Robert Downey Jr. Says Iron Man 4 Isn’t Happening. Don’t get too excited for another Iron Man film to be released. In an interview with Variety, Robert Downey Jr. doesn’t seem confident that an Iron Man 4 is in the works. But if he won’t do another one, would Robert let someone else fill in his shoes?
During his interview promoting his latest film The Judge, Robert Downey Jr. confirmed to Variety that there were no plans for another film in the Iron Man franchise. “There isn’t one in the pipe. No, there’s no plan for a fourth ‘Iron Man.'” As for whether he would give the role to someone else, the actor said, “I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I’m casting director for Marvel,” before his co-star in The Judge Robert Duvall told him, “Don’t give it to anybody else.”
The last time Robert Downey, Jr. played billionaire Tony Stark’s alter ego Iron Man was in 2013’s Iron Man 3, which hauled over $1.2 billion worldwide. Robert is still contracted to star in two more Marvel films, Avengers: Age of Ultron and a third Avengers film. It remains to be seen if Robert would give the mantle to another actor, but it seems like he has the chance to ask for more of Marvel if he wants to continue portraying Iron Man.
Avengers: Age of Ultron has already wrapped filming in the UK with director Joss Whedon and the rest of the cast from the first Avengers film returning. Fans can see Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man once again in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, which comes out on May 1, 2015.
