If you’re Robert Downey Jr. and your birthday is the same day Captain America: The Winter Solider gets released, what do you do?  If you answered have a ton of kids over to watch the movie with you, congrats: you win.  Every time I think Downey can’t get any cooler, he does stuff like this.

While I know at some point he’s going to stop playing Tony Stark/Iron Man, I don’t know what Marvel is going to do.  He wholly embodies the character and he’s taken ownership of it completely.  I hope Downey continues to play Tony Stark for a very long time.  Hit the jump to check out a great photo of this very special Robert Downey Jr. Captain America: The Winter Soldier screening with a bunch of kids.

Here’s what Downey had to say on his Facebook page:

What better way to spend my birthday than recognizing the cosmic miracle of Captain America 2 opening the same day? Gonna wrangle about twenty kids to watch it with and partaaaaaaaaaaaaay Marvel-style!!!
