Hey Iron Man fans. This post might make you a little jealous, but I think it's worth it! This magical night started when I entered in the Verizon Fios contest to win tickets to the Iron Man 3 red carpet premiere. Being a bit skeptical, I was like "Dude, this is never going to happen!". A week later I get a call saying:

"Hello, is this Vahn?"

"Yes it is, who is it I am speaking to?", I answered.

“You've been selected to attend the Iron Man 3 red carpet premiere."

"Hello Vahn, we are calling from Verizon Fios to tell you that you and 19 other fans have been selected to attend the Iron Man 3 Red Carpet Premiere." I freaked out and told all of my friends that love RDJ that I was attending this event and they flipped. HUGE shout out to those friends: Andrea Hardwick & Tristen Ross! This was so awesome, I promised them that I would get them autographs from :

Now to the premiere. So awesome! I was behind the fence, right where the press and the stars were, and Yahoo Movies! were doing their live broadcast of the event in front of me! walks up and I asked Yahoo Movies! to ask him a question about The Avengers 2! They said, "We will, just send us a tweet so we can broadcast your question around the world." I was freaking out when the beautiful hostess said "@Vahn_Gharakhai wants to know, how far are you on the process of creating The Avengers 2?" The master of The Avengers was right in front of me answering my question to the world! I couldn't wait to get home to see the video of my question to Joss, I immediately downloaded it to treasure that moment forever!

[Skip to 4:40 for my question]

When RDJ came along I screamed so loud! He signed a photo for me, Andrea, and Tristen. I quickly showed him a picture of Tristen, as Enjrolas from our high school production of Les Miserables and RDJ said, "Good lookin' kid!". Robert is so chill. I just started taking photos of him and his beautiful wife Susan. Then the cast assembled on the stage and me and hundreds of other fans screamed their guts out!

This was a truly magical night for a future filmmaker like myself. I can't wait for Iron Man 3. I am seeing it in IMAX 3-D, opening day, May 3rd! So what do you guys think? Did you watch the live stream? What are you looking forward to in Iron Man 3?
