaters in May 2013, but continued making money for months afterward, amassing more than $1.2 billion in the global box office.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe star was joined by fellow Avenger Chris Hemsworth, with $37 million, thanks to Thor: The Dark World surpassing earnings from the previous film in the franchise. Upcoming Marvel star Bradley Cooper came in third with $46 million, with star turns in The Hangover Part 3 and American Hustle. He's sure to score again when Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters in August.

Following the debut of that epic cover, Entertainment Weekly have now released the first official stills from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Below we get a look at some new and familiar faces, though perhaps the biggest surprise is seeing Rhodey (a.k.a. War Machine/Iron Patriot) hanging out with the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers Tower. Oh, and of course, we seen Science Bros action too!

First Look at Captain America & Iron Man in A:AoU

We’ve seen a handful of set photos, but Marvel Studios have now finally revealed our first official look at Joss Whedon’s sequel to 2012′s hugely successful Avengers Assemble; Avengers: Age of Ultron.

On the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, we see Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, with the villainous Ultron (who will be voiced by The Blacklist’s James Spader) and his robotic army lurking in the background as the world burns.

They also have the first plot details for the movie, and reveal that Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature Tony Stark creating Ultron – a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones – in order to allow himself to walk away from the Iron Man armour and for his fellow Avengers to also get some much needed R&R as they strive to protect the world.

Unfortunately, just as in the comic books, Ultron decides that life on Earth would be much better for humans…if they no longer existed! “Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!’” director Joss Whedon tells the magazine. “He’s on a mission. He wants to save us.”

His wife, Susan Downey, is expecting a girl in November, his reps have confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?
Robert confirmed the news on Facebook as well.
Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world,' but I'm certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November.
This will be the couple's second child together, joining two-year-old son Exton Elias Downey. Robert, 49, has a 20-year-old son, Indio, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

Iron Man 3 won three stautettes at the 41st Saturn Awards, taking the new category of comic-to-film adaptation, with star Robert Downey Jr. and supporting actor Ben Kingsley also winners.

Downey sent a video acceptance saying that he wants another Saturn to balance the feng shui in his home, so he read off his slate for the next few years, altering each title to make it more Saturn-friendly. He finished the list with “Sherlock Versus Mothra” for 2017.
Thx all who voted for me & IM3 at the Saturn Awards! Couldn't go, but I'm sure my speech was a highlight of the show.

He is busy filming an action film. But Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr. still managed to find some down-time between scenes while on location in London on Monday.

The star was seen putting his feet up - literally - while making Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Wearing a navy blue T-shirt with tracksuit bottoms, sunglasses and a baseball cap, the screen star looked nondescript as he relaxed with his wife, Susan.

Seen sat admiring the view, he could also be spotted riding a bicycle throughout the local greenery. In the back was one of his children, who was fast asleep - despite the excitement of the set.

First Trailer and Poster for 'The Judge'

Warner Bros. has premiered the first trailer and poster for David Dobkin's The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, which is set for a October 10 release.

The film finds Downey playing big city lawyer Hank Palmer whose returned to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town's judge (Duvall), is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before. Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Melissa Leo and Billy Bob Thornton co-star.
Howdy folks. I'm still a newbie at this stuff, so kindly bear with... Just wrapped the Avengers: Age of Ultron gig, figured it was the right time to give you an advance look at a trailer for The Judge, coming out in October.

Susan and I are delighted that this wound up being the first movie produced through our Team Downey production company at Warner Bros. It’s a drama with lots of heart and wit.... might be the best thing I've been part of yet...beginner’s luck, perhaps.

An original story from our director, David Dobkin, it’s a modern tale of conflict, judgment, death, regret, irony, family dysfunction, hilarity, and of course, unconditional love. When a miserable hotshot Chicago lawyer returns home to a small town in Indiana for his mother’s funeral, he is forced to deal with a lifetime at odds with his legendarily stoic superior court justice father (aka The Judge).

What could possibly go wrong? Shame and secrets, old flames and...murder perhaps?

Again, thanks for your patronage; I'll keep trying to make things interesting.

Check out the trailer and poster below. The official website is also online.
