MANILA—As early as 2014, Gerald Anderson has proven to be an avid fan of Iron Man, even putting on the recognizable red costume made popular by Robert Downey, Jr. in the film series.

Early this week, Anderson finally got to see in the flesh Downey, whom he referred to as an “inspiration.”

The Kapamilya actor was among the fans who attended a grand meet with the stars of “Avengers: Endgame,” including Downey, in Seoul.

Anderson, 30, is known to have an Iron Man collection. Aside from apparel and full-blown costumes, he also has a life-sized figure of the superhero.
