How to create new comic fans: cast ‘em in a comic book movie

Here’s a (slightly expensive )way to create new comic fans … cast’em in a comic book movie, which will send them to the comic shop to do “research.” X17 Online has video of Iron Man 2‘s Robert Downey Jr. at Meltdown Comics in L.A., buying various Avengers comics and talking to fans:

ROBERT! HEY ROBERT! WHAT’D YOU BUY IN THERE MAN?! HEY ROBERT WHAT’D YOU BUY IN THERE?! DID YOU BUY THE AVENGERS?! ROBERT! ROBERT!

Leave the man alone, ffs.

Interesting. He doesn’t NEED to do that. At all. They’d close the store for him, Marvel would send him anything he wanted direct…

Totally agree with you Def, Geez he’s getting a lot of hassle, still it’s nice to see that he’s goes to the store himself, meet with some fans. Good stuff.

PR stunt?

Maybe he was researching fans.

Has anyone ever noticed that chewing gum with sunglasses makes anyone look like a jerk?

first off, I was really young getting into iron man, And Robert is a favorite actor of mine, so .. him becoming iron man ( with his lifestyle as it was lol) I thought HOLLY HELL!!! Great find!
Nice to see him out and about shopping.
