When Entertainment Weekly asked if he would be open to an Iron Man 4, Robert Downey Jr. didn’t say “no”.
“It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.”
“It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?,” Downey said. “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out.”
As far as we know, Robert Downey Jr. is currently signed on for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers 3. After that, he doesn’t have to play Tony Stark anymore. He’s certainly not dismissing the idea of returning for the character.
“The future is, as usual, uncertain.”
Robert Downey Jr. will next be seen as Tony Stark in Avengers: Age of Ultron set to open on May 1, 2015.
