Shane Black feels very confident that Robert Downey Jr. will do Iron Man 4
In his recent interview with GQ, Robert Downey Jr. may have hinted at taking a break from IRON MAN. This is what he told the magazine:
"It got me thinking about how big the message from your cosmic sponsor needs to be before you pick it up," he tells GQ in a new cover profile. "How many genre movies can I do? How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun? I come from a family of very innovative writers and directors and actors and artists, and the circle of friends they were in were the people I heard having pun-offs playing poker at two in the morning, and it was just the most comforting aspect of my childhood. So there's this kind of legacy of souls from what I consider to be a very particular time in entertainment, and I'm sensing a return to that."
But RDJ is just so damn GOOD at being Tony Stark, I mean, he IS Tony Stark! I agree with some of the commenters of the original article that if he doesn't decide to go back to the solo films that we will certainly see him do cameos as the character, but director Shane Black seems to feel very confident that he will make another film:
I think that it will be hard for him to pass up on playing the character again, but whether he comes back to lead a solo movie again is unknown. I feel confident is saying that this isn't the last we've seen of Downey as Stark. We still have two more AVENGERS films!
