Which Avenger Volunteered to Voice Mark Zuckerberg’s AI?

Things are getting weird around here this week; it’s almost as if someone is obsessed with artificial intelligence. NO, I AM NOT A ROBOT, SWEARSIES.

It’s not my fault AI is so prominent in the news, and I certainly have nothing to do with Mark Zuckerberg’s strange fantasy to have a celebrity-voiced smart home. In fact, I will eat some terrible article of clothing before I ever let my home go smart on me. It’s bad enough there are bossy kids running around; I don’t need a computer telling me what to do (no, my iPhone alarm doesn’t count).

Back to the news you came for … so Zuckerberg went to the Facebooks (where else?) asking for voice suggestions for his AI, “Jarvis,” and, though you’d probably expect everyone to scream Paul Bettany — or my personal choice, James D’Arcy, the proper English-voiced houseman:

don’t you know —

plus, he can do this:

But none of that really matters because another Avenger quickly stepped up and volunteered to help out the Zuck, and you might be surprised. It wasn’t Bettany’s Jarvis or perennial volunteer, Captain America:

it wasn’t even cuddly Mark Ruffalo … er, Hulk:

Racing to the rescue was none other than Iron Man himself:

to which Zuckerberg responded:

zreal

and that, I suppose, is the story of how Iron Man began his real-world takeover. Friends, Robert Downey, Jr., is the harbinger of death. Starbuck, you’re off the hook.
