Default Downey's last?

I recall RDJ only being signed to 4 pictures (IM, IM2, IM3, and Avengers). So do you think he'll stick around for more after IM3? And if not, who the hell could possibly replace Downey?!

That's a tough one I mean if their looking for an actor in their early 40's by the time film starts rolling than that actor would have to be in his 30's at this time.

I'd go with Colin Farrel since he's a former Hollywood badboy as RDJ was.

His eyebrows wouldn't fit in the helmet.

LeBlanc is only 2 years younger than RDJ. Either way I don't think he could pull it off.

I think Farrell is a good candidate.

Just because you see a pic of him with a goatee? Yeah, great reason.

LeBlanc seems like he would be so dumb he wouldn't even know how to operate the suit let alone build it. I've seen no evidence of him playing a remotely intelligent character in any of the roles he's starred in.

Lost In Space. It's not Oscar material, but I thought he did well in it.

I was going to write "and don't say Lost in Space" at the end of my original post, but I thought no-one in their right mind would honesty cite that as an example of his "intelligence".

Unless Disney/Marvel gives him a small island as payment and gets a time machine, yeah this is RDJ's last movie.

The next Tony is going to have it tough.

Farrel is a good choice btw, one of the actors I wanted before RDJ got cast.

I'm hoping he at least comes back for one more, even if it's him co starring in Avengers 2.

Downey's replacement should be as young as Chris Evans to fill in many movies and would look as smart as Downey so people won't miss RDJ. Iron Man doesn't need to be an American so I seriously think the next actor will be outsourced. Personally I find Farrell acting is too dark as Downey substitute.

I don't know if they will throw the Teen Tony curve to compensate a younger Tony Stark actor. Either that or bring Black Panther/Ant Man as the Avengers scientist-technologist.

This. Finish it with 3 and whatever Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. movies you have down the line, then when they decide to reboot Iron Man, do it like 2 decades later when it's a-ok to resurrect a movie.

IMO, 2 decades is far too long. There's no reason to need to wait so long. 7-10 years is plenty of shelf-time, IMO.

7-10 years reboot cycle? That is just insane! Hollywood is repetetive enough as it is. We don't need films being remade every 7-10 years, especially films of good quality. It has to be at least 15+. Imagine if they remade Inception in 7 years or Shawshank in 2001!

Those aren't serialized films(and frankly I couldn't care less about either of them, anyway). But serialized film properties(like superheroes) are different. They're meant to be ongoing in perpetuity. And I never said a reboot necessarily. It could just be a new take w/o crapping all over what came before.

I only think rebbots are warranted when they f---- up a property and it needs to be corrected, or the property has gone on so long(James Bond, Star Trek) that all that is left is a reboot.

I'd say people said the same about Sean Connery as James Bond. Downey's great, but he can be replaced.

Maybe he can.

But the thing is with Tony Stark, the audience is already aware of Downey Jr's interpretation and anyone remotely trying to match his charisma on screen would be viewed as copying Downey or being no where near as good as him.

I feel bad for the guy next in line, it would be like filling in the Joker's shoes after what Ledger did. Downey made himself a household name with Iron Man as did Ledger with the Joker. Marvel fears replacing him.

EDIT: yeah, Marvel may need a sacrificial lamb for Iron Man haha

Yep as much as I love RDJ's interpretation, he can be replaced. But like it's been said a sacraficial lamb will be required.

I agree. Awesome casting for a superhero franchise.

I say give Downey whatever he wants and let him do it forever.

You know, I mean...now that I'm thinking about it...

If you've seen the guy at comic-con, it's pretty obvious that he loves the fans and loves what he's doing. He also obviously likes keeping busy with his movies. Maybe he would be willing to continue as Tony Stark past IM3.

After all, after IM3, I could see them putting the Iron Man franchise to rest for a little while and just having Tony show up in other Marvel films. That would only require RDJ to show his face for a few minutes here and there. Otherwise, he'd just lend his voice to the visual effects of Iron Man flying around and kicking ass...

The thing about reboots in the MCU is that they're pretty damn unnecessary. Ever.

Sony and Fox like rebooting things because they only have access to so many characters, so once they feel things getting stale, they feel it's time to start fresh.

If things get stale for a character in the MCU, you can just focus on films featuring other characters and maybe just have the "stale" character make some cameos. And if you want to make another film with said character, a recast doesn't necessarily constitute a reboot (we've already seen as such with Rhodey and Bruce Banner).


I'd rather the MCU just continuously work forward without reboots. In fact, with the MCU, I don't think they are even possible. If you reboot one character, you have to reboot the entire MCU. Recasts will inevitably happen, but reboots I don't think ever will.

yeah i'm just tired of the word reboot. What will make or break the new spider-man for me is whether its the same story. I like originality and the word reboot is dangerously close to remake and that means a lack of originality. imo

LOL, what? It's an adaptation of a comic book character. It's not original in the first place.

A reboot is just another adaptation of the same character...

And the new Spider-Man is not the same story.
