The next two years are set to be huge for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the releases of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Robert Downey Jr. has been with the MCU for 10 years now and he's ready for the world to see what Marvel has in store for long-time fans, promising that "the best has yet to come," in a new image on social media. The hype for the next projects for the MCU cannot be understated, but will they be able to deliver the goods for something that has been hyped up as much as Infinity War and Avengers 4? Robert Downey Jr. certainly believes so.
Robert Downey Jr. took to Instagram to share a photo from the set of Avengers 4. The photo is similar to another picture that was recently released, hinting at a new base for the Avengers. Downey Jr. mentions that he's leading the charge and that everything is about to get a lot better. The caption for the picture reads, "Hey Party People, I'm still doing my part to help shoulder the MCU, are you? Get ready, the best is yet to come..." Again, Marvel better hope that the hype surrounding Infinity War and Avengers 4 does not kill the movies before they reach theaters.
Expectations are already running high for Infinity War and Avengers 4, and Robert Downey Jr.'s new photo tease isn't going to take away from the excitement. Even with anticipation being through the roof, there is reason to hope both movies will not disappoint. Not only will the movies feature basically every single character from the MCU teaming up, but they're also being helmed by the Russo Brothers with a script from Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. As the Star Wars franchise has recently shown, you can't please everybody when a franchise is as high profile as the MCU. There is a chance that the movies can come out and disappoint hardcore fans of the original comic series.
