The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow on a yearly basis but, while we continue to get plenty of new superheroes on the big screen, Marvel still love to bring us some of the already well established characters. It is arguable that Iron Man is the biggest Marvel movie character at the moment, with Robert Downey Jr proving very popular the fans.
Robert has already appeared in three stand-alone Iron Man movies, as well as The Avengers, while he will also reprise the role for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens on May 1, 2015. There have been plenty of rumours about the future of Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, as he has seemed to hint in the past that he could be ready to leave. So will we see Marvel replace him after The Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Well, while Robert has teased in the past that he could be done with playing Tony Stark aka Iron Man, it seems that he has had a change of heart, leading many to believe that an Iron Man 4 movie could be a possibility. Downey Jr admitted that he would be willing to continue in the role as long as he felt the script was good enough.
He explained, "I would really hate for someone else to think they could step into my shoes. I know things are looking like that they could go on for a long while. As usual in my book, it's all about quality control and delivering a product that you can have this kind of reaction to. If they keep doing that, maybe I'll keep showing up."
There will eventually come a time when Marvel will have to replace Robert Downey Jr but it looks like we could still have him for a few more years yet. Who would you like to see replace Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man?
