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).

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
