Bad news for the fans of The Avengers. One of their favorite stars, Robert Downey Jr., might be thinking about leaving the famous movies. Robert Downey Jr. has been playing the role of Tony Stark in no less than eight movies, including the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. And he is also set to star in the upcoming Avengers movies.
This surely means that Downey will be quite busy playing a lot of roles linked to his part as the Iron Man. However, it has been revealed that these could actually be the last roles that Downey has when it comes to the Iron Man. So, during a recent interview with Australia’s News.com, Downey claimed that his collaboration with these roles could be coming to an end in the near future. Without a doubt, this would be very disappointing for Iron Man fans from all over the world.
“It’s this cyclical thing. I could have said when the first ‘Avengers’ came out: ‘It’s never going to get any better than that. Everybody stop’. But to me it’s always about people and opportunities, like the Russos, who I adore,” the famous actor explained. “Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven [MCU movies] I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it’s embarrassing,” he said.
It has been claimed that Downey filmed only for three days his role for Homecoming, which was naturally divided throughout the movie. In the movie, the famous actor plays the role of the mentor of Peter Parker, Spider-Man. Downey’s role in the movie is expected to be interesting, as always, so it is yet to see the performance that he achieved. No further details of Downey’s intentions regarding the Iron Man character have been revealed at this point, so it is yet to see what will happen.
