Iron Man Franchise Will Continue Without Robert Downey Jr!!

iron man 3 opening weekend record(1)

Robert Downey, Jr.'s obligations to Marvel are done after Avengers 2, but what does that mean for the Iron Man series?

Can there really be a sequel without RDJ??

Marvel President Kevin Feige says the show must go on, with or without its signature star. He says:

"I believe there will be a fourth Iron Man film and a fifth and a sixth and a 10th and a 20th.

I see no reason why Tony Stark can’t be as evergreen as James Bond. Or Batman for that matter. Or Spider-Man. I think Iron Man is a character just like that."

Aww! Can it work that way? Reboot after reboot? Well, maybe…

At first no one bought anyone other than Sean Connery as James Bond, but eventually everyone got used to the idea. Especially when Daniel Craig took off his shirt!

Hey, we just had an idea for the Iron Man reboot! LOLz!

    How come you are claiming this despite RDJ still being in negotiations and despite other reports (not even 12 hours old) talking about Iron Man 4 and Avengers 3?

    Nah…Iron Man has the same cool vibe and sarcastic personality that RDJ naturally has…that is why I love him in every movie he does. It won't be the same with someone else.

    Are you serious.. RDJ Captured the role. There can't be iron man without him. I REFUSE to watch iron man without RDJ. NO ONE CAN REPLACE HIM.

    RDJ is Iron Man. The reason it's such a successful franchise is because he brought the character to life!! No one else can play Iron Man and I for one hate movies that change actors for sequels (they already pushed it with Rhody's character)! I definitely wouldn't see a sequel without RDJ! I just wouldn't believe it!

    I'm not watching someone else play Iron Man. I don't care if they make 500 sequels; if it's not Robert, I have no reason to watch.

    I WILL NEVER WATCH IT IF ITS NOT RDJ!! The charm won't be there anymore! I honestly think RDJ may be the most suitable person cause he has tony Starks charm in real life. Ps he's reaching 50 but still hotttttttt

    It would be better if Marvel just didnt make anymore IRON MAN movies, cus it aint gonna be the same without TONY STARK himself aka ROBERT DOWNEY JR !!!

    You all say that, but I guarantee most people would still go and see the film, just like they went and saw the spiderman film - which was terrible, but still made a bunch of money. They feed it to you, and you all eat it up.

    Hmmm…I'm not sure how I feel about this. I do think a lot of what's so great about Iron Man is RDJ and I highly doubt they could find an actor to match…but if they did, I may be open to them recasting it. It's just a VERY big if. I think they'd be better off to just put the character aside (at least for a bit) and focus on other Marvel characters they haven't yet. I mean, there's endless supply…



  17. 17

    i barely even watched them now so you can be sure i won't be watching them without RDJ.



  18. 18

    And it will crash and burn.



  19. 19

    If RDJ is not in it, then I will not see it! He is the only one perfect for the role and the reason many of us watched Iron Man's movies! Come on Marvel!

    No. I will not watch someone else play iron man. No no no no.

    I will never watch Iron Man again without Robert Downey Jr. He makes the movie the only reason I watch it.

    Well goodbye Iron Man #4 #5 #10 #20 because I'm not watching another Iron Man movie that does not feature Mr. Robert Downey Jr, he MADE the character come to life and I just can't simply see anyone else with the iron man suit!!!

    RDJ hasn't yet decided whether or not he will continue with the Iron Man franchise. His contract runs out after the Phase 2 movies. I think he most likely will continue to be in Iron Man movies though.

    seriously?!RDJ IS IRON MAN!!!THEY CANNOT REPLACE THE SOUL OF THE FILM! IF RDJ IS NOT PLAYING THE ROLE OF IRON MAN THEN WE ARE NOT WATCHING IM MOVIES……IRON MAN WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT RDJ.

    I think it would be a horrible mistake to make iron man 4 without Robert Downey Jr. It would have to be a reboot and its way too soon for that.

    Iron Man without RDJ would be like Pirates without JD. The first one might be successful because people are curious to see how they can possibly pull that off, the next one will die because everyone knows it sucks.
