After getting on stage, the actor asked that the sound of his microphone be changed slightly, that the spotlight was only on him and that there could be some triumphant music. After all the pieces were put together he thanked the fans in his Iron Man voice.

“I am Iron Man and this is for the people,” said Robert Downey Jr. on stage. “Thanks a lot this is really a pleasure. Thank you...people, people, people.”

Instead he built it up and everyone will agree the triumphant music really helped make the moment.
