The Avengers Crew Made Fun Of Robert Downey Jr.’s Height


Actor Robert Downey Jr. was in the center of a practical joke during the making of The Avengers, when the crew made fun of his short stature by giving him a miniature chair instead of a full-size chair.

The star reprises his portrayal of superhero in upcoming sequel The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

He risked the anger of Marvel Studios bosses by posting picture from the set on his page.

In one of the pictures, the actor shows a row of director-style production chairs with the names of the cast on them. We can see names such as Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson.

However, his chair was swapped with one of child-sized chairs, also stamped with the actor’s name, and is shown in the middle of the row.

The funnyman was not offended by the joke attacking his height, so he tweeted the photo his cast members, Evan and Ruffalo, adding a caption, “Lights, camera, assemble!”

Mark Ruffalo also tweeted the pictures from the set, and his bravery actually got him in trouble with producers on Wednesday, April 23.

He apologized to them by tweeting, “I’m sorry Marvel. I will be better. I’m like your black sheep Avenger.”
