According to Comic Book Resources on April 5, actor Robert Downey, Jr., known for his role as Iron Man from the Marvel Studios franchise, celebrated his birthday by inviting children to join him in seeing "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". Downey, Jr. is a colleague of Chris Evans where they had worked together in "The Avengers" and he felt he would do his cohort justice by supporting the sequel.

The moment was made apparent on his Facebook page and it shows him displaying two thumbs up and a bunch of young viewers behind him settling in for the comic book flick.

The film is out in theaters now and stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce, and Samuel L. Jackson as Director Nick Fury.

The film is set to receive $270 million worldwide by the end of the weekend and is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. The Russo brothers will also be working on "Captain America 3" as well.
