Robert Downey Jr. Discusses Returning For IRON MAN 4
With a larger than expected slate of release dates recently revealed for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a fourth Iron Man film one of the possibilities? At this point it is unknown, but Robert Downey Jr. had some thoughts to share on the matter.
When Robert Downey Jr. signed a two-picture deal to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron and an eventual Avengers 3, many fans were left wondering if the Iron Man franchise would end after the third installment. However, an incredible $1.2 billion haul and insistence from Marvel Studios' producer Kevin Feige confirmed that eventually, an Iron Man 4 will happen. But still, the question remains as to whether Downey will reprise the role, or if he will be recast.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly on the set of Age of Ultron, Downey was asked about returning for another sequel, and appeared to be openly optimistic, saying “It’s down to Kevin Feige and Ike Perlmutter and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree. When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement."
When pressed for more information, Downey seemed to take a certain level of possession over the role, stating that "It’s that thing of: why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed? Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out."
Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled for release on May 1st, 2015.
