Ending weeks of speculation and hand-wringing, Marvel announced Robert Downey Jr. has inked a deal to reprise his role as Tony Stark in The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3.
Robert Downey Jr.’s multi-picture deal with Marvel Studios helped make the Iron Man franchise and The Avengers into blockbusters. But with his contract fulfilled, the actor’s future as Tony Stark is now in question. So where does Marvel go from here?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe may look a bit different in future films as contract demands from Robert Downey Jr. and the cast of The Avengers could lead to new actors donning the now-familiar costumes.
