With Iron Man 3 currently shooting, Robert Downey Jr.'s appearance at Comic-Con 2012 wasn't exactly shocking!
What was surprising, however, is that RDJ materialized in a room full of screaming little superhero lovers in the midst of their own Iron Man costume contest!!
He spoke about why it was important to give back to the fans. He said:
"It took everyone a while to catch on, but the audiences have been driving the direction that movies go in for quite some time now… And I think that Comic-Con is just a stark reminder that — fans first."
A stark reminder from Tony Stark, LOLz! Well punned, sir!
He even held a tiny Q&A question with the children.
One asked, "How does it feel to be a hero in all the movies?"
RDJ smiled, then replied:
"It's an odd thing. I take it as seriously as Shakespeare."
Some Shakespeare is more serious than others, but we're glad to learn you embrace being a community leader and a role model!
