On The Road Memories || Zayn Malik
Louis: It’s pretty embarrassing but I bought a full Iron Man costume.
Int: Why? Why did you buy that?
Louis: Yeah, that’s exactly what my girlfriend said. Because it’s coooool. It lights up!
Int: Are you putting it on before sex or what?
Louis: Well, to be honest, I actually thought about it. But I decided it might be a bit much.
so we thought the people at marvel had just drawn zayn as a random comic-book character
but actually they’ve done more than that
“The guy from that boyband One Direction’s name is Zayn Malik. If you look him up on google you can find a bunch of images of him. I was picturing Robbie as a beefier version of him. Physically strong, with a quiet, troubled expression, […] kind of boyish. Just my initial idea. Opinions and suggestions greatly welcome, as always. I’ll send you the arc breakdowns in my next e-mail.”
so they didn’t just draw zayn, they used him as a reference to CREATE an ACTUAL comic-book character with a name, a personality and an arc
and he’s the protagonist of AN ACTUAL COMIC SERIES
just think of how HAPPY this must have made zayn
