Robert Downey Jr. and his future in the role of Tony Stark and Iron Man seems uncertain at this point.
The now 50-year-old actor previously hinted that he could leave behind the armor sometime in the near future, but for now seems content to stay in that role – playing the part in this year’s “Captain America: Civil War” and the upcoming two-part “Avengers: Infinity War” saga.
Still, many are wondering if we’ll get one more “Iron Man” solo outing sometime down the line. Speaking with USA Today, Downey suggests that ‘Civil War’ is effectively his “Iron Man 4” at least in his head, and the separate franchises take a back seat once the ‘Avengers’ bell starts ringing:
“I don’t think that’s in the cards. In a way it’s Cap 3 but for me it’s like my little Iron Man 4. And then it’s back to the thing we all recognize. Everything pulls over to the side of the road when the thunder of an Avengers thing comes through because that’s how it is until it changes. If it changes.”
Downey is contracted for ‘Infinity War’ but then his deal is up. Will that be our last outing with Tony Stark?
