Will Robert Downey Jr. return for Avengers 2?

by Matthew Price Published: May 2, 2013

Will Robert Downey Jr. return for the next “Avengers” film?  Here’s what Entertainment Weekly has to say about the question.

Downey has fulfilled all his contractual obligations to play the hero that made him a blockbuster star, and there’s currently no Iron Man 4 on Marvel’s slate, which spans the next several years. Everyone involved — including Downey himself — expects he’ll at least return for writer-director Joss Whedon’s Avengers 2 in 2015, but Iron Man 3 doesn’t exactly leave the billionaire/playboy/philanthropist that we know and love in mint condition.

Downey’s contract is up after “Iron Man 3,” and Gwyneth Paltrow – who appears with Robert Downey Jr. on the cover – recently told Geek Nation that she doesn’t think there will be an Iron Man 4.
