Default Re: Downey's last?

Interview with Feige on HuffPo:

In the recent GQ profile on Robert, it sounded like he was nearing the end of his Tony Stark career. To me, this character isn't like James Bond, where audiences would accept a new actor in the role; Stark feels more like a modern-day Indiana Jones. You can't separate the role from the actor. Have you given thought to where the character goes if Robert steps away?

Well, look, I don't think Robert will be playing this character for another 30 years, and I certainly hope the character stays in movies for the next 30 years -- just like James Bond. I would say before George Lazenby and Roger Moore, Sean Connery was James Bond. It will take a while to fill any shoes, whether it's filmmaker shoes or writer shoes or certainly actor shoes. I think Tony Stark is an interesting enough and rich enough character that he can persevere. That being said, I hope that doesn't happen any time soon. It certainly is our plan to continue to have Robert Downey in the persona of Tony Stark for many, many years to come.
