Iron Man Goes to South Korea
Robert Downey Jr. showed South Korean fans some of his "Gangnam Style" dance moves early this morning in South Korea while standing next to a life-size Iron Man poster. As expected, the crowed went wild.
Downey Jr. is in South Korea kicking off the 'Iron Man 3' world tour. The tour began today in South Korea, and the famed actor wasted no time pointing out how special South Korean audiences were to the film. He publicly emphasized the fact that the world tour for 'Iron Man 3' was starting in South Korea.
During a quick speech, he also stated that Korean audiences are one of the main reasons why the Iron Man franchise took off five years ago. He also went on to say that the current film is "...really worth a couple of hours to spend to go to see at a theatre."
Downey Jr. told fans that this film will focus on the human side of Tony Stark, and that's what makes this installment unique from the rest. He also let fans know that this film won't take place in the big cities that film fans have become so used to.
"I think a lot of what occurs in Iron Man 3 is that he actually goes to the parts of America that aren’t New York or Los Angeles. It is a road trip of sorts, and I think he gets back to an understanding that he is just a worker amongst workers and he is just another person, and I think that's actually very helpful to him,” he said.
Not only did South Korean 'Iron Man' fans get treated to the kick-off of the world tour, but South Korean fans will also be able to view the film one week earlier than North American fans.
'Iron Man 3' debuts in South Korea on April 25th -- that's one whole week earlier than the North American launch date! Next up for the 'Iron Man 3' world tour is Beijing.
