Robert Downey Jr. signs for Avengers 2 and Avengers 3, but no sign of Iron Man 4

by on Jun.20, 2013, under Movies

Marvel announced today that Robert Downey Jr. has reached an agreement to reprise his Tony Stark/Iron Man role in two more films – but not alone.

The two-movie deal only covers the upcoming Avengers 2 (to start production next March for a May 2015 release) and Avengers 3, but leaves Iron Man 4 further in doubt, considering this will take Downey to around 2018, when he’ll be 53, and he’s already said he only wanted to do it until he’s 50.

Then again, they seemed to leave the end of Iron Man 3 at an appropriate closing point, and the primary comic character storylines only seem to be making it to three films as it is before the reboot tag starts getting thrown around…

    Almost glad there might not be Iron Man 4. I loved the first 2, but 3 was a total disappointment for me. Iron Man running away scared…really? Lost it for me right there.
