One plays one of the movies’ most formidable villains; one has played some of the movies’ most lovable heroes, from Sherlock Holmes to Tony Stark. As they get set to battle on the big screen once more in Avengers: Endgame, we’re pitting Josh Brolin and Robert Downey Jr. against each other – in a bit of friendly competition – first by Tomatometer and box office, and then by their most iconic roles and a special wildcard round. Who will come out on top? And who will be left in the dust? Watch to find out.

Avengers: Endgame is in theaters April 26
