The Major Prop Robert Downey, Jr. Took From The Set Of Avengers

What priceless artifact did Robert Downey Jr. take home from the MCU’s epic superhero crossover flick? Nothing less than the 30-foot-tall ‘A’ that clung to Stark Tower at the end of it. As fans of “The Avengers” recall, that  “A” was the only thing left of the STARK logo after the Battle of New York decimated the building. And as it was, said “A” essentially became the first true symbol of the titular super-team, so its place in Marvel lore is lofty, to say the least.

Regarding just how Downey came to possess the coveted item, the actor told BBC Radio in a 2014 interview that his ownership basically began as a joke. “On the last Avengers, there’s this scene where there’s this ‘A’ which is probably 30 feet tall, and I’m looking at it, and we’re shooting in England, and I go, ‘I need that in my office in Venice.'” To his amazement, Downey went on to claim someone on set took him at his word and ensured the ‘A’ was actually delivered to his California office. “About two weeks ago, a wheeler showed up, I’m like, ‘What the heck is this doing here?’ And they go, ‘This is the ‘A’ you asked for.’ And I go, ‘They brought it?’ So now we have a massive Avengers ‘A’ that will be prominently placed,” he said.

And just like that, we’re officially dying to visit RDJ’s offices to see where he’s got that big ole ‘A’ displayed.
