Plus Marvel is very cost efficient RDJ's getting like 50 million for these movies now. Marvel dosen't want to pay that much. So it's a wait and see thing now.
In the Empire interview, Kevin Feige said that RDJ will be appearing in The Avengers 2
, with Downey right there in the room. So we know he'll be in that movie, at least. MarvelFreshman posted the scan of the article in the News thread. You should read it to get the details (as much as they let on).
