Robert Downey Jr. has been renowned for his contribution to the MCU as Iron Man, almost single-handedly creating the universe all to himself. But now that his time as Tony Stark is done, he is jumping ship to DC for a Netflix adaptation of Sweet Tooth.
Alongside the renowned actor is Christian Convery in the lead role of Gus, a young boy who isn’t quite what he seems. He’s half-deer and must leave the safety of his forest home in order to save the world from an event which could bring the apocalypse. But he doesn’t do this alone, forming together a team of people who are also hybrids of man and animal to save the world. Other case members include Nonso Anozie, Will Forte, James Brolin and Adeel Akhtar.
Will RDJ be able to shrug off his Iron Man shroud and take on a new comic book character? Or will he forever be linked to the philanthropist that many came to love? We will have to see what happens as the production progresses and Netflix releases more details about the series.
