Robert Downey Jr. is full of surprises!
First he shocks a Moscow fan convention by showing up unannounced! Now he's doing it closer to home- NYC!
The superhero made a drop-in at special screening of Iron Man 3 held for kids and teens that volunteered with the Police Athletic League during Hurricane Sandy!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Iron Man himself applaud the heroic kids!
The appearance was especially meaningful for RDJ, who grew up in NYC. He said:
"It’s my hometown.
Everywhere we drive, I have a memory of playing Frisbee in front of that office building or trying to sneak into the back door of a ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ midnight showing, because I knew someone who was working concessions.
Also, coming back here reminds me of my origins, so it’s thematically concurrent with what Tony Stark’s doing."
They say you can never go home again, but if you're an Avenger you can pretty much do anything!
