There was little doubt, but now it is official - Robert Downey, Jr. is returning to play Tony Stark/Iron Man in the next two "The Avengers" movies.

Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star in those two films - no mention was made of a possible "Iron Man 4" in the press release.

No word as yet regarding Downey's financial compensation for the agreement. More as it develops.
