There is once again talk of Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man 4.
A few weeks ago saw Robert Downey Jr. mention if they did an Iron Man 4, he would want it to be his swan song where he plays more the villain role.
At the time, Robert Downey Jr. “didn’t think it was in the cards,” but now things may have changed.
In an featurette/interview with ABC News (watch below) for Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. is seen stating, ” I feel like I can do one more.”
Reportedly, the reason for no Iron Man 4 was due to problems with Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter who didn’t want to pay RDJ all the money to star in another solo film. It’s possible now that Kevin Feige has ousted Perlmutter and the Marvel creative comics/TV people from any involvement in Marvel Studios, that Robert Downey Jr. may be able to star in Iron Man 4.
Let’s hope so.
“Captain America: Civil War” has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
