Robert Downey Jr. changes his “Iron Man” director's life in the first trailer for Jon Favreau's comedy Chef.

Downey Jr., last seen on the big screen alongside Favreau in Iron Man 3, helps the struggling foodie move on after he loses his job, and encourages him to open up a food truck where he can serve the food he loves, instead of a menu he hates.


Favreau also recruited Scarlett Johansson from Marvel universe for a small part, plus Dustin Hoffman, while John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale and Sofía Vergara appear to have the biggest sidekick roles, aside from Favreau's on-screen son, played by Emjay Anthony.

Open Road Films is releasing Chef in theaters on May 9.

It's another great night full of winners, and Robert Downey Jr. is one of them at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards!

The Iron Man 3 star smiled as he worked the arrivals area outside Los Angeles’ Galen Center and happily came inside to find out he won Best Male Buttkicker for his role in the superhero flick. During his acceptance speech, Robert said:
“You know, I wasn’t always a butt-kicker. In fact, life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways, in many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back! Now look at me! To all the kids around this wonderful blue planet, thank you for this awesome statue. And remember: when life is kicking your butt, never forget to kick it back right in the face! Love you later.”
Enjoy the pictures of Robert Downey Jr. at the 2014 Kids' Choice Awards from the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

RDJ on Chris Evans and 'The Avengers'

Robert Downey Jr. helped Marvel’s"Avengers" franchise skyrocket to success the instant he suited up as Iron Man in 2008. It’s a role he’s reprised in three films, with all four earning $3.9 billion in worldwide box office. He spoke to Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh about the franchise, his friendship with Chris Evans and, at age 48, how many more times he wants to suit up.

Had you met Chris Evans before he was cast in “Captain America?”
I have a vague memory of seeing him and whatever hot girl he was dating across from a dinner with me and Susan Downey. I think he and his girlfriend invited Susan and I back to their house to get in the Jacuzzi, to tell you the truth.

Seriously — did you go?
No, we did not, and by the way, like I said, that’s a vague memory, but that’s what I’d like for you to print.

Why did you urge Chris to take the Captain America role?
There was so much riding on what essentially could be considered the squarest superhero in history. It was probably the most risky of the franchises we launched. I say “we,” like I’m a company man, which I like to think I am. By the way, I’m a fan of his.

Having already shot some action photography on location in Johannesburg, South Africa, it's being reported that principal photography on Joss Whedon's eagerly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron was set to get underway yesterday at the Forte di Bard in Aosta Valley, Italy. The shoot didn't apparently feature any scenes with Robert, so we'll have to wait for his photos a little longer.
In the meantime, I've updated the gallery with Robert's oldest photoshoots from years 1984 - 1989. Enjoy!

RDJ talks Iron Man in 'Assembling a Universe'

Marvel and ABC will be airing a documentary special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe which is going to focus on how Marvel built their incredible cinematic universe. We have a new clip from the special that features Robert Downey Jr. talking about playing Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, his surprise at how popular the character became, and the reaction from fans.

"Playing someone who's conflicted, and conflicted for the right reasons and doesn't see the potential that they have and then starts living in accordance with a code is a great, old-fashioned theme," Downey says in the clip. "But I hadn't ever imagined that I could be involved in something that demonstrates it on this scale." Fans will recall that it was the breakout success of "Iron Man," Marvel Studios inaugural effort in 2008 featuring a character who didn't have the mainstream awareness of the X-Men or Spider-Man that allowed Marvel to continue producing and developing their own films, all of which exist in a shared universe.
