Back in July, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that he believes Iron Man 4 may happen some day. However, while doing press at the Toronto Film Festival for his new drama The Judge, the actor revealed that there aren't any current plans for the sequel.
"There isn't one in the pipe. No, there's no plan for a fourth Iron Man."
We reported in May that the actor signed a new deal with Marvel Studios that covers the sequels Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, but not Iron Man 4, meaning that if he does come back for the sequel, another new contract will be required.
It's also possible that Marvel Studios may bring in a new actor to play Tony Stark, but those plans have not been confirmed. When asked if there is another actor he would like to see as Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. had this to say.
"I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I'm casting director for Marvel."
"Don't give it to anybody else."
"That's the beauty of the FRMsFKBdwFOfQQMarvel (Cinematic) Universe. It's this giant web of plot, where everything is connected to everything else whether it's Thor, Iron Man or Avengers, everything is kind of involved. So that's the beautiful thing and especially for the fanboys who understand these plotlines. Every time a new film is announced, there is this surge of excitement to where they are gonna go. I think with Cap 3, we're going to continue this excitement."
"What do I think about this, what can I say about this? You wanna give something! Marvel doesn't disappoint. Whatever you're hoping for, you're probably going to get."
When asked about the notion that Steve Rogers may be passing on the Captain America duties to another character, such as The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) or The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Chris Evans revealed that he isn't quite done playing Cap quite yet.
"Don't take my job from me prematurely dude. I'm sure it'll happen at some point, all good things have to come to an end. But I'm really happy playing the character."
