Robert Downey Jr Leaves Iron Man

Earlier this week, Robert Downey Jr. said that he didn’t think an Iron Man 4 was in the cards, calling the forthcoming Captain America: Civil War something akin to his own little Iron Man sequel.

Iron Man 4

For a few years now, Robert Downey Jr. has gone back and forth on his future as Iron Man at Marvel Studios. Back in 2013 he hinted at potentially leaving behind the armor once he turned 50, though that wasn’t a solid deadline for his departure from the comic book franchise.

Captain America Civil War Posters

But that was just the beginning of our Civil War coverage this week.

There are rumblings of a new trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving this week, but in the meantime, we’re running interviews from our set visit all week. Today we’ve got interviews with Robert Downey Jr., and some good stuff with Chadwick Boseman, a.k.a. Black Panther.

Chris Evans Deadpool

It was another big weekend at the box office for Deadpool as the R-rated comic book mercenary took the top spot by adding another $55 million to its fattening wallet. In addition, the film added another $85 million overseas, bringing the worldwide total to nearly $492 million in just two weeks. And analysts believe these numbers put the movie on track to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie in history, potentially surpassing The Passion of the Christ‘s domestic record and The Matrix Reloaded‘s worldwide numbers.

Over the weekend, an unlikely ally dished out some congratulations to Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and the film’s surprising success with Captain America himself, Chris Evans, taking to Twitter with some kind words. Reynolds responded in kind, but Robert Downey Jr. noticed their exchange and he has some concerns. Find out what unfolded on Twitter below. Read More »
