National funnyman Michael V could barely keep his excitement to himself yesterday when he made it known to his fans that he is “hoping against hope” he gets to meet “Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr.

Michael V is currently in Singapore for a press red carpet event of “Avengers: Infinity War”, where the cast of the latest Marvel film will be there themselves to meet their fans.

The comedian had already succeeded in handing his 15-minute portraits to Hollywood actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Karen Gillan, who play “Doctor Strange” and Nebula” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, over the weekend when he had his one-on-one interviews with them. For any fan, it is a moment beyond one’s wildest dreams, but it seems that for Michael V, the crowning glory of his Singapore escapade is meeting Downey Jr.

And that just happened. After his frantic call for good luck wishes yesterday, it seems Michael V succeeded in meeting the “Iron Man” himself, based on Michael V’s latest Instagram update.

In the past, Michael V has sketched numerous personalities. Apart from the “Avengers” stars, he has also paid homage to the recently-deceased physicist Stephen Hawking, and Gal Gadot who plays “Wonder Woman” in the DC Extended Universe.

He has also sketched his good friend, the late rapper Francis Magalona, who he says was the one who reintroduced him to comics.

Mission accomplished, Bitoy! JB
