Robert Downey Jr. is filming “Captain America: Civil War” in Atlanta. In a recent leaked photo, the actor was seen with bruises on his face. The photo was tweeted by Blaxican Food Truck, where Downey was seen dressed in a black T-shirt. He can be seen posing with the employees of Blaxican and appears to have red scars on his forehead, cheeks and a bruised eye. He reportedly came to the food truck to grab a bite.

According to Web speculation, Downey's wounds are makeup for his role in the film, where he will fight Captain America (Chris Evans). In the film, two groups of Avengers will be formed after U.S. government passes an act to control the actions of Avengers. Iron Man/Tony Stark will head one group (Downey Jr.) and Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) the other.
Jealousy will make Iron Man go against Captain America, as Downey revealed in his previous interview to IGN. “Stark grew up under the shadow of this very close father son-relationship that Howard [Stark] had with Steve [Rogers, Captain America] so I'm sure that it's driven by some unconscious motives. At the same time, they're two vastly different generations of moral psychology. And arguably, Cap's is more righteous. But I think Tony is a realist. So that's always a fun dynamic to play,” said the actor.
Joe and Anthony Russo have directed the film from the screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely based on the comic book of same name by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The cast also includes Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Rudd. Kevin Feige has produced it and it opens May 6, 2016.
