Robert Downey Jr. is embracing Instagram!
The 50-year-old Avengers star joined the photo-sharing site on Monday, posting an epic first photo only Iron Man himself could get: a candid shot of his Avengers: Age of Ultron co-stars.
“Come get me, Instagram…,” Downey Jr. captioned the image of himself, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jimmy Kimmel seated all in a row on a couch backstage at Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Downey Jr. joined Instagram in the knick of time, as he kicks off press for the anticipated Avengers follow-up, which hits theaters May 1.
The night before, he appeared at the MTV Movie Awards to accept the Generation Award, presented by his Avengers pals.
"If a man is judged by the company he keeps, than I must be doing something right because look who I'm rolling with," he said during his acceptance speech, nodding to his kneeling co-stars and friends.
"On behalf of my fellow Avengers, I invite you to dream big, work hard, keep your nose clean, be of service," he added. “Because you can define your generation.”
If Downey Jr.’s first Instagram share is a preview of the cool behind-the-scenes treats we’ll be getting ahead of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can’t wait.
