Jon Favreau Thinks We Should See More Of Robert Downey Jr. As IRON MAN
Remember last year when there was all that hubbub about whether or not Robert Downey Jr. would continue on as Tony Stark after Iron Man 3? Those were fun times. That all got resolved somewhat when RDJ signed on to appear as Mr. Stark in Avengers 2 and 3 with the possibility of more appearances in the future depending on negotiations and how many trucks full of money Disney is willing to back up to his door. Those conversations have started to pop up again thanks to Downey‘s friend and director Jon Favreau weighing in on whether he thinks we should see more Stark and maybe even an Iron Man 4.
Speaking with Flicks and the City during the premiere for his new film Chef, Favreau was asked whether he thought his buddy should keep on keeping on in the role that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After mentioning that he was about to head down to the Avengers: Age of Ultron set to see what everyone was up to, Favreau said:
I think people would love to see Robert Downey continue the Iron Man character, but he’s done it quite a bit now. I’ve had a few movies off, so it’s a lot easier for me to say that it should be done. I hope he continues doing it and, as long as he fits in that suit, there’s no reason he shouldn’t.
While Favreau has a good relationship with Marvel (he did direct two films and star as Happy Hogan in three of them), he probably hasn’t heard anything solid about the future of Tony Stark. Hopefully we do end up seeing more of Downey in the role though. What do you think about the director’s comments? Would you like to see him come back and helm Iron Man 4 if it ends up happening?
