Robert Downey Jr. Talks Iron Man 4


Right now, Robert Downey Jr. is the man with one of the most powerful franchises in his hand. If it were up to Marvel, they would have a new Iron Man film out every year, since the last film was a billion dollar hit.

But for now, all parties involved are holding steadfast on Downey Jr.’s contract, which stipulates two more Avengers films and no further solo Iron Man adventures.

Could Downey possibly change his mind about not coming back to the solo films?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Downey reveals that he’s absolutely up for more, but that it depends on “negotiations.” Which is what people like Downey Jr. call money.

Downey Jr. said: “It’s down to Kevin and Ike and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree. When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement… It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?”


Downey finished 2013 as the year’s highest paid actor due to the massive $75 million he recouped through back-end deals in “Iron Man 3.” He’ll receive a similar amount for next year’s “Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” provided the film performs up to expectations and makes a comical amount of money.

And outside of that, his career is going swimmingly: later this year he’s got “The Judge” and he can always return to the Sherlock Holmes films. Beyond that, it seems certain we can find an A-List director willing to work with him. That Robert Downey Jr. is sure to make something of himself soon.
