    Robert Downey Jr. Surprises Iron Man 3 Super-Fans at Convention in Russia

    Those lucky fanboys (and fangirls, we suspect). 

    As if we didn't love him enough, Robert Downey Jr. surprised Russian fans at a convention for Iron Man 3 at the October Multiplex while in Moscow promoting the film—and, judging by his face, the actor enjoyed hearing the crowd react to his unexpected appearance perhaps more than they enjoyed seeing him stroll onto the stage.

    Arms crossed and smiling ear-to-ear, the crown jewel of the Marvel Universe looked as handsome as always (and only a little bit cocky) in a stellar black jacket as he soaked up the applause.

    Not to mention, every time he looked out at the crowd he saw hundreds of Iron Man masks staring back at him—the overall effect of which was kinda creepy, but also really cool. 

    For those of us who weren't able to enjoy the actor's presence, we can continue counting down until the flick, directed by Shane Black and costarring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearcehits theaters May 3. 

    Maybe RDJ will make a surprise appearance at a theater near you!
