From now on if anyone ever asks you who your favourite Avenger is, the answer will always be Iron Man, because his portrayor Robert Downey Jr. is a true class act. RDJ recently posted a someone funny but seriously heart warming picture of himself dressed in a Tigger the Tiger costume to his Instagram account.
The reason for the picture is truly what makes him so amazing. RDJ wrote the caption as his alter ego Tony Stark and it read ‘Mr. Stark here. This is for Daniel (@envy_coatings) who was having a rough day recently. When I’m in the dumps, I’ve found this little getup to be helpful. P.S. Would you like to come to the LA premiere of Captain America: Civil War as my guest? If so, have your people call my people. All the best.’
Seriously awesome, right? That RDJ would take time out to post this awesome pic and invite a fan to the LA premiere of Captain America: Civil War is pretty cool, but what’s even more awesome is the story behind ‘Daniel’.
Daniel is a7 year old Iron Man fan from the UK who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Daniel’s mom had just recently shared her own picture to instagram with the hopes of getting Downey’s attention because her son idolizes him and was recently feeling sad because kids at school were being mean.
