HTC has reportedly signed Robert Downey Jr. to be its new spokesperson, Bloomberg's Tim Culpan reports, citing two unnamed sources.
The deal pays Downey $12 million, Culpan says, and also gives him creative control over the commercials. He's expected to appear in them as himself, not as Iron Man or Sherlock Holmes.
But we hope he changes his mind about that. It sure would be fun to see Iron Man swoop into that hilarious Windows Phone Wedding commercial and take out both team Samsung and team iPhone with one blast of his ray gun.
