Captain America and Iron Man are one of the iconic Marvel duos, and their offscreen counterparts are comparing their friendship to other Disney pairs.
Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. have had an adorable little buddy back-and-forth on Twitter, comparing their friendship to familiar faces from Disney’s animated movies.
Downey Jr. posted a side-by-side image of himself and Evans alongside a snap of Bambi and his gal pal Faline from Bambi II, the 2006 sequel to Disney’s 1942 classic.
Evans responded, posting simply, “What can I say? The man knows me.”
He certainly should. Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Evans’ Steve Rogers first appeared together in 2012’s The Avengers, and have been through a hell of a lot since.
Because Twitter banter can’t be stopped, won’t be stopped, Evans threw back some love to his fellow Avenger with another iconic Disney friendship duo, Toy Story‘s Buzz and Woody.
Funnily enough, the original image isn’t a real snap of the pair. Downey Jr. had posted a Photoshopped image of the two, which Twitter user and Steve/Tony fan account Tons of Tony had posted in January.
Fans predictably lost their collective shit over the whole thing, with many pointing out that Evans has long been Downey Jr.’s biggest fan.
Chris Evans runs the RDJ fanclub and everyone knows it
