    you also have to realize that plenty of people portrayed Superman before Reeves while Stark has never been portrayed.

    There's no doubt in my mind that RDJ will appear in Avengers 2. The finality of Iron Man 3 has me doubt anything beyond that though.

    I hhhhhate the idea of recasting. Honestly I'd rather see Stark killed off (Joss loves doing that), or at least gracefully retired. There's enough characters in Marvel's roster to keep them going for decades with or without Stark. The film universe can't exist like the comics do, actors age and the characters should too. There's also only so many films that can be made at a time. If Marvel continue to layer in fresh characters among established ones there's so many opportunities.

    She says she thinks. Far from confirmation.

    Of course, but she has said a few different things very recently. Perhaps it is about negotiations at this point.

    My point was-- nothing has been decided, if only based on Gwyneth having given three different answers to essentially the same question (there's probably more; I didn't watch all of her interviews from this press tour).

    I've seen people freaking out over that "no more Iron Man 4" quote from her, yet no one has really brought up the fact that she had given other answers to that question that are far from being concrete.

    I couldn't remember where the quotes were from, but I did remember that she said there were negotiations ongoing. Thanks shuffleboard.

    It would totally blow my mind away if IM3 was the last.

    Yeah, I think most of us would have pegged Avengers 2 at the least as his last.

    Iron Man 3 is the last movie on his deal. He doesn't have a new contract or deal set up yet after Iron Man 3.

    A 4th Iron Man film is so far off, I doubt they've made any kind of decision about it. Maybe they won't for another couple of years. I wouldn't worry about anything Gwyneth has to say about it. Hell, if they recast Tony Stark, they'll probably recast Pepper as well.

    Sure, but recasting RDJ just seems like such a bother that I think they might just wait until after Avengers 2 to recast and I wonder if RDJ could easily pass up another Avengers movie.

    I wouldn't be surprised if "Iron Man" comes back for Avengers 2 or Iron Man 4. Nothing is impossible when it comes to storytelling.

    At this point, I think it could be safe to assume he'll be back for Avengers 2.
    If Iron Man 3 makes as much money as Avengers (1 billion+), an Iron Man 4 looks promising for late Phase III.

    I don't think Iron Man 3 will make as much money as The Avengers. I think the Avengers had a draw beyond any of the solo films.

    Well, hopefully it at least means they aren't planning to have Stark die off in A2 or IM4, and be replaced with Rhodey, like I think some folks were speculating.

    you guys see the RDJ interview on the daily show? He asked Robert if you will continue, andhe said with a laugh, I don't know. and John mentioned the contract, and robert said, I had a long contract, and we are renegotiating...then he winked twice...so..I think it's safe to say he'll be back

    I don't see him retiring any time soon. I see him as Hugh Jackman is to Wolverine. He seems to love the character way too much and the fans to let it go. On every red carpet, he literally looks like a kid in a candy store lol. He loves doing this. And it's not like he needs to do a lot of action - Iron Man's a suit as Whedon pointed out in an interview so he could easily just hand all or most of the action over to a stunt guy.
