Robert Downey Jr. Is Giving ‘Avengers’ Fans A Chance To Be Iron Man IRL


Hey, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans — your super(hero)sized Super Bowl bet just got seriously one-upped, and you’re not going to be happy when you find out who did it. (Okay, maybe you’ll be fine with it, because it’s for charity and you seem like perfectly nice people.)

Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., is giving ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ fans a chance to live like Iron Man for a day, all for the benefit of the children’s hospice center Julia’s House. You can enter by going to Downey’s page, where the actor explains the rules in a handy-dandy instruction video:


“You donate $10 or more for a chance to win the RDJ experience,” he explains. “I correspondingly fly you and a friend out to L.A., put you up in a four-star hotel, and proceed to awesome the crap out of you.”

Hm. What does this “awesome”-ing entail, you ask? According to Downey, a whole lot. In fact, I’d reckon this would be the best $10 (or more) you ever spent.

“Indoor skydiving, a helicopter tour, maybe a pitstop at Randy’s Donuts,” Downey continues. “After riding your sugar high all the way to a fitting for a tux or gown we’re going to meet up for a little pre-premiere caviar… we’ll giggle, chat, take pictures… perhaps even engage in a battle of wits.”

Are you not thoroughly freaking out yet? Well, then know that you’ll also get to wear said tux or dress to the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiere, where you’ll get to walk down the red carpet with the likes of Downey, Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and… I’ll just stop. You know who the Avengers are.

And FYI, even if you don’t win the big prize, you’ll still get some Avengers swag as a keepsake, and help the kids. So enter if you dare… or don’t, because I really want to win, and you’re all just competition. (Wait, why am I even writing this?)
