Downey Jr could return as Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr is open to playing Iron Man again

Robert Downey Jr has revealed he is open to returning to his superhero alter-ego, as Marvel producer Kevin Feige talked about more Iron Man movies.

The 48-year-old, who is in talks to reprise his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man in The Avengers 2, admitted he wants a bit of a break before considering the possibility of a comeback for Iron Man 4.

"I'd go start another one tomorrow, but it's not tomorrow. And there are a lot of other considerations. But I also don't like the idea of leaving people hanging or leaving people in the lurch," he told Entertainment Weekly.

Robert also revealed his interest in starting another series of films, away from his Iron Man role.

"My intent is to launch another franchise, independent of any that I can even imagine right now. My intent is to dominate the playing field for as long as I can, with my own challenges, with myself," he added.

Meanwhile, with the third instalment riding high at the worldwide box office, Kevin admitted there could be many more Iron Man films in the future.

"I believe there will be a fourth Iron Man film and a fifth and a sixth and a 10th and a 20th," he said.

"I see no reason why Tony Stark can't be as evergreen as James Bond. Or Batman for that matter. Or Spider-Man. I think Iron Man is a character just like that."

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
