Default Robert Downey Jr Signs Two-Picture Deal To Return As Iron Man In The Avengers Sequels

Robert Downey Jr To Return As Marvel's Iron Man

Quote:
“I am Iron Man.” Tony Stark’s famous closing line to the very first Iron Man film takes on new life today as Marvel is pleased to announce the signing of Robert Downey, Jr. to reprise the role of the “billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist.”
Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man in “Marvel’s The Avengers 2” and “Marvel’s The Avengers 3.” Downey is represented at CAA by Bryan Lourd, Jim Toth and Matt Leaf and by his attorneys Tom Hansen and Stewart Brookman of the firm Hansen Jacobson.
Downey, Jr.’s last two Marvel films, 2012’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” and this year’s “Iron Man 3,” rank as two of the top five grossing films of all time, collectively earning over $2.7 billion worldwide to date.
“Marvel’s The Avengers 2” is being written and directed by Joss Whedon. Featuring favorites from the first Avengers film and new Marvel characters never before seen on the big screen, “Marvel’s The Avengers 2” is slated to begin production in March 2014 and open in theaters May 1, 2015.
Thrilled by this mega announcement, Marvelites? Well, be sure you stay glued to Marvel.com because in the coming days and weeks and months, Marvel.com will be FIRST in the world to reveal additional casting updates, new characters coming to Marvel movies and so much more -- directly from the most secret meetings at Marvel! You wouldn't want to miss out on that now, would you?!

They don't need a retcon, just a more clear explanation.

In the comics he eventually got the shrapnel out of his chest so I have no issue with it as long as they explain why he couldn't have done it earlier.

Instead, Black tried to make IM3 feel like some kind of ending, which really ruined the film even more for me. If he knew Dr. Wu since '99, then why couldn't he have gotten that mess removed during IM2 when it was killing him? Plus, it's only speculating that Wu didn't have the right technology because nothing is clear when Wu's only in the film twice as well as there only being like a year-two year tops between IM2 and IM3.

Why bother? Nothing in the end of IM3 actually prevents. . . anything at all from happening afterwards. Unless, of course, you mistakenly assumed he was retiring.

Because he didn't sign on for an IM4. That simple...

I'm glad to see Iron Man in the hands of Whedon and no more solo films that could be directed by Shane Black

Best news I've heard all day. The Avengers without RDJ is like The Beatles without John Lennon.

There will undoubtedly be a 4th Iron Man film. It will just happen after RDJ runs through this new contract. Disney would be insane to drop their biggest solo franchise. They will just recast and continue on.

As for the news itself, i'm very happy that they got RDJ back to finish phase 2 at the least.

I was very happy to hear that RDJ will be back. From the way Whedon spoke about Tony Stark's appearance in TA2 in recent interviews I was certain that Downey's contract was being finalized.


Now all I want to hear is that RDJ and Shane Black are re-teaming for Iron Man 4. The third entry in the franchise was a perfect summing-up of Tony's life to that point, but there is a lot more for them to explore. "I am Iron Man," was the final line of Iron Man 3 for a reason. Tony was never going to retire and RDJ was always going to come back to him. Black should return and continue Tony's story.

I see a reason when the first IM set out a promising idea for the Ten Rings, which Shane Black screwed up....and a promising build up for Mandarin....which Shane Black screwed up.

If we get a film that forgets about IM3 and gives us a better take on Mandarin with Ghost helping him out...that would be all kinds of amazing.

IM3 was IMO the absolute worst of all the Marvel movies and the only one I left angry and disappointed. I thought the Mandarin would be my big problem but it paled into nothing compared to everything else I hated about Not-Iron Man 3. I'm glad you liked it but it broke my faith in Shane Black and made me more cautious of the MCU in general

Well, you won't be getting a film like that unless the whole MCU is rebooted or if you or any other IM3-hater were to become a successful director who could convince Feige and co. that a movie that made $1.2B worldwide was "screwed up" and that they should let you retcon the Iron Man franchise with a new movie featuring a non-twisty, straightforward Mandarin.

Neither of those things will happen anytime soon, so I suggest you be ready to deal with it.
