Robert Downey Jr. In Iron Man 4?: Sounds Like It's Up To Disney



Will Robert Downey Jr. return for Iron Man 4?

That question is currently up in the air, but Robert Downey Jr. seemed to insinuate in a recent interview that it's up to Disney and Marvel.

“It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey told EW.com. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement."

Regarding things going great, Robert Downey Jr. answered the questions on the set of The Avengers 2, where he indicated everything is presently a-okay.

“Right now, this has just been swell, hasn’t it?” he said with a big smile. “This has been a really good one and it feels good and we’re having a good time.”

Downey Jr. is presently the highest paid actor in Hollywood, earning $75 million this past year, thanks in part to last year's highest grossing movie, Iron Man 3

It's previously been said that when a new Tony Stark is cast, they could go the route of a James Bond, meaning sticking with the continuity, but using a new actor (and one at a much cheaper cost).

It's possible with Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of new movies that we could find out if RDJ will return for Iron Man 4 this weekend at Comic-Con.
