With Iron Man 3 currently shooting, Robert Downey Jr.'s appearance at Comic-Con 2012 wasn't exactly shocking!
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!
