Man. Maybe Robert Downey Jr. ain’t done starring in solo Iron Man flicks just yet.
Well. I guess us Marvel Fanboys can call off the midnight incantations. The blood-letting, the sacrifices of small rodents and meandering children. Iron Man 4 is happening.
I have to believe at this point RDJ is just doing some adorable posturing when it comes to Iron Man 4. Like, sure he runs his mouth, and hints that he’s not sure if it’ll happen. Referencing his age and shit. But as others have rightfully pointed out, I think this can all be translated to “If the money and the script are right.”
You know, I thought RDJ was pretty convincing last year when he made it seem like he was getting out of the Iron Man game after Avengers…3? But at the same time, my cynical thought was “If they kiss his ass and throw truck-fuck-loads of money at him, he’ll return.” It seems that my cynicism will win out.
(Or is it pragmatism?)
The inevitable has happened. Marvel has signed Robert Downey Jr. for the second and third Avenging flicks. No brainer, right? Still though – no mention of Iron Man 4. My guess? I’m still pushing for his death-sacrifice/resurrection in the aforementioned movies. What do you peoples make of all this?
Well this is interesting. RDJ is in talks to reprise his role as Really Rich Smart Guy in not one but two of those Avengers flicks. But what about Iron Guy 4, you’re proclaiming?! Who knows. My own personal take? Stark dies in Avengers 2, and “comes back to life” or whatever in the third.
What say you?
Here, have a batch of Avengers, Iron Man 4, and Marvel movie rumors.
