Mark Wahlberg Wants Robert Downey Jr.'s Job — As Iron Man!

The man in the iron suit might be about to change!

Robert Downey Jr. already announced that his days as Iron Man are done after the next Avengers flick.

And Hollywood's leading men are already lining up to take over the superhero part! And right in front is Mark Wahlberg!

Mark said this week that he'd be down for taking over for RDJ if they were to relaunch the franchise! He admitted:

“I would like to take over the Iron Man franchise for Robert Downey [but] it’s one of those things where I kind of like playing real people, [so] I’ve never been asked.”

We prefer when Marky wears next to nothing but if he REALLY wants to put on the power armored suit, we guess we'll let him!

Aside from how cool it is to play a superhero on the big screen, there's also the CASH that comes from landing a role like this.

Rob reportedly earned $50 million for Iron Man 3!

Sweet Pepper Potts, that's a lot of coin!!!

Good luck getting the gig, Mark! For that big a payday, we're certain you'll have A LOT of competition!

    Mark Wahlberg would be an absolutely TERRIBLE Iron Man. He has no finesse.

    Robert Downey Jr. IS Ironman. I like Mark Wahlberg and wish him well, but I would not pay to see anyone except RDJ. And I almost never watch this type of movie but for some reason I really like Ironman.

    Re: MVPnis – Read the whole article. It says he's done after the next avengers meaning plural movies.

    "we guess we'll let him!"
    We who? I'm sorry but no, he'd be aweful as Tony Stark, there's no way he could pull off what RDJ did in the Iron Men and Avenger. Simply because, even if it's bad, it's still watchable BECAUSE of Robert Downey Junior. So yeah, if anyone else takes this role, and especially him because it makes really no sense, I'd boycott Marvel

    Re: Nick – The article actually says "he's done after the next Avengers flick" meaning singular.

    The movies aren't called the Avenger… The AvengerS there are multiple Avengers
