Robert Downey Jr. is one of the few actors in Hollywood that has successfully latched on to a fictional role for a long period. The actor paved the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe by playing the best version of Iron Man over the last nine years with a total of nine appearances.
While fans aren’t looking for a replacement anytime soon, Robert Downey Jr. seems to be thinking way ahead of his fans. The actor looks determined to reprise the role of a playboy billionaire a.k.a a Marvel superhero for Avengers: Infinity War and its next title. However, in a recent interview with News.com.au, Downey Jr. spoke about his limitation of reprising the role.
“Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven [movies] I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it’s embarrassing.”
Downey Jr’s version of Tony Stark has grown from once being a maniac who was schooled by Nick Fury to now acting as a mentor to Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man. The actor has managed to truly explore the character’s potential. However, it looks like we may or may not see a lot of him after Avengers 4.
In an earlier interview with Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that the “original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled Avengers in May of 2019.” He also dropped a hint that fans will get to see further events unfold in the next Spider-Man movie slated for release on July 5th, 2019.
