On Saturday, the Iron Man actor retweeted a meme featuring Captain America actor Evans in a side-by-side comparison between the serious nature of his Marvel Cinematic Universe character and the actor with a more lighthearted expression. The meme highlights the difference between the character and Evans, something that Downey Jr. commented on.
"One word: accurate," he wrote.

Downey Jr. is definitely in a position to know just how accurate the meme is. The actors have appeared together in several MCU films over the years and are friends offscreen as well. Earlier this year, Evans even took to Twitter to wish Downey Jr. a happy birthday with a compliment about how the actor appears to be "aging in reverse."
Of course, while fans appreciate their friendship, they're also big fans of Downey Jr.'s approval of the meme and have replied to it in kind, sharing their own memes and moments, including a few highlighting the similarities between Tony Stark and Downey Jr. himself, at least before the events of Infinity War. With all the loss all of the Avengers suffered because of Thanos' catastrophic snap, it will be interesting to see how their personalities change when the survivors return for Avengers 4.
For now, though, read on to enjoy fan reactions to Downey Jr.'s response to the "exact" Evans meme.
