Tonight's Facebook live video from Robert Downey Jr. unveiled a whole slew of teases about the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. But perhaps one of the funniest ones came from a conversation between Downey and the film's directors, Anthony and Joe Russo.
When the directors entered Downey's Facebook video, it was initially to call the actor to set. But they were ultimately convinced to answer a few questions before heading back to set.
"Well, we have to say [Tony] Stark, because he's here [in front of us]." Joe Russo answered. Anthony Russo seemed to agree, saying "You can go anywhere with Stark. That's the upside."
The two then agreed on Peter Parker (probably in part due to Holland also standing in front of them).
Downey then offered a third character - Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange, played in the MCU by Benedict Cumberbatch. "Strange could offer you a bunch of destinations, right? Wormhole, I guess. I'm not too familiar with what he's up to."
The brothers then debated which third companion they would take, based off of whose powers best suited the trip. Joe suggested Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), because he could "help open beach umbrellas." Anthony suggested Vision (Paul Bettany), especially if it was "a beach vacation."
While this exchange has no bearing on Infinity War, or on the director's favorite characters, it still was an amusing thing to see. You can watch the full video below.
