Tonight, Robert Downey Jr. promised to post a Facebook live video that everyone would want to see. And, as it turns out, he absolutely delivered.
RDJ went live from the set of Avengers: Infinity War, where he answered a handful of questions about the film, which he says is going to be "so epic."

"I can't give too much away, but this literally feels like the second greatest story ever told. And there's so many characters, so much interesting story, so many surprises."
"I think what's changed is the universe around him, honestly, if you think about it. I mean, there's so many offshoots now. Peter Parker's in the mix, Guardians are on fire."
And of course, RDJ brought a few surprise guests in his video. First were Joe and Anthony Russo, who are directing the film. They took time to answer a question or two, even debating which Avengers they'd take on a family vacation, before walking away to set.
And second was one of the biggest pieces of news - the reveal that Tom Holland, who plays the MCU's Spider-Man, is in fact appearing in the movie. Holland was revealed to be RDJ's cameraman for the video, and showed a brief glimpse of himself with motion capture dots on his face.
And the third cameo, albeit a quick one, was of Chris Pratt, suited up to reprise his Guardians of the Galaxy role as Peter Quill/Star Lord in the film. Pratt, somewhat jokingly, appeared ready to answer Facebook live questions, before Downey motioned to Holland to end the video.
While these teases only give us a piece of what to expect on the set of Infinity War, they still were a delight nonetheless.
