Robert Downey Jr. surprises kids at London hospital

Robert Downey Jr. with Ethan Miller and Chloe BowersWhile in England for the British premiere of Captain America: Civil War in London on Tuesday, Robert Downey Jr. took the time to visit young patients and their families at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), with plenty of Captain America swag to give away.

He posed for a photo with fan Ethan Miller, 7, who wore his Iron Man costume for the meeting. Robert also spent time with Chloe Bowers, aged 5, and several other children who are staying in the Lion, Giraffe and Elephant wards of the hospital.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity posted the photos on Facebook, saying: “A big thank you to Robert Downey Jr for taking time out from promoting his new film Captain America: Civil War… Everyone (patients and staff alike!) was very excited. We’re very grateful to Disney for organising such a superstar visit.”

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

    Great pics. I hope the actors realize how much they mean to kids. It makes their imaginations soar and they believe they too can become a superhero…and with luck, they can beat their illnesses. Good on them for visiting the hospitals. FYI what I mostly like about it, is they take time away from the press and talking about the flick and visiting kids who (most likely) aren’t paying money to see the film..because they are in the hospital.
