The edit can only be described as a masterpiece, with the music going perfectly well with the sounds of the suit being worn. Many even talked about how the quality of the clips was out of this world, with this scene having rarely been witnessed with such great clarity.

Robert Downey Jr’s Departure Left A Hole In The Heart Of The MCU

There is a very clear coincidence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that can be credited to the unfortunate decline that it has been facing for the last few years. As Robert Downey Jr. left the franchise, the viewership of the projects that came out has been steadily decreasing.

While some could say that the actor took some of the fans with him, a fact that is undeniable is that the quality of the action, story, and projects as a whole has also lessened. One of the biggest reasons for this could be the fact that Marvel had been heavily dependent on the dynamic presence of the actor, whether it was conscious or unconscious.

Robert Downey Jr. stood in the middle of the MCU; a living, breathing entity that gave a life to a franchise like no other. The emptiness left in his absence is something that can never be filled, regardless of how many beloved characters are brought from the comics.
