After months of speculation and an earlier statement that nothing was happening yet, Robert Downey Jr. announced on the Ellen DeGeneres show that IRON MAN 4 is being discussed!
Of course, that doesn’t mean he’s willing to spilling all the details. Downey mentioned to Ellen that negotiations are ongoing, so his answer was a little more cryptic during a Reddit AMA later that day:
“Sooner than later the Marvel Roster will be made public and all questions will be answered.”
He also backpedaled a bit on the David Letterman show later that night, but says he will definitely be doing more work with Marvel:
It’s hard to tell if RDJ’s slight retraction comes more from hesitation or warnings for the powers that be at Marvel, but either way, we’re looking forward to see what will be happening for Iron Man beyond AVENGERS 3!
