Oh, RDJ. Could you be any more Tony Stark if you tried? This morning (presumably in lieu of building a skyscraper with his name on top) Robert Downey Jr posted the above photo to Facebook, with the tagline "Gotta back the brand!".
I absolutely love it when actors poke fun at themselves, reveal themselves to be fanboys of the characters they play, or just generally go all meta. Who didn't go nuts as Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin decided to take their T-shirts to the next level?
However, seeing as I am not actually a famous actress (and so cannot reference my own characters) all I can do is fangirl out and try and buy myself the same T-shirts. To the internet!
Most of these designs are by Jack of All Trades clothing, which breaks my heart because the company only does limited runs of each design, and the only one still available is the stained glass Iron Man.
Buy it here, and buy it soon if you want it! If you want to get your hands on the others that he is wearing, you are left to ebay, garage sales and second-hand stores. It's like being back in 1998...
Of course, there are other places to find similar-looking ranges, and one of my favorites is Junk Food Clothing, who has an officially licensed range of vintage-look Marvel tees. This one reminds me of RDJ's West Coast Avengers shirt, except far less cool, because he isn't wearing it! (And obviously that it isn't the West Coast team.)
Etsy has rallied to the call of fans of the Gosling/Culkin "inception" t-shirt, and you can now find a whole range of them for sale on the site here.
