Rumors have offered Robert Downey Jr. could be back in Avengers: Secret Wars.

Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark In Iron Man

While Kevin Feige has seemingly shot down the idea of a return, while participating in Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” feature, Jodie Foster asks Robert Downey Jr. if he would think of putting the suit back on again for Tony Stark? RDJ replies:

It’s just crazily in my DNA. Probably the most like-me character I’ve ever played, even though he’s way cooler than I am. I’ve become surprisingly open-minded to the idea. Between “Nyad” and [“Night Country”] and, for me, “Oppenheimer” and then “Sympathizer,” it really is crazy because we look pretty good. I was actually looking at the stills we were taking, making sure: “Do we still look kind of OK?” I’m like, “We look pretty good.”

Avengers: Secret Wars gets released on May 7, 2027. No director is attached as of yet.
