Robert Downey Jr. Thinks Tony Stark Could Return to Marvel. Robert Downey Jr. and wife, Susan Downey, sat down with Extra to discuss their new film, Dolittle. The couple talked about doing a film together for the first time in honor of their children. Both shared sentiments about being able to share this experience with their kids since most films the Downey’s have been a part of are not exactly family friendly.
During the interview Robert’s time as Tony Stark/Iron Man came up and the Marvel Alumni hinted at the possibility that he is not quite done with the iconic role that relaunched his career.
“Yeah, anything could happen. I’m really enjoying…” Downey said before his wife Susan Downey interjected. He continued, “As far as I’m concerned, I hung up my guns and I’m good to let it go. I also think Marvel is on this journey now and they’re trying a bunch of other stuff, and I’m excited for them to see how all that goes. It’s hard to project.”
His wife Susan had interrupted his comment to say that the line would quickly become the next days headline. To be fair, she was completely right!
Robert has had an impressive career with Marvel Studios as Tony Stark/Iron Man. He has starred in 10 Marvel Films from Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame and rumor has it, has even lent his vocal talents to portray Tony Stark in Marvel’s new Disney+ Series, What If…?. RDJ’s comment comes as a bit of surprise since it was previously reported it was difficult to get him signed on to continue the role after Iron Man 3 and join the cast of Captain America: Civil War.
Needless to say, we would be thrilled to have more Robert Downey Jr. appearances in the MCU, likely as an A.I. version of Tony Stark or possibly while exploring the aspects of the Multiverse in the MCU.
