Robert Downey Jr. Answers Captain America: Civil War Push-Up Challenge


A couple of days ago saw Team Cap call out Robert Downey Jr. for not having any super powers or strength other than the tin can known as Iron Man.

Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie challenged Robert Downey Jr. to a Captain America: Civil War push-up challenge, and now RDJ has responded.

The Russo Brothers Instagram account posted video of Robert Downey Jr. doing fingertip push-ups.

"Care to surrender and give in to win??? How about 20 and I raise you 20?" the post read.

Watch both videos below as well as Paul Bettany attempting to answer the challenge in which he looks up the word "meathead" in the dictionary.

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
