At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, we learned that over two dozen Marvel Cinematic Universe actors were going to be lending their voices to the upcoming animated Disney+ series What If?, which explores alternate realities within the MCU. One name that was absent from that long list of performers was Robert Downey Jr., leaving us to assume that the MCU’s highest-paid actor truly was finished playing Tony Stark after his swan song in Avengers: Endgame.
But according to fellow MCU member Jeff Goldblum, that’s not the case. In a new interview, Goldblum revealed that Downey is indeed returning to the MCU once more as part of the What If voice cast. Get the details below. Read More »
Not too long ago, Disney put up their awards consideration pages for the films they hope will land some nominations from the Oscars, Golden Globes and other important Hollywood organizations. When it came to Avengers: Endgame, the usual ambition was there for Best Picture, Best Director, and a slew of technical awards. But there was one surprising exclusion.
Robert Downey Jr. previously confirmed that he opted not to campaign for any acting awards for his farewell performance as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame. This was surprising to fans since his final turn as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and superhero felt like a performance that may have been worthy of at least a nomination. It appears Disney agreed and whether or not Downey intends to campaign for an Oscar, they’re going to do it for him. Robert Downey Jr. is included in the addition of consideration for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories that feature several other Avengers: Endgame cast members too.

After starring in the highest grossing film of all time this year, Robert Downey Jr. is slumming it with a bunch of animals in Victorian England early next year.
Dolittle puts a new spin on the classic tale of the man known for talking to animals. Looking like a cross between Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes and Life of Pi, the first Dolittle trailer shows off what feels like a haphazard adventure that just so happens to involve Dr. Dolittle. After you watch, you’ll understand why this movie is coming out in January next year. Read More »
Recently, Disney revealed their For Your Consideration page for Avengers: Endgame, and there was a curious omission from the list of potential nominees: Robert Downey Jr. While Endgame has a huge cast, Downey Jr. is the lead, and on top of that, this was his swan song as Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man. As it turns out, this wasn’t simply a goof or some sort of sign of bad blood between Disney and Downey Jr. In a new interview, the actor revealed he personally declined to campaign for an Oscar. Downey Jr. also weighed-in on Martin Scorsese‘s recent comments on superhero films.

Unless Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker makes a last minute dash for the box office record, Avengers: Endgame will be both the highest grossing movie of 2019 and the highest grossing movie of all time. But that’s not good enough for The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios, because they’ll be making a big push for the comic book movie to get some awards love too. However, it would seem that there’s one key category that Disney and Marvel have left out, and we’re not sure why. Read More »

Last night, Kevin Feige was given the Stan Lee World Builder Award at the 2019 Saturn Awards, honoring the best in sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Feige wasn’t on-hand to accept the award in-person, but he did send along a heartfelt thank you, and he included a special surprise for everyone in attendance and tuning in online.
During his acceptance speech, Kevin Feige announced that there will be a box set released later this year that contains all 23 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that make up what is now called The Infinity Saga. That might not sound like a big deal since all of those movies are available on home video, but this box set will sweeten the collection with deleted scenes and other footage that has been locked up in Marvel’s vault. To tease the kind of footage he’s talking about, Feige introduced an alternate, never-before-seen alternate credits scene for Iron Man, which references Spider-Man, Hulk and X-Men. Watch it below.

It’s been four months since Avengers: Endgame gave Tony Stark and Steve Rogers send-offs that were equally tragic and triumphant, but we’re still reeling from the loss of the two biggest Avengers.

And he is confirming that it could not have happened any other way.
