This handsome, beautiful man has brought us insanity in the form of Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes, Sergeant Lincoln Osirus, and many more.

Iron Man 3 releases in the United States in just a few days, so we here at ThoseReviewGuys decided to get together and host another week (we’ll try at least) long celebration of the man behind the Iron mask, Robert Downey Jr. We love this man dearly, and we hope you do too. So what I’m saying, if I’m saying anything at all, is welcome back to the Stark Expo!
