Iron Man completes 11 years today. It has been 11 years since Robert Downey Jr. first became the Iron Man in the red-and-gold suit, kicking off Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Saga featuring 22 films that completed with the worldwide release of Avengers: Endgame on April 26.
The star took to Instagram to share a video from their shooting location where he is seen singing Happy Birthday along with Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Paul Rudd and Chris Pratt among the other star cast of Avengers. The video seems to have been shot during Endgame’s climax fight.
Marvel’s official Twitter handle also shared a post announcing the news.
“Eleven years ago today, Marvel Studios’ Iron Man was the first MCU film released in theaters. #TodayInMarvelHistory #Marvel80″.”
Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame is busy breaking global box office records whooping profits and setting new records marking the end of an era which began with the release of the first Iron Man film in 2008, directed by Jon Favreau.
In India alone, after the first week the film is closing towards 300 crore.
