Robert Downey is…back!
While his days as the billionaire with an iron suit is over, it seems we have not seen the last of Robert Downey Jr.
No, he is not coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as his contract has already ended and any hopes of him reprising his penultimate role of Tony Stark, is just not happening.
So as much as we hate saying it, it’s time to give it up.
He is back, however, but on the internet, as his new show, The Age of A.I. has just debuted over YouTube. This is a documentary series that he hosts and deals with his beloved character’s area of expertise, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
The first four episodes of the series are already available online and to give you a taste, we’ve embedded the first episode below in order to satiate whatever Downey Withdrawal Symptoms you may have developed after watching Avengers: Endgame.
The pilot episode follows Mark Sagar, who is an Oscar-winning special effects artist and co-founder of Soul Machines, a company that creates autonomously animated digital versions of its users, with Grammy winner and Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am. being one of them.
Other forthcoming episodes will feature prominent figures including former NFL linebacker Tim Shaw, who is battling ALS, as he works with a team at Google to help restore his ability to communicate via the testing of the prototype of Project Euphonia for the first time.
The series is produced by Network Entertainment with Team Downey in association with Sonar Entertainment.
The Age of A.I. isn’t the only way that Downey is evoking Tony Stark in real life. Last year, he announced the formation of Footprint Coalition, an initiative that will use robotics and A.I. to reverse the Earth’s carbon footprint within a decade.
