Iron Man 4: There are huge hopes for the Ironman sequel release. It’s the fourth installment of the Iron Man movie series. But, till now, it hasn’t been clear if we are definitely going to see Robert Downey Jr suiting up for the Marvel superhero. The titular character role is under speculations.
Downey hasn’t given any positive responses regarding the IronMan fourth sequel. So, everything is in dark for now. Maybe he, himself, doesn’t know if he would be able to play the character once again as he is too busy with other films like Sherlock Holmes 3. It seems that he is not sure because of time constraints.
Iron Man 4 Release Date
However, fans are desperately looking forward to Marvel Studios to announce an Iron Man4. The studio hasn’t announced yet if they are going to continue with the franchise or not. Or some future character will take over the mantle. Marvel may decide to cast someone else.
In July 2017, Downey said that he doesn’t want to wear out the IronMan character by portraying himself too many times. It has been more than 10 years since the release of the first film in the franchise.
Also in 2016, Downey turned down the proposal for a solo Iron Man movie. He added that it’s not in the cards. Also, according to him, he has done his little Iron Man4 in Captain America: Civil War. It was in 2014 when Downey confirmed the fourth sequel to IronMan on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. However, in the recent times, he seemed unsure so he moves away from the topic.
