We’ve seen Robert Downey Jr. in those Avengers: Age of Ultron set photos, so we know his Iron Man will be back. And we know that he has signed on for The Avengers 3, but is there any hope for an Iron Man 4?
"There isn’t one in the pipe,” Downey said to Variety in Toronto. Downey’s there promoting his film with Robert Duvall, The Judge, and said the words that fans of Iron Man probably did not want to wake up to today.
“No, there’s no plan for a fourth Iron Man."
We certainly hope that the film you see when you watch Iron Man 3 online is not the last solo movie we’ll see the man who was born to be Tony Stark star in. But, it appears that is the case.
Given the box office success of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel doesn’t need Downey like they used to… and maybe, just maybe, we have seen the last Iron Man solo movie.
Check out Downey as Iron Man (while we can!) in Avengers: Age of Ultron in our slideshow below.
