Robert Downey Jr. was at ShoWest
last week promoting the fall release of the Todd Phillips comedy Due Date
which teams him with comedian Zach Galifianakis.
ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype was there and we spoke to Downey, but didn't have any time to ask him anything Iron Man-related in the mayhem of our interview
, but one of the other outlets Downey spoke to was The Associated Press
Everyone has been well aware (or at least we've all assumed) that Downey's Iron Man would play a pivotal part in Marvel Studios' planned The Avengers
, but whether he'd do an Iron Man 3
before or after has only been hinted at but never confirmed.
Although The Associated Press
didn't include a direct quote from Downey in their piece on Due Date
, they do mention in the article that he is prepared to do a third movie, so he must have said something to that extent to them:
Galifianakis said he expects to begin work this fall on the sequel to "The Hangover," while Downey said he aims to suit up for a third "Iron Man" flick.
That doesn't tell us a lot, because we still don't know if this is something he'll do anytime soon or sometime down in the road. Either way, Iron Man 2
's success is a foregone conclusion at this point, and it would make sense for Marvel to continue his story, especially since we have yet to see The Mandarin.
In a little over a month, Downey will be doing press for Iron Man 2
, which is out May 7, and we're sure that more questions about a threequel will be on many minds by then.
