Robert Downey Jr.: No Ironman 4 “in the pipe.”

So as coincidence would have it, after last night's movie musical clip of Heart & Souls (see my Facebook page for that) comes this bit of news. 

Robert Downey Jr. says there is no Iron Man 4 in the pipe, although he has finished filming Avengers: Age of Ultron  and is signed for the follow-up.  And after the enormous amount of money he signed for to do those two films, I doubt if he needs the cash.  If they want him to do another, they may have to mortgage the Studio.  The ball is in his park, not theirs, and that’s the way it should be.  I don’t think the series would have gotten to where it was without Robert Downey Jr.

From Variety:

Don’t hold your breath, Tony Stark fans.

In a new interview with Variety, Robert Downey Jr. shot down speculation about a fourth “Iron Man” movie. 

“There isn’t one in the pipe,” Downey said. “No, there’s no plan for a fourth ‘Iron Man.'”

The actor, in Toronto to promote his new film “
The Judge,” signed with Marvel and Disney for two “Avengers” sequels, which hit theaters summer 2015 and 2018, but has been reluctant to commit to any more superhero films.

When asked if he would “let” somebody else play Tony Stark, Downey laughed off the idea.

“I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I’m casting director for Marvel,” he said.

“Don’t give it to anybody else,” his “Judge” costar Robert Duvall advised.

Like the article states, don’t hold your breath.  Use the Variety link to read more and also link to info about Downey’s new movie, “The Judge.”
