Their co-stars Paul Bettany, Josh Brolin, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, James Spader and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were all in attendance too.

Chris said that they also hadn’t seen the clip for the movie yet and said “we were as impressed as the fans were”.

Of the comic-con fans he said “This is the real fan base and this is the most genuine group …they love it for all the right reasons. And when you come to something like this, it’s always nice when they cheer that much and carry on.”
