    You can recast any of the Avengers and the franchise can go on... except for Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hiddleston.

      I love Hiddleston, but I really hope he's left out of phase 2. With such a vast array of characters to choose from in the Marvel world it would be a shame to see Loki show up again.

      There is a pitcher with the SF Giants by the name of Tim Lincecum. Sorry if I misspelled his name. He looks close enough to Hiddleston that it should be no problem. As for RDJ, I'm sure he will stay on as Stark until at least the 3rd Avengers movie. No matter how bad/good Avengers 2 will turn out, it will become a trilogy. And with RDJ, I don't think he'll pass up the paycheck for Marvel to keep the continuity the actors. My2cents
    He has good genes, despite all the abuse he looks younger than he is. Maybe he is on the same stuff as Tom Cruise. HGH?

      Facelifts can only do so much before they start to show your age and over stretch your face, maybe that's what RDJ is hinting at. I can tell he's had many jowl lifts, face fillers and skin laser therapy, and that can take its toll. After 50 the face loses a lot of its density around the cheekbones and it becomes a little more difficult to correct that 'tired' look a 40 - 50 year old face can get. Don't get me wrong, the surgery will still be effective, but the continuity with the age of Roberts face will slightly become compromised. The more a person uses these procedures, the less effective they are on your skin over time, because skin stretches, and can't really tighten as effectively at that age. You can see this happening with Tom Cruise when you see him walk the red carpets nowadays. He's got that sullen, tired, overdone surgery look about him now. Also I think the constant bulking up and getting ripped for the iron man roles would be getting harder, especially since RDJ doesn't try to maintain this look when filming is finished. Which means he has to redo his look for every ironman film

    He has to give up the mantle at some point. He's getting up there in age.

    I hope Downey Jr. does it as long as possible, but if not I agree with the James Bond approach. More franchises should be done that way.

      NOoooooooo !!!! Saboteur ! Sacrilege ! How dare you? I'm appalled !

    Seems likely.

    Let's hope he quit the character of Tony Stark after The Avengers 4: Civil War. Never been anxious for a movie in a good way, than for Civil War. Unsaleable without RDJr.

      Thought Avengers was going to be a trilogy?

        The Avengers; general set up. little aversion between Stark and Rogers. The Avengers 2: mediocre aversion between Stark and Rogers. The Avengers 3: full out aversion against each other, but still working for the sake of mankind. The Avengers 4: The amount of damages The Avengers make during A3 cause the government to control supes or outlaw them. Stark can live with that, Rogers no fucking way, thus divide between the supes, thus Civil War. Probably the best action movie ever.

    Tough to replace his personality. Downey and Stark are almost the same person.
  • Joeyjoejoejohnson jr
    Can't he stay on as tony stark and have someone else play iron man.
  • Chris
    Sounds like he's going to disappear up his own backside long before he gets too old for the role.

    As sad as I would be to see him go, I can well understand why after a certain point, he may want to bow out, I mean compared to the other actors in the main Avengers cast, he is one of the oldest. Mind you, there is a storyline in the comics where the Avengers actually brought a younger version of Tony Stark into the present from an alternate timeline, so maybe they can do something like that in the movies? That way they don't have to focus as much on finding someone who looks and acts like Robert Downey, and the change will actually fit in well with the storyline :)

    its okay if there is no Iron Man 4, as long you appear in any installment of Marvel CInematic Universe as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the whatsocalled Avengers!

    I think it would be cool for Tony Stark to have a son by someone and pass on his Iron Man legacy and brain power to that son. Robert Downey Jr. will always be the best Iron Man!!
