The reason Elon cameoed in Iron Man 2 was that Downey Jr had consulted him about playing Tony while shooting the original movie.

When preparing for filming, the star and director Jon Favreau (who also plays Happy Hogan), were given a tour of Space X by the billionaire in 2007.

According to Bloomberg, the Iron Man star had heard about a Howard Hughes type who had built his own industrial complex around 10 miles from the Marvel set.

Downey had lunch with Elon in his office and picked up on the billionaire's "accessible eccentricities".

The star would go on to request that a Tesla Roadster feature in Tony's workshop in Iron Man.

He added: "They became contemporaries. Elon was someone Tony probably hung out with and partied with, or more likely they went on some weird jungle trek together to drink concoctions with the shamans."

As a result, he would be offered a cameo in Iron Man 2, which fans to this day are surprised was there all along.

Elon gets up, shakes her hand and says: "Pepper, congratulations on the promotion."
