“A week or so before he turned 50 – which means this is also the 25th anniversary of our friendship (and my 25th year making movies).”

The executive producer of ‘Avengers’ franchise concluded his words by praising his “mentor” as follows:

“He has remained a stalwart friend and mentor after all these years. I love you, Lloyd – can’t wait to celebrate again in another 25 years!
