Contrary to speculation that he no longer has time for “Iron Man 4,” Robert Downey Jr. hinted in his latest interview that he is still keen to portray the role.
In an interview with the Daily Star, as shared by Daily Mail UK, the 51-year-old actor, who has been giving life to the role for quite a while now, revealed that he is giving himself two more years as the red-and-gold clad Marvel superhero.
“I don’t know how long I’ll do it for,” he said about the character that helped him earn $200 million since he accepted the offer in 2008. “I’ll keep playing Iron Man for a couple more years, I guess.”
Prior to this report, Robert Downey Jr. already gave hope to his eager fans about his re-appearance as Iron Man for the film’s fourth installment when he was interviewed by ABC’s “Nightline,” IGN UK reported.
“I feel like I could do one more,” he told the TV show when its crew visited him on the set of an airplane fight sequence. Such was captured via a video about “Captain America: Civil War.”
It can be recalled that last month, rumors about the former “Ally McBeal” actor not joining the cast of “Iron Man 4” erupted when he told USA Today that he already considered his film with Chris Evans as his fourth “Iron Man” project already.
“In a way it’s ‘Cap 3’ but for me it’s like my little ‘Iron Man 4’ and then it’s back to the thing we all recognize,” he narrated. “Everything pulls over to the side of the road when the thunder of an Avengers thing comes through because that’s how it is until it changes. If it changes.”
Robert Downey Jr. likewise pointed out at the time that he did not think that a fourth solo “Iron Man” film “is in the cards.”
