Robert Downey Jr. says "the best is yet to come" when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. The MCU may currently be the biggest ongoing cinematic franchise, but there was a time when this was far from a certainty. Downey has been there since the very beginning and is one of the biggest reasons why the MCU took off as well as it did. Thanks to his perfect embodiment of Tony Stark, Iron Man launched the MCU in grand fashion.
Since its inception in 2008, the MCU has churned out seventeen movies but will have twenty released by July 2018. They are currently in the middle of Phase 3, a ten movie lineup that culminates with Avengers 4 next year. Through the years, Marvel Studios has made some highly regarded films, but Downey says the best is still on the way.
Sharing a new photo on Instagram from the set of Avengers 4, Downey and hyped the future of the MCU in the process. While the photo itself is almost identical to another recent post from Downey's manager teasing a possible new Avengers base, his caption here is what will get fans excited. He points out how he is still leading the charge, but also teases everyone that quality and spectacle will only go up.
