This is the best news I’ve ever heard in my life.
Marvel announced the news on their website today. Robert Downey, Jr.’s contract states the t he’s signed on for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3 however, there has been no mention of an Iron Man 4. Hopefully this is in the works as well.
Joss Whedon recently said he had no intentions of making a sequel without RDJ. He was quoted as saying:
“He is Iron Man the way Sean Connery is James Bond. He is Iron Man.”
I think this really got Disney on the ball because Joss Whedon’s direction of The Avengers was so phenomenal and the movie made so much money. There’s no way a sequel would have been as popular without Whedon and RDJ so this is great news!
Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man!
