Fellow nerds can rejoice! Marvel has officially announced that Robert Downey Jr. has signed a contract to return as everyone’s favorite cocky playboy superhero. The statement from Marvel says that RDJ will reprise the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man for The Avengers 2 & 3, so fans hoping for an Iron Man 4 may be disappointed.
Marvel also stated that they want you to keep checking their site for news related to casting as well as announcements about new characters that will be coming to Marvel movies. So if we assume that this news will be characters that Marvel hasn’t mentioned at all yet (so not including Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch, & Quicksilver), what characters do you hope they announce?
She-Hulk anyone? Luke Cage perhaps? Sound off in the comments below!
