Will Mel Gibson direct Iron Man 4?
While it may be a long shot, in the latest issue of Total Film, Mel Gibson at least considers the possibility of Iron Man 4.
The issue has a featured interview with Mel Gibson about his latest movie, with the article mentioning the Marvel rumors surrounding Mel Gibson directing Iron Man 4, as Robert Downey Jr. teased a while back he would do Iron Man 4 if Gibson directed, which saw Gibson follow up that he would “of course” consider it and also said Iron Man 4 with Robert Downey Jr. would be “bananas.”
“It might be fun,” Mel Gibson told TF about Iron Man 4, with the article noting Gibson merely shrugged at the idea. “You’d have to figure out a way to be different with that.”
Mel Gibson’s response about being different for Iron Man 4 is rather interesting as it seems to mirror comments from Robert Downey Jr. where the actor offered Iron Man 4 should be Tony’s swan song as a villain.
Mel Gibson also recently offered his take on the Marvel movies, which if he ever did direct one, sounds like it would be a lot different than the “popcorn” MCU movies we’re used to.
“To talk about the violence question, look at any Marvel movie,” Gibson told The Washington Post. “They’re more violent than anything that I’ve done, but [in my movies,] you give a s— about the characters, which makes it matter more. That’s all I’ll say.”
