Robert Downey Jr. Says Comic Book Movies Are Getting Old & No Iron Man 4



Robert Downey Jr. continues making the rounds for his latest movie The Judge, and in doing so has talked about the Marvel movies.

The actor previously said plans for Iron Man 4 were underway while appearing on Ellen, but then stated on Letterman nothing was happening.

Now while talking with the Telegraph, Robert Downey Jr. says more of the same.

"Not that I’m aware of,”  Downey responded when asked about Iron Man 4.

 “Not that I’m aware of," Downey replied again when asked if it was the end of Iron Man.

"Avengers was another opportunity, but they’re not talking about Iron Man 4," Robert Downey Jr. reiterated. "I was kind of bombed out to tell the truth, but maybe they’ve got bigger fish to fry and I trust their overall vision. The funny thing about these genre movies is you’d think they were national secrets."

Robert Downey Jr. continues with actually mentioning the entire comic book movie genre is getting old.

"Honestly, the whole thing is just showing the beginning signs of fraying around the edges. It’s a little bit old," he said. "Last summer there were five or seven different ones out. I feel that they are critiqued by a different metric to any other movie.”

Robert Downey Jr. can next be seen as Iron Man in "The Avengers 2" out May 1, 2015.
