As we suspected, yesterday's revelation from Robert Downey Jr. that Marvel had plans for Iron Man 4 has had the reins pulled back. After appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" yesterday, Downey also went over to "The Late Show with David Letterman" on his publicity rounds to promote The Judge hitting theaters this weekend. Letterman also asked him about Iron Man 4, and it sounds like Marvel wanted him to clear things up as well. Downey went back to his old stance saying, "There's no plans for an Iron Man 4. There's no script for Iron Man 4, but they do have a plan and I think they're gonna announce it." Read on!
Here's the Robert Downey Jr. interview from "The Late Show with David Letterman" last night:
The "it" in question doesn't sound like Iron Man 4, but rather whatever their plan for future Marvel movies will be. Could there be an announcement coming from New York Comic-Con this week? We're not sure, but we hope so. In the meantime, Downey also mentioned that just because he's not doing Iron Man 4, doesn't mean he's just leaving Marvel behind. When Letterman circled back around to the topic again, Downey said, "I'm gonna do other stuff with Marvel. I'm still going to be involved with Marvel and there's gonna be plenty of fun stuff to happen." Sounds like Downey knows a lot about what's going on. Stay tuned.
