Marvel Studios announced in June of 2013 that Robert Downey Jr. had signed a two-picture deal to reprise the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3. Not part of the deal was an Iron Man 4, and Downey told Variety this weekend in Toronto that is still the case.
“There isn’t one in the pipe,” Downey said. “No, there’s no plan for a fourth ‘Iron Man.'” Of course, Iron Man 3 brought in a massive $1.215 billion worldwide, so that could change in the future. For now, though, we have to assume that Iron Man 4 is not part of all the movies that Marvel has lined up through 2019.
The next time we’ll see Downey Jr. as Iron Man will be in Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015.
