This is the moment toddler Jaxson Denno found out that superheroes don't exist - and the moment Robert Downey Jr wished they did.

The 18-month-old Iron Man fan teared up when he met his idol's alter-ego, Downey Jr, who was in the boy's home town filming his latest film, The Judge.

Jaxson was upset because Downey Jr wasn't wearing his supersuit.

His mother, Heather Denno, told People magazine that he "was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit."

She added that Jaxson was fine as soon as Downey Jr talked to him.
