Robert Downey Jr. Reprising Role As Iron Man For Disney+ Series. Though his time as Tony Stark seemed to end in Avengers: Endgame, it appears Robert Downey Jr. is not quite ready to call it quits with Marvel Studios. We already know that RDJ will be appearing as Tony in Black Widow premiering in Spring 2020, but it seems Downey has signed on to another Marvel Project.
Jeff Goldblum recently visited with Buzzfeed to discuss he new show on Disney+, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and shared that he, and other Marvel actors, have reprised their roles in various capacities for Marvel’s new animated series coming to Disney+, Marvel Studios What If…?.
“I played the part [Grandmaster (Thor: Ragnarok)] again a couple of days ago. I went to the Disney studios and I recorded the Grandmaster’s voice for an episode of a show that’s gonna be on Disney+ that’s called What If…?,” Goldblum said in a video from BuzzFeed. “It’s an animated version of all the characters we know and love from Marvel and this episode included the Grandmaster and Iron Man, so Robert Downey [Jr.] will do a voice for that, and Korg. Taika Waititi had already recorded his voice for that, so yeah, for a couple hours I enjoyed doing that.”
It was previously known that Marvel actors such as Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster) and Taika Waititi (Korg) would be reprising their roles, but news about Robert Downey Jr. returning to Marvel as Tony Stark is a welcome surprise!
Goldblum also shared that he is unaware of the Grandmaster making an appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, but that he is on board if they ask. “We’re talking about it, in fact, I hope so,” Goldblum said. “I love Taika Waititi, he’s a great director and a friend of mine.”
