All the stuff with Robert Downey Jr. It was all improvised. Because all that was written was: they play football, they eat, they do that… And so we ended up improvising because Robert is incredible in improv. And so we did this thing with them playing and how important it is for Nebula to win something. Slowly, I was able to improvise my character…”
