Marvel Studios’ presence at Comic-Con has always been a highlight every single year and once again, they were back in full force, closing off Saturday night in Hall H with their (mostly) annual panel. The big movie this year of course is Iron Man 3, reuniting the cast of Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow, this time directed by Shane Black.
ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype attended the press conference (which we’ll be writing up soon) and then afterwards we took part in the craziest press line we’ve ever experienced as Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle and director Shane Black quickly popped into the room to field a couple questions each.
(Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was also there, paired with Black, but he was perfectly fine letting his director handle the questions. It’s also worth nothing that our question to RDJ was interrupted by a gag played by Zach Galifianakis, who was in the same room pimping Jay Roach’s comedy The Campaign, and that’s when the press line pretty much collapsed as RDJ got mobbed by the waiting press who were hoping to get a question in themselves.)
