New Delhi: Actor Robert Downey Jr's reputed to be as smart-mouthed IRL as he is as Tony Stark/Iron Man on screen, so his fellow Avengers seized gleefully on the chance to revenge themselves while posting birthday wishes for the actor, now 52. Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, posted this deceptively worded tweet: "Happy birthday to the legendary @robertdowneyjr. Mento. Life-saver. Friend. Hope your birthday is like a giant kiss on the lips." Which sounds super sweet until you check out the GIF he attached with it (let's not forget how fractious the dynamics between Iron Man and Captain America are in the films):
- Chris Evans posted a deceptively worded tweet to wish him
- Chris Hemsworth shared two pics on Instagram
- RDJ plays Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War

Thor's posts hit like his hammer. Chris Hemsworth celebrated his co-star's birthday with two epic Instagram pictures:
Robert Downey Jr's birthday was yesterday - but it's still yesterday in USA today, so happy birthday, Iron Man.
Robert Downey Jr's impressive body of work includes a Oscar-nominated turns as Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin and a white actor pretending to be black in Tropic Thunder, as well as acclaimed performances in films like Zodiac and the two Sherlock Holmes films.

RDJ has starred as the billionaire playboy and inventor by day, superhero also by day in three Iron Man films, two Avengers films, the third Captain America film, and will also star in the upcoming reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, playing mentor to the young Peter Parker. He will also reprise the role in Avengers: Infinity War next year and has signed on for the new Doctor Dolittle film.
