Gwyneth Paltrow says that Iron Man is "done" and there will not be a fourth film

Apr. 25, 2013by:

With just a week to go until IRON MAN 3 hits theaters across North America, the media is beginning to explode with stories about everything and everyone tied to the film. So, pretty much everything that anyone says is going to be picked at with a fine tooth comb. So, it should be no surprise that when Gwyneth Paltrow signaled the end of the IRON MAN franchise, the Internet exploded.

In an interview with GeekNation, the actress was asked about the potential for Pepper Potts to get her own spin-off film or potentially don the RESCUE armor in IRON MAN 4. Her response was this:

I dont think theres going to be [an Iron Man 4]. I think were done with Iron Man.

Before you start freaking out and start a Kickstarter for IRON MAN 4, remember that Gwyneth Paltrow is not making a definitive statement here. Director Shane Black recently responded to Robert Downey Jr. saying he wanted to step away from the character after IRON MAN 3 and THE AVENGERS 2 to do other projects by saying he thinks Downey will return for another film. But, could he have just been referring to THE AVENGERS 2?

We need to face the fact there may not be another sequel after IRON MAN 3 and I am okay with that. We are going to be getting two Marvel movies a year for the next several years and there is no reason for any of them to be number 4 or 5 for any single superhero. If Iron Man only pops up in supporting roles for other heroes or even in an AVENGERS film every three or four years, I am fine with that. There is no way to maintain this many sequels without eventually losing quality.

Despite hearing rave reviews for IRON MAN 3, I hope Disney plays it safe and only makes an IRON MAN 4 if everything works. For now, let us enjoy the potentially last IRON MAN feature with these actors when it opens May 3rd.

Actors and Actresses should stop talking about stuff over their head. She's not an exec so she doesn't know. The character is bigger than her and RDJ and can and will continue past them.

Well after the end of iron man when he kinda gives up being iron man, i think there will be a few films without him. Maybe he will appear as tony but i don't think we will see iron man return until phase 3. Unless its flashbacks or films set before im3.

While they should make room for other Avenger characters...

I doubt this is the last Solo IM movie. Marvel wouldn't stop making one of their top earning franchises. There will always be a stand alone movie before an avengers team up. Sure, the days of two iron man movies before an avengers movie are gone but thats fine. Bring on Ant Man in its place.

I think they may as well keep going with Iron Man until they start to suck. So far all the Iron man films have had good story arcs, good characters and have made money. Why stop?
RDJ may want to do other things, but Stark is his legacy.

Dude, the Transformers movies have sucked, but they're still being made. So even if the Iron Man movies start to suck, they won't stop being made if they make money.

Iron Man 3 ends really nicely and provides a good conclusion to Tony's arc, but I suspect Marvel will want to keep RDJ in the role for as long as possible. And it's pretty much guaranteed that he'll turn up in Avengers 2 at the very least.

More RDJ & Ruffalo!

I would like to see an Iron Man 4 focusing on the relationship between Tony Stark & Bruce Banner. There was an Iron Man comic I remember from when I was a kid where BB gets TS to help make a special pacemaker to regulate BB's heartbeat so he doesn't get out of control & turn into the Hulk. Of course it all goes wrong... :)

I would be surprised if this is the last Iron Man film with Downey Jr. With the great reception that Iron Man 3 is getting, I wouldn't be surprised if Black, Downey Jr, and co. get the urge to come back and do one more film.

Like I said before if Downey Jr wants to take a break from Iron Man than just have him make cameos in other solo Avenger films and have him as a main character in the Avenger sequels. If they do another Iron Man, just make it the last film of phase three and have it

Marvel should take advantage of it's catalog

And keep relying on additional characters from it's universe. Iron Man is one of my favorites (comics and film adaptations), but maybe you can get another character and build a trilogy for him. You cycle that, maybe repeat, and pretty soon it's been 8-10 years, and everybody is ready to see an Iron Man reboot. I think Marvel/Disney understands the formula for a better Marvel movie now. This is the advantage of consolidating rights - so you aren't at the whim of competing studios, risking

Robert Downey Jr was a great bit of casting for these films, Marvel really lucked out in that respect. Not irreplaceable, but a hell of a good start and played a major part in these new Marvel movies being taken relatively seriously. RDJ can be recast and the Iron Man films can continue without the need for a reboot, but it'll be tough to find someone better suited to the role.

I think MARVEL has proven already with Terrance Howard, Edward Norton and Josh Dallas that they intend to just re-cast a role, and keep moving the story forward ala James Bond. That said, I don't think RDJ is done with the role quite yet though.

This is not James Bond

The difference between James Bond and Iron Man is that James bond is the only character in his universe. Ironman is part of a world with dozens of other characters with their own movies. If you reboot Iron Man then you neglect the entire Avengers universe it worked to set up. James Bond works well because his lives in his own world and goes on none sequential missions. What happens in one movie usually doesnt effect what happens in any other Bond movie. Iron Man films are all direct sequels and

As much as i love the Iron Man movies (yes, i did like 2) i think a trilogy is good for now. Now Marvel/Disney can focus on other heroes and continue to build their world. Maybe far enough down the line with can have a new Iron Man take the mantel in a "Batman Beyond" kind of way. But as for immediate future, no more solo films. He will still appear as a side character and cameo in as many other films as RDJ wants (Avengers 2, Ant-Man), just no longer carrying the entire film himself.

Fair enough, but i've been hearing people talk about a reboot in the way Spiderman and Batman have been made. And that is something that they wont do.

Also, its unlikely they will recast RDJ for an Iron Man movie. They need him. Otherwise they wouldnt have paid $50million to get him into the Avengers.

But very few of the Bond films are sequels to each other. Thats the real difference here. It's easy to recast Bond for every movie if you want. But you can't really do that as easily when

@Nite Owl....Josh Dallas played a very minimal character in the Thor. Well I assume he did, because I don't even remember who Fandral was. I had to look Josh Dallas up to see that he played him. So who was Fandral?

I like the idea Kevin Feige teased about Iron Man being a sort of James Bond figure. That way the role could continue to be reprised and cameos can be made etc...I think Downey's part is coming to a close and so is Paltrows. But that doesn't mean there won't be other people fitting into those roles in the near future.
