Howard said Intern Show host Steve Brandano didn’t go to the “Iron Man 2” screening on Monday because he wanted to watch the comic book movie with “real fans.”

On Tuesday, Steven came in to tell Howard there was more to the story. “There were many reasons but thank you for inviting me,” he said.

“I’m a real Iron Man fan,” Howard responded.

But Steve said Howard wasn’t the problem. “You were not the only person in the theater,” he said, explaining some people on staff were concerned about how they’d sneak their cellphone into the theater.

Later, Steve admitted that Howard did figure into his decision. “It’s weird with Howard there. Like, I want to cheer and stuff like that and I don’t want to piss you off in the thing. I don’t know. I turn into a 12-year-old boy in these comic book movies,” he said.

“I want to see it with people who cheer and stuff like that and be excited!” Steve continued.

But Howard thought Steve should reconsider his priorities: “You need to think about your future,” he said.
