Man. Maybe Robert Downey Jr. ain’t done starring in solo Iron Man flicks just yet.
Consummate fuccboi and proponent for extensive government regulations Tony Stark will be in Spider-Man: Homecoming. I think we have all sort of expected this, but now it is confirmed.
Lost in all the fapping over and critiquing of last week’s Civil War trailer was this: there wasn’t any Spider-Kid in the trailer. Which is sort of dope, ’cause it means they’re saving him. For when? Who knows! But he will be in the movie, as part of the glorious Shared Universe. And it gets better! Not only is Spidey appearing in a Cap movie, but Cap and Iron Man will also be appearing in his.
Woah. This, this is a bit of an interesting development. Like, what Universe are we in? And can I get back to Earth-Prime? Or maybe where shit like this exists is somewhere where I want to be.
Downey Jr. says big movie announcement coming in eight days, drops Iron Man character poster for ‘AoU’
Robert Downey Jr hung a double-whammy on the masses today. First the actor dropped an Iron Man character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Neat enough, right? But then the good lad followed up that magnanimity up by announcing…a Marvel announcement. Apparently Marvel Studios is dropping some announcement in eight days, and like. If this isn’t web-shooter related, I’ll be shocked.
Last night the RDJ+CP3=MCU’sCW news broke. And while I dug it, I agreed with most who were all “Wait, Civil War, already?” But what I was hoping (OH HOPES OF HOPE) was that Cap 3 was merely the jumping-off point for Cinematic Civil War. The kick-off, the impetus, the boiling point. And if the rumors of the Russo Brothers maybe/sorta directing the next two Avengers movies are true, it would help perpetuate my hope. Sanctify it. In blood and comic book flesh and the mewling whimper of a decaying star’s doomed infancy.
Robert Downey Jr. is going to be in Captain America 3. And if the tea leaves are to be believed the movie is going kick-off the MCU version of Marvel’s Civil War. Well! Looks like I was TOTALLY FUCKING RIGHT about Marvel’s Civil War push next year being about tying into an MCU version of the event. Truthfully, nothing’s been proven definitively. But my dick is small and my mind is shot and I need victories in my life.
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.”
