Robert Downey Jr. consoles distraught Iron Man fan

Jun 13 2013, 11:28am CDT | by

Robert Downey Jr. made a toddler cry because he wasn't the 'real' Iron Man.

The actor - best known for playing the superhero and his billionaire alter ego Tony Stark - left 18-month-old superfan Jaxson Denno in floods of tears because he wasn't wearing his character's trademark red and gold suit in public.

Heather Denno, Jaxson's mother, was left to console her sobbing son, who was devastated to discover his favorite Marvel comics hero was a work of fiction.

She told People magazine: "He was fine as soon as he talked to him. [He] was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit."

The 48-year-old star - who appeared visibly worried about having dashed Jaxson's dreams - ran into the mother and son while out for a walk in their neighborhood of Sunderland and Shelburne Falls where he is shooting his new drama, 'The Judge'.

His young admirer needn't worry too much, however, as his beloved hero will shortly be returning to the big screen.

Riding high off the success of 'Iron Man 3', which has become one of the top five highest-grossing films of all time following its release last month, Robert is allegedly set to sign a guaranteed $100 million deal for him to reprise the part in two sequels to superhero team-up film 'The Avengers'.

Jeremy Renner was ‘a department store makeup artist’: ‘It beat bartending’

Sep 23 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Last week, producers confirmed that Matt Damon is maybe/probably returning to the Jason Bourne franchise. Damon was celebrated in the Bourne role, and many of us were upset that he refused to return for a fourth installment several years ago. That was the whole reason producers got Jeremy Renner to take over as another Bourne-like assassin in the same program. I felt like I was one of the only people who like ...

'Guardians of the Galaxy' passes the Bechdel Test—but it fails women

As much as I enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy in all its space-operatic wonder, that enjoyment was marred by what I can only describe as a miasma of douchiness.This may sound like an odd thing to say about a franchise that is already dominated by male heroes, but GotG is the first Marvel movie that feels like it’s aimed at dudes.Take a look at the rest of the Marvel Studios films. We’re 10 movies in, and every one of them is successful because it has mass appeal ...

Tombstones toffs, more…Liam Neeson proves himself a man of many talents – even when stepping into the shoes of other actors… - - - That was the week in which… IMAX head Greg Foster stated that audiences want films with more of a feel-good factor.  Or more accurately: “Maybe people are getting a little sick of the post-apocalyptic, dark, angst-ridden, suicidal movies. There’s maybe a few too many of those.” Which suggests a world in which most films are an amalgamation of The Dark Knight, B ...
