Gibson wants to direct Iron Man 4
Mel Gibson has revealed he wants to direct Iron Man 4.
The actor - who has directed movies including The Passion Of The Christ, Apocalypto and Oscar-winner Braveheart - is good friends with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr, who once said he would like to see Mel take the reins on one of the superhero films.
Asked about it by Extra TV, Mel said: "I'm pretty good at directing. I think I got some statues for it. I think I can do it."
He went on: "I think I'm a better director than actor. I hope somebody gives me an argument on that."
However, Mel might not get his wish as it doesn't look as if a fourth Iron Man movie is in the pipeline.
Star Robert recently appeared on The Late Show and told host David Letterman: "There are no plans for an Iron Man 4."
When the host quizzed him again about whether he would make another film in the franchise, Robert said: "Just between us, no. But I'm going to do other stuff with Marvel. I'm still going to be involved with Marvel, and there's going to be plenty of fun stuff to happen."
