Officially, Robert Downey Jr. is only contacted to play Iron Man one more time. He’s already completed next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and then he’ll shoot The Avengers 3, whenever that ends up happening. However, the proposition of an Iron Man 4 is something the actor has been very coy about. He’s said things that hint he won’t return, then softened those statements considerably. With his latest film, The Judge, hitting theaters soon, Downey is once again under fire about his iconic role as Tony Stark and a new quote definitely makes it sound like he’ll return.
And even if he doesn’t, an excellent short film has made its way online that uses his likeness for a whole different kind of Iron Man transition. It’s really cool. Below, hear the new Iron Man 4 Robert Downey Jr quote and see him in a new short film. Read More »
