Robert Downey Jr. visits a children’s hospital; proves heroes are real

in Disney, Marvel, Movies

With Captain America: Civil War right around the corner, it looks like star Robert Downey Jr. decided to make a little stop to a children’s hospital!

Iron Man himself dropped in at the Great Ormond Street Hospital, and the kids were just ecstatic to see a real life hero in person — including 7-year old Ethan Miller. See, Ethan is from Southern Essex, and is fighting a rare blood disease called ITP. The child also struggles with type 1 diabetes. According to People, he was in high spirits posing with the celebrity (in full costume, like a boss), along with his parents Kristie and Lee. Awesome!
