Today is that eighth day, but according to Marvel Social Media Manager Adri Cowan, that "big announcement" has come and gone.

 

What she's referring to is the new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. No explanation was given as to what changed between RDJ's initial announcement of the "big announcement" on Thursday and the trailer debut itself on Wednesday.
