Robert Downey Jr. Teases Marvel Announcement For Tomorrow Morning [Updated]

Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are in an exciting place with the final stretch of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC leading towards the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters at the end of the month. And while that happens, Marvel TV is also beginning their Netflix mini universe, starting with Daredevil (launches Friday). The Marvel machine has no end in sight and franchise star Robert Downey Jr. is teasing even more to come with a "big announcement" coming tomorrow morning.

The studio finished 2014 with a bang, announcing years worth of movies (dubbed "Phase 3") culminating in a two-part Avengers: Infinity War event in 2018-19 at a fan and media event that put years worth of rumors and speculation to rest. And of course, it didn't take long for that plan to evolve, now with Sony and Marvel working together to add Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well.

And that's where the name Robert Downey Jr. comes into play yet again. We know Spider-Man is being rebooted to fit within the MCU with a much younger actor playing Peter Parker. Rumors add that the film could live under the title Spectacular Spider-Man, and more interestingly, could feature Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man in a major role.

RDJ already re-signed with Marvel Studios after Iron Man 3 to return for two more Avengers movies (Age of Ultron being the first) and he's since extended it to co-star in Captain America: Civil War - a movie that could only have happened if he signed. Now, he may be extending yet again if the Spider-Man reports are true and tomorrow we could find out:
