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. That prompted us to think about just how much longer we’ll have the actor around to play Tony Stark, the role that he was simply born to play.
