big year for you, new baby, huge movie. How are you feeling? Very Happy. Yeah, now tell me how is it going to be for Iron Man having to work as a team? Well, I guess that's the challenge right? As he's not used to that sort of thing. Right. So it's up to the filmmakers. Hi. I didn't want to keep you for too long, sorry. No, you picked the perfect ones to step out of. They were very silly, but now we're having an earnest conversation. Very serious over here. They said that they had to pick the right end to "what's the threat" and you know, why are all these folks coming together. Now who do you go head to head with the most in this film? Probably Captain America. You two don't get along too well right? Well, I mean if we don't want them getting along by the end, it's not going to really work, but in the comics that's always kind of the big, bristly duo.but everybody's annoyed with everybody at some point in this thing. I like it. Now what was it like working with Joss? I heard that you two collaborated a lot on the script and everything like that. Well he had a really solid idea of how to tell the story, so he gets my respect for that. Hi. And so. Wow they went crazy for you. It's not that I don't want to talk about Joss, it's pretty fun to be able to elicit that sort of reaction, Joss. Pretty nice. Well, enjoy the evening guys. Thank you.
