You know how sometimes life can kick you while you’re down? Well, as fans of the MCU will tell you that Infinity War brought with it a similar type of emotion. It made us all extraordinarily emotional and now, a post by Robert Downey Jr has intensified that feeling.
In a series of three videos, Downey shared a sweet celebration between five of the original Avengers and one awesome tattoo artist.
Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, and Downey all got a tattoo to commemorate Avengers: Infinity War in a nod to the bond they’ve shared over the last 10 years.
Of course, it was impossible for us to watch the videos without getting teared up. It’s been an incredible experience, as a fan of the MCU, to see what their effort and dedication have given pop culture. It’s been even more incredible watching them use their heroism off-screen, too.
It’s a testament to who they are as people and the reason that their fan base is so massive. Fans of the Avengers have tattoos of their own, dedicated to their heroes and those stories. In fact, many want this tattoo now – as noted in the comments on RDJ’s Instagram page.
The other videos show Robert taking part in giving the tattoo artist, Joshua Lord, the same tattoo. With each of them drawing a line on the image. Evans is absent from the evening (likely due to Lobby Hero) but is mentioned in the following video. Alongside a sweet little message from Downey.
Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now.
