Next month sees the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will be the 27th MCU movie since Iron Man hit cinemas back in 2008. Over the years there have been some great cameos in the Marvel movies. But did you know that the richest man in the world played himself opposite Robert Downey Jr?

The reason Elon cameoed in Iron Man 2 was that Downey Jr had consulted him about playing Tony while shooting the original movie.

When preparing for filming, the star and director Jon Favreau (who also plays Happy Hogan), were given a tour of Space X by the billionaire in 2007.

According to Bloomberg, the Iron Man star had heard about a Howard Hughes type who had built his own industrial complex around 10 miles from the Marvel set.

Downey said: “My mind is not easily blown, but this place and this guy were amazing. It felt like a radical startup company. Things didn’t feel out of place.”
