“Iron Man 4 not likely to happen,” says Robert Downey Jnr

While everyone loves Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark/Iron Man – and we’re pretty sure he loves playing the role – it looks like you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for another solo outing.

Speaking to USA Today for a Captain America: Civil War set visit, the actor said it’s unlikely it’ll happen: “I don’t think that’s in the cards,” he said.

The actor reiterated that, while Civil War IS a Cap movie, it’s also a big thing for Iron Man and feels like part of that character’s catalogue of movies: “In a way it’s Cap 3 but for me it’s like my little Iron Man 4,” Downey said.

“And then it’s back to the thing we all recognize. 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.”

While we are disappointed that Iron Man 4 isn’t looking likely – at least not anytime soon – we don’t expect Downey Jnr to be hanging up the Iron Mask anytime soon. He is, after all, part of a bigger team…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
