Robert Downey Jr on ‘Iron Man 4’: ‘I could do one more’

Star backtracks after previously ruling out another movie

Robert Downey Jr has hinted that he could be open to another Iron Man movie.

The star has previously ruled out a fourth film, instead viewing the latest Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War as a “little Iron Man 4“.

He added: “I don’t think it’s on the cards. In a way it’s Cap 3 but for me it’s like my little Iron Man 4 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.”

But in a behind the scenes video on Nightline, which you can view below, he confirmed that: “I feel like I could do one more.”

Downey Jnr recently promised Iron Man won’t become a total villain in the aftermath of the new role, or at least that if he does, it’ll be in a finale of sorts.

“If we’re going to go there, then we’ve got to save it for my swan song,” he added. “I would still like to keep a general audience and mildly be in their favor somehow.”

Marvel’s plot synopsis for the film teases: “Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity.”

The latest from the Marvel Universe hits UK cinemas on April 29, and will be the longest Marvel Movie to date at over two hours.

New footage of the movie was recently unveiled, with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Sebastian Stan’s The Winter Soldier featuring heavily.
