Robert Downey Jr won't let Chris Evans upstage him. He promised Bridger something special for his birthday.

Hey Ironman, we love you 3,000!

Robert Downey Jr. completed the Avengers assembly that’s giving real-life hero, 6-year-old Bridger Walker, more reasons to smile.

The little boy saved his sister from an attacking dog earlier this month and sustained injuries to the face.

Last week, Chris Evans—Captain America, messaged Bridger promising to send an authentic Captain America shield.

Of course, Robert Downey Jr. who plays Iron Man in the Avengers movies, won’t let Cap take away his thunder.

“Bridger, you’re a rock star,” Downey Jr. says in a video posted on Friday by Bridger’s aunt Nicole Walker. “My name’s Robert Downey Jr. I played Tony, which makes me an old friend of Cap’s. I hear he sent a shield your way. I’m gonna do one better, you call me on your next birthday. I got something special for you.”

He added: “By the way, that’s a promise. A promise beats a shield.”

Besides Iron Man and Captain America, Spider-Man has also reached out to Bridger and offered him tickets to the latest movie. Avengers’ Hulk, Mark Ruffalo, also sent a message to the courageous little boy.

You deserve all these good things, Bridger!
