Comic Con: Five Bombshells Dropped at the Marvel Studios Panel
5. Robert Downey Jr. Is Even Cooler than You Think
Okay, so this one’s not really a bombshell. You’d have a hard time finding someone out there who has not been won over by Downey’s effortless charisma, quick wit, and contagious enthusiasm. That said, he totally shines at Comic-Con. Like Iron Man, Downey’s a hero there, and he knows it. While most celebs enter the massive panel hall by simply walking across the stage modestly, Robert Downey Jr. makes an entrance … sorry, AN ENTRANCE!
This year, the room went dark mid-sentence of the emcee’s speech, and when the lights came back on, RDJ was dancing through the aisles in true Tony Stark fashion, complete with a slick grey suit accented by red and gold, naturally. Oh, and most of the dance was spontaneously choreographed to the music, culminating in a finale that revealed he was wearing the glowing Iron Man gloves. He’s not just an actor; he’s a showman, ‘nuff said.
