“Captain America: Civil War” is set for release next week on May 6. The movie will mark Robert Downey Jr.’s seventh appearance as Tony Stark aka Iron Man. This is not the end however; the ardent fans will get to see the arrogant playboy and business magnate reprise his role in “Spiderman: Homecoming” set for release next summer. The 51-year-old recently gave a massive hint which teased that “Iron Man 4” is on its way as well.
“I feel like I could do one more” Downey Jr. said to ABC, when asked about a potential Iron Man 4 in the future.
However, one must note that although there is a potential of a fourth edition of the movie, it doesn’t literally means that the movie is set for release. Downey Jr. had said something like this previously on The Ellen DeGeneres show where he claimed that Iron Man 4 was on its way. However, the two-time Academy Award nominee later clarified that he was speaking about his role on “Captain America: Civil War”.
Civil War will see Chris Evans reprise the role of Captain America and take his Avengers to a new adventure of saving humanity. However, this time he won’t be facing the outright villains he is so used to destroying. Owing to the massive collateral damage the city suffered in the last Avengers movie, a new governing body is setup to oversee and direct the operations of the Avengers.
However, this results in two camps; one is led by Steve Rogers, who believes that the Avengers should remain free to save humanity without any interference from the government. The other camp features Tony Stark, who surprisingly supports the government’s initiative.
The movie is directed by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have written the screenplay of the movie.
Will Robert Downey Jr. make a solo journey once more in Iron Man 4? Nothing concrete is known of yet and the only option is to wait until an official confirmation.
