It probably wasn't easy for him to admit…
Speaking to the Toronto Sun while promoting his new film The Judge at the Toronto International Film Festival, Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. shared his thoughts on Marvel Studios' latest megahit, Guardians of the Galaxy. According to Downey, the film is Marvel's best one yet.
When asked about the film, Downey stated, "Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever. And it's odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!"
Downey added: "It's like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.' And then he goes and wins the Superbowl!"
Guardians of the Galaxy is currently in theaters. The film has grossed $255 million domestically and recently crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office.
